Week 6!!!

Got a BFP on Friday. From what I worked out I'm about 6 weeks, give or take a couple of days. I'm just a little concerned that I'm having a lot of cramping and back ache. It's no worse than period pain but just a little worried. Am I being irrational!!

congrats grin I had loads of period type pains in early pregnancy and still occasionally get them now at 20 weeks. It's likely to be where everything is stretching

Try not to worry. There's a lot going on down there at the moment. I am currently pg but had a previous miscarriage. I definitely had lots of aches and pains that early during both so i think it sounds normal. Don't worry unless u start bleeding a period. Check out the miscarriage thread if u do, i found it incredibly helpful. Fingers crossed it's just the usual stretching and hormones.

Thanks guys. Things seem to have settled down during the day, lots of cuddles and back rubs with the hubby.

Totally normal with my first pregnancy I had them too.
Now I pregnant with #2 5-6 weeks and don't have the yet..

It is because your body needs to stretch and make room for the baby..
