Q. 10 weeks pregnant, stomach pain. My sister is 10 weeks pregnant and she is suffering from stomach pain from week 5 until now. I am Just wondering is it normal to have stomach pain when pregnant? and dose it go away after 12 weeks? This is her first pregnancy so please educate us.

A. hmm...my wife also felt pain during those weeks (5th..? maybe 4th...? up to the 11th- not sure) but it was not constant and not very painful. she went to her gyno who checked her out and told her it's the uterus stretching but it's good that she comes to check it out cause who knows.. don't take a chance.

Q. what kind of diet/food is good for helping with a stomach ache?

A. Stomach ache alone without diarrhea? You should eat more rice and bread and less meat, dairy and fruit. If you have diarrhea you should avoid fruit (except apples and bananas), and avoid milk products completely.
