Hi gals: I'm experiencing some cramping today. Much like I might experience before AF is due and in the same location. How much do you think is okay or is more about whether it's accompanied by blood of any type?

 

Thanks,

Krista

 Krista,  I can share with you my experience of a chemical and of a pregnancy that stuck.  With both I had spotting.  With the chemical I had no cramping but spotting for several days before my period started and I could watch the preggo test lines get lighter and lighter.  With the pregnancy that stuck I had  cramping, bad enough to wake me up in the middle of the night!  But I also watched the tests grow darker and darker and the spotting got lighter and stopped by the time I had a blood test.  Don't know if that helps any?   Hang in there!

Krista, I had lots of cramping at the beginning with my successful/uneventful pregnancy - much like AF was going to start. I was told it was a good thing...little one getting cozy ;) Try not to stress about it and enjoy being pregnant (easier said than done but try nonetheless!).

Thank you for taking over and updating the thread, Gumshoe! 

 

Welcome & congrats, Krista!

 

AFM- The snow here is never ending. I went from thinking I'd have the week to tie up loose ends at work, to finding out I would only have two days with the induction plans, and now with the snow, I think the 2 hours my office was open this morning was all I'll have. Hoping to get an hour or so in Thurs so I don't have to worry while I'm out.

Thanks, guys. You make me feel a lot better. The cramps I have are not accompanied by any spotting or bleeding so I will continue to draw deep breaths and draw upon the great wisdom of this group! Here I come Beta #2!

Welcome, Krista! joy.gif Congratulations!  I also had significant cramping--honestly, it was on and off for a few weeks--I still had them at 7 weeks (ie, 3 weeks after the bfp).  I still get them if I get up too fast or sneeze or cough too hard.  But I've had no spotting or bleeding at all and don't worry about the cramping.  At your point, the embryo is digging into your uterine lining, so it makes sense to have cramping.  My NP did tell me to drink plenty of water to help with the cramping and because blood volume starts jumping up immediately. 

 

Burg: best laid plans, right? I hope your one hour on Thursday is enough to lay your mind at rest so you can focus on the birth!  Any improvement for your friend's babe? 

 

Thanks for the new thread, Gumshoe!

Burg - I'm sorry that you're not getting as much office time as you need before you depart on mat leave greensad.gif.  That must be really frustrating.  I hope you find some way to get a bit of joy from the unexpected snow day.

 

Krista - Here's to thinking positive that everything will be okay thumb.gif

 

Hope everyone is enjoying the reprieve from this lovely winter weather.  As a Canadian, who lives in a snow belt, this is par for the course.  We're going to start to get snow tomorrow afternoon. City driving should be okay - we don't close or call in sick for a foot of snow.  I think the only time things remotely slowed down was two winters ago when we had about 2-3 feet of snow in a 48 hour period.  Then they just told us to stay off the roads so they could plow orngbiggrin.gif, and of course, it was a weekend.  We've had virtually no snow this year, I'd say less than 5 feet.  In a typical season, we get 75-100 feet (please note, I did convert the cms to inches for my American friends!)

 

AFU, my SIL is in town and she wants to be an OBGYN.  She's a 4th year med student and she's currently doing a cross country tour trying to match in a 5-year residency program.  As far as OBGYNs go, I think she'll be pretty crunchy and as about as left as you can get. She saw her first natural childbirth while on an elective here in December and it was really powerful for her - she's even gone from saying "give me an epi right away" to "I'd like to try natural child birth."

 

My SIL had me lie down to see if she could feel the position of the baby.  For the record, she's head down at 31w5d love.gif.  I don't really know how you tell a head from a butt, but when she positioned her hands by the baby's head, I definitely got kicked above the belly button line!  It won't be long now wee one, so please stay put!!

Krista - I'll echo what everyone else said. I was crampy for a few weeks, I think. Not all day, but definitely every day. I held my breath those first few weeks and was on the constant lookout for any sign of blood (and was even afraid to sneeze!), hoping everything was okay. By the time nausea kicked in around week 8, I was feeling much more secure. Now, at 14.5 weeks, I still feel the occasional twinge or cramp or tug, but I figure it's just the little one stretching things out to make a little more space to grow into. So happy to have you here on this board - congrats again!

 

Burg - good luck with your upcoming birth! I hope it goes smoothly, and that little one is in your arms soon. 

 

Am I the only one on the board who's not facing a snow day tomorrow? Portland's enjoying a sunny and clear week - temps in the high 40s. It's supposed to be 57 on Friday!

Hello from Snow Day number two!  DP and I are wrapped in our cozy fleece and chillin' on our laptops~ I honestly don't care if we're off work all week! The other teachers were moaning about how long the school year's going to be with all the makeup days, but I said that I don't care since I won't have to make them up!  

 

Krista~ How are you feeling? I'm glad everyone's giving you good tips about their crampiness. I don't think I had anything quite that bad, but I certainly had plenty of twinges and pinches and ouches for the whole first tri.  When will they do your second beta?  That will be really reassuring.  And pretty soon you'll be hearing the heartbeat!!!  We have an ultrasound pic of the baby at 6 weeks and it's seriously a grey speck within a larger grey splotch, but it was still so nice to see. I'm still so excited for you!!!

 

AHope~ Stay snug! The wind's blowing 50 mph here too and there's really nothing to do but just stay in and be safe and warm.

 

Gumshoe~ I know you tough Canucks take all this in stride, but for we of delicate Southern sensibilities freak out if it even gets frosty.  However, I've hidden in the basement during a tornado warning, then joined friends for dinner later that night, so we're tough in our own way too winky.gif  I do appreciate the metric conversion, though! I'm good with Fahrenheit/Centigrade and pounds/kilos, but the length measures escape me. 

 

Amy~ Enjoy your sunshine!!  It doesn't snow much where you are, eh? I have friends that live there and I know it rains a bunch but that's mostly it. Still, I've heard nothing but wonderfulness about the city. I hope to visit someday. 

 

 

Hmmm, wonder what I'll do now?  Maybe it's time for a movie.

I was very much looking forward to taking a snow day today.  Not because it's *that* snowy, but just so I could have a day to hang out with the kids and possibly paint the nursery.  The work drama of the past month wrapped up last night - I got laid off, then not-laid off, and now they're paying my legal fees.  What a stress reliever.

 

Then, my dog got sick and died.  I'm absolutely heartbroken.  It was quick and he didn't suffer and DW and I were with him at the vet's when it happened.  He was fine when we got up at 6:30 am and by 9:00 am he was dead. We don't really know why - perhaps a liver mass or a spleen bursting - but we didn't even get through the diagnostic before he passed away.  It was very unexpected.  He was my best friend and this totally sucks.  Rest in peace my dear Gus.

 

Universe, just in case you're listening to me, I'm really at my limit and don't think I can take much more.  So please don't push me.

Hi guys: It still feels so strange to check in on this board instead of my other home! But I'm really glad to be here.

 

Thanks for asking about me and for sending reassuring thoughts. I'm still in slight panic mode and just trying not to be. As you know, it is so hard to be...especially after how long each of us have tried to get pregnant before actually seeing that BFP! I made the mistake of temping this morning and seeing a .3 drop made me FREAK OUT and I was positive I was going to miscarry. But I have no spotting or blood and the cramps aren't really happening today. I made DP hide the thermometer because I read online that it's just a good idea to STOP because it only stresses you out.

 

My second beta is tomorrow and obviously, that's the number and indication we want to be focused on, so I try to remain positive and focused on that!

 

Sorry to all who are dealing with snow. We in California are a bunch of whiners and could seriously not handle it...even if it meant a snow day from work!

Gumshoe: So, so sorry about Gus.  That kind of loss is wrenching enough, but to have it happen so suddenly--terrible.  Big hugs. grouphug.gif

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and virtual hugs.  Gus was more than a fur-baby.  He was *totally* my kid.  DW and I had been a couple for a year, and we got Gus two weeks before we moved in together.  It would have been 7 years this month.  He has been an integral part of our relationship and couple story.  I miss him horribly.  Today is better than yesterday and I'm crying a lot less (I'm sure that the pregnancy hormones are not assisting me at all in this area).  Tonight will be hard because DW had to go out of town for work and Gus is who I snuggled with in her absence.  DW put one of his stuffed animals in our bed for me.  I'm not working today, but just getting stuff done around the house, mostly in the nursery.


DW and I are moms to two teens (DD 17 and DS 15) adopted through CAS in 2007 and a toddler (DD 2) born at home in March 2011.

Gumshoe- I can't imagine, I feel the same way about our dog- she is like our child. ::hugs:: 

 

AFM- heading to the hospital in a few hours! I am a mix of excitement for meeting the baby and a little bit of nervousness at the process but trying to just focus on the excitement that we will be holding our baby sometime in the very near future. Thank you all for the support of this community over the past year, you all rock and it is so exciting to be sharing the big day with other queer mamas & TTCers! stillheart.gif Yup, I am mushy today!
