Question Is tightness in the abdomen a sign of pregnancy???

Hey guys...I wrote earlier. I might be pregnant. I was just wondering if tightness in the abdomen is a sign of pregnancy? I have had a lot of that feeling. A friend of mine told me that is a sign. Did any of you have tightness in the abd. in the early weeks of pregnancy??

Thanks

When was your last AF? You will get a pulling feeling in your belly if you are. Take a test if you are curious. Good luck.

My last AF was August 8th...so I am almost 2 months late. I have definitely felt the tighness in my abdomen and the past couple of days I have felt a little nauseous..but nothing too serious. I really haven't had any typical pregnancy symptoms other than being late and the tightness in the abdomen, so I don't know what to think really.

I took 3 HPT and al three were negative. I am going to the doctor to get a blood test Friday, so I will know for sure then. But from what I have told you...do you think I am pregnant???

Thanks

I had that feeling all weekend. I guess I've gotten used to it because I don't notice it as much now.

All pregnancies are different- some women get lots of symptoms, others don't.

I think you really could be, especially being so late. If the test does come up neg though, I would see your doctor about why you're so late

Today I have felt not only tightness in the abdomen, but also slight cramps. And I am having to pee more than usual. Are these signs??

I have a doctor's appt for Friday to get a blood test, so I will let all of you know how that goes. But until then - what do you think of my "signs"? Are they true pregnancy signs?
