Q:

Hello Momies & experts, I am 22+ weeks pregnant, having lower abdominal left side on and off pain, simultaneously my lower back also has little heaviness. can't sleep whole night. is it something I should rush to doctor or wait. please advise.

it's normal dear...its due to weight and strechness of uterus

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hello Harshita..
Firstly, Make sure that you get all the rest that you can. As your belly gets larger, sleeping may become more difficult. There are many reasons you may have trouble sleeping...Now that you are in your second trimester of pregnancy, you start to feel Braxton-Hicks contractions, or false labor pains...
So no need to worry , until you are feeling fetal movements n kicks normal and no excruciating pain or contractions or bleeding leaking or spotting.. if u r still worried then get a checkup done...

Thanks Dr. Shilpitha, rest all is normal but fetal movements n kick is not started yet. but while  scanning I can see my baby moving. hope this is normal too.
