Is it normal...

Oh how to explain it. Not in vaginal since, but more in the uterus. Is it normal to feel like its tight, or tighting. Sometimes when I turn over on my side it feels like its tight. Other times it feels like its expanding and thats why its tight. I honestly dont know if any of this is normal. My first time of any of this so I dont know what to expect.

  • Can that happen thoughout the pregnancy? Im 12 weeks along, and the feeling isnt an everyday occurance. Should I be worried though? I have a doctor appointment tomorrow so should I tell them about that as well?

  • Is it up in your belly or down under your pelvic bone?

  • Below the belly. (i have a pooch of a stomach, but the tightening sensation always felt like it was coming below) There were a couple times it felt like it was somewhere near the pelvic bone. The feeling started after the first month, but its not always consitant, I can go a week without the feeling, and then one night i turn and theres this tightening. Nothing painful, just a weird feeling.

  • How far along are you? It sounds like the normal aches and pains of pregnancy, your body is trying to adjust so it can accomodate the baby but it doesn't hurt to ask your doctor
