I'm hoping someone can put my mind at rest as GP appointment is not for a few days yet.
Found out last week that I am expecting no.1.
During the 2WW I experienced a dull ache/warm feeling on the right side of my lower abdomen after ov. I was pleased as hoped this meant success so I spent the usual dreaded wait feeling quietly confident! However, now that I have my BFP, I'm worried that this could be a problem rather than something normal as I think I expected it to just disappear once pg had been confirmed! The ache becomes more like AF pains across my entire lower stomach during the afternoons/evenings. There are no cramps or shooting pains but I've terrified myself by reading too many websites with ectopic pregnancy symptoms.
First day of my last period was 12th May so I think the Doctors will say I'm 5 weeks but obviously that's really only 2.5 ish.
first thing is do NOT read on the websites about the aches that you cud be having or otherwise it will mess up your head...keep away from them! and second thing it cud be implantation...how long have u had the ache now?
I always thought that I wouldn't get paranoid but looks like my stay calm strategy hasn't worked!
Biglips - you are SO right. As soon as I read the sites, I knew I shouldn't have! Anyway, from all the reading I've done, was convinced Mumsnet members would give me well needed talking to. Will now stay try and stay away from scary websites!
Will ask Doctor at appointment but from your comments, don't think I need to worry about any urgent attention before then.
