Twinges + pulling


Hi Girls,

I m sure this as been asked a million times but does anyone get feelings of pulling or a little twitch in their lower abdomen.

It feel like something is pulling in my uterus, i haven t had coffee for ages and this morning before work i got a take away latte (small)

Maybe its LO all active? Haven t felt this many before? So i wondering if it my uterus strecthin or if i am getting my first feelings of movement?

Could be Braxton Hicks, or maybe LO pushing out, or tension in your uterus from overdoing it, or just stretching pains! I wouldn't worry though, unless it becomes very painful or you have any other funny feelings. I'm amazed by the diversity of feelings I can get in my uterus!

I think stretching pains are normal and are all part and parcel of pregnancy!

It sounds like stretching pains to me. I had this from early on and as bump got bigger i found it got quite bad when i was walking. I got a 'bump belt' it's like a velcro sling you put under your bump (can't see it under cloths) it just supports the bump and eases the pains.

Yep sounds like stretching pains to me, I have had them on and off throught the pregnancy so far, and still get the period like cramp every now and again.

I felt silly for asking , but i thought it might be strectching.

But i m feeling movement today, i m almost 17 weeks so i know its normal to begin within 16-20 weeks.

But i was shocked as i haven t been overdoing it or running anywhere, nothing out of the ordinary really.

Well, I guess your insides have to strech somewhere to accomodate the baby! It just feels weird coz it's internal stretching!

I've been having stretching pains pretty much the entire time. Sometimes they are shooting pains or the sides. Sometimes they are a mildly painful stretch across the lower abdomen.

Like everyone said, they are totally normal and common. Just the uterus making room for babe!
