So, since my BFP, I've had light cramps every day, on and off. Seems they get worse later in the day but really they aren't bad at all, just annoying.

Cramps are okay, right?

And, every time I pee, I check for blood. I'm obsessive! Anyone else do that? At least restroom breaks make me happy since it helps me know I am still pregnant!

Yup - totally normal - just the little bean burrowing in and making a home for himself! More water helps slightly, and you probably get it more at night bc you are tired then (I know I get more crampiness at night too).

I am both crampy and constantly checking for blood. Good to know I'm not alone!

I'm definitely having off and on crampy feelings. I *know* it is just baby settling in and getting cozy, but part of me panics. But then again, part of me panics if I don't feel aches and pains for a while! *sigh*

Yup, my ovaries hurt too!! Guess it's all part of the plan!

I assume I'll be worrying about this child for the rest of my life and this is just practice!!!!

Yep, totally normal. Lots in my lower back which is par for the course with me.

And I remember complaining that my left ovary was going to explode with #2. It's the luteal cyst that stays intact to produce progesterone until the placenta takes over. Ow!

I'm having a lot of cramping, also. I don't usually have preperiod cramps, so it was one of the first hints for both of my pregnancies. I am freaking out about them a little less this time because I remember the cramps I had during my first pregnancy being worse, and I had a perfectly healthy little boy on his EDD.

Student and SAHM to my sweet little boy (2-2009), happily unmarried to my best friend and expecting #2 in April!
