I have heard of others post that they had a stretching or pulling senation in their stomach prior to getting a BFP. I was wondering if anyone could confirm this and tell me what it exactly felt like. I have had some strange fellings in my abdominal region and I will try to describe them:
My lower stomach (below my belly button) feels tight and sometimes, when I move a certain way it feels like I am having muscle cramps or a stabbing sensation. The cramping/stabbing senation is isolated on one side and like I said only happens when I move a certain way.
Just wondering if this could be related to pregnancy or if I am just hoping - Thanks, Karen
I have had this and im two days late now. I have also had some orangey/red stuff when i wiped yesterday and today i have a small bit of blood but not enough of it to be my period yet im also getting period pains like cramping, stretching, pulling but AF hasnt quite reared her ugly head yet!
i have just got my BFP and ever since i ovulated i have had a dull, heavy feeling in my stomach with the occasional cramp, much like AF cramps though so it can be really confusing. All i can say is that although the waiting is really horrible and fustrating it really is the only way to know for sure. Hold on and test in a few days - good luck
I tested this morning and got a very very very very faint BFP - I plan on retesting on 3/26 and I am praying for a darker line! I hope so or I will be very disappointed. Just thought I'd update everyone!
i know it may be a lil early to congratulate you but it was a faint line the best of luck to you and lots of very sticky baby dust to you when you retest and if by chance its not what you hoped dont feel disappointed i know its hard not to but theres always next month many woman feel like this as i do but i try to stay positive dont let it get you down my dear :)
well on the 13th i had pink spotting only when i wiped, the next day i had experianced brown like discharge it was not a period what so ever and it came a week early my period never came, i took a hpt over a week ago bfn but im still experiancing the pulling sensation through out the day, i did some research online yesterday about the pulling sensation during early pregnancy and its very common and is considered a symptom for most women
thank you so very much :) i was going to test this morning but i had to pee soo very bad and didnt have time to get my hpt soo ill proly test in the morning, cuz id rather use the morning pee to make my chances of a bfp higher lol sounds crazy i know but i want this so very bad :)
No it doesn't sound crazy. I tested this morning with first morning urine and it was so very faint. I know that if I tested any other time it probably would have been a BFN. I would definitely wait. Good luck and keep me posted!
that would be soo very kool if we were both pregnant had were due around the same time lol i will definetly keep you posted, oh and i just wanted to let you know that if your not taking folic acid now would be a good time to start i read that takin folic acid before and during early pregnancy will help your baby grow heathy it helps with the spinal cord and the brain takin it reduces the chance of having birth defects up to 70 percent
I've been having a really weird tight/stretching feeling as well its very low.... like prob. right where you underwhere line runs across your lower area.. I wear low rise so its about 2 1/2 inches below my belly button!!! w/ a extra warm crampy feeling.... I hope I get a faint line when I test!!!
THANK YOU BOTH, I DONT THINK IT WILL BE SHOWING UP BUT YOU NEVER KNOW, WHEN I GET THAT FEELING IT COMES AND GOES ITS MORE AT NIGHT THO. LACY I KNOW YOU WERE ASKING DURHAM BUT ID THOUGHT ID GIVE MY IMPUT TO COMPARE WITH YOU GUYS THANK U BOTH AGAIN
Well I'm 12 weeks and I already have stretch marks formed and still forming cuz I used to have a pretty tight, flat tummy.
I know... GREAT huh.
But that tight stabbing pain man...
I've been experiencing that also these past maybe I'd say Month?
And it's ONLY on my RIGHT side.
And it only happens when I try to get up only using my stomach muscles to life myself.
I try so hard not to do that anymore, and if I'm on my back I'll roll over onto my stomach then use my arms to lift myself up so I can stand... but once in a while I'll accidentally do it and it HURTS!
I end up having to lay back down till it goes away.
God if I ever ended up in a sticky situation where I had to get up quickly and it meant my life if I didn't, I'd probably be screwed. LOL
I forgot some things,
I mentioned the stretch marks and didn't tell you why.
What I MEANT to say was that that stretching feeling on your tummy is probably your skin trying to stretch to suit your uterus.
Inwhich WILL result in stretch marks MOST LIKELY.
My skin is NOT flexable at all.
So if I don't watch it, I could get them very easily.
I'm gunna be looking into this stuff called coco butter cream and goats milk cream.
It's supposed to make your skin more flexable and should relieve any uncomfortable stretching feelings you may get once you've been using it for a while.
Cuz honestly, I liked my stomach, but now... it's just like, Ugh.
I got a couple, I REALLY don't want anymore... but that's what I get for getting knocked up I guess?
my bbt is higher then its ever been.... i'm up to 98.6 I'm very accurate w/ taking my temps. no one answered my post earlier... i'm 16dpo and if AF was coming would my temps be getting lower not higher????? they've never ever been 98.6. do u think I should retest? and when?
