see, i worry if I'm NOT crampy- feeling bloated/full and slightly pinchy is how i've felt through both previous full term pregnancies- in fact until i started getting nausea it was my only real symptom.
I have been crampy for about a week or so and I agree, when I don't feel any sympotms I seem to get worried about it and wonder is everything is ok in there. I also have been having really bad ligament pain on my right side. My ob said it was perfectly normal but I don't remeber it with my son.
I have also been crampy on and off. If I don't feel appropriately nauseated, I also worry - the ups and downs of early pregnancy! It can be maddening. I always come back to trusting that the right thing will happen and that nature knows what she's doing.
Oh, I'm so glad that this thread is active! I was wondering the same thing myself. We just found out this week that we're pregnant with our first! :
But for the last 3 weeks I've felt bloated ( I seriously feel like I"ve already gained 5lbs!) and super crampy, it didn't bother me at first, just thinking my cycle was funky this month, but once I found out I was expecting I started to worry! But it's all normal?

I'm crampy too, and I was pretty paranoid about it until now. I just found out today, and I guess I'm still waiting to get the rug pulled out from under me. Once I thought about it, I realized that I would have bet good money on getting AF when I was pg with DD.
I have been paranoid too (last month I had an early m/c at 6 weeks) because I've had some cramps this week, but it sounds like it is pretty normal. Thankfully I haven't felt any nausea or anything yet, but I am tearing up at the silliest little things all week long!
