Last night I woke up in 2am with horrible stomach pain! It didn't feel like cramps and I am hoping its not. It might be gas pain or constipation (it's been a few days...). I am about 5 weeks along.
Is it normal to be in such pain that you wake up? Is having constipation/gas pain normal? My stomach is constantly in knots/tight/growling.....this is my first so I am concerned! Also, is there anything to make it better?
I'm having exactly the same thing I don't remember it with my first but it was a few years ago so I might just have forgotten . I've read drinking lots helps with the cramps and mine have eased a little but not enough for them to still be annoying !
I was so bloated and crampy for weeks, until about 7 or 8 weeks. Was in constant panic there was something wrong. But after (sorry TMI) er..... Trumping.....and going to the loo it felt so much better, but its return everyday.
I was actually looking to ask the same question! I have had horrible stomach pains (thinking it bowel movements or gas) that come and go. Has me worried and I'm trying not to stress myself out as its never good to stress. I'm about 4 weeks 5 days.
I am 5+1 and I get horrible cramps early in the morning. After the cramps, I tend to (TMI) release gas but there is still pressure after doing that. When I officially wake up for the day, I have to rush to the bathroom. It has been like this for a week now.
Oh my gosh, I feel so much better! Just reading your guys' responses makes my stomach feel better already haha
So yah so all the TMI people, I had the same thing....went to the loo (I'm not British but sounds so much better) and it helped my stomach quite a bit. But because i was trying so hard I starting spotting a tiny bit. brown. So I freaked and called my doctor. He scheduled me for blood work and an ultrasound tomorrow. And he usually gives me the results within 2-3 hours. So I hope everything is fine! But I am so glad that it seems to be a normal symptom!!! Thanks so much!!!
Vegas and Aiden....you guys are much farther along than me. Did you guys have these cramps for a while? Like since you found out you were pregnant? Did it make you worry? Having cramps like I'm about to get my period is freaking me out!!! Not to mention sooo uncomfortable! I really can't stop running to the bathroom every 20 minutes to make sure there is nothing there!! Also, my back is having shooting pain every once and a while.....this seems like a symptom I should get way later on no?!
Sorry I am such a stress ball today! Just need to see my doctor tomorrow Although I have a feeling its going to 7 more weeks of this until I'm out of the first trimester!
