I had cramps quite early on in my pregnancy, too. It's very common. Don't let yourself get all stressed out, give it a few hours and you'll have dozens of posters tell you they had pains, too. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Yes - me too, throughout the first trimester. Like you, I hated it as it felt like my period was coming. But it's just everything stretching. In a couple of weeks morning sickness will kick in and you'll have no trouble at all believing you're pregnant!
I had pains almost every single day for weeks and weeks - it's completely normal - it's the ligaments and the womb tissues all stretching and getting larger. Your womb grows from about the size of a pear before pregnancy, to about the size of a grapefruit by about 7 weeks.
I was just told this morning that the blood test was positive, and was convinced it would't be, as I've had some light heaviness, almost cramping the past 4 days or so...the ladies have been in excrutiating pain as well for a week now...I'm just worried the cramping is not good...I had it with my first pg 14 yrs ago, and was told it was normal, just a bit jumpy!!
I am 5wks 2day&been havin realy bad back ache&period pains 4 a few days. Realy startin 2 wry now! I've just had pregnancy confirmed at drs,but wen idid home test it was quite faint, so looked on net 4 y this cud b. Sum say jus 2 early& not enuf hcg. Others say cud b linked 2 early miscarrage. So that combine wiv pains has set my mind racing! I hav 2 children already&NEVER felt lik this! Pls help! So hard not 2 wry! X
I can really sympathise, although i have 4 children (youngest is 10) u wud think that i'd be an expert, but since being wiv my new partner we have been trying for a baby, we have had 3 losses....Ectopic removed at 8 weeks in February 2008, Early miscarriage April 2008, miscarriage at 10 weeks in Sept 2008...didnt come away itself had to have D+C, we left it a few months before we decided to try again + a test last week revealed I am pregnant,was over the moon but also scared as i had had nearly 2 weeks of PMT + period type pains so i was convinced my period was coming so was extremely surprised when 3 diff tests revealed clear positive results. I feel tired, sometimes sick + have very tender breasts, but the worrying thing is the continual stomach cramps i have been getting, feel like bad period pains, i'm terrified I am going to lose this one too :-(....i had a spec of browny blood a 10 days ago which i s'pose cud have been implantation, + this morn another spec of watery brown fluid, so terrified i'm losing it again, i have been wearing tampons all day but nothing on it, not even a tiny dot, dont know what to think, I know at this stage too early for scan etc. I have just turned 41 so i know i am trying to have a baby on borrowed time (my partner is only 27 + has no children of his own)...cant understand why i can fall pregnant so easily but just cant seem to carry it for long??? Doctors have no answers for me, i'm worried sick :-( I had not expected to fall pregnant on the 1st month that we tried, as i had my left tube removed with the ectopic, so 41 + 1 tube its a miracle i get pregnant at all. I am trying to be positive, we are getting married in 3 wks 6 days and are hoping and praying that it is a new start for us as a family. I'm understandably paranoid, but all i can think about is with my four children i had no pain, and with the 3 losses i did :-(...praying this is not loss number 4
