Any pain in the abdomen of a pregnant woman causes concern, and in the first place everyone is afraid of the tone of the uterus. If you still do not know, involuntary uterine contractions are the most common threat to pregnancy today. That is why the first assumption that all women make: I have a tone!
Some pregnant women are ready to call their doctor every time they experience a nausea attack in the first trimeter, while others stoically ignore even scheduled consultations. However, if you have a heaviness in the abdomen or pain, it is better, first of all, to contact a doctor and not to church, for example.
Is it always?
With the tone of the uterus, women are often confused with many other pregnant pains. For example, in the first – the beginning of the second trimester, pain may occur associated with a change in the location of the organs in your body. A growing baby will need a lot of space, so even in the case where the doctor has not diagnosed the tone of the uterus, the pain may continue.
In the second trimester, pain may also appear, for example, because the baby does not like your body position, and he will protest with all his limbs against the pressure on his personality 🙂
Every pregnant woman should provide herself and the little man a sparing lifestyle, avoiding unnecessary physical and psychological stress. When the next call from the indignant client was given a pain in my stomach, I went home, lay down on the sofa and seized my grief with a pill of the good old no-shpa.
Usually, the stress-induced tone left me pretty quickly — in an hour or two. But one day, the stomach remained firm, and when walking there were unpleasant sensations and pain.
A trip to the doctor showed that the baby decided that it would be more convenient for him to lie across the uterus, substituting my back for my access. So when I felt my tummy, it seemed to me that I had a tone.
By the way, I advise you not to get involved in feeling – it also causes reciprocal contractions of the uterus and enhances the tone. Most importantly, do not be discouraged if the doctor has made you such a diagnosis – today there are a lot of means to solve this problem.
