So I have been having light cramping on and off for about 3 days. I got a BFP this a.m. which is the day AF is due. I called the Dr. this a.m. to tell her about my BFP. I had a m/c back in Aug. and she told me w/ next preg. she would follow me closely. Anyway, the nurse acted like the cramping was a big concern. What do you guys think? Now suddenly I have gone from ecstatic to worried.

I'm sorry you're going through this! I'd be crazy with worry, too...I think it's natural. This is one of those things where you just have to trust your instict. The "cramping" feelings are considered normal by so many, but for those of us who've miscarried, we know better. And it's difficult to tell the difference between cramping and growing/stretching a lot of the time anyway, so that's something to consider, too. Drink a TON of water, rest, and just relax- you'll probably be able to tell if you think it's okay or not. If your still worried, then it never hurts to call and go in. The most that could happen is you could get reassurance, right? I mean, they'd probably get your levels and possibly even an u/s (even though it's early).

Let us know what you decide to do!! I bet everything is fine, but you do what you're comfortable with!!!

I would be worried too... because I'm the worrying type. I had al ot of cramping in the beginning w/ this pregnancy & things seem okay so far

It's actually very common to cramp especially around the beginning while the baby is implanting. ((hugs)) i'm sorry you are scared. Are they going to see you?

I never really worried about cramps because I can tell the difference in regular cramps and the ones that have you doubling over. I always thought that light cramping was totally normal. Ive had them off and one since before I got my BFP.

Well, I guess they aren't that worried b/c she was going to ask the Dr. and call me back and I haven't heard a peep. I'm actually not that worried either...the nurse was the one who scared me. She asked if I was having any cramping or spotting and I said I was having light cramping, which I had w/ last BFP. She said "oh since you have a history of m/c...they might be worried about the cramping."
She is the one who freaked me out a little.
