Any woman who has ever been a mother knows body aches and pain in pregnancy times and abdominal cramps are a part of pregnancy pains. It is something that is a part of pregnancy and has to be borne but sometimes it can even spell danger that you may not be aware of. We bring you here a summary of the various pains which occur during pregnancy and the reasons behind them. Read on…

There are many reasons why pain in the abdomen can occur during pregnancy. These are intense pain that may be generally experienced by non-pregnant women due to bloating or gastric issues. In pregnant women, however, the causes can be the same or different than these.

Types of Pain During Pregnancy

A woman may experience abdominal pain (stomach pain) during the weeks of pregnancy due to a variety of reasons. Some of these are as follows:

Muscular Pains

Mostly when a pregnant woman experiences severe pain in her body, it is nothing more than muscle strain or muscles stretching to accommodate the baby growing within her. Along with this soreness, you will also see an increase in weight and growing breasts, hips, and feet, and other changes in your health condition which make you discomfort during pregnancy

Ligament pain

Ligaments are structures that keep your womb in place and they stretch during pregnancy as the womb grows in size. These ligaments start to soften and grow, once a woman gets pregnant and if they get tightened or irritated during pregnancy, the woman who is pregnant may experience severe belly pain or belly button pain.

Digestive issues

Pregnancy body aches or pain during pregnancy can be caused more often than not by nothing more serious than general gas, constipation or bloating, which are a part of pains during the months of pregnancy. Hormonal fluctuations, which happen during the first and second trimester of pregnancy are quite often the culprits for this kind of pain too. During the last semester, pain can be blamed on gas, if it is accompanied by heartburn. Here are some of the wonderful tips for a healthy pregnancy.


Sometimes when you are experiencing pains in your body during pregnancy, it might be nothing but a normal cramp. I know that it seems unfair to be having cramps on top of experiencing the other pains which are a part and parcel of pregnancy, but there you are. Such kinds of pains can cause mild and dull discomfort in your body.


If a pregnant woman suddenly starts experiencing severe pains in her stomach, it is telling about the sign of miscarriage. Such pains are usually unbearable and make it difficult for the pregnant woman in question, to even stand straight, as she usually doubles over from the pain.
