Pregnancy is one of those experiences that sound amazing and alarming at the same time. On the one hand, growing a new life inside your body is magical. On the other hand, your body is changing so much; there are times when being pregnant is not a walk in the park. If you don’t always feel like a glowy pregnant lady, you are not alone.
The more we recognize how uncomfortable and frustrating pregnancy can be, the better we can handle the not-so-pleasant physical changes that occur. If you’ve ever wondered if your pregnancy discomfort is normal, take the quiz below to find out why you may be experiencing certain types of pain.
When Should You See a Doctor about Your Discomfort?
There are many twinges of pain or discomfort during pregnancy that are no big deal. Your body is changing dramatically as you create new life within it. However, if some new, painful change happens very quickly and severely, and is accompanied by other symptoms such as fever or vaginal bleeding, call your doctor.
You should also call your doctor even if you’re pretty sure what you’re feeling is normal. It’s better to feel silly and know for sure than to ignore a new pain during pregnancy.
