4 weeks pregnant...general worries

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So I think I am just extra cautious because of my loss last month but today, I felt a little cramping and I just feel like I have a "period" like smell when I pee (sorry if that sounds gross). I keep expecting blood.  It sucks.  I am trying to remain calm but I admit it is hard.  I keep feeling a constant like dripping of fluid internally but nothing is really there when I wipe.  I know there is nothing I can do but wait.  I was so calm and relaxed with my daughter's pregnancy--this is so different!

Thanks for letting me vent.  Fingers crossed for a sticky baby!

Totally normal to feel crampy. Just the uterus stretching out to make room for the new addition! I had a fair amount of cramping just before the four week mark.

 

I'm only a little over four weeks as well, and driving myself nuts with worry. I can't wait to be out of this limbo!

Yup, totally normal.  And the constant cervical fluid is also normal.

 

Hopefully the busy holiday time will help distract you a bit from your worrying (which is also normal). winky.gif

This is totally me.  I hate it!  Ugh!  It makes me feel like I have to run to the bathroom to expect something terrible and then there's nothing there.  Ugh. Hopefully this goes away ASAP!

I'm the same way with the increased fluid! I am an obsessive TP checker, and even when I try to stop I still end up checking once or twice a day. I'm glad you haven't had any bleeding. Keep trying to think positive, day by day. I know I am!
