pressure in my lower abdominal area....pregnant?

Hello Ladies,

I've been having pressure in my lower abdominal area for the past two or three weeks. Some days it's stronger than others.
The thing is, I'm still nursing and haven't gotten my period back yet so I don't know if I've ovulated. But it's been over two weeks since I've been feeling this so I should have gotten my period by now if it was ovulation pain. Do you think I could be pregnant? I took some HPT's over a week ago and they were negative, but I thought maybe it was too early yet. I'm tired of testing. This would be my fourth pregnancy...did anyone experience this uterine pressure when pregnant? Especially with a third or fourth pregnancy?
    I've also been getting light-headed when standing quickly, my breasts are a little sore, (but then again I'm nursing)
and have little bouts of nausea every so often...
I will test soon, but meanwhile...can anyone relate?
Thanks a million.

Yes I had this.  I felt full in my lower area in my uterus.  When I orgasmed I cramped afterwards. Just as you describe.  

I thought maybe I was getting Pelvic Inflammatory Disease or a bladder infection. I went to the doctor to get checked (u should to) and it turned out I was pregnant.  

Good luck,

Vicki

It was my first pregnancy.  My doctor said that the pressure I was feeling in my lower abdominal area was my uterus growing at a fast rate.  You may not of had these symptoms with your previous pregnancies, but they do say pregnancies can be different :)

Congrats on the positive test!

yes i have pressure heavy like sensation for about 1.5 weeks. I have sore breasts, I don't feel myself. I have been really tired the last 2 days but days before I felt like i had alot of energy. On and off i've felt like I was gonna get a cold  over the past 1.5 weeks but never got one.. I woke up with sniffles and i'd get them before bed, I NEVER get those usually. i'm due for my period on the 14th of march and yesterday i was walking around walmart and got sharp pains on the left side of my pelvic bone and the same pain the day before upon waking. my boobs are really wore. I started feeling some breast discomfort only about 3 dpo and just got worse everyday. I wonder if i am pregnant. I took a HCG test yesterday but got a BFN! :(

Hi everyone. I have been on a lot of sites and I am finding that a lot of people are in the same boat as me. I went off birth control in December because my insurance ran out and my boyfriend and I were practicing the "pull out" method. We had sex about 12 days after my last period. I immediately felt different. I can't explain it.It's been about 5 days now and I have had cramping in my uterus area, lower than normal period cramps and a lot of pressure. Sometimes I feel like a bubble or slight pain. I feel bloated and my boobs are slightly sore. I have had discharge but no more than normal and I didn't see the color because I had dark underwear on. I started to smell things today that my coworkers can't smell but sometimes that happens when I am getting a sinus infection (although I have no other symptoms of that). Also when I try and go poop the pressure increases but only when I try (lately I have been constipated). I have been tired lately but I am a special ed teacher so I am always tired.

All of you say you have similar things but what was your outcome? I wont get my period for another week. Any advice?

my last period was on the 28th of may and was suppose to ovulate on the 8th or so of this month. last month i had a scare but i got my period but it was lighter then normal. i now have cramping but like a pressure feeling in my uterus that i've never felt before. i'm not trying to concieve (conceive) but that would be great if i did! anyone experience the same thing? oh i'm im not suppose to get my next period until the 22nd.

Sometimes mind to play tricks on us. Especially when we're trying to have one. I always get paranoid everytime my period is late and I wasted so much money on hpt!!! And I actually found out I was when I stopped thinking or waiting...
I had bad cramping for like a week and also had to take a day off from work because the pain comes and go and it was very very painful! I thought it was my period coming...but never came until my friends convinced me to take hpt and it was a BIG FAT +IVE!! Now I have a healthy 6month old baby boy in my arms!!!
Blessing do come when you don't wait for it..it will come on the right time!!!
...and the reason why I'm on his forum/site is because I'm having the same symptoms as my first! Hmm..another blessing for us?
Baby dust to us all!!!

Hi all i need your help! Im 15days late! Ive taken 5 pregnancy tests and were all negative. I went to the doctor yesterday and had a blood test so im waiting on the results of this. For over a week now ive been getting a weird pain in my right ovary, well not really a pain more discomfort. Then since yesterday ive been gettin pressure pains in ovaries. Neither feels like period pains. Doctor said its unlikely im pregnant as 5 pregnancy tests results were negative. I havnt really been having any other pregnancy symptoms. Has anyone any ideas what this could be? Could i be pregnant? I dont have the patience to wait for the results of the bloods. Thanks!
