first pregnancy

Hello everyone. I am 22 and just found out this week that I am pregnant. My husband and I have tried for about 3 years and nothing every happened until now.  I took 5 HPT and they all said positive. The lil apps on my phone say I could be 5 weeks along. I haven't made a doctors appointment yet but I am going to.  I know that people experience different symptoms or signs during pregnancy. I have been experiencing some cramps as is my period is about to start but it still hasn't.  Has anyone experienced this feeling before,  or am I the only one? Also, small constipation ( sorry if TMI )

Congrats! You will experience a lot of ' not normal ' feeling. Its very normal to have cramps. Kick your feet up and relax. the constipation is also normal. Eat fiber. Metamucil is safe during pregnancy. And drink tons of water. Happy for you. Congrats!
