Does anyone fell a light ache in your uterus? I almost think I can feel my uterus growing and stretching... maybe it is just gas. I don't remember having any feeling for a long time with my other two. I still feel like my period is coming any moment...

i feel small twinges here and there, but a lot of it is just gas. i can feel some slight round ligament pain as well. for a while it felt like my period would start any moment, but now it is less like that and more like a "delicate" feeling in my uterus. i'm 4w, 2d, so technically i'm only 2 days past when af is due.

I feel something similar. Trying to go with it.

There's an article on Mothering's main page about achey uterus in the early weeks of pregnancy...

Here

Yes, I can feel my uterus. Sometimes it is painful twinges and sometimes it is just little ache.

My whole lower abdominal area has been kinda achy. Some combination of uterus, other muscles, gas, whatever plus a shot of RL pain on the right side. Fortunately that was short lived.

Heh. I have aches and twinges and can feel my uterus this time around. I thought it was all the ab work and Pilates I'd been doing in a Bellyfit class I signed up for this fall. Guess not.

I definitely still have faint twinges. It is almost like I am just more conscious of it than I normally am. I wonder why?

I have been feeling strechy and very different than the last two pregnancies. I also have round ligament pain when I bend the wrong way. I probably never got any of my muscle tone back from the first two- woops

I am totally hyper-aware of my womb in early pregnancy. There's a constant throbbing/fullness and every once in a while I feel sharper twinges. I like to imagine my healthy little one really burrowing in deep when that happens. It's always in the same place, too, I'm curious to know if that's where the little bean implanted!

Peaceful mama to three blissfully-birthed and incredible small people: dd10, dd7 and ds5. Always awed and so thankful to be a midwife.
