Hey ladies, So Im 8 weeks today, according to my LMP.. I started spotting with My Angel (in May) at 9 wks 5 days, and lost him at 9 wks 6 days due to a SCH.. Ive been cramping today and its bugging the crap out of me No spotting or anything but I didnt have spotting with my Angel up until the day before I lost him.. I cramped for weeks... This is jus so scary, and nerve racking... I am full of anxiety.. I really couldnt handle losing this baby too! Its only been 3 mths since I lost my Angel! Anyhoo.. Hoping and Praying everything is fine..
I remember having a lot of cramping around 8 weeks. I went into the dr. and told him that I was having a lot of cramping. Apparently it is when the baby is really moving things around in there making room to grow. However, I know that still scares us so bad to have cramping especially after a loss. Really all you can do is stay off your feet and drink plenty of water. You can take tylenol for pain if it is painful, although I always wanted to "know" how bad it actually hurt. If you want peace of mind you could always go to the hospital and they will do an ultrasound, but I know for me it always means about a 6 hour wait at the ER. So if it isn't too bad, then maybe you can call your dr. monday morning and try to get in and see that little ones heartbeat to help you get past that first milestone. Hugs!
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
I know you are so worried, its hard not to worry. but yes, cramping at this gestation is very normal, I have done it with all of my pregnancies. Take iteasy over the weekend, try to just stay off your feet and drink lots of water. On Monday Iwould call you dr. and let him know how worried you are and if he can see you sooner than later to ease your fears.
