Hello ladies.

If all dates are correct as are my two BFP I should be around 4 weeks -

Occasionally getting a dull cramping and a 'wet' feeling down there every now and then, so much so that before I tested I was constantly nipping to the loo and checking AF hadn't arrived. ( I still am actually! I'm still in shock and convinced it can't be real!blush)

Is this normal? New to all this it's my first pregnancy!

TIA smile

Oh yes i had this. I was constantly nipping to the loo to check....and the cramping scared me half to death. Thinking about it now though i had just confused my body (by getting preg) so the cramps were my body's way of readjusting. I am now 13 weeks 😊 try to relax....and congrats!!

Congratulations on ur pregnancy!

Cramping and wetness is totally normal. The cramping is a sign baby is settling in. And you should find an increase in discharge as well, I am 27 weeks pregnant and have needed panty liners every day. With my first pregnancy I spent 4 days dashing to the loo expecting AF to have arrived with the cramping and wet feeling, before I started to Suspect something was up and Dr Google Indiciated I should do a test. My DS is now 5 years old!

I've also had 4 mc's, two very early at 5 weeks and I didn't have cramping with either of those. So I now consider the cramping a very good sign in early pregnancy.

Only worry if it becomes very painful and is accompanied by bleeding.

I had a lot of cramping up to week 8 with my first. Since there was never any blood, it didn't worry me too much. 5 weeks pregnant now and it's started up again. I too am constantly checking my knickers even so!

I'm totally in the same boat. The wet feeling is horrible and my heart stops whenever I go to the loo!

I'm too early to test atm but I keep getting random period type cramps that have been waking me up at night and I keep expecting AF to show up, but no sign yet...
