Hello ~ This is my first pregnancy so every little weird feeling freaks me out. I am in either my 7th or 8th week and have experienced mild period like cramping, which my Dr. said was normal but just not had a pinching or tugging like pain in my right side of my stomach. Is this also normal? I cannot find any info. on the internet about pinching pain. Has anyone else experienced this? Any info. would help! Thanks!

Hi This is my first pregnancy too and i have pinching pain on my left side, but i have a cyst on my left ovary, maybe you should ask your doctor for a scan to see whats going on inside, i am also 8 weeks too and have the cramping pain which i was told is normal as the baby is growing. i hope this info is useful, goodluck.

Pinching, cramping, pulling, etc. these feelings are all very common in pregnancy. Your uterus is stretching and therefore is stretching the surrounding ligaments. You will get funny feelings, very often you will even have a "full feeling" - like you just ate a very large meal. All of this is common to an extent. Abnormal cramping - as in with a miscarriage - is usually much more severe. I wouldn't worry if I were you. Stressing yourself out will only cause more harm than good. - October 14

Thanks everyone for your input! My husband keeps telling me the same things; not to stress out about everything. I had an ultrasound a week ago and we saw the heart beat so I feel a little better! I will feel much better once I'm past my 12th week though!
