Uterus fluttering!!! HELP!! user banned
May 19th '09

My lower abdomen or uterus keeps fluttering. :shock: I know its not the baby moving, because im not able to feel that now since im only close to 8 weeks. Its not painful at all... it feels like a strong rapid pulse, or like the sensation when your eye twitches. It happened a couple times yesterday, and now it happened like 3 times within the past 45 minutes. What could it be?

It could be anything, really.



I doubt it's the baby, but who really knows. Pregnancy involves so many changes in the body. :)




ETA:
At 8 weeks, your uterus is still below your pelvic bone.... it isn't until around 12-13 weeks that it rises above that. IDK exactly where you're talking about, but it sounds higher than your uterus?



Gas, maybe?
Or you could be further along than you thought.

Maybe it is just a muscle twitch, your uterus is changing a lot.

i read that people have them around 15+ weeks, but not as early as i am. Im not sure exactly where it is because it only happens when i sit down. but i dont think its below my pelvic bone

I had this about the same time as you and still occasionally do at almost 16 weeks. My doc says everything is AOK.
