    Default Weird pregnancy symptom?

    I'm only coming up to 6 weeks with my first but for the past 3 days I've had tight muscles in my belly. It's down the sides and up high, around my diaphragm, almost under my ribs. Nothing down low where I'd expect it. Could this be stretching as a pregnancy symptom or is it something else?? I can't really find this as a symptom from others so wondering if anyone's had it. Quite uncomfortable if I slouch at all! I don't have any other symptoms yet apart from semi-sore breasts but this tightness is uncomfortable. I thought it would be too early for stretching.

    I had stretching about the same time so I think its normal
    I asked my FS about it and she said its because my ovaries were swollen due to IVF. She even zoomed in on the ultrasound to show me..
    Mine tended to be lower rather then underneath my ribs but she said it might continue for a few more weeks yet

    Default Weird pregnancy symptom?

    I'm 7 weeks and for the last few days I've had sore muscles, like I've been doing lots of sit ups

    Hi Vivre - thanks. Yeah I have some near the ovaries but it feels more muscular. Also if I get up quickly I feel sharp muscle pain in the sides so I really think they're getting tight for some reason. It seems so high though. Maybe I should just enjoy having tight abs for once in my life

    Does it move around at all? It could be gas. I get nasty trapped gas under my rib cage

    I think so, but if it's painful see your doctor. There's never any harm in pestering your Dr. When you're worried
