Hi. Not sure what is happening! My period is three days late and on Sat did test. Extremely faint line (thread - TTC faint line Sat). Sunday was bit clearer and yesterday still faint but clear. My boobs have been hurting and am peeing a fair amount. But I am having period-like cramps which I did have with my first child. However, this time it is for 2 days?? I keep on going to the loo every two minutes to check for the dreaded AF. Going mad! Got the slightest, slightest bit of brown discharge and white mucus. Please help! I am feeling very anxious. Thanks.

Congratulations on your BFP!

I had period-like cramps everyday for a few of weeks right at the beginning (from about 4wks) and I'm 35+5 now! I've heard of a lot of people who go through this so it seems to be a normal thing.

Good luck!

Hunnie, as I said on your other thread, it really is normal to get even quite severe cramps in early pregnancy. I had period pains for at least 3-4 weeks in each of my pregnancies.

Congratulations! I had them all the time for several weeks and intermittently for at least 8-9 weeks. Brown dishcarge is old bllod so nothing to worry about (easier said than done!)

Thanks Hunnie! I know, not long to go but it still seems far away!

I wasn't so bothered with the need to pee all the time, but one of my friends was never out of the loo when she was first pg! I was really lucky though and managed to avoid a lot of the early niggles, like constant peeing and monring sickness. I forgot to say but I used a hot water bottle to help with the cramps, it wasn't boiling hot though, just warm and that seemed to help.

Thanks all. I know lou03 and thanks, but now worried about the "discharge". Didn't want to take that thread up with my cramp talk! :. Just been and checked again! So hard not to keep running to the loo. What a worry this all is!! Some people just blink and they're pregnant, no worries or anything. Oh well, we will see. Keeping positive!

lou03, did you keep on running to the loo all the time too?

Yep - felt like I was bleeding through quite a lot of my early pregnancy, then towards the end I felt like my waters had broken, lol - I think that my body likes to make lots of discharge in pregnancy.

Yes mine did actually previous pgnancy. Just waiting for hubby to get home to do next test; he warned me not to do it til he got home It has been hard, been wanting to do it all day LOL.

with dd I spent 7 days utterly convinced i was about to come on at any moment. So convinced in fact i didnt bother testing till i was 7 days late, then carried on getting the cramps for some time after that. peeing and boobs are good signs!
