Im 5 weeks today! Don't worry I had the same thing over the weekend its a combination of gas and your uterus growing.. Sleep was the only thing that helped me.. btw to help w gas and bloating pain that's safe for the baby try Simethicone.. Anti gas relief (Mylanta chewable tabs or Gas X strips)

Hi girls.. I know it's super early to ask if this is pregnancy or craziness.. Through your experiences I've been reading the whole time and it makes me think that this is positive.

I had my last period June 8, we made love last June 12, 14, 15, early morning of 16th. Today, June 17, when I closed the room fan i felt i was gonna throw out and stated feeling dizzy. Going to my work around 7am, I got irritated with smoke and felt nauseous. Had some light breakfast, and after an hour I rushed to the cr and finally throw out (nothing). As the day continues, I was feeling dizzy and nauseous. I don't even have appetite eating lunch.

Please help me, this is very important to me, my first and really want to be prepared for it.

Don't feel bad I'm 13 wks and still having cramps like my cycle is about to start I did have light spotting but that was from a uti! But its a combo of gas and ur uterus expanding and u also have take into consideration that ur muscles are starting to stretch apart as well but If it becomes too painful see ur doc or at least bring it up at ur next visit for their imput!

I had really bad cramps which I later found out was implantation cramping but when I was 4 weeks I had bad cramps.on my right side which they said when you are supposed to have your period you will have cramps which should feel like you are going to start. Unless they are so bad you go to your knees and bleeding then you have to call your doctor.

So there's nothing worry about then. Cuz I did a test @home was positive went 2get a test done @the clinic but I was told that if it was pos. @home then it would be d same there. I was told I was 5weeks pregnant now i'm 6weeks & I do to get cramps and i'm worrying about it also. But since yall are experiencing the same thing then I guess it's ok.

Some blood is normal. Filling up a pad or pantiliner with blood is not! Cramps are Normal. I'm 13 weeks and still get cramps. Just a growing uterus. If you have blood coming out that can clot together get to the ER.

I too have had horrible cramps I'm 5 weeks and 6 days along. 2nd pregnancy and 2nd child, with my first I didn't cramp at all! This one is new to me and scary, but I keep hearing its normal so that keeps me sane.

I had really bad cramps and went to the walk-in and everything turned out fine. I feel as though, if you are concerned, get it checked out. Every pregnancy is different, you never know what could be happening to cause your pains.

I'm 4 weeks 6 days. I've had the same problem and I am very restless sleeping at night

I am 7 weeks and have felt sore and had some spotting. My doctor said its normal as long as its the light pink or dark brown like the end of a period. You need to be concerned with bright red blood and a lot of it. That's a miscarriage.

Crampin is normal as long as there's no blood you have no need to worry.. but gettin up and movin around or takin a warm not hot bath or shower can help or usin a heating pad and pillow for support is ok too
