Abdominal Pain:

One of the most common ways to recognize appendicitis during pregnancy is by noticing a pain in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen that will not go away. Appendicitis pain is not like cramping. This pain is something that starts out as a light pain and gradually builds up to an unbearable pain. This pain is usually located between the navel and the pelvic bone. Instead of getting better, the pain seems to get worse by the minute. Usually if you put pressure on the area where the pain is located, it will get worse.

Vaginal Bleeding:

Appendicitis during pregnancy usually leads to vaginal bleeding. Sometimes this bleeding can be very light and other times it can be very heavy. The vaginal bleeding usually does not cease and is usually accompanied by severe pain. The vaginal bleeding may also be accompanied by a foul order.

There are several appendicitis symptoms to watch out for during pregnancy. These symptoms could include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. However, be aware that nausea, vomiting and diarrhea may not be signs of appendicitis. These are very common pregnancy related symptoms. A high fever that does not go away almost always accompanies appendicitis. Sometimes, the abdominal area will swell. The swelling may be hard to notice depending on what stage of the pregnancy the mother is in. These symptoms combined with pain are usually a good way to recognize appendicitis during pregnancy.
