A lot of cramping and 6 weeks pregnant
I know if I see bleeding I will go to the ER no question. I'll write an update if anything negative or positive happens.
Hi, I just thought I would give some more words of encouragement. I hope things continue to stay positive for you! I had pretty solid cramping for the first two to three months with each of my pregnancies. My first MW said that it was probably round ligament pain, and I still don't know if that makes sense or not...but everything worked out okay with my first and I am 18 weeks along in my second. My cramps were exactly comparable to my menstrual cramps, and in fact I just kept waiting for AF to appear because I didn't know I was pregnant! I didn't have bleeding with my first, but I DID bleed with this pregnancy. The bleeding for me did not happen with the cramps, it was a separate issue, so FYI, that can be normal too. If you are having the cramping and bleeding together, you may want to seek help though, although I did have a friend who thought she miscarried, but she still had a baby in there - the twin survived, so ask for an ultrasound if you do seek help. Good luck! The first trimester is HARD both physically and emotionally.
I had some cramping early in this pregnancy and so far so good - heartbeat and all.
I also was VERY crampy and had some cervical cramping before and during my miscarriage. The cramping started a few days before I started bleeding in my case. But, the chances are very good that this won't be the case for you. First trimester can be so nerve-wracking.
Well, I said I would post news good or bad....so I made it to my 9 week ultrasound yesterday I'm so happy. The baby is healthy...ultrasound confirmed the growth is right on track and so did the Hcg levels. Now I can finally plan an announcement lunch/dinner to the family! It has been hard the past few weeks, seems like they took an eternity to pass. The cramping has subsided but the nauseousness hasn't, which I hear is a good thing! So I feel a lot more confident and look forward to having another healthy baby in 7 months
Thank you to all you that responded and helped me keep a cool head. Thank you for sharing your stories.
So glad to hear your U/S went well! The 1st trimester is soooooo hard!
I thought I'd chime in, I'm 8 weeks pregnant, and have also been experiencing the same cramping!!! I've been to my doctor within the last week though, and ultrasound showed everything was fine, heartbeat and all! I've heard that these cramps are from your uterus stretching and growing though, so it seems to be normal. Good luck with your pregnancy!
