im 5 weeks tomorrow and just want to query my biggest symptom. Apart from needing the bathroom a lot more my stomach from the bottom of my ribs down feels super tight as if I've done too many sit ups (defo not as I don't do them) and have butterflies going on. It's worse in the evening but its present most the day. I'm tired but that's all my signs so far. Is this stomach thing normal? I'm probably a size 8/10 usually with a bit of a pot belly.

Hi Belle, congrats on your pregnancy.
Yes everything sounds like normal early pregnancy symptoms. Your abdomen will start to feel more solid & tight as your uterus starts to expand & grow to safely house your growing bump. The butterflies sensation at this stage will likely be trapped wind as your body adapts to the changes going on.
