I've had mild cramping up to this point, it felt nothing like AF cramping. Today the cramps are much more intense and feel exactly like AF is about to start. I've read a million times that this is common, but since she is due right about now I'm just feeling stressed. I want this baby so bad!

Try not to stress (I know easier said than done). It is very common to have mild cramping. I have cramped this time since I took the test. And last night it was pretty intense. I have been freaking out.

Just try to take it easy - both mentally and physically.

lot's of sticky dust going your way.

I know it's scary but I found out I was pregnant the day my period was due and I felt so weird with strange cramps like "deep" in there -

Easier said than done, but you're going to have interesting cramps for a while while your uterus starts to grow, some of which definitely feel like period pains (at least they did to me), so please try not to stress yourself out.

I remember being worried and expecting my period every time I wiped because they seemed so similar, but they do quiet down...I think I was done with that cramping around 8 weeks -

Just think, soon you'll have "holy cow I'm really growing here!" muscle cramps

Totally normal, I know it's scary but you'll make it through try to relax. Hugs.

I have had the same thing...crampy like AF will show up any second. I had the same thing with my first pregnancy and was told it is totally normal. I guess we should think of it as our beans snuggling in extra tight for the next 9 months!

Our bodies are doing overtime right now, ligaments are stretching, and hormones are running like crazy. I know I will soon be feeling these pains to, I started showing with Sophie at 8 WEEKS not bloat either. I am a petite (not in height) woman and my tummy goes back wash board each kid and my muscles are very tight. Long story short it hurts like H*&&. Hang in there. (I know I already posted in your thread but just wanted to add this in).
