Having lot's of cramps the last day or so... is anyone else experiencing this? I keep reading that it can be normal, but it still makes me anxious! No spotting or anything... just feels like menstrual cramps.
Any second or 3rd time mama's with a little wisdom for a first timer??
I had a good day Had an u/s (I'm 5w5d) and the tech started with the abdominal u/s, pointed out to me what she thought could be the fetal pole, sac, and she even thought she saw a hb. So she then did transvaginal u/s and yep, there it was! I didn't realize how sure I was that we wouldn't see anything. I was dumbfounded. hb was 115 bpm, which she said was good. As baby grows, hb increases to 120-180bpm then slows before delivery. Baby measured 5w6d.: So there it is.
: to us all
