I feel like my cramps or pulling or tightening or whatever it is that is going on in my belly that I am overanalyzing are worse at night when I am trying to go to bed than during the day. It takes me a while to get comfortable and some nights one side is uncomfortable to sleep on and another night it will be the other. Can anyone else relate? Or could I just be noticing them more?

Sorry for being such a freak, I know I have first time mommy/former M/C tattooed on my forehead with all these fears. Today is just a particularly scary day because it marks the day when I started to miscarry my first pregnancy in terms of the span of days it took from finding out I was pregnant to losing it. I know there is nothing to say it will happen again or happen on this day, but for some reason it is really freaking me out.

Cramps and pulling are perfectly normal! I know it must be scary but try to relax. We will all keep everything crossed for you!

Thanks Michelle It's just really scaring me. I know I need to calm down, I am hoping my pre-pre natal appointment on Friday will quell some of these concerns that I have. I'm also hoping that they do blood work to let me know my BETAS.

Hey girl. I'm in the same boat as you. I'm absolutely miserable at night.

I had mild OHSS after my last round of injectibles and I never got "better" once I got pregnant (it got a little worse). I'm SO BLOATED at night, I have tons of period like cramps and the bloat is causing me to not get comfortable.

So don't worry, you're not alone...Hang in there!

I noticed last night that my cramping seemed way worse than during the day. I decided that maybe it's because i have more time to focus on the cramping when i'm trying to relax and sleep unlike during the day when i'm busy all day.

NO this is totally normal. I feel the awkward pulls on and off. TMI- if I have to get up to pee it always feels a million times worse with the pressure....
Just wait til your lower abdomen feeld like a lemon is rolling around and you are trying to roll from side to side.....WEIRD!!

That's what I'm thinking, that I have more time to let my mind run and focus on the cramping. I'm also going to experiment with eating less for dinner. I find that I eat smaller meals during the day and the cramping seems a lot better, but I tend to have a bigger dinner (and dessert!) and I'm wondering if that is really upsetting my digestive system and what feels like cramps is really just my poor tummy trying to digest my meal! We'll see if that helps tonight.

While I don't wish cramping on anyone, it's good to hear that I am not alone! I wish pregnancy symptoms and impending AF symptoms were completely different! I think a lot of mom's to be would rest easier if they were clearly distinguishable! ha

I've been wondering that too - by the end of the night i am SO disgustingly gassy!! So i think maybe the cramps might have something to do with that too.

Thanks Wendy It's good to hear from all you momma's! Really helps with the nerves. Haha now about that lemon...weird, but I'm sure it is totally cool at the same time

I get mine at night, I think that is when I notice more because it is quiet and it is just me laying there and just seeing what I can feel (if that makes sense) I also have noticed I get cramps in the morning when I wake up and I am laying there, and I realized it is because I have to pee....so I get crampy because my bladder is soo full. Once I pee they go away, and I don't really want to call them cramps just more discomfort like my body reminding me I cannot hold it like I used to.

I get mine all day. And like you, I'm paranoid about every single pull and cramp, even though I KNOW that they're normal! I wish that I felt more pulling than cramping, though! I also understand hitting those "milestones" of when you last miscarried. I know that there's no magic number, but it SEEMS more promising to make it past those markers, doesn't it?

It really does iamkc. There is something about getting through today unscathed that really means everything to me.

I'm having a hard time deciding if it's pulling, tugging, cramping, all I know is I feel things going on down there and it is freaking me out! But at the same token...it does make sense considering the body is expanding and making room for the baby...ah it's just so hard to focus on anything else!

If it makes you feel better, I have 2 boys, happy and here, and yet, with every cramp, I rush to check toilet paper, fingers, a towel, or whatever else I can look for spotting on! I just ran to check while writing this! HA!

Well so far so good today. Still crampy obviously, but no blood and nothing severe or sharp. Just gotta get through this day...

Idk, I hope this is true, but I really feel like this pregnancy will be different. My last pregnancy was my first time every being pregnant, I have no reason to believe I will have any issues carrying a child, just gotta stay positive. Something just feels right about this little one, the pulling and tugging is there and freaking me out, but it just feels right this time.
