So we just got our official BFP this morning. The last 4-5 days I have been feeling pulling/stretching/sore muscles in my abdomen. I know the baby is the size of a poppyseed so even with everything its not taking up that much room! Yet my muscles are all tight and feel like I did a super intense ab workout.
This is my 3rd pregnancy and I have never experienced it before… even in late pregnancy. Its so bizarre and kind of freaking me out.
Has anyone else experienced this in early pregnancy?

I did! In fact it was one of the first symptoms I had, even before I got my BFP. It went away a few weeks later only for it to show up again in my 3rd trimester.

I get this too 🙂 I’m almost 8 weeks along. It’s definitely a super odd feeling – this is my first, so I just thought it was normal XD

mel2 : I definitely had some cramping and pain during the first tri. I am now 22 weeks. I did notice that I had it worse when I hadnt drank enough that day. I wouldnt worry if it is not accompanied with bleeding!

Had this with my first pregnancy but not the second! I would call it ‘cramping’ but it wasn’t quite the same thing – more as you describe, a pulling/stretching sensation.
Had nothing with this pregnancy though!

They were worse with my second pregnancy. They were terrible.
