Hi all...

 

Is anyone else experiencing mild cramping with no bleeding? It's causing me such anxiety-not to get TMI-ing here, but I cramp and then I have a little bit of fluid, which is always just discharge-but I've never had this before, and I'm worried that this could lead to a miscarriage!

 

Anyone having this?

Yup, mild cramping every day, some clear or white mucus. It's normal.

 

(I do mean mild. not like my period.)

Same here, as well as the the discharge. I've been in the bathroom a lot just to check the color of discharge to make sure I wasn't bleeding.

yep, just got back from the bathroom because I thought maybe I was bleeding....nope, just watery white discharge. I get crampy-stretchiness (yeah, I can make up my own words!) down there too.

Totally normal. I have it now and my husband agrees that I went through the same thing with DD. I remember being so worried last time but this time I am relaxed, par for the course. There are a million changes happening inside us every day..we are bound to feel a little something!

Yes, I am. I always cramp though. In this case I do have an SCH but it hasn't bled yet.

I've had a constant soft cramping pretty much since I conceived.  I seem to have it more this time than with any other pregnancy.  Maybe my uterus is so dang stretched out it's just giving way this time  :)

Cramping here also. 

Rather intense at this exact second.

It switches from gas bubble cramps (which I never get) to sharp twinges to period type cramps. 

If I didn't know better, I would just think I'm getting my period.  And I do remember worrying about this during all my pregnancies.

Glad to know it seems to be normal, because I'm having it too!  I was just googling it this morning.  My cramping comes and goes, usually only a couple days a week.  Maybe it's "growth spurts" of my uterus?

Whew! I'm gonna LOVE this DDC! You ladies ROCK! Soooo happy to have people who understand and are not just "oh yeah, I had that with my last pregnancy"-but are experiencing it at the same time! I've never been a part of a DDC (long term cuz of the losses) so I just wanted to say how awesome this is!

I've been getting pains/cramps along my bikini/pelvic line, especially if I cough, or vomit. It's kind of weird. Not like a menstrual cramp, but more like a pulled groin muscle.

I'm having a lot of cramping too. It's very scary. I just have a hard time being able to relax at all about this pregnancy. I won't be OK til this baby is in my arms, safe & sound.

I was crampy all night last night, and had already resigned myself to seeing blood on my tp at some point. It didn't happen, and today the cramping is gone again. I've had a day like this before, when I was 5 weeks. Odd, and nerve wracking!

I have been mildly freaking all day and was coming to post a similar question. I don't have cramping but I don't remember ever having this much discharge before..I keep expecting to see blood every time I go to the bathroom. I am glad to see that I am not the only one so this must be "normal" and not impending doom! I have been getting that pulled muscle feeling too Corrabelle it is quick but sharp when I cough or sneeze.

Yep, I'm cramping too.  It started midway through my cycle which was yet another sign, in my mind, that I was pregnant.  (I had a feeling I was long before I ever tested!)

 

 

I don't remember it happening this early last time.  Trying hard to remain calm!

Okay, so my cramping has come back yet again at 8w2d.  How long will it keep coming and going???  It freaks me out everytime.  I know it's just "growing pains," logically, but it doesn't keep me from stressing about it.

I just started to get bad cramps today (not period level pain, but period-like in duration). However, I've always bled before I started cramping, so I'm trying to reassure myself that if this were something bad, I'd bleed first. So far, I haven't spotted at all, so my fingers are crossed that everything is still just fine. Baby is just holding on a little TOO tight. smile.gif

I have the same symptoms and it scares me because I had my first miscarriage last January.

I'm 8 weeks pregnant now.

My youngest child is 15 and I don't remember cramps but I was mostly miserable for nine months due to health issue that I know longer have ..

I'm crampy but not miserable. Just worried.
