Does your stomach feel real tight in the beginning of pregnancy?

It has been a long time since I have had kids and it is hard to remember all of the symptoms I had.
I have an appointment with the doctor next Friday to have a pregnancy test done. The only thing is I dont have the nausea, gagging on the toothpaste, sore boobs symptoms that I used to get with my last two. The only thing I am feeling is a tight stomach, taking power naps in the daytime which I never do and I am peeing a lot. My last period was this month and it was only spotting. I am also experiencing insomnia.

not quite sure what you mean by a tight stomach - I don't recall all these symptoms when I was pregnant (except for the frequent urination) but guess it's possible.

Re: Does your stomach feel real tight in the beginning of pregnancy?

I had almost no symptoms when I first found out I was pregnant and even now, at 21 weeks, I have very little in the way of symptoms. All I had early on was a missed period with pink/brown spotting around the time I expected my period and period-like cramps. I never did get morning sickness. I only got sore breasts around 9 weeks and then it only lasted a week. Even now, despite feeling movement & getting a bit of a belly, I don't "feel" especially pregnant! I did have fatigue in the first trimester, that came on pretty bad at 7-15 weeks.

I'm not sure what you mean by a tight stomach exactly though. Have you tried taking a home pregnancy test? If your last period was only spotting, a home test should be accurate by now.

Re: Does your stomach feel real tight in the beginning of pregnancy?

That tight feeling I am talking about is kind of similar to a brach hicks contraction but very mild. I dont recall feeling this when I first got pregnant with my two daughters but I felt this while I was in the middle of my pregnancies. I dont understand why I would feel it now being I dont even know if I am pregnant or not. The test said no but the dr said I took the test too early.

Re: Does your stomach feel real tight in the beginning of pregnancy?

There shoudl be no reason for me to be pregnant because I was on the pill. However on my second month of the pill I took antibiotics during the first week. My husband and I used protection until I finished those pills and when I started up on the new ones for the month we stopped using protection.
