Cramping and..

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

A bit concerned here as I woke up today feeling like I had trapped gas around my stomach/abdomen and cramping lower down. I don't know if it was just gas or something more? I have also had diarhhea (sorry tmi) twice now and I still feel crampy and like there could be more to come. I don't know if it's something I ate, or could it be early miscarriage signs? I am 10 weeks this weekend and heard the heartbeat 4 days ago.

My last pregnancy was very anxiety ridden for me as it was following 2 back to back losses. The closest previous one happened at 10 1/2 weeks. So when I got a bout of cramping at 9 weeks, I was a mess! I called my midwife in tears and she had me come in and do a viability ultrasound. It was the only u/s I had the whole pregnancy. But anyway, everything was fine. She said that they are still burrowing deeper (implanting) until around 12 weeks and that cramping was normal. As long as there was no bleeding accompanying the cramping, to try to just relax.

I've used that experience and been a lot more laid back this time around. I still get crampy and have low back aches too, but I just try to rest a bit more.

Hopefully that's all thats going on with you too. Try to relax and take it easy.

I've also been really crampy this time, and I've had diarrhea a few days as well. This pregnancy has been so different than my others, and I'm a lot more worried this time around. I don't have any reassuring news yet, but sometimes it's good to know you're not alone. I'm hoping to hear a heartbeat in a couple of weeks... You've already heard yours though, haven't you. I think it would be really rare for something to happen after you've heard it, especially this late.

Thanks ladies, I think it must have been a virus or something I ate because my son also had a stomach ache too that day. I was fine after a few hours and no bleeding at allĀ :)
