Yes - I can remember being freaked out by the stretching discomfort you describe. I used a warm wheat bag which helped me. My midwife reassured me that it was just the ligaments stretching as your uterus gets bigger. It was a problem on and off for quite a bit of my pregnancy if I remember correctly and it was worse if I stood for too long. The nausea is very normal - I had it from the day I got my BFP but was lucky that it wasn't severe, just a feeling of nausea intermittently. Good luck - it's all fun and exciting but very scary too! Ask on here if you have any other concerns - there's loads of people who can help.

Yes, sounds perfectly normal. I'm sat here feeling the same thing at 5+ weeks.

Congratulations smile

Its just everything stretching out smile

As long as nothing is painful then its normal! I found lying with a pillow under my knees helped..

As for the nausea, i couldnt handle a lot of foods, only stratchy foods (and rustler burgers?!?) but i found i had to eat every 2 hours otherwise the nausea would come back with avengence!!

I am now 13+6... and it gets so much better smile my symtoms stopped around week 9, and i was in total panic, but the scan showed everything is fine!

I got this - was told it was the ligaments nad muscles stretching. As obviously when you are pregnant you get a bigger belly.

It's very normal!!

Due to previous mc's I've had early scans. In 6 wk scan baby measured 5mm, at 8wks 15mm and on Friday at 12 week scan 55mm.... So they're doing a lot of growing in there at the moment!
