Is lower abdominal pain considered normal in the 18th week of pregnancy ?
Hello Doctor! Im 28 yrs old and 18 weeks pregnant now. My lower abdominal(at CENTER place) was paining last 2 days, last night I felt a stretch at LEFT side (I felt like it is head of the baby :)) and my pain got relieved completely after that. Later that Im not feeling any baby movement. Please advise me what was the reason of the lower abdominal pain? whether it is normal activity only? Thanks in advance.
You need not worry. You will not feel much of baby's movements at 18 weeks of pregnancy. Visit your doctor if the movements are completely stopped or if the pain continues or if its with other symptoms, like burning micturition or bleeding etc.
