This newbie needs some reassurance that cramping is normal. I've actually got my pants unzipped because I think the pressure of my pants was making the cramping worse. It's relatively mild cramping. No blood. Quite distressing though. I'm going home to POAS (or two). Why didn't someone tell me not to Google anything bad about early pregnancy? I think I'm extra paranoid because I've never made it this far and I'm terrified of losing this pregnancy.
Very normal. In fact, all through the next 9 months you will have AF type cramps and symptoms and think AF will be there any second. Its normal!
Beta #2 was 271. Doubling time at this point is 27 hours. I've read that it is normal to start with doubling every day and then slow, but I wasn't expecting MY numbers to do that! I'm so happy to see my body doing what it was meant to do...finally. We set a date for our first ultrasound (12/22/09). Hopefully, we'll hear a heartbeat for Christmas. How cool would that be? I'm not even going to let myself think of the alternative. I'm enjoying being pregnant. I'm even starting to think that we should give some thought to names. I've never allowed myself to even think of what I would name a baby. I have no clue. I'll probably be one of those women who head to the hospital to give birth without a name in mind.
Hi i got pregnant on my second IVF, the first one resulted in a miscarriage. My husband and I have been married for 8 years and TTC for 8. I am now 20 weeks pregnant with triplet girls. We are so excited although i have been very sick. I am having better days but still have some bad ones. This was a long journey but so worth it!
