Is anyone else a little bit crampy? I've read all over the internet that this is normal, but I'm still worried! I want to feel pregnant, sure, but I want to feel queasy or something like that. Not crampy! This is driving me crazy. I don't want to be constantly worried I'm having an ectopic pregnancy or a miscarriage. I want to be excited that our dreams are coming true. Any advice?
Well I'm a little crampy here and there...very very mild though...I am reading that it means are babies are getting comfy in our uterus...and it's normal. Watch out for intense/painful cramping and bleeding. But even then, it's not a definite you are m/c.
But love, I'm the same way...I feel crazy. I bought two pregnancy books when I found out, and I am reading them at night...but then I set the book down and begin to laugh b/c I just don't think this is real.
In fact, I'm going to the store after work and buying more HPT's. So far I have a dollar store, FRER, and Rite Aid generic brand. I'm going to buy Clearblue, Answer, and FRER.
I hope you feel better though--but from what mama's are saying, it's normal.
I certainly hope so! I know dwelling on it probably makes me think the cramps are worse than they are. They're not keeping me awake, I feel better when I get up and move around, and sometimes I think it's just gas pains, know what I mean?? You all want to visit the OB, I just want it to be April of 2010 already! J/k. Hopefully after a short time, I'll calm down and just be able to enjoy the fact that we're finally having a baby!!
I have been cramping since I O'd! This has been my biggest complaint. But everything seems fine so far. I haven't had bleeding, or any horrible cramps, just achy and worrisome. They should go away, but will return here and there, especially toward the end. Wait till you start getting braxton hicks! They are really gonna confuse you! We will have several posts about those pain in the butt false labor pains!!... But I hope your cramping goes away soon, so you don't have to worry anymore!
