Early pregnancy symptoms....

Since Jeremiah is just about 10 months, you would think all the signs of pregnancy would still be fresh in my mind!!! But they are not. lol. So I am probably somewhere around 4 1/2 to 5 weeks preggo and a few times a day I will feel a pulling or stretching/crampy feeling really low in my abdomen...as well as slight lower back pain...I mean very slight...it's almost like an achy feeling. And I will feel sick a few times a day. I don't remember the back pain/achiness with Jeremiah...but I could have had it. Does it sound fairly normal for this stage? I am just paranoid of a miscarriage of course. I set up an appt. with my midwife, but that's not until the end of March. I requested a blood test to check my HCG levels, but the receptionist said it's not necessary since I got a postive HPT??? The midwife/nurse is suppose to call me back soon and talk to me about it. Sometimes I hate talking to the receptionists...it's like they don't really care sometimes....maybe it's just me and my hormones perceiving that. I just need peace of mind with the numbers I guess....

I also feel like my period is going to start or something...it's strange...as for the sore boobs...with Jeremiah I had sore nipples...but this time around since I am nursing, it's harder to tell because everything has been desensitized almost...I guess it's all normal! =) Yea...when I had my miscarriages I had severe abdominal cramps with bleeding...I hope your u/s goes well!!! =) I hope I can get one in the next couple of weeks here.

Brayden is 6 months so when I had gotten pregnant this time I thought that I would know all the sytmptoms and stuff... WRONG!! This pregnancy is totally different. With Brayden I had really bad morning sickness... with this one I didnt get sick at all.. So with my mentality I was thinking this one is a girl but we just found out its another boy! Pregnancys are so different.. its wierd. You would think that your body would do the same thing every time you were pregnant...

Oh wow Kelly....I guess pregnancies are all different! I think we are going to let this baby be a suprise! I think I will finally be patient and be suprised! It was just killing me the first time around and I had to know, but this time, I think....I think...lol...I will be suprised. Hubby is thinking girl this time....but he said that at first with Jeremiah, but deep down was hoping for a boy. I really don't know this time...maybe once I get further along I will figure it out. =)

Sounds normal to me! I remember before I got my BFP I kept feeling like I was going to start my period so I waited and waited lol and it never started of course...... so I think the crampiness and back ache are totally normal! Congrats!!!

Oh you go to MyMedHelp...... Once your there you can select account setting..... then there will be little tabs and you select the one that says Tracker...... set up the pregnancy tracker!!! Then when you leave notes it will say TO: and then Comment and then Under the big white comment box it will say Show Ticker, you would just drop down the little arrow and select pregnancy ticker and it will show after all your comments.... and once you add it..... all you have to do is select to show your ticker after each comment you leave! :-)
