Yup I remember having cramps and stretchy pains for weeks. I think about 8-9 weeks I had a short sharp intense pain on my left side and I thought it was all over and I'd miscarried. But I hadn't. Based on doctor google it was the corpus luteum collapsing and after that I had no more cramps.
Sweetpea, I'm glad it doesn't sound like an ectopic! Even my midwife took a few minutes to find the heartbeat. I was watching her face and she looked just a little worried. But then we heard it. I think I would freak out if I couldn't find it and end up calling my midwife and get really upset all over nothing. I feel like I'll be monitored often enough that I'll be ok. I'm having scans more often and blood thinning injections because I have Lupus. There's a chance that the baby might not grow like it should or that I might have a blood clot and that it enters my placenta and then I could lose the baby.
TTC, you're right. It's nice to know that we are getting the best care. I just wish I wasn't in this position!
I woke up today and my breasts are not sore 😭 After a complete meltdown, I called my clinic and was reassured it's fine especially since I have no bad signs. I am still obviously overly emotional and I was nauseous earlier. I need to calm down. It doesn't help that I'm approaching my last due date.
ttc, mine was also not as sore and sensitive yesterday morning, I started to panic
I went to see my dietitian early in the afternoon and when she took my measurements she told me I am 1.5cm bigger around my breasts - so I felt reassured that something is still happening. They got sore and sensitive again later in the day.
I found that they feel better in the mornings and worse in the evenings.
I have caught a cold so I have an intense headache and snotty nose and throat. Urrgh! This lady at my work have been sick a while, so I was scared I might get it so I stayed away from here...still got it any ways
Thanks Nita! It's hard for me to recall my healthy pregnancies... but looking back I do think my soreness was off and on.
Ah I'm so sorry you caught that cold!!!!! Mine is still lingering I think. Eat soup and rest up ❤
My prenantal Vits is making me sick, if I take them I have a very upset stomach with nausea, if I dont take them I am fine. Urrrgghh I know I should be taking them but this baby doesnt seem to like it very much. My cold is getting better, and luckily I didnt have a fever.
TTC, it's hard when you have a good day or your symptoms just disappear. I had so many days of worrying about that. Then I was having more good days than bad and had talked myself into finding out I'd had a MMC at my 12 week scan. Everything was fine thankfully! Try to remember that symptoms come and go.
Nita, you will probably find that much easier. Can you get iodine too? My midwife said to take that from conception until finished breastfeeding.
Any of you ladies with PCOS know much about breastfeeding? Apparently it can cause problems with milk supply for some women. I really want to exclusively breastfeed so I hope I don't have a problem!
