Like the title says. When AF was due for me I really thought she would turn up at any minute I had cramping and pms. When it didn't show and I got my BFP I still had cramping although its getting less now. Mostly in my lower back like AF but lighter. Has anyone else got this still? It's making me worry a lot even though I read its normal.

Also when does morning sickness start? How dumb to worry about not having morning sickness I know but I read its better to have it. A healthier pregnancy?..

I haven't felt any cramps, but m/s doesn't usually start for me until 8-10 weeks in. I have heard some people never get sick at all but still have healthy babies though.

I am still quite crampy with a constant backache Tigerlilly.

With DS the m/s kicked in at 6weeks and lasted until about 17-18weeks but it is different for everyone. As horrible as it was it was reassuring IYKWIM.

Hi OP,
I was having cramp like feelings on my sides from virtually as soon as I had found out. My doc did say it is very normal as your body starts very early on preparing itself for bubby, in saying this, it did not ease my mind I still worry although ironically on Wednesday it started to settle with now just the odd twinge here and there yay lol!
Also, my cramp like feelings were more like I had pulled a muscle as opposed to period pains, is this what your feeling?
I will tell you though after orgasming you can cramp a little and get this weird feeling but I've asked the girls on here who say it is all normal so don't worry to much about that either, mine settled about 20 - 30 minutes after with no spotting or bleeding.
I hope this is helpful, sounds like your a little like me where it's hitting a little harder than some rolleyes.gif

I guess I should stop worrying about everything. It's hard not to when you have never been PG before every twitch, ache or tug makes you worry!

ETA GMC88 yes! Like sometimes feels like I have a stitch too! And I felt that stitch feeling from about 9 dpo I think. But sometimes it just feels like light AF ones too.

I get cramps too. It was actually what made me think I was pregnant, as I had what I thought was my AF a week early, but it was just a 4 day long implantation bleed. Cramps were one of my few symptoms last time too. They lasted about two days and now it's the occasional twinge and backache here and there. I wouldn't worry unless you were bleeding at all, it's just your body preparing itself.

Yep I'm getting quite a few 'twangs' and mild cramps, as well as stitch like feelings and and mild back ache.

It was worse in the first week but seems to be settling down now....No M/S yet and I'm 5weeks 5 days today.

I've been getting them on and off. I'm told it's normal. But it still worries me a bit.

It's my first pregnancy too. I was crampy on and off for a few weeks or so after I found out 3w6d. My morning sickness kicked in at 5w4d and so far hasn't really stopped 26w1d. Just about everyone i've spoken too tells me they were never sick at all - no fair!!  sick.gif

*this came up in recent topics - which is why i posted, not realizing it's the wrong dig... baby brain... lol

Not so far with this pregnancy but I did with the other DD1 & DD2, so bad infact with DD1 it put me in hospital for a few days.

It is mostly normal and if there is not bleeding I wouldnt be too worried.

I had cramps for a lot of the first trimester last time, but it was totally normal. I've had a bit so far this time, but not as much as last time.

As for ms, that was one of the reasons I tested, but then I had it from 4 weeks-ish to 26 weeks last time. It's different for everyone and even in the same person over different pregnancies, so try not to compare yourself and your symptoms to other people too much if it doesn't make you feel better. If it makes you feel better though, go for it!

Tiger-Lily I had no MS with DD at all, and so far this time none either. She was a perfectly healthy baby (although one older woman at work did try to scare me with that whole if you don't have m/s you'll miscarry story).

I had a few cramps about 10 days ago when I was convinced I was p/g and some back pain (not like AF) but nothing much else symptom-wise.

#18 Mr-Salt

Posted 09 January 2013 - 07:56 AM

Well my cramping has stopped only the slight twinge here and there now and my BBs aren't even as tender (I could lay on my stomach!) I have been feeling kind of quesy yesterday afternoon and this morning with a loss of appetite which is strange because I've been so hungry

I have no morning sickness yet and it worries me to. I  don't really have any cramps but did around week 4 when I didn't know I was preggers.

#20 jcw21

Posted 10 January 2013 - 03:28 PM

I think the stats are that around 80% of women get MS so I wouldn't worry too much if you don't, you are just one of the very lucky ones :-)


I counted myself very lucky last time, I was nauseous and exhausted for about the first 13 weeks, but I could still function, I know some stories of people who get it really bad which must be so awful

DW has had cramps on and off, more so off.

Her boobs are really sore, like really really sore, and she gets tired every now and then.

Were not worried, if something bad will happen it will happen, theres no point being nervous over something that may happen.
Just be positive, and as long as there is no blood your good!

Also, each day is one day closer to your next baby goal!

I'm 4 weeks + 3 days and I'm getting AF style cramps. I keep expecting to find blood every time I go to the toilet.

I feel a little nauseous when I'm hungry, which seems to be all the time! Although my appetite has gone a bit too.

Hey guys, just dropping in from the October thread. Can anyone tell me if they got cramps in week 6? Mine are a dull ache above the pelvis bone for the last few days...

Yeah I'm 8 weeks tomorrow and I'm still getting on and off cramps. Sometimes when i move suddenly i get a sharp twinge in my groin on one side or the other.  I've had a scan a couple of days ago and all is well.  It's all just stretching and round ligament pain. original.gif
