  • you will have pain and discomfort as your body adjusts to the growing uterus and it usually goes away but there are growing pains...just remember your body is doing something it not done before and needs to adjust to a growing baby

  • pain and discomfort is normal..even on one side UNLESS its absolutely excuriating and u cant move or breath.. but if its just slight cramping..normal..its just ur body growning as ur uterus grows..

    as for the dog smelling u..its just the extra fluid and ur dog can sense that..jut push him away!!!

  • Cramping can be normal for some women. As long as you aren't spotting with cramping, you should be fine. You really won't know if it's etopic until your ob does a physical.

  • Slight cramping can be ok, if you start bleeding as well or it's gets bad enough that you are doubled over then it's time to go to the doctor. At this point there are a lot of hormonal changes going on and more than likely that's all that's going on with the cramps, and also the hormonal changes are what is making your dog more interested in smelling your crotch. You smell different to her now, that's all.

  • oh yeah I remember when I was pregnant, your uterus and stoamch and mucles are all getting bigger and stretching so it hurtsss but, if youre worried, just go in early to your doctor. thats what i would do. or call the nurses line and ask

  • The not being able to sleep well, for me, was my nerves. I was overly tired ALL the time but yet my nerves kept me up sleepless nights because of the worrying and endless questions I had. When my uterus was growing in the beginning of both my pregnancies I usually only had pain on my right side. It hurt pretty bad but with both of children, it did get better a little closer to my second trimester. Good luck, hun and CONGRAT'S!!!
