I think mild cramping is quite normal.. that sort of bloating pain and twinges all normal too. Bloating and trapped wind, horrible as it is, is a positive sign though. I felt like my lower abdomen had been inflated.
It's horrible though isn't it.. have you got an early reassurance scan booked? It's a long way til the 12 week one and it can help
I had this, I remember sitting in meetings being horribly convinced my period had just started, then the relief when I got to the loos later on and found nothing untoward. If you can have an early scan, I think it could really help you manage this. It's so difficult to deal with the worrying.
I had that, felt like period pain with some muscle pulls running from my hip accross. I think its everything stretching. But if youre still worried call your midwife, they will understand especially given your history.
I think it's completely normal for some people. I had everything from dull aches, sharp twinges and sudden cramps. For the entire 40 weeks. Book a viability scan at 7 weeks when they should be able to detect a heartbeat.
Hi, I had mc first time at around 4 weeks and during this pregnancy around 4 weeks I was just like you... I had cramps, period pain feeling and twinges! I constantly was thinking that was it. I asked other people who had babies (before I joined mumsnet) and they all said they never had cramps etc do I thought it was totally not normal. I had an early scan and my Hcg levels checks by blood test every 48 hours, once at hospital and once privately. This made me feel so much better!! So it can be normal as I only have four weeks to go, however it's always best to get checked out. The hcg blood level tests (google it) are the best indication if the pregnancy is developing normal as the level is meant to double every 48 hours. This how I found out my first pregnancy was going to e d in a mc.... But at least I knew and got some comfort that I knew it was going to happen as the pregnancy wasn't going to ahead instead of finding out another way. Then on the flip side having the tests done this time made me feel so much better and although there was still a risk as there is with all pregnancies, it helped to start to build my confidence and relieved a lot of initial stress. I would honestly recommend getting the hcg blood tests done! Good luck and I'm thinking of you x
I had terrible cramps and aches in early pregnancy, I think it is fairly common but agree that it's very nerve wracking. I hope it eases off for you soon although you will inevitably find something else to worry about, that 12 week scan is a long time coming!
