Q&A: Is It Normal To Have Abdominal Pressure?

Is it normal to have abdominal pressure in the first trimester?

Pressure in the groin isn't a common complaint from women early in their pregnancy — it's much less likely than cramps and nausea. It's definitely worth mentioning to your doctor since it could be a warning sign of miscarriage, especially if it's severe or accompanied by cramping or bleeding. But if it's mild and you don't have any other scary symptoms, it's probably nothing serious.
