Hi there,

I'm 17 weeks along and I have this pulling stretching sensation all the time.  It started around 8 or 9 weeks.  I think that's when I noticed my clothes getting slightly tighter.  Now it's completely obvious that those muscles have pulled and stretched.  I think it's a sensation that you'll probably get used to from here on out.  Just take it easy and be careful with your movements so that you don't pull something.  When I was 12 weeks along I felt like I pulled something in my stomach by vaccuming and it's not like I'm an out of shape person.  I workout 4-5 times a week.  Take care. Congrats on your pregnancy.

When you go to the bathroom is it dangerous you could pull muscles or hurt the baby?  I know this sounds really like a gross, weird question.  However, I have been worried, because I have been so constipated and have to push really hard to go to the bathroom.  Should I be worried?
