  • All that u said u have I had too, and my pregnancy was just fine......worrying though is not good for u or ur baby! Best advice I can give u....ENJOY your pregnancy, and don't freak out about things....if ur really concerned about something call ur doc, thats what their there for! You will be just fine!

  • Everything you're talking about is 100% normal. Cramping is just your body accommodating your growing uterus. Dogs, well, they REALLY like to sniff people lol. Not sleeping well is also normal, but that's probably because of stress (because you're worrying about things). Congrats mama :)

  • It could be as simple as round ligament pains. Don't worry...I have the same thing and my baby is just fine :) I am 5 weeks also. If u r super concerned call your doc and see if u can get in earlier. Good luck to you!! And congrats on baby :)

  • The cramping is normal because of everything in there streching to accomidate a little one. Dogs are smart animals. They can smell when things are different. Be careful if you have cats. I had two when I was prego with my first and they loved to bite my nipples if they smelled the colostrum.
