  • If it feels like gas pain it probably is gas pain. I was worried at the beginning of this pregnancy because I was having gas like pains that I did not have with my daughter. I took some gas reliever and poof....pain gone, turns out this baby just makes me very gassy. Yes you will have more discharge than before pregnancy, gross, but true. I would invest in panty liners....that is what I did when I was pregnant the last time and I will do it this pregnancy too.

  • Okay thank you! I'm just scared because its my first pregnancy. My husband and I tried for over a year and just found out. He is leaving for a year to go over seas and I want this baby to be healthy so he has a beautiful child to come home to!

  • Congrats, and I am sorry he will be gone for a year, I hope you live close to family! It can be very hard, my husband was deployed for most of my last pregnancy. Good luck!!!

  • Sounds normal more than likely u didnt implant that long ago..and implantation can cause pain for a few weeks by what i hear. I still have whitish discharge at 29weeks. Congrats on gettin prggers.....and for ur first..take loads of pics of that belly so he sees the growth!!!
