Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the tingling sensation that you are having in the first trimester. This is common during pregnancy because of the hormones and uterine growth due to the fetal growth which pulls the ligaments of the uterus. If there is any bleeding or associated abdominal cramps, then please consultan ER.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For an exact diagnosis, you are advised to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
