9w1d and cramping pain

I've started getting period like cramping pain in my lower abdomen. However, it only happens when I stand up. If I sit or lie down it goes completely.

Could this be something as simple as a pulled muscle? Or could it be the early signs of a miscarriage? Does the cramping you get with miscarriage change depending on the position you're in?

Is cramping normal at 9 weeks? Could it be stretching pain?

It's probably just stretching pain. Mine goes when I sit/lie down. But as soon as I get up, it rears it's ugly head. Also find it's worse when I sneeze, cough or blow my nose. I just have a warm bath n get OH to rub my belly/back for a bit and it eases. If it's really bad I take a couple of paracetamol and put a hot water bottle on.

Congrats and I hope this helps.

That does help to hear, thank you monkeybear.

Gives me some hope that something is still growing inside of there!!

Belly I had this and still have mild feelings every now and then. I'm only a bit ahead of you at 10w2d.

I've had 2 mcs and a cp and all of them started with bleeding before cramping came.

Ok that's good to hear buggerlugs. I'm sorry to hear about the miscarriages though. (What's a CP?)

I'm so paranoid about having a missed miscarriage.

Come on 12 week scan!!!!

A CP is a chemical pregnancy or a very early miscarriage. Basically the embryo never really implants.

Could you have a private scan to put your mind at ease? I've had a scan at 6 weeks and at 8 and my 12 week scan is another 2 weeks away still.

I had an early scan at 6 weeks, saw a heart beat. But 3 weeks has passed since then and the doubt has started creeping in. I only need to wait 3 weeks and I'll have the 12 week scan... Just trying not to over analyse every symptom till then!
