Tightening in abdomen early pregnancy?

Has anyone else experienced tightening in early pregnancy, I am only 8 weeks pregnant and am having like muscle tensing every now and then, almost like painless contractions. Is this normal?

    Yes, that is absolutely normal. Those aren't contractions, they are actually called 'round ligament pains'.  These little pings of pain happen as your uterus starts growing and pressing upon your bladder and pelvis.  The bigger you get the stronger the muscles have to be.  If it is still concerning, ask your doctor about this at your next office visit.

    I was in agony around that time.  I don't know what up with you, but in my case I was told it was because my uterus straightening itself out.  It used to be forward tipped which was always an issue when getting smears done.
