Your Body at Week 24
Experiencing abdominal pains in pregnancy are always worrying. Although they are not always a cause for worry that your baby is at risk. Extra strain on your ligaments and the enlarging of the uterus can cause twinges and aches in the lower abdomen. Pains like these are quite normal around this week of pregnancy.
If however, the pains are not going away, i suggest calling your GP or midwife to book an appointment to make sure everything is A-OK in there and to put your mind at ease.
