I just found out I'm pregnant..........

the thing is I've been a little worried. I had a miscarriage Nov of last year and was told to wait three months to TTC again. I just took the test on the 17th and it was positive. Already have blood work ordered for tomorrow but can't see doctor until the 30th. I know they will call me in early if somethings in not right. I'm just worried b/c I've been experiencing a lot of cramping. No bleeding, but I don't have the tender breast anymore, and my nausea is not as bad. My question is....Is the cramping normal? When I miscarried I had bleeding and cramping.

  • I had the same situation.. I just had a mc last April, and we found out this past December that we were expecting. I was soo scared because I was very scared it was going to happen again. I had and still have been experience bad crampings. I also bled during my 6-7th weeks of pregnancy.. with the cramping and back pains... But I went into the doctors and we seen the babies heart beating and everything.. I am now 17 weeks pregnant, although I am still scared somewhat.. I am getting a little better! I hope everything works out for you!! Good Luck, and just don't stress yourself out worrying, its not good for you or that little baby!! Congrats!!

  • Period like cramping is very normal duing pregnancy. As long as it's not a stabbing pain & there is no heavy bleeding, I wouldn't worry. Take a deep breath & enjoy being pregnant. Congratulations :]

  • I had cramps that made me think my period was coming for a few days when I first found out I was pregnant, along with spotting about once a week during the first trimester. I'm 36 weeks now, and everything's still fine. :-)

  • the cramps are normal for the uterus is shifting around. Also around your period, we tend to get cramps as well.. I am about 10 weeks and for several weeks, I cramped a lot... I am still carrying the baby as of today. :) LOL.. I still do tend to get cramps. Don't stress too much.

  • I had cramps all the way through my pregnancy its usually just from things moving around because your body it long as it doesnt get to bad or theres no bleeding I think you should be ok!
