I don't recall having the same level of cramps this early on last time. Nothing painful. Just kind of a dull ache in my lower abdomen off an on with those sharper pains I'm attributing to RLP. Of course that has me all freaked out despite having no other reason to think something is wrong. What gives? I'm assuming this just starts earlier in subsequent pregnancies. Can anyone relate?
I'm noticing a lot more difficulties with this third pregnancy early on than the others.
I think it's just our bodies remembering what to do so round ligament pains are happening sooner...etc. Our bellies are popping out sooner. I'm counting down the weeks until the second trimester or at least 10 weeks when I'm hoping most of these really yucky symptoms will go away.
For my 2nd pregnancy I had so much cramping I once went to the ER because I thought that there was definitely something wrong! Turns out their wasn't. I think the staff at the ER thought I was totally crazy. They had me wait there all night! Anyways, things turned out to be fine. I am now on my 4th pregnancy and have had hardly any cramping at all.

I think maybe we just forget how bad/not bad the cramping was in the past. I've had mild cramping and some sharper pains (RLP I guess) that I don't recall really having previously. I know I had cramping, but I'm totally paranoid this time despite the insane M/S (which also seems worse than my first pregnancy though I don't know that it actually is)
I wish I'd kept a better journal of my first trimester symptoms last time. :/
I know for a fact I wasn't feeling this nauseous with Teagan. That didn't start until 7 weeks. I was up with nausea a few times last night. Bluuuuurgh. And I think my boobs are up a cup size already. What is going on in these boobies? Its not like they've been inactive. I mean. Come on, ladies. You've got quite a bit of time to prep for this bean.
