#HLWDK Daily Health Tips: Abdominal Pain In Pregnancy


Q: Greetings Dr. Please help advice me. I am 21 weeks pregnant. I had a cervical stitch at 15weeks because of threatened miscarriage. Now I usually have stomachache especially when I lie on my left and right sides but a bit comfortable when I lie on my back but of which I know it is not the best position. Dr. is the regular stomachache normal or it will cause a problem? And what about lying on my back?

A: Hi dear, thanks for writing in.
