9 weeks and tingling in abdomen

(144 Posts)
katesav87 Tue 23-Oct-12 18:10:16

Hi everyone. Has n e one ever experienced tingling and almost fluttering in the abdomen/ tummy at 9 weeks. I'm 9 weeks and 1 day today with my second. I know it can't be the baby moving but I have no idea wat it is and I've had 3 miscarriages before. I almost want to itch it. It dosent hurt at all. N e help would be appreciated xx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 23-Oct-12 18:27:47

Hi ive hd something similar to this...had it a few yrs ago went to gp and they sent me for hysteroscopy at the hospital...didnt show anything up told me all looked normal in there...ive googled it loads but cant find anything really that matches it...is it like a twitching feeling???? Mine is a bit like that...sorry im of no help but wuld love to know what it is too and how it might affect a pregnancy...will keep an eye on the thread. Frankly :-)

katesav87 Tue 23-Oct-12 18:29:53

Hi frankly I've googled it and can't find n e thing really just that it's either the uterus growing of maybe blood flow. Just hope it's nothing bad. I'm obsessed with this pregnancy! So scared I will loose it. Have had 2 scans and see the heartbeat both times but I'm still on edge. Wish I could just be happy x

MrFranklyShankly Tue 23-Oct-12 18:49:10

Hi kate yeah its prob nothing to worry about but i totally understand i hd a mmc in aug and it was awful so i can well imagine how anxious u wuld be...but the fact u've had 2 scans is excellent and seeing the heartbeat is a great sign all is well, really hope e'thing goes well....im currently late by 3 days and im terrifed to even do a hpt....so nervous about what mite/nite not be....good luck with ur pg and congrats by the way meant to say that in my 1st post:-)

katesav87 Tue 23-Oct-12 18:54:03

Aw thank u. Yes all the miscarriages really get to u! I'm sorry u had to experience a mmc it is just truly awful!! Wow good luck to u. I hope u find out soon and u are. Totally understand being nervous to know tho. Just wait until ur ready. R u usually late? X

MrFranklyShankly Tue 23-Oct-12 19:45:10

Im usually bang on time or even a day before so this really has my head fried...altho this will be me 2nd cycle after the mc so im thinking maybe itl take a while to get it bck to normal...so scared to get my hopes up and will be terrifed if i am...just wish things were uncomplicated...we just want babies why does it hve to be so difficult!! Thanks for the gd luck wishes will let u know how i get on:-\

katesav87 Wed 24-Oct-12 17:09:19

How u getting on frankly? Have u found out yet x

MrFranklyShankly Wed 24-Oct-12 18:44:36

Hi kate well still no sign of Af dont know what to think wil prob go get a test tomorrow if still no sign....just so nervous about it....felt really queasy this morn and all day so maybe culd be something....only thing is the boobs arent really that sore or fuller...just a tiny bit sensative which has me worrying that if i am pregnant maybe the hcg levels arent going very high and that just scares the life outta me....sorry long answer ull be sorry u asked!! How r u today feeling anymore relaxed....mcs really leave u so scared and paranoid, its horrible:-(

katesav87 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:00:31

Hi frankly it sounds like u could be. Get that test :-) my boobs weren't sore to begin with just nipples (sorry to be so graphic) were abit sensitive. Now if I knock them or weirdly even go for a wee they hurt. Still makes me worry tho that baby is gone and I'm going to have a mmc. Today been feeling rubbish sick and tired and can't stop eating to try make the nausea go away. I wish pregnancy was easier and definate so we could all enjoy it. It's so unfair we have to experience mc because they really scar u. Fingers crossed for u!! I admire ur patience. :-) x

MrFranklyShankly Wed 24-Oct-12 22:11:06

Hi kate....well my patience ran out!!! Went to asda,got a test and what can i say BFP!!!! Dh and me both are in total shock and fear....now the worry begins....so really hope we get happy outcomes this time kate....bring on the morning sickness!!:-) x

katesav87 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:22:27

Oh my god congratulations wat an amazing suprise :-) so very happy for u!! Maybe we can moan together hehe. So how far do u think u are. I just new I was this time. It's werid how u just have this feeling isn't it. Hopefully ur morning sickness is not to bad! Mines more nausea all day xxx

MrFranklyShankly Wed 24-Oct-12 22:28:54

Aw thanks kate yeah be good to hve someone to handhold to get us thru! Well i think im just about 4 weeks eeeek soooo early im just petrafied to even think about it...sorry to hear uve been feeling unwell hopefully thats a gd sign...i hd no sickness at all with my mc pregnancy so a bit of nausea would be very welcome....:-)

katesav87 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:38:28

Aww it will go quick I found out so early and remember thinking god I'm never gonna get to 12 weeks with out going insane but I'm 9weeks now and hoping and praying all ok. But who knows I just have to see wat happens. I won't let myself get excited or think about the future untill 12 week scan. Yes I agree I hate nausea but actually I like it because I never got it with my 2 mc. I did with my mmc tho and with my DD I had hyperemesis so now that worrys me as I'm not in hospital on a drip because I can't stop throwing up lol. I just expected it to be the same so I think cos I am not that's y I'm scared I'm going to lose this one. Sorry for the long message. I've talked the ears off my dh my friends and my family and they r sick of me being negative. Do u have n e children? X

MrFranklyShankly Thu 25-Oct-12 10:30:24

Morning Kate, hows things today?? Had the worst night sleep...wakened at half 3 feeling soooo sick, like I was on a boat! that mixed with dread, excitement and just utter fear, keep thinking one minute yeah maybe being positive is the way to go, and then feeling guilty for feeling positive as something has to go wrong...agggghhhh!

I know exactly what you mean, if I dont have nausea then I'm worried, and if I do I hope it doesnt get any worse and make me ill.....worry worry worry! so I know exactly what you mean, so rant away here I'm only too happy to moan and rant along with you, its good to have some outlet for the worry, my poor Dh is terrified to say the least so I'm trying to keep a lid on it in front of him and act normal! So hard to do!

Yeah I have 2 DDs....my first DD I didnt realise I was pg with her until I was about 7/8 weeks, such a good pregnancy, flew through it in total ignorant bliss and enjoyed every month of it....DD2 took us a good while to conceive and then the preganancy was hard enough, lots of bleeding and bedrest as I was terrified of loosing her...so thats why I'm worried sick now, got pg this time quickly so thinking that must be a bad sign (always finding the negative!) keep reading stories on the threads about other women who have gotten pregnant quite quickly after a mc and then gone on to have another mc, so would love to hear a happy outcome from something like that.....have a gp appointment tomorrow morning so will talk over everything with him see what he says, am tempted to ask about baby aspirin?? Dont know what he'll say! Hope your feeling good today (as in you've lots of lovely pg symptoms!!)

Frankly x

katesav87 Thu 25-Oct-12 10:56:25

Morning frankly, been sick twice this morning at work. Struggling with work and my emotions. Feel really sad sometimes and just seem to cry. Wat r we like hey! These weeks before the 6th are going so slow now!! I just want to go home and curl up in bed. Glad to hear u feel sick haha. All good signs. I know wat u mean I feel like I can't be postive just yet I hate talking about it as I'm so scared ill jinx it and at the scan it would of gone. Y is it all so hard. Just cos uve had a mc quite recentely dosent mean u will have one again so try as much as u can to just take ur vitamins eat well and think postive. Hard for me to say that hehe. Hope the Docter reassures u tomorrow xxx

MrFranklyShankly Fri 26-Oct-12 10:26:13

Hey Kate, how are you today??? Hope the sickness is lasting (meant in a good way of course!) I know what you mean about not being able to be positive, very hard but if you look at it statistically your risks of mc are falling everyday, especially now you've had a scan with hb seen, so your stats for a healthy pregnancy are much higher than a mc (I have been googling, can you tell!!!) and I think that sudden outburst of crying is a good sign too, hormones taking a good auld surge, just what ya want.....although I know its not nice that feeling of sadness, Im having that at the mo too, its like this has in a way brought up all the feelings I had with the mc......but all is looking good for you......

Well I had my Gp appointment - and to be honest, I'm not very confident, took ages for the positive to show up on the test....so he said its really early days.....also last night all symptoms I had y'terday, just all left, no sore boobs, no nausea, no tears, feel totally normal, the boobs are really worrying me, they've even seemed to have deflated back to normal, where as they had been a bit fuller and had that 'look' about them....but totally normal......although Gp told me its too early to be taking note of things like that yet, but they're going to book me into the EPU for a scan in 2 weeks time.....to be honest, I really think it is over before its begun this time.....and if thats the case, thats me done, not going through this stress of worrying constantly again, its just not fair on all of us.......anyway hope your doing well......

Frankly

katesav87 Fri 26-Oct-12 18:47:04

Hi frankly. I'm sure it's just early days for u,, my symptons were on and off for ages until now and even now some days I'm sick and some days I'm just nauseas. I know it's hard but just stay postive and don't read to much into it. I can't really give that advice I know lol. It's good that he's scanning u hopefully ur 2 weeks will come round quickly. I know wat u mean tho about trying again its to stressfull I just don't think I can do it again I'm only young and don't want my DD to be an only child biut I'm seriously not strong enough to do it. I have all my fingers crossed for u xxx

katesav87 Sat 27-Oct-12 19:55:50

Hi frankly how u feeling today xxx

MrFranklyShankly Sat 27-Oct-12 21:45:13

Hi kate how are you and little bean keeping? Well im fine today, which isnt something i want! I know it is prob early days but the lack of sore boobs, sickness(altho i cant look at anything sweet!) and general pg symptoms has got me so paranoid....just expecting the worst...anyway ill just hve to chill and wait and see how it pans out...hows things with u?

MrFranklyShankly Sat 27-Oct-12 21:50:04

Forgot to ask u if u had anymore twitchy/tingly feelings since?? Ive been having a few dont knoe if its somethng else i shuld add to the worry list!

katesav87 Sun 28-Oct-12 09:57:23

Hi frankly I remember in the early days I felt nothing my boobs were slighty sore but other than that I was so worried as with my DD I was sick right from wen I found out!! It's only been in the last few weeks I've really felt pregnant. Can't even put a top on with boobs hurting and nausea is all day with small bouts of sickness every now and then. I bet u r having a few good days then all of a sudden it will hit u but remember not everyone gets symptons!!! U have no bleeding or pain so hang in there! Yea I've had a little but more not as much as I had. It's such a werid feeling its almost like the feeling u get wen u first feel them move but I know it can't be that! Very strange. Got my scan in a week and 2 days!!!! So so scared xxx

MrFranklyShankly Sun 28-Oct-12 17:10:41

Hi kate thats great that u hve ur scan soon enuf...altho totally understand how scared u will be its totally terrifing and a bit exciting too..will keep fingers and toes crossed for u;-) well ive hd no symptoms at all...no bleeding but lots of cramping since lastnite:-( and some twitching too feels a bit strange, like u say like baby moving...so im trying not to get too anxious but its so hard not to think the worse...

katesav87 Sun 28-Oct-12 17:39:46

Aw of course it is hard to not think the worst!! I just think its so early for u I had such bad pain in the very beginning I ended up in hospital in a and e! Think it was just the stretching!! I've just had the werid tingling it seems to be wen I relax then I can feel it it's so werid!!! X

MrFranklyShankly Sun 28-Oct-12 19:56:03

That's good to know Kate that's put me a bit more at ease i hd read that but of course still thinking the worst !yeah I've noticed the twitching is usually when im resting just really hope its something and nothing maybe we're just so tuned into whats going on we're picking up on every little bump,its probably normal (i hope so anyway :-)) just had some sickness hd takeaway there with hubby and felt so ill im the middle of eating...hoping thats a gd sign !and not that we had a dodgy takeaway!!!!

katesav87 Sun 28-Oct-12 20:31:09

No that sounds like a good sign if it was dodgy it would of taken a while :-) all sounds good to me. My sickness has been bad today actually this is the worst I've felt today in my whole 10 weeks so seriously don't worry about no feelings it'll soon hit u. I couldn't even get out of bed today :-( and sorry for the detail but really struggling with my bowels so constipated its horrible!
N e way on a lighter note I hope u managed to finish ur takeaway! Xxx
