Yeah it could be gas. It could be stretching pains. It is probably just fine. I feel it in my an muscles, my hip bones sometimes... So it's not just my uterus area which makes me hope it's just my body preparing to stretch. I'm only 5'2".. Petite build so maybe I just have to extra stretch? Idk. The things we try to convince ourselves of hahahahah.

Yeah google really proves to be a foe more than a friend in most situations. Better to stay away until you know what's going on for sure. If it makes you feel any better it took awhile for my test line to be way darker than the control line. At least until I was 6-7 weeks pregnant. I really do have faith in you, and thank you for having faith in me.

Actually that does make me feel loads better! Thank you for sharing that tidbit. I have a group of newly preggo moms on facebook and all of them have really high betas, tons of symptoms, and really dark lines. It's making me feel like something is wrong.

Hi Red, good to hear from you again -- you can always repeat yourself if something is making you crazy! I'm so sorry for the limbo, we're here with you and really hoping that everything is fine. I've never had my levels checked, but from others on here it sounds like there's a pretty broad range of what's normal for various dpo, and even a range of acceptable doubling time. I really hope that's you! Stay away from the threads that make you crazy.

Rayray -- thanks for the mention, 14 weeks is so exciting! Even at 12ish it felt a little weird to tell people even though I have had 2 scans and everything looks good, but I'm feeling more and more confident. Symptoms are still there but manageable -- having to pee a lot, fatigue, stretching pains...the worst is headaches, but I know compared to others I'm very lucky, practically no nausea or actual sickness the whole time. 2 or 3 weeks until my next appointment, but for once I'm feeling relaxed! Imagine that.

Also it sounds like your pinching/stretching is feeling more normal -- it's still scary, but hopefully you're feeling better about it. At this point I would still call the doctor when you get a chance, but more just to ask the question -- what would be abnormal and should make me worry? I'm feeling good about what you're describing!

Hope you're all enjoying a nice weekend!

Thank you for the confidence anchor and red. I appreciate it. Glad to know you're doing well and starting to feel more confident about your pregnancy anchor. (We will get there red...!!!!)

It turns out you were both totally right. What I've been feeling is normal. My sonoline B Doppler came in the mail last night (perfect timing, I have an extremely graphic miscarriage dream night before last) and DH and I were able to find the baby's heartbeat in 15 minutes... We found it at 144 BPM.. Then I starting crying and laughing and moving so it dropped. It was magical.

Yay! That's good to hear. My U/S is Thursday. If I don't have a panic attack before then I'll be surprised.

Rayray, that's amazing! I wish I had a doppler, maybe I'll try to get one in the States and bring it over here for next time (stuff like that is insanely expensive and/or impossible to find here). I'm so happy for you.

Red, that must seem like an eternity to wait still, but it is soon. We're holding our breath with you! What time is the appointment?

I was very excited on Sunday to hit 180 days left -- 100 days gone! Obviously that includes the first 25 or so days before I knew I was pregnant, but still a fun milestone.
