Fluttering in lower abdomen before period
Have you been feeling a fluttering in your lower abdomen and are wondering if you might be pregnant?
Around 1 in 50 women who contact Oh My Mama Body say that they have experienced a fluttering in their uterus or lower abdomen before their period is due.
Is the fluttering feeling a sign of pregnancy?
Can it be an early sign of pregnancy?
Women who notice the fluttering feeling also report feeling adrenaline rushes.
The fluttery feeling itself can be compared to butterflies in your stomach (except lower down). A very light, almost bubbly sensation.
Women who go on to find out that they are pregnant say that the fluttering feeling happened around a week before their period was due. That’s days before any pregnancy test can tell you if you are pregnant!
Is getting pregnant not as easy as you thought it would be?
I guide you to connect with your womb using gentle healing techniques which help you to discover blocks inside which could be stopping your natural feminine flow. It really is trying out as so many women tell me how much lighter they feel afterwards.

Early signs of pregnancy before a missed period
It is hard to say if you are definitely pregnant based on the feeling in your lower abdomen alone. Only a positive pregnancy test can give you the most accurate answer.
However, there are many other very early pregnancy symptoms. If you are experiencing several early pregnancy symptoms, then it is more likely that you are pregnant.
I always knew I was pregnant, long before I tested positive. The changes in my body were very clear; I even felt completely different in myself.
So many pregnancy sites talk about early pregnancy symptoms, but these are the symptoms you experience AFTER a missed period.

Answer six questions to find out if you could be pregnant.
Did you know that I had seven pregnancies and always knew that I was pregnant over a week before any test showed positive? I share my experiences to help you understand and tune into your body.
When should I take a pregnancy test?
It feels like such a long time to wait before your period is due. Taking a test too early won’t help you because the pregnancy hormones (hCG) levels in your urine won’t yet be strong enough for a test to show positive.
If you know when you ovulated, then you can count the days since ovulation and listen out for any changes happening in your body.
If you ovulate early in your cycle, then it is possible for a pregnancy test to show positive a few days before your missed period. Or you can use an early predictor test. Oh My Mama Body recommends First Response or Clear Blue which you can use as early as 6 days before a missed period. Follow the links and get them ordered now so that you have them ready when you need them. First Response link, Clear Blue link.
If you ovulated later in your cycle, you may not get a positive pregnancy test until a week or more after your missed period.
