I am VERY early in my second pg (just found out on Thursday) and these pains are making me so freaked out. They're not overly painful, they just feel like strong pre-AF cramps. I notice them in my back, on the sides and down in the center of my abdomen. They seem like they're a little more numerous and frequent than they were when I was pg with dd. Anyone else notice this with their 2nd or more pregnancies?

I talked to my midwife and he told me that he's (yes, a man)found that the cramps/pinches are expected to be more numerous and stronger with 2nd and later pg's. So, I figured I'd ask you ladies to hear what you all had to say, plus, maybe it'll put my mind at ease (I hope).

Thanks!

another thing.....did/does anyone else notice that their jeans got snug way earlier or do I have some serious bloat going on? :LOL

First of all, Jessica, CONGRATS!!! I just found out yesterday that I am pg! I have also been having the crampy, pinchy feelings. I had them with dd too. Actually that has been my first sign that I am pg with this pregnancy and my last. I do think they are more frequent this time. I've also heard that the afterpains post-partum are worse with the second. That really sucks because I had them bad with dd! Oh well, that's a long way off! Anyway, good luck with this pregnancy and if you haven't already, join the June mamas' thread!

i just found out i'm preg too. i still don't feel convinced, but sure enough there were two lines on the ept test. i think i don't feel convinced because the second line was so faint.

anyway, i too have been having the cramping pinching sensations. i had some cramping with my first pregnancy, and yes, it seems more frequent this time. in fact, i thought for sure i was going to have my period because it felt so much like period cramps.

congrats to us all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've had way more crampy/pinching stuff going on that the last time. I started getting it just days after I ovulated, it was my first sense that I might be pregnant. I get lots of round ligament pain, I thought they'd be good and stretchy this time, but I guess not. Just remember that it's all normal, I used to say the baby was stretching
That made me feel better.
