So I took the dollar test this am and I got a faint but darker than last time two lines. Followed it up with a first response. $11.00 what???? Lol. Anyway now I seem to be cramping a bit. Kinda like I am about to start AF but not as bad. Af is actually due tomorrow fyi. I'm not really nervous but it seems like when I'm active I feel the cramping and at night. Anyone else have that? Any of my rienfs here have any updates?
I had some mild cramping in the beginning. It wasn't nearly as strong as when my period is starting though. I was concerned because I didn't have this with my two previous pregnancies but my Dr told me it was normal and not to worry unless it became more intense and I started bleeding.
Period like cramps are very common - I had them off and on most of the first trimester - it your uterus expanding to make room for the baby. I would not worry unless the cramps become severe or are accompanied by bleeding.
Yay!!!! Congratulations! In the beginning i had that to. In thw beginning the cramps would get a bot worse if i was exercising or doing house work but if i sat down for a few minutes it would stop. That was around 6 weeks...im almost at 10 weeks now and the cramping is a lot less now. I am so happy you got a bfp!! Did the first reaponse come up positive as well??
I was spotting too. Right after sex I bled red then by the end of the day turned brown and then been spotting brown off and on for about a week. Then sometimes I go to the bathroom and wipe and I see light pink. I'm relaxing constantly.
That sounds like what happened to me. I think it was week 5-7ish. I phoned my obgyn and told them what was happening and I also got looked at, and they said it was normal for some woman. As long as you aren't having too much pain and bleeding. It felt like I had an achy ovary during that time as well, and it was just my uterus growing.
I wish you all the best on your pregnancy journey and that this baby sticks!
Omg....you must keep us posted. I really had given up on ttc. I thought at 35 it couldn't happen but God is good. I just don't know how far along I am. According to my lmp I'm 4 weeks but I know I didn't get pregnant while on my period. But it was a really weird period too. Oh well.....guess I will fibd out during my first ultrasound.
OMG!!!! Congratulations! I am so happy for you! Please keep us posted. On a side note AF came today! I am happy as I really thought I was messed up from that miscarriage! When do you see the doctor? (((((((hugs))))))
Oh and yes,,It felt like AF was gonna start at any minute when I was pregnant. I too had a lot of cramping and low back pain.( My pregnancy was doomed from the get go so don't get scared~I had a lot of other issues (low progesterone and low rising HCG levels) along with my pregnancy. )But yes I spotted after we would have sex and I always had cramps and a pulling like sensation. My doc explained to me that was round ligament pain due to things growing and stretching. I have a low pain threshold so I felt everything! I am sooo happy and excited for you.
