The patient will be in urgent need of a quick and accurate decision. The means of management will depend on the ability to differentiate between these problems to achieve an optimal diagnosis. Materials and methods 30 pregnant females attended a private obstetric ultrasound clinic with clinical picture of acute abdomen with pregnancy. All were subjected to an ultrasound exam, the results were recorded, and the final diagnosis was reached based on the postoperative results. Results Patients were classified according to their duration of pregnancy into cases with acute abdomen that occurred during the first trimester, during the second trimester, during the third trimester, and in the early postpartum period. Conclusion Ultrasonography is a valuable tool for detecting the etiology and guiding the management in cases of emergency situations faced by the obstetrician and gynecologist during pregnancy and the early postpartum period.
