Stretching/Pulling sensation in stomach at 10 DPO?
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

BTW this stabbing pain is happening right now and I am not moving - It isn't unbearable by no means just crampy feeling, right now it is consistent.

Well... it sounds like you pulled something. most women don't get it until they're at least a month or so along. I didn't feel it until about 8-9weeks. I'm 15 now and feel it all the time.

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!

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

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.
::Wink Wink::

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.
haha

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?
