Maybe it's just me but I feel a little crazy, I know some cramping is normal but I can't help but constantly feel anxious that there's going to be blood every time I go to the bathroom.
I know I need to just relax but it's so difficult. The cramps I have are pretty mild this is my first pregnancy so I don't really know what to expect. Anyone else ever feel this way?

I don't have cramping but I have miscarried before so I constantly am checking to see if I am bleeding . I get so nervous I wait tell 12 weeks to get a u/s even . It's hard to stay calm and I think unless you've never had one you worry .

I have had cramping, felt just like my period was going to start with all 3 pregnancies. It has pretty much gone away now, but I still sometimes have a little cramping. It's normal to be anxious. I check the tp every time!!

I had cramps for a full week after I found out I was pregnant, and still get them every so often now too. I ALWAYS check the TP every time I go. I think most of us do

This part of pregnancy is tough! I read, blog, hang out here, and cook to keep myself distracted. But I know that every time I start to cramp, I worry.
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

Its the unknown! I swear the bleeding isn't getting to me , though I check the tp like crazy but the unknown things … like is the baby developing? It''s not just a sac? I read of a molar pregnancy! AHHHHH why do I need to read all these things. I pray every time I start to get anxious since I know we are not made to have fear and doubt in us and it comes from the enemy. I clean and try to do a lot more around the house, cook, play some games, hangout with daughter, get on here, PINTEREST! lol

I pinterest too! I feel the same way, about the development I tend to worry more when I'm relaxing in bed or trying to sleep and am more aware of the cramps. When I'm at work I feel cramps here an there but I don't dwell on them as much.
Ugh I read things all over the internet to try and put my mind at ease but I always come across the complete opposite lol

I've been reading a lot (specifically, non-pregnancy related things!) to help distract me. The thing that probably helps my worrying the most is not googling symptoms. I made the mistake of doing that a couple days ago, and worked myself into a bit of a frenzy that I was having an ectopic pregnancy. DH reminded me that I'm banned from WebMD and googling symptoms (we had to instate that rule during my bout with panic disorder, partly brought on because of googling symptoms). It really does help keep your mind in a better place to not be obsessively searching for answers to why you feel that random twinge.

That said, I'm still worrying a lot, and of course, checking TP.

Thanks to Bokkechick for the lovely siggie.

Well, you ladies keep checking your TP - at least you're not seeing icky brown old blood every time like I am! LOL Talk about worrying!!! Doc says it's all OK and nothing to worry about, but it looks just like right before you start AF, so I keep bracing myself every time I go to the bathroom to see a full blown period has arrived!
