Pinching Feeling
0

9 posts in this topic

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.

    • Oh, yes!  It just takes time.  I know, hard to hear, but it took a lot of time for your symptoms to develop.  Most members feel noticeably better in a few weeks.  Just rest as much as possible.  Spend time learning the Gluten free diet.  There is a steep learning curve to the diet.  Want to shorten it?  Eat as much Whole Foods as possible.  Think stews and soups.  Things that are easy to digest. Eliminate dairy until you start to feel better and then re-introduce it.  Many celiacs become lactose intolerant because the enzymes that help digest lactose are released from villi tips.  Not villi, no enzymes (or at least a reduction based on patchy damage).  Do not eat out for a while!   Hang in there!  
    • Celiac disease is associated with numerous chronic conditions, such as anemia and malabsorption of some critical vitamins. Changes in the gastrointestinal tract, rates of gastric emptying, and gastric pH are responsible for impaired vitamin and mineral absorption. Intestinal CYP3A4 levels may also be disrupted, which may have implications in first-pass metabolism for some drugs that are substrates for this drug metabolizing enzyme. View the full article
    • Thank you for posting this I've never been to South America, it's the only continent, bar the poles, I've yet to visit. It's really nice to read that my gluten sensitivity hasn't ruled it out. Maybe I'll get to the land of Luis Suarez yet!
    • I know this post is a year ago... however it is still on the first page of the travel section!  I am from Uruguay, (South America) and I can answer this question for people that may look at it in the future. As a South American -  I can say that the cuisine varies greatly.  In cities, you shouldn't have any more than the normal amount of difficulty finding food.  For example, in Montevideo, the city I am from, you'll have no problem finding dedicated entire Celiac stores.  Meat is a large part of restaurant menus, so parilladas (similar in theory to steakhouses, would be very easy to navigate).  Uruguayans do eat a lot of pastries, and just like in the states... Most mainstream bakeries are not gluten free, but like I mentioned there are places that specialize.  In Uruguay, there is knowledge of Celiac and a large health awareness.  Some of the foods can be costly, cost of living in general is not low. In large swaths of South America, the foods you mentioned - Potatoes, rice, meat, etc are abundant, as are fresh fruits and veggies.  Avoiding corn does make it tricky.  Peru can be a great place for non-gluten eaters. Peru uses very little gluten (they are the original quinoa eaters) but there is a lot of corn in the diet (and since you are corn sensitive, that would be a food you would need to navigate). Latin America spread over two continents! In this area you will find a great variety in cultures, cuisines, and knowledge of celiac.  There is no reason why If you want to experience Latin America, that you have to rule out an entire region of the world because of Celiac.  Navigating it will be different, but it is doable!
