Why do I feel my lower abdomen swelling during pregnancy?What are the common reasons?

Some pregnant mothers often feel that the lower abdomen falls, and sometimes go to the toilet without alleviating. Watch out if it is the reason for the fetus?In fact, the bloating of the abdomen during pregnancy is very common, and there are usually several cases:

1. diarrhea

Like when I was not pregnant, diarrhea occurred because of unclean diet, gastroenteritis, oral drugs, etc., and it would feel like a lower abdomen.

2. vaginitis

During pregnancy, due to the rise in estrogen and progesterone levels and changes in living habits, the vaginal ecosystem changed, and pregnancy itself became a high risk factor for vaginitis.

Vaginitis usually has symptoms such as leucorrhea and itching. Vaginal inflammation can also stimulate the cervix and other parts, congestion and inflammation reactions, causing lower abdomen swelling.

3. Urinary infection

Urinary infection is that we often call urethritis. Some people often show frequent urination, urgency, dysuria and fever.Symptoms are very typical, and some people are not so obvious.They just feel frequent urine and lower abdomen.If you do urine routine, you can clearly know if the urinary system is infected.

4. Pelvic bruise

In the pelvic cavity, there is a very rich venous network that is responsible for collecting and transporting venous blood.During the pregnancy, due to the large increase in blood supply to the pelvic cavity, and the continuous compression of the uterus on the pelvic vein, compared with the non -pregnancy period, the blood of the pelvic vein increased by about 50%during pregnancy.The increasing vein of the expansion volume squeeze the pelvic space, which will make the pregnant mother feel the swelling of the lower abdomen.After standing, sitting, and exhausted for a long time, the swelling of the small abdomen may increase.

5. Hemorrhoids

During pregnancy, the hemorrhoids worsen due to the congestion of the pelvic vein, which will make us feel the swelling of the lower abdomen.In addition, constipation is prone to occur during pregnancy.Constipation can also exacerbate hemorrhoids, leading to swelling in the lower abdomen.

6. Spell abortion, premature birth or near production

In these cases, uterine contraction may occur.

The strong uterine contraction will feel pain, that is, we often call "pain in childbirth."

Mild, irregular, non -collapsed uterine contraction can cause a sense of lower abdomen.Many pregnant mothers describe this slight contraction as "like a aunt (usually there is no feeling of dysmenorrhea)", "small belly falling down", "the small belly is swollen, tightness" and so on.

In the late pregnancy (≥28 weeks), the uterus often occurs mild contraction, causing the lower abdomen to swell.

7. Uterine fibroids

The incidence of uterine fibroids is very high among women, and women in about one -third of childbearing age may suffer from uterine fibroids.

Many pregnant mothers suffer from uterine fibroids before pregnancy. They are very small and do not want to deal with it. However, during pregnancy, due to the significant increase in estrogen and progesterone, the growth rate of uterine fibroids in the body has also accelerated.At this time, the pressure of uterine fibroids to pelvic cavity, intestine and bladder may feel abdominal swelling.In addition, when uterine fibroids grow rapidly during pregnancy, fibroid degeneration occurs.In the early stages of fibroid degeneration, the symptoms of pain were not obvious, and it may also be manifested as a lower abdomen swelling.

What should I do if I always feel about falling abdomen during pregnancy?

If the abdomen is swollen after sitting or lying for a long time, the pregnant mother can get up appropriately.If the abdomen swelling occurs after standing for a long time, it will be rest at this time.

By changing the position, the blood of the body can be circulated, and the discomfort of the lower abdomen can be reduced.

If there are severe symptoms, seek medical treatment in time

If you have the following symptoms, you should receive the doctor’s examination and treatment as soon as possible:

1. Discover signs of threatened early pregnancy and threatened abortion;

2. Infectious diseases (such as urinary systems and vaginitis) before pregnancy, diarrhea symptoms begin to occur during pregnancy;

3. Small abdomen swelling is the first time that it has appeared frequently, frequent attacks, symptoms have not eased or even worsen, or accompanied by small abdominal pain at the same time.
