    I've had a pain in my belly all day. Not like an ''ouch'' pain, more like a dull ache and I feel like it tightens every so often. I'm 3/4 weeks. Can anyone tell me if this is normal?

    I don't mean to worry but I didn't find out I was preg first time around until 10/11 weeks so I'm not sure what is/isn't normal.

    TIA

    This is so common in early pregnancy. I got lots of aches/cramps/pulling sensations when I was 4, 5 weeks and I even got a few the other night.
    Nothing to worry about sweet :)

    Yes it's normal, I have noticed more stomach aches during my pregnancy then ever before. Mine normally get worse in the morning when I am laying down. Later in the day it turns into a dull pulling feeling in my abdomen (just the uterus stretching). Good luck and wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months!

    Perfectly normal as your uterus is starting to stretch, happened in my first pregnancy and noticing it now (4w) with the second.

    I was worried too- had the same thing. Cramps, abdominal pain. But was also reassured that it's the uterus stretching and the body getting ready for a growing baby. I'm still looking forward to the first ultra sound though- want to put my worries to rest and see that the baby is indeed okay.
