Hello Moms

Just signed up for this site & this is my 1st post....

I am 28 years old I have 2 girls 10yrs and 19 months ... Due in November

I know that I should not feel like a rookie here, .... but I do.
Just like all new expecting moms I am falling under the nerves of miscarriage or complications ... & searching online usually does not help right? So I figured I would find I site & stick with it ... & see if that helps my mind a bit.

here is some info

I have been blessed with 2 healthy pregnancies without complications, I am 6w2d

I have had nausea & some vomiting ... overheating @ night ,... crazy nose ... VERY tired ... and waves of these pulling sentsations in my mid section. Not like menstral cramps just more of a stretching feeling ... but I also have back pain ( prior to pregnancy ) So my question is more about putting together everything and deciding if or when to get worried ... & of course sorting through the pregnancy worries the best way possible to enjoy every day with the family I have. Thanks again for any and all support.

As long as you aren't bleeding and cramping its probably normal. Round ligament stretching feels like sharp side of the lower abs pain. I feel like I have deep tissue bruising above my pubic bone. I'm assuming its normal. If you got sharp cervical pains with your others, they might happen earlier. BH contractions happen earlier as well. Lots of fun!

Congrats and welcome! Since its your 3rd, you are going to experience stretching and cramps alot more with this one. The more you have, the more intense they become, sooner! Your symptoms sound excellent, including all the aches and pains!

I agree! Sounds normal to me. I have had a lot of cramping and what i assume is round ligament stretching with this pregnancy that i never experienced my first time around. It ever hurts (briefly) when i sneeze!
