hi..welcome to HC magic. congratulations and welcome to motherhood. Lower abdominal pain in early pregnancy is a common complaint. Usually it is mild uterine cramps. Apart from that, gastritis and reflux is also common which occurs due to increased pregesterone levels in blood. Avoid spicy foods, caffeine containing beverages such as coffee, tea and also chocolates. If u are having severe discomfort, u can take an antacid for few days. If the pain is due to uterine cramps, it will spontaneously subside over a period of time.
