Hi all,

Just looking for some support. I got my BFP two days ago and currently 5 weeks today. I have been an emotional wreck the last couple of days and torturing myself with Google. I really want to relax and enjoy this but so worried that this pregnancy won't continue. I have had light cramps for a few days which the internet mostly says is normal. I am going to the loo every half hour as I am so convinced that there will be blood. Driving myself crazy.

Anyone in the same boat ATM?

I'm 5 weeks 5 days and yes I'm checking all the time!! I think it's "normal" lol. I've just done another test to check...the third one! I've no clue about any of this, but you aren't alone!! 😊

I have been very good and not tested anymore. I was using Ovusense which records your temp. I am continuing to use it to make sure my temp stays up. I am going to book a private early scan next to ensure everything is as it should be. Now terrified about that. My partner is really excited and I am just terrified sad

If I had a bad feeling about everything before the first 12 week scan I would go out and end up getting another test just to be be sure. I knew everything was fine as all the symptoms were there, but I just couldn't stop worrying.

I probably sounds quite crazy but it's best to be safe than sorry. If you really are worried, then probably ring up the midwife or something and let her know. She will know more and will be able to tell you.

Good luck with your pregnancy.

Hi User, I'm in exactly the same boat as you. Got my BFP a few days ago and I've been panicking ever since! I've had period type cramps for the last few days which made me worry but every time they ease off a bit I worry that I don't have them! I've now banned myself from googling symptoms which has helped but the 12 week scan can't come soon enough!

Thanks whereisthecake. Glad to know I am not going mad. I suggest booking an early scan. I have mine next Thursday. I curse the cramps worrying they are bad but then worry when they go haha. I don't have many of the symptoms. My boobs are fine but I am sickly (mostly at night) I am exhausted, but have just returned from an all inclusive holiday so the sickness and tiredness could be don to t

The cramping is totally normal at this stage.

I know how you feel... I got my BFP yesterday but we in A&E with servere stomach pains last week so panicked a little.
Had an appointment with the Doc today and they have reasured me. Blood test is normal but I have been booked in for an early scan.

My husband was so nervous planning this pregnancy and now it his here he is as cool as a cucumber and I am all over the place! I just dont know if I want to shout it from the rooftops or curl under the duvet and cry!

5 weeks but no real symptoms yet... I gues we all just need to relax and enjoy it (If we can turn the crazy little person on the brain off! lol )

I'm 5weeks(ish) found out just over a week ago n feel like it's been forever! I've not had too many symptoms though apart from a seriously upset stomach (which is how I knew!) and some cramping- which kinda worries me though I'm sure it's normal. My midwife appointment seems a long way off though!

Went to the docs on Monday but what a let down that was! He basically just sent me back out to the desk to make a midwife appointment n told me not to take any tablets. He only asked about the date of my last period as an afterthought!

Got another 2 weeks until the midwife appt but not sure how I'm gonna explain that one to my boss- I don't want to tell work until past 12 weeks but every time I have to nip out he's always asking if everything is ok n can he help n basically fishing for info!!

I feel like I've had a bit of a ramble here but it's a quiet Friday aft at work!

Hi all, I'm 5 weeks today too.

Ive been aching a lot all this week with dull cramps, and I'm so tired by 3pm. Today has been Less achy which got me worried but I think I'm probably just used to it now!

It's just a long old wait now. I have my gp appointment on 31 May which feels ages but will come around quick.

Gem0228 Sun 21-May-17 09:24:17

If only we could relax and enjoy it eh. My partner can't understand why I am stressing!!! I have been sick after tea a few nights this week and an upset stomach. Beeing weeing loads too. I have had cramp off and on which worry me but I worry more when the go haha. Got an early scan Thus and I am dreading it don't know how I will cope if they tell me there is no heartbeat. Had myself in such a state on Thus night worrying about things not working. I want this baby so much xxx

Hi all, I'm panicking too. AF due yesterday so tested and it was positive. Bought clearblue but it says I'm only 1-2 weeks which I know is brilliant but that is what it said before my mc last year so I'm stressing. Combine that with lower back ache and I'm convincing myself it's all going to go wrong. Somebody please tell me I'm being an idiot?!

Rosehyd2 Sun 21-May-17 10:06:53

Robindeer if it says 1-2 when af was due then that's correct assuming you have an average month cycle. You count pregnancy weeks from the first day of your last period, the test tells you weeks since conception.
Don't panic, maybe book an appt with a gp soon as you have mc experience.

robindeer Sun 21-May-17 10:34:14

Ah no, I know. It's just that in my head I equate that with mc because the hormone isn't 'strong enough'. I know, I'm mad. This would be our second dc and we've been trying for over a year. It all just feels very high stakes. If all is well in a few days I'll arrange my booking in appt. At the minute it just feels like tempting fate.
