Re: Pulling sensation in abdomen
Does the pulling feel like a tightening or squeezing? My recommendation is that you see the doctor just to be safe. I say this to almost every woman who has a gut feelign that something might not be right. Most of the time it's nothing, but better safe than sorry. In my case, I waited. I experienced some light menstrual cramping, lower back discomfort along with some tightening sensations in my lower abdomen around 19-20 weeks. At 17 weeks, everything was normal. At 20 weeks, cervix opened after I had rhythmic, albeit slight, contractions lasting overnight. Please see the doctor to be certain. If he or she is dismissive, get a second opinion. The best advice I can give pregnant women is to not be intimidated by doctors. Take charge of your pregnancy. Keep me posted.
