I think I am preggo. I have had many positive pregnancy tests. This is my 3rd pregnancy and I am very nervous because of a previous miscarriage.

My lower uterus has been achy all day, it feels like a fullness or a sort of pressure. I know all about implantation, but that has already happened since I had implantation spotting last week and now positive pregnancy tests.

It is just above the pubic bone area. Is this a normal part of growing a baby. I remember having this discomfort in my last pregnancy that resulted in a miscarriage, so I am not sure if this is normal. I am not cramping like a period, just achy and can definitely feel my uterus.

I had cramps for two weeks straight and my doc said it was totally normal. No issues so far and I'm 9 weeks now.

You could always call your doc and see what he/she has to say.

I was crampy for a long time at the beginning and I understand that is very normal. I think it would be scary to feel if you had had a previous m/c, but it is normal.

Try not to worry! I had tons of cramping early on, just the baby getting nice and comfy in there!

That sounds exactly what I felt like. It's my third pregnancy too, with a miscarriage last time, and I couldn't remember feeling that achy fullness (right around the bladder area) with my son. But I had noticed it all through the pregnancy that didn't make it, and when I felt exactly the same this time, it really was scary! It lasted for weeks and weeks, too, especially when I was lying on my back or riding in the car, for some reason.

But, I'm now 25 weeks pregnant, feeling kicking all the time, and I never even had a bit of spotting this time. So I think the aches can probably be written off as multiple-pregnancy stretching. Try not to worry any more than you have to.

When I got pregnant, I was pretty sure I wasn't because of over a week of the aches you're talking about (which I normally get before I get my period). I even googled "how long can implantation cramping be" and everyone seemed to say just a few days at most. But I am totally preg so I think everyone is just really different!
Wishing the best for you

For those interested, I spoke with my midwife today. She said it is perfectly normal and a good indication of pregnancy.
