sorry can I be NOOB for a min? 1st pregnancy in my whole family, and out of all my friends.
what kind of pain is bad? i'm super nervous, I've got some new pains and don't know if I should worry. its so incredibly early. i have this sharp pinching randomly in my uterus, could that be it 'adjusting'? its not horrible, kind of like when you cough too hard an feel a zing of pain like you pull a muscle down there. or maybe that just me... anyways, anyone else have some interesting pains going on?
as of tonight i can officialy say mood swings involving crying and these pains are my first symptoms
Very normal. Everything is stretching out, your uterus is expanding to make space for the baby when it gets bigger, and your ovaries are a bit swollen because they are helping create and regulate hormones for pregnancy. Unfortunately, all this hurts.
wow you ladies rock, I'm not alone in the crazy stretching pains! I'm sure there are many more to come, I just wish I could get my betas umbers already and then i would feel better until i get my 1st u/s... idk when that will be yet. LOL
Round ligament pains for sure. Since your body is new to this you're going to have all sorts of new, weird sensations and pains. Your body is pumping out hormones that are going to relax your uterine & pelvic ligaments to prepare for pregnancy and birth, and since your body can't discriminate between what needs to be relaxed and what doesn't you may also find that you'll get pains in your back, feet, hips, neck, etc. Back pain in early pregnancy is one of my biggest issues due to that relaxation. It bites! But it's all normal. Welcome to pregnancy !
