pulling pain

I am 4 weeks and 2 days. I keep getting this pulling pain in my right side every now and again. Is this normal? My hcgs were at a 100 if that makes a differance.

I had that too before I knew I was pregnant (I didn't find out until I was 6 weeks) but it was on my left.  I researched it then and it said it was normal as long as its not accompanied by spotting or bleeding. This only lasted a few weeks for me then it turned into more of a dull ache.  As long as there is no spotting, its probably just your uterus stretching, especially if this is your first pregnancy. :)

It's probably round ligament pain it's totally normal as long as it only lasts a few seconds. It's your body stretching to make room for baby. If its lasting too long I would call your doctor :)

I discovered my pregnancy at 4 & 1/2 weeks and I have NEVER noticed more symptoms. I have had mild cramping/pulling for 3 weeks now and I have actually gotten used to it. Of course, I have read a TON of things online to see if each symptom is "normal". According to everything I've read, most mild cramping/pulling is normal during early pregnancy as long as it isn't accompanied by bleeding. I have my first appointment Dec 6 (at 9 weeks) and I have a huge list of questions ready!
