cramps

I don't remember somehow if I got cramps like these before. I feel like my period is going to start with all over cramps, mostly this major dull af feeling and some pinches here and there. My cervix has been hurting too.

Anyone having this?

I had this when I first found out at like 4 weeks... I'm sure its different for everyone as to how long they last so It could be very normal. When I had my 1st I swore I was having a mc and was so sad for like the 1st month so it must have lasted longer than this time. Is this your 1st? I wonder if it's more crampy the 1st time the uterus expands?

I've been having mild cramps but the other day I felt like af was definitely coming...thankfully she did not! I know that with other pregnancies I had cramps for awhile. I hope that you have a sticky little bean and s/he is just getting nice and comfortable:). Do you have your first appointment set up yet? Maybe your dr would do an ultra sound to ease your worries?

You guys I totally forgot I made this post! Well, after those cramps I had bleeding. But it stopped. I just hope everything's ok.

I know I've been so very tired probably why I forgot this post. hehe.

I am crampy, too. Although, this is my first so I have nothing to compare it to. My first appt isn't until August 13th so I read up on it. Seems that it can be normal as long as it isn't severe. I have not been worried as it hasn't been bad nor have I had any bleeding. I hear you on the tired thing....I took a three hour nap today and am totally ready for bed right now (it's only 9:30 here).

The cramps and bleeding had gone away and today they BOTH came back again. It's red spotting. The fact that I have nausea makes me hopeful but with an incomplete (missed) miscarriage you can still have symptoms just by virtue of the lingering hormones. I just don't know what to think. I can't go to the ER because I don't have health insurance yet. It comes into effect on Aug 1. So til then I am just hoping it's not an ectopic pregnancy and I'm pretty sure I'd know I guess if I had THAT severe pain on one side. It's pretty common for me to bleed in my pregnancies, like every one of them I've bled. The ones where I have kept my symptoms worked out and for three I had miscarriages. I can't conclude anything but that I am just going to try to wait til Aug 1 and hope for the best.

I am sure everything is fine and worrying too much won't help, either. I will be thinking of you and praying for a sticky little bean!!

Thank you so much. I have an appointment next week to see my dr. I just don't know what it is about this pregnancy that since I found out, I just can't believe that I am pregnant. I know since this is my 5th baby I it can happy to me...it's just there is something inside of me telling me that it's not going so well. I just have this horrid feeling inside of me that makes me think something is wrong. I still have mild symptoms and sometimes bad nausea and some vomiting but it just seems off. I am still getting cramps but no bleeding today, not a good or bad sign. I ordered a doppler so let's see if I can find the heartbeat with it. I might not be able to find it til next week but I'm going to try.

From what I've read online, dopplers are iffy before 14 wks.

If you called your local crisis pregnancy center, they might be willing to do a quick u/s for you, even though this isn't a "crisis pregnancy".

((Hugs))

I just heard that even if you don't have welfare you can work with your state to get some insurance coverage for pregnancy. maybe you can call them to see what you could get? even if it just coveres you for the next 2 weeks I would call and you could get that bleeding checked out. are you having pain in your side or anything? I've heard that eptopic pg are really painful so i bet you would have a feeling something was painfully wrong if that were the case.
