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.
