Pulling sensation in uterus?

I'm currently 6dpo. Had cramping, positive OPK's etc this time last week that have disappeared now. I've been having soreness in my boobs but I know this is common after ovulating and doesn't necessarily mean anything. My nipples are also quite sensitive especially in the cold (this was my earliest pregnancy symptom with both of my pregnancies) but again, I know this isn't uncommon so I'm taking it with a pinch of salt. However, I was just wondering if anyone had had a weird pulling sensation after ovulation? I was in bed last night and in my lower abdomen, what I would guess was my uterus (I don't think it was far enough over to be in my ovary) started feeling like something was pulling or tugging. It wasn't painful, it was a little uncomfortable to the point where I started rubbing the area to try and ease it off. It didn't last too long, maybe half an hour or so. I just wondered what it might be? I've never had it before and as I ovulated last week and I know what ovulation pain feels like for me, I was a bit baffled. I know it probably doesn't mean anything conception wise but does anyone else get this after OV?

Yes I got it with all 4 pregnancies at the same stage. Felt like someone jabbing me with a pencil mixed with a pulling sensation.

I've had this the last few cycles and each time convinced myself it was implantation happening. Unfortunately for me it wasn't and seems to be a regular luteal phase symptom going by my tracker, I just noticed it more as we're ttc.

I had this in early pregnancy.

It was really odd, I'm used to cramps but not something I've felt before with my other pregnancies. I hadn't ever heard of it being a symptom of either luteal phase or early preg, I was worrying it might be something sinister lol

I was thinking that tbh MrsCharlieD, trying not to think too much of it!
