Oh the cramps! Oh the leg pain! Oh the humanity!

Seriously, I'm starting to worry! I am having serious menstrual type cramps tonight with a dull back ache, and flu like leg pains. This happens every month before I get my period, so I am scared to death right now!

Any of you ladies ever experienced this before with previous pregnancies? I have read that it is normal, but seriously this is ridiculous. Like it hurts so bad that I can't sit still for long. I want to sit in a hot tub like I do with af cramps but I know that isn't suppose to be good during early pregnancy.

Any words of wisdom? <---- I'm walking around like this because I'm scared that something bad is going to happen at any moment!

Oh I hope that is all it is! I keep telling myself not to over react. If something is going to happen that there is nothing I can do about it. I am just so paranoid though considering my track record. I have had chemicals pregnancies and early miscarriages in the past. I am probably just over analyzing things. I even ran into the bathroom earlier and took another internet cheapie test to make sure I was still pregnant, lol. The line was still there!

My fingers are crossed for you this time around. I do know that a lot of early pg symptoms are the same as when AF is headed in.

Thanks everyone! I'm bound and determined not to think about it. Especially seeing is how I told my grandmother last night and she was fussing about how "that's not normal, I never had that with any of my kids". Well it was 45 years ago since her last pregnancy....people tend to forget...but of course you can't tell her that.
