Pregnant with #4...

So, you would think that I wouldnt be surprised, or worried, by "symptoms", seeing as I have experience being prego.

I am a little less than 4 weeks (according to my EDD... thinking it may be off), and already feeling lots of pressure in my vaginal area, as well as sharp pains (I like to call them zingers) down into my vagina. It is very uncomfortable, and even painful. I dont remember having this this early in my other pregnancies. Have any of you had this happen in your pregnancies? Also, I feel really bloated, full, and my rib keeps hurting... and, seeing as all in all I'm really not "that pregnant" yet.... It kinda puzzles me to be feeling all of this this soon.

Congrats on #4!! I'm also expecting my 4th and I hardly feel pregnant at all. I think each pregnancy is so different, but you are more likely to feel symptoms early on in successive pregnancies. I remember having those "zingers" with my 2nd and 3rd babies, although that was later on in the pregnancies. I wish I had a few more symptoms to reassure me that things are going okay in there, but I'll most likely start getting the nausea and fatigue around week 6. I would feel lucky to be feeling things so early, at least you know know everything's okay!

I've had the "zingers". I get sharp pains that are near my groin. I haven't had those much in the last week or two but had them a lot around 3-4 weeks. So basically right after I found out I was pregnant. I think mine are actually from the CL cyst on my left ovary. The pains were just shooting down kind of...like I think it was from my ovary but I felt it somewhere else. My ovary is HUGE from that cyst right now and the doc said he wasn't surprised it was hurting but it's completely normal for that to happen. I guess it's also possible to have some cramps like that just from things stretching, especially with your 4th. I bet everything is just fine and it's just one of those things that happens to keep us good and scared for a full 12 weeks.

Its probably not much help but, I am 8 DPO and I started getting those kind of pains plus bloating and gassy feeling in my rib cage...I had all of those symptoms with DD but they all started around week 9 not week 3/4....

Congrats and welcome! I definitely felt more uncomfortable earlier with my 4th. I think my 3rd did me in LOL. I was in maternity clothes almost immediately because I was so crampy and uncomfortable! I swear I felt every cell divide! The nice thing about it is that I was so experienced I didn't worry very much. I was able to relax. HH9M!

Yay!! I started getting cramps at like 7DPO with this pregnancy, so I was hoping it was implanting or something!! Fingers crossed for you!!!

Thanks everyone. I'm guess It may be time to figure out where I put my maternity clothes lol. I kick myself for getting rid of the majority of them after my 3rd Sad Helps thy at its really nice out here, so I can bust out the maternity shorts I was wearing at the very end. That, and I can wear flowy shirts... Having things press there definitely is making things worse. I was so hoping to keep this pregnancy hush hush for a while, but looks like that isnt going to happen
