Serious? I'm not sure maybe I'll check w her on my next visit.
But I just go it w gentle massage not really those "scrubbing" kind.

I've been experiencing lower abdomial pain since this morning, like those menses cramp pain. Anyone had this before, I'm worried cuz it has been half a day n it's not subsiding, no blood nothing just pain. I called the clinic n the doc is not available to see me, nurse says if I'm concern can go A&e or GP! Help! How?
I am not sure how gentle the massage is .. But just check with your gynae to play safe. I ever ask my gynae before he told me no massage, unless you go to those specialist in Prenatal massage only at your end 2nd trimester to 3rd trimester.

Hmm.. If your cramp pain prolong till tonight .Go and visit your gynae.. Usually the cramp due to expanding of uterus wont be so that long.. Relax yourself take deep breathe... Keep monitoring..

Pain persist till 1030pm worried, decided to go CGH A&E then realize no gynae there, went don't to KK. Reached at 1130pm

Now 3am finally back from kk. Gynae checked no infection, no signs of miscarriage, no opening pelvis, etc all good. Tried scan for bb heart beat, At first cant hear heartbeat so worried , only relieve when found heartbeat ;) so everything ok doc suspect is ligament tear cuz uterus expanding but unsure. She then gave me a stronger pain killer( ive taken one at home but no help) Let me zzz 30min but still same pain. At first she wanted me admit for observation, I told her if she thinks it's not serious I hope to go back. so she gave me medi, hope tml b better. Haiz though still pain now but Noe Bb ok most impt ;)

Hi gemini11,

Glad both you & baby are fine. Lucky you went for a check. Keep monitoring your pain, if you pain still prolong go and check again. Next time go straight to Kkh where all the gynae are 24 hours. Sometimes some normal hospital they have no gynae.

Mother instinct ...always react to whatever you believe.

For me .. I am always very kiasu .. If I ever encounter any pain within 3 hours pain doesn't stop I will go n check. Sometimes the pain is not due to uterus expanding.. As I have come cross friends that... encounter pain for 2 days then she go to the doc.. But then baby at 25wks already gone.. No heartbeat.. Another one is baby cord around the baby"s neck that cause the incident.

Depends on what kind of pain also...different mummies label "menses cramp" as painful & some think still can torelate. So lucky you are abit sensitive & go for a check up! Take good rest !

Dear Gemini11

Glad to know both mummy n BB ok. Hope ur pain will soon cease. Know how anxious u muz hv felt until u hear the BB's heartbeat. Everytime I went for gynae follow up, I breathe better after hearing my BB's heartbeat. Guess all mums or MTB feel the same.

If your pain still persist, may be better to call ur gynae n seek relevant advice. If required, do admit into the hospital. At least u hv the medical expertise close by. Will feel more assured. Tk good care ya.

guess i better start monitoring when the pain comes..

Hi sweetoothz,

Haha .. How can I be so powerful.. 3am i wake up for wee wee.. Haha.. Can't get back to sleep.
Ya.. Sometimes "cramps" can leads to such complications! The both incidents my friends encountered there is no bleeding.. Only pain cause baby is struggling for his life inside.. The movement is so intense that cause the cramp.

It's always safe to take the trouble to check.. How I wish our tummy is transparent during pregnancy.. At Least we can monitoring the condition inside. Hahaha ...

Pregnancy is always full of challenges, A moment of fear.. Next moment of happiness! Jia you mummies.. Everyone will be alright !

hehehhe luckily nowadays i dont wake up anymore for a wee wee.. hehehhe

then like that how do i tell which cramping is cause by the uterus expanding and which is the one i need to take note of?? any pointers? *semi-panic mode*

nah i dont wanna it to be transparent cz it'll be kinda disgusting to see it form. (i think i watch too much videos on how babies are formed plus im a person who easily gets disgusted hehhe). i wish like we can feel more just in case if the cord is wrapped around our bb's neck. then liddat i can feel the pulling n tugging or struggling hehhe..

i have to second ur statement. one day i'll be feeling worried, then the next ok n at times keep thinking of birthing methods n like today i'm uber so excited to see n have my bb in my arms already! hehehe.. all in all must b positive!! jia you babes!! xxx

Hi sweetoothz,

No choice I am a water drinker. I drink at least 2 -3 litres of water everyday. I want to make sure I am well hydrate.. Baby drinking get sufficient water & pee more. If baby doesn't drink sufficient I will effect his kidneys (kidneys will be bigger) if he doesn't urine..that much, leads to decreasing of amniotic fluid.

Usually uterus expanding cramp doesn't last very long. Cos" your uterus wont expand suddenly..& quickly. The level of pains differently for mummies, no matter what used your own instinct. I always believe that you can feel the baby"s danger if he/she is encountering inside.

Hmmm... Touch wood... I never ever want to feel baby"s struggle..pulling & tugging. By then he/she already in danger.

Haha I never watch baby formed (just once), birthing method I never think so much also. By watching too much you will have more fear.
Most of my friends who watch alot of such videos (thinks that all these helps in delivery) but sad to say no. Once u enter delivery room, you are in pain already.. By watching all these too much.. Bad images will reflect on your mind that makes you fear.

All pregnancy are different... So again used you own instinct to push your baby! How many wk are you now ??

Jia you !

Gal, I got more worried after reading this online ytd
"Take abdominal pain seriously, esp if it goes beyond your normal comfort level. If the pain is accompanied by any other symptoms, or if it doesn't go away when you lie down or rest, call your practitioner immediately. Severe pain is often your body's way of telling you that something is wrong, so don't ignore it"

And I guess it's better I got it check at least now not so worried knowing bb is fine

Hi gemini11,

Start to practice proper breathing method.. Maybe you are too tense. Just relax do something like listening to music, watch online movies you won't keep thinking that it's painful. Keep monitoring .. If still not good .. go again to see a gynae.

Positive mind very important ! Don't think too much. Everything will be fine. Can you feel your baby movements already?? If yes.. Try to massage your tummy... Talk to baby ask baby don't stretch..

Went for check up today and receive my blood test report. Lucky is low risk and gynae say no need to do amino test. Wanted to know the gender of my baby but my baby cover with leg, don't let me see. I scolded baby naughty and my gynae laugh at me hehe. My gynae also surprised why I still lose weight instead of gaining weight. But then my baby is growing well so I guess my baby took all my nutrients.

it's good that ur drinking. i am not. i only drink when i feel thirsty. i not much of a drinker when pre-preggers too. now must drink more liao.. hehhe

guess i will pay the doc a visit when the cramping gets worse than the usual cramping i've experiencing.

to me, the more i see them, the more i will kinda get prepared for the pain n stuffs. i'm kinda detailed person so i need to know what is gg to happen on the day itself and how is it gg to be. i'll go bonkers if i dont get down to the small2 details even.. ehhehe

i turn 18 weeks tmr n can't wait to see the lil one after xmas for my detailed scan.. =))

oh i've been experiencing some how like a muscle stretch right below my right ribcage n it goes down for about say 5cm? i hope it's just a muscle pull cz i got them like 2 tyms already on 2 diff days. and where would u say the bb is now position in our belly? any idea? just wondering where the head is now.. hehehe
