Pinching Feeling

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is not something I've read about on any of the early pregnancy symptom lists, but starting yesterday evening, I was feeling this 'pinching' feeling very low on my left side. I've heard of cramping at implantation, but this really doesn't feel like cramping, but just a funny pinching inside. I ovulated a week ago yesterday, so this would be right in line with time of implantation. Just curious if this feeling is familiar to anyone??? (fingers crossed)

Hi Jen,

I've never been pregnant, so sorry I don't have a very knowledgeable response for you.

I have, however, read about twinging, tingling, pulling, gurgling, etc. all being normal feelings during a woman's cycle. I really like the forums and charts at http://tcoyf.com, there are lots of very supportive people on there. I also check out http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com, it has more detailed symptoms.

We've been TTC for 3 months now. I'm on 9DPO & CD23. Having some spotting and cramping that could either be implantation, or pms, but hoping it's the former.

Good luck! :)

I'm no help, but wishing the best for you both.

Tarnalberry ( a member here ) is very knowledgeable about these things.

We've been not not trying since I came off of Depo in May. It wasn't until almost exactly one month after going gluten free that my period re-started from being on the Depo and even then my OBGYN really cautioned me that I may well not ovulate on my own for a year or more, but that (given my husband's and my ages) she didn't want us trying for more then six months without success. She had me purchase some OTC ovulation tests and start testing about day 6 or 7 of my cycle, but just cautioned me to not get my hopes up. Well, low and behold, day 13 I got a :) meaning that I ovulated on day 14 just like I should have. And yesterday, 7DPO, I started getting the pinching feeling. Fingers crossed...I'm cautiously optimistic!

Good luck to you, too! It would be amazing if we were both going through this at the same time (almost to the day) and have that back and forth together!

Thanks Jen, good luck to us both! I'm having heavier spotting today and worried that my period is on its way, so I'm not sure this is the month for me... but I still have some hope, fingers crossed!

Hoping that it is implantation bleeding! That is very common, and is one of the main reasons people think they are not pg when they actually are. I have about five days now before my period would be due. <<fingers crossed>>

I hope so too, thanks! I've been exhausted, nauseous, moody, etc. today... not sure if it's possible pregnancy or PMS. The waiting game sucks!

It most definately does! And it's exacerbated by the fact that so many of the symptoms overlap... I've been the same way, exhausted, backache, moody (just ask hubby! lol), but no more than my 'usual' nausia. And add my 'cramps' or whatever they'd be called, I know I still have to be a little pessimistic so as not to get my hopes up too high, but I'm very hopeful! How long before you can take a HPT? I took one the other day, knowing that it would be too early, but just felt like I HAD to do it. I should be safe to test by Thurs or Fri, but I'll probably get another multi-pack and test every day starting on Wednesday.

Hi Jen

I am not a Celiac but have been pregnant 3 times. During the very early stages of my first I did feel a 'pinching' feeling on one side which went after a few weeks. I have not come across anyone else that had these sensation before.

    • Did you know that there are so many issues and questions surrounding celiac disease that even doctors who specialize in it find that the scientific data changes every six months, and this includes research data, new diagnostic and testing recommendations, and its connections to other diseases and conditions. In fact, many of us who think we have "arrived" and know it all might actually need a refresher course on the disease. View the full article
    • Apologies for my over-reaction.  As the shampoo exposure was only for a couple week or so, I doubt any lab tests would have indicated exposure. Unfortunately, since I didn't have the antibodies, I can only rely on my symptoms to tell me if I've been exposed. I'm fortunate enough that eliminating gluten (and dairy) from my diet completely fixed my problems. I have had no lingering systems, and now that I have been gluten free for a while, when I do get gluten I have a very clear reaction (and a distinct reaction to dairy) that follows a fairly predictable timeline. This has accidentally been tested a couple of times. For example, early on before I was better at reading labels I grabbed some cookies at the grocery store that I thought were gluten free (the company produces both a normal and gluten-free version, and this was before I learned to avoid shared facilities). I had grabbed the wrong bag but I didn't figure it out until about a week of feeling crappy had passed and I went searching for a culprit. Things like this have happened a couple of times, where I accidentally did a blinded experiment on myself. The symptoms are consistent, and resolve once I remove the offending item. So when I recognized my symptoms as the result of gluten, I went looking for a culprit and I found the shampoo and conditioner. I removed them and then I got better.  My problems are largely systemic. I wouldn't be surprised if I don't actually have celiac but some other immune mediated reaction that hasn't been defined, but calling it celiac is the best way to get people to take my needs seriously (which I'm sure you understand). Unfortunately, my problems don't seem to fit into any particular diagnostic bucket, so I've learned not to rely on the official medical terms and just go with what works. I'm lucky to have had doctors who think the same way, else they might have told me that I didn't need to go gluten free once I failed to show clear-cut celiac. Maybe I'm pre-celiac, maybe it's the much maligned NCGS, or it's all related to leaky gut (I am eagerly awaiting the FDA approval of larazotide so that I can get a doctor to give me some, I think it might do me a lot of good). All I know is that when I went gluten and dairy free it literally changed my life.  In general it seems that gluten exposure causes a generalized inflammatory response. I get some inflammation in my gut that manifests as reflux, acid indigestion (what I call "fake hunger"), and a little bit of urgency and unpredictability with regards to bathroom needs, but if that were the only problem, I think I could live with it. I also get headaches, brain fog, my depression/anxiety gets triggered to a scary degree, arthritis, muscle aches, and then, the clincher, muscles spasms in my upper back and neck that have been known to lay me out for a couple of days while I wait for the muscle relaxants to help me heal. The muscle spasms, arthritis and brain fog are the most recognizable and are usually what cue me in that I got glutened, especially the spasms.  Again, sorry for being oversensitive. I should have known better, since this is such a supportive community.  
    • I appreciate your point. However, constancy of my celiac symptoms indicates that I have had the disease for at least three years - while I have never experienced any food allergies in that time. Although I will keep an eye on any emerging allergies, I believe my current fatigue is due to nutritional deficiency, because the only exogenous change in my life style has been the transition to gluten free diet.   Yes, I certainly need to keep a food diary. Thanks again for the advice.
    • In many cases no.....I consume heavy magnesium foods like pumpkin seeds, cocoa nibs etc....and still need 2-3x the dose of magnesium recommendations. Going on more of what poster boy said. You dose magnesium to tolerance with citrate like Natural Vitality Calm you start off small partial doses and slow ramp up....it can hit you hard causing gas and D if you go to quick into it. You dose citrate to tolerance meaning you slowly up your dose til you get loose stools...then back down a bit. You should have vivid dreams with a good dosing....also if it becomes to harsh or you can not handle citrate there is Doctors Best Glycinate...it does not have the gut effects at all...but the dreams and how much it makes you relax is more more felt.   ...with this disease you can have a food intolerance or allergy crop up out of the blue....like no where. You have a autoimmune disease....celiac it effects your immune system and can make it really wonky. Like it seems to always be on guard like a sleep deprived sentry on stim packs...jumps at everything and shoots it. If you get sick, eat something odd or harsh you system might red flag it as a issue for awhile and go bonkers....keep a food diary and try a food rotation in the mean time...OH as a example to this, I was fine with chia seeds last week...I got a cold over the weekend....same bag, same brand same way....withing 30mins I now puke if I eat them...new intolerance.....I also am finding jalapenos/paprika making it sleepy tired....so I am removing them both for a few months from my diet and changing to other sources for fats/fiber and vitamin A/C til I get over that issue.....these things just happen. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Hi Isabel, Your body needs nutrients to grow.  Nutrients not absorbed well when we have celiac disease damage in our guts.   But, if you do a good job of avoiding gluten, the gut damage should heal and you will be able to absorb nutrients again. The thing to remember is celiac disease is an immune system reaction.  Immune reactions are very sensitive and just a tiny amount of gluten can get them going.   And they can last for months.  So it;s very important to avoid all gluten all the time, to keep the immune reaction down.  Keeping the immune reaction down keeps the damage down, and the healing can keep up. You may start to grow more if you can absorb nutrients better.  Some extra vitamin pills might be a good idea.  Your doctor should know.
