Twinges

Early pregnancy symptom

Twinges is a common word used by women in very early pregnancy, it describes the flutters, tingles, gurgles, bubbles and pokes that are felt in the abdomen, around the uterus or ovary area. These types of sensations are not only common but very normal. Some women experience these feelings as early as implantation when the embryo attaches itself to the uterus (6-12 days after ovulation). There are a lot changes happening in your body, even in very early pregnancy, so cramping and twinges are to be expected.

Related types of abdominal sensations: cramps similar to those experienced just prior to or during menstruation, cramps that differ from their usual PMS or menstrual cramps, mild pressure, quick sharp pains or pulling/pinching.

If you are experiencing any pain that does not seem "normal" or that is very painful, you should consult your doctor, especially if they are accompanied by bleeding.
