Is pregnancy always going to be uncomfortable?

My lower belly has been cramping for like the past 3 weeks and its just so annoying will it ever go away or am i stuck with it for the rest of my pregnancy? Plus im constipated and i think that pushes on my uterus causing more pain. what can i do?

  • It's normal to cramp a bit in early pregnancy, but it should go away. If it doesn't, or if you're past the first trimester, you might want to talk to your doctor about the cramping. For the constipation, you can try taking fiber supplements (Metamucil, Benefiber, etc.), they're safe during pregnancy. Just follow the dosing instructions, and (fair warning) it may cause some gas, but it should help relieve that.
