Hi Everyone, this is my first pregnancy and I've been having mild cramping daily since I've tested positive. No spotting, just intermittant cramping, acne and some bloating. Is this one of the normal early symptoms? I am a little over 4 weeks right now (I have short cycles so I tested positive at home on CD 25 on).
I thought for sure I was going to get AF, which is why I waited until 4 days after I should've gotten it. I actually waited 4 days after a 30 day cycle would've completed, not even a 28 day since sometimes I'm not regular. I had period-like cramps for a week or two before AF was supposed to be here, and I had some pretty bad ones in the days after finding out I was pregnant, some of them were bad enough to really scare me, but they've eased up a LOT and drinking a lot of water really does help. Something else I'm dealing with is a lot of bloating and some constipation, which I notice really makes me cramp more, too. This is my first pregnancy as well, so I can understand your concern completely! The ladies here are great and have a great way of reassuring each other!
Good luck with everything!!
