Pulling feeling / dull aches in the uterus?


Hi ladies,

Have any of you experienced pulling pain or dull ache in the uterus in early pregnancy? We recently found out we are pregnant, and I just missed my period yesterday. But I have occasional stretching/pulling feeling in my uterus. Is that normal? I am worried sick about everything now.

Thanks a lot for any input.

Love,
Amy.

Hi ya,

After all that I have posted here (and everyones great advice) and stuff that I have googled, it seems to be normal, stretching... as it needs to make room for the growing baby.

I actually didnt feel any stretching in m uterus until 2 days ago... but for everyone it is different.

If in any doubt, I am sure your Dr / midwife will put your mind at rest if you call them

Thanks ladies. You have really helped to put my mind at rest. DH wants to wait a couple more days and be reaally sure it is not a chem, so I can't see a doctor till then. I am worrying about everything and feeling rather irritable. Plus, I have these headaches and tiredness.. And a jerk for a boss who keeps stressing me out! Sorry for the rant but feels good to get it out of the system.

it's normal, and last quite a while... i'm nearly 18 weeks and I still get pulling feelings!

heads up to something i experience a lot, if i move to quickly and turn my side, i sometimes get a sharp stabbing pain almost... it's the ligaments stretching! normal normal normal!

as long as the pain isn't REALLY bad, and there's no bleeding with it!

Congratulations on your Amy!!! The pulling sensations will come and go. I am sure everything will be fine. Let us know when you go see the doctor.

Its definitely normal. In my first pregnancy I found these pains very worrying, and kept checking my knickers at every possible opportunity! I'm now into my 2nd pregnancy, and experiencing them again! They were alot worse around the time my period should have been due. They come in waves, and are completely normal. You'll find as your pregnancy progresses, you'll experience new pains/ aches etc. xx

I have the pain you get when you ovulate and have some crampping. Headachs here too, and some dry mouth.I really want the achy feeling to go away myself. But, i heard it is necessary for the growing baby. Prayers to you, and congrats!!

I read your uterus grows 1000 times(!) it's normal size in the 9 mths of pregnancy. So stretching and aching is completely normal!
