Lower Abdominal Pains and Bladder discomfort
I am just over five months pregnant and experiencing lower abdominal pains. It also feels very heavy around my bladder area and also get back pain. I had my five months sonar and the gynae was happy with everything. It was just a few days after my visit to him that I started to feel this discomfort.
I phone my GP and he asked me if their was any blood and I said
no. So he told me I must just drink some Panado's just as long as I can feel the baby moving inside and there is no blood it is fine.
I had these pains early in my pregnancy as well. It is actually not pain it is just a constant soreness. I am a bit worried. I feel fluttering movements very low around my bladder area. Is it the baby kicking?

Does not sound like anything to worry about. Heavy feeling is common in pregnancy
