I am 12 weeks pregnant and have been getting stomach aches quite often mostly after I eat. But sometimes I'll wake up in the middle of the night with a bad stomach ache.. Did anyone else have this problem? What could it be from?
I only got heartburn for a while
Morning sickness doesn't just have to hit in the mornings and it doesn't just have to last the first trimester. This could be what it is for you, stomach aches. for every body its different, and for every pregnancy. My poor aunt has hyper emesis for the whole 9 months she was preggo, and that was 16 years ago, not so nice!
Hopefully your bellyaches will subside with time:D
So do you think the stomach aches could be a cause of Morning sickness? The only morning sickness I've gotten was at 7 weeks till 8 and a half I was always nausous and had the urge to throw up constently, but never have. Thankfully!
Progesterone slows down your digestive tract. It is helps to allow you more time to absorb the nutrients out of your food. That is why you might feel pain or bloated etc after meals. It also causes constipation because the longer it stays in your digestive tract, the more water is absorbed out of it. So, costipation might be your stomach ache in the middle of the night. Try a stool softener. Be careful of gas causing foods. Once the placenta is able to produce the hormones to sustain the pregnancy on it's own these will ease a little bit. good luck and feel better

Yeah, I got that too, but it was just gas...well mine was...this is a little embarrassing, but to get rid of the gas...(you all are gonna think I'm a weirdo) I sat on my knees, then bent over forward so my butt is in the air and my head is laying on the bed, couch...whatever...lmao...gas escapes...sorry, that was weird...I've never admitted to doing it before!
