yeah i have had cramping, like period cramps, ever since i found out (@ 5 weeks).. i think its all in my head.

Mentioned it to the doctor, all she said was "any blood"? I said nope, she said "well everyone different your probably just feeling the stretching more than most people".

She said she never had any cramping with her 3 kids, but her sister was like you in agony with it...

So id say mark it down to stretching...

I still get the cramps (@10 weeks), but i just ignore them now, until there is something else with them to worry me... because believe me if i were to go to the doctor with every little twinge or question i had, well I may as well just move in with her

Im starting to realise too, that the less you read on DR GOOGLE the better

Thanks! Feel much better now. And I did stay well away from Dr. Google this morning. I have been very good since I found out I was pregnant and not being a cyberchondriac at all. The only thing I read is What to Expect when Your Expecting.

Yea i was gettin really bad pains also and still pretty sick so rang the nurse for a cert for work just mentioned the pain as had it last week also when i was in with her. Not the usual period type cramp its just on my left side, (ps i had 2 surgerys last year, appendectomy and bowel adhesions) Nurse decided to scare the living daylights out of me and said there may be something wrong and i needed to go see the doc straight away. I was crying before i even got off the phone.

Got my boyfriend to leave work come home and bring me to doc as nurse told me not to drive. Was shaking like a leaf while waiting to go in.
Anyway not a thing wrong, actually things good. Pain is due to the stretching and puking and it hurting me so much because of the previous opps and muscles still bit sensitive.

Next time i have a pain dont think i will call her. And i only rang for a cert. Just mentioned the pain in passing.

Neyite I had the same on my first pregnancy, it was so much like a bad period I was absolutely convinced the pregnancy test had either been wrong that I wasn't pregnant at all or else there was something wrong.
It was all just stretching inside.

Thankfully its not so bad this time, though making up for what I lack in stretching pains with an abundance of morning ( read: all feckin day!) sickness and tiredness!

Hope the pain eases off soon x

Omg Suucee I wouldn't be ringing that nurse again in a hurry, she must have given you an awful fright

Still no proper symptoms yet ladies apart from a few cramps but I do always carry a plastic bag around with me for fear il get sick at any stage!

I'll be logging out now as we are off on our holidays for 10days, booked 6months ago so we v.excited-last one for a long time i'd say! Dr. said im fine to travel as it is only a short flight.
I hope the sickness dies down for all and il try and keep up to date on the goings on!

xx

Hope you have a fab hol saggycaggy!

I'm now only managing one meal a day (lunch), no wonder I'm so feckin tired with so little food! I can't wait to reach the 12 week mark to see the back of this tiredness!

Not complaining though, I'd sooner have symptoms for reassurance than none at all at this stage

We're telling my folks tomorrow, I can't wait! Just hope it doesn't but the jinx on things (I'll be 8 weeks tomorrow going by the hospital revised dates)

Cap thats so exciting telling the folks . What was your early scan like? Is it on the tummy or transvaginal? What could you see? I'm all curious about mine.

Still not a jot of symptoms here. Cramps have stopped, as have the twinges. Boobs not as sore as they were, and still no food/sickness issues. Trying not to get too concerned - apparently no symptoms are a symptom in WTEWYE book. I would love though to have some symptom to say "Yep, everythings fine". Going into my 6th week so maybe from here on I will get some.

Thought I'd have a nosy in the April thread as I am due on March 30th and with a history of over-duers in my family I most likely will end up delivering in April

Neyite I didn't get any symptoms until 6 weeks and then they hit me like a tonne of bricks, I'd say enjoy your symptom free days while they last. I'm dying for next week when I'll be 12 weeks and hopefully some let up from the sickness and tiredness

Hey all, can I join in?

I'm 7 weeks, due on 27th April (realistically May) and have a wee man who's 15 months old. Caprilicious, we were on this board together 2 years ago as well!

My only symptom is the tiredness, which has hit me like a train in the last two weeks and because of his nibs, naps aren't an option. I'm only just back in school after the summer, so luckily, everyone else is tired too so the binbags under my eyes and forgetfulness aren't standing out! Have only told my hubbie and one of the girls at work, so will be using this thread a good bit for another while yet! Looking forward to chatting to ye.

Hello,
I am due on April 2 2012 and am very excited as this is my first baby and we had been trying ttc since we got married two years ago and were begining to worry that something might have been wrong.
I feel very tired over the last few weeks and have been sick a couple of times but apart from that am feeling okay. My appetite has disappeared though, which isn't like me

I have my first scan on 20 September and have my fingers crossed that everything will be okay. Is anyone else going to the Coombe?

Hey all, went in for tests on Wednesday and the doc offered me a scan, couldn't see much through the tummy due to empty bladder so he did a T/V, got a good picture and he let us listen to the heartbeat. It really started hitting home, I was so so happy but a teensy bit scared too, but it was great reassurance.


Also got a great tip for morning sickness, try minty things. A friend of mine recommended putting a mint in a glass of water and just sipping at it, haven't tried that yet but got a pack of silvermints last night and they're great for keeping the nausea away!

8 weeks yesterday and hoping the sickness has eased. Havent been sick since fri, (and think that was the chinese as was feeling fine before hand and kinda stuffed meself) and not feeling sick as often. . Had tried everything, ginger ale, gingernut biscuits, flat 7up, fizzy 7up silvermints, minntcrisp, barley sweets (ps wouldnt recommend, made me feel worse) eating before getting out of bed, the list is endless. Every time i thought something was working i think i became immune to it as was soon sick again. Ice cold water and lots of it is really all that helps.

Thought it a bit earlier but feel like my tummy is getting bigger already. Thought i was bloated at first but now not sure. Still feeling pretty tired and not sleeping great at mo as keep getting cramps in the middle of the night. But anything better than being sick. For those of you who are suffering try a few of above tips, didnt work for me but might help ye. Oh and a hot water bottle for the cramps is great also. Problem is when you wake up in middle of the night and its gone cold, was tempted to wake the other half the other night to refill it but resisted the urge.

Welcome to all the newbies and congrats.

Neyite it was definitely after the 6 week mark before I started to get sick then one day literally woke up, had to go straight back to sleep on the couch & barely moved from it all day!
I can understand your anxiety as I was the same til the morning sickness kicked in. Now I'd just love a days break from it!

Deemark congrats!!! I know the feeling about the tiredness. When I'm off I have to nap when herself does. I feel like such a geriatric going for an afternoon nap in the middle of the day!
Hopefully it'll ease off soon for us both

Suucee I know the feeling, once I get in the zone of being sick, nothing can get me out of it! though the odd time 7 up does give a little relief, though must be in a can, not a bottle makes me sound like such a diva

Congrats littlemissfixit & PonyP on your recent positive results! we're growing quite a group here

Shuwaah that's great that you got your scan too & all is well!
Neyite for mine she did an external scan but as I had an empty bladder she did a transvaginal too so was able to get really clear pics & a good strong heartbeat

I've attached a pic of my scan, still kind of surreal


Its a wee bit fuzzy, but that's the head down the bottom

Well we told my folks last night. Only it went a lil ar$eways the way I did it! we were out for a meal, my sister & her partner plus my parents were there.
Baba is due aroun tht time of my sisters birthday next year. I had planned in my mind to say 'Guess what sister is getting for her birthday next year......a niece/nephew' & show them the scan.
Except I said 'Guess what sister is getting for her birthday next year' and handed them the scan. They thought it was her pregnant
