cramping and discharge...


I've been cramping on and off all day today...it feels just the same as menstral cramps and also had a lot of white discharge. I know I'm probably getting worked up over nothing and that this is quite normal esp round about when AF would be due but I have got myself all worked up and keep running to the loo to check that I'm not bleeding. Has anyone else experienced this?


Just need a bit reassurance....

This is VERY common hun... I had mild cramping off and on even before I knew I was prego. Then for weeks after that.. even some sharp pains occasionally. I've seen LOTS of posts about this on BNB and when I asked my doc they said it was a very common complaint in early pregnancy. You'll even have some different pains down there in your 2nd trimester...

I got to the point where I expected the cramping, so when it subsided a great deal THAT made me worry! lol. But ALL is just fine Symptoms will come and go.

This of it this way- it's your body preparing for the growing baby. Which is GOOD I also had very watery discharge for weeks- but then it changed to more pasty (sorry, TMI)- but this is pregnancy girl hehe. Enjoy!!!!

And Congrats!!!!

Thank you for your reply. I know that I am being paranoid. I am just too scared to get excited about this pregnancy and every ache and pain is sending me into a state of panic.

Congratulations back to you!!!!

I know it's hard not to worry hun... but with each passing week and each scan you get that will just ease your mind... it really didn't HIT me HIT me, lol, till we saw the baby moving this week... at first, it was SO surreal... like someone was going to jump out and yell "JUST JOKING" at any moment! lol. Just wait till the sickness or some other pregnancy symptom kicks in... then it becomes more "real" hehe

Best of luck to a H&H 9 mos!!!!

Hiya, i've been getting the exact same thing. Cramping and white discharge. I'm glad i'm not the only one worrying every two minutes about bleeding. I was just in tesco, and had to leave my trolley mid-aisle because i thought i was bleeding, but nothing! It's playing tricks on me.

I'm also having sharp pains tonight, so i'm glad to hear that's normal too. x

I'm 4 weeks one day and have been cramping for several days, with sharp pains on my right side like someone is poking me with a needle.

Naturally I called my midwife straight away, she told me it was normal...

Also had some discharge, feel like af is going to come any second.

Cramping and Discharge...


Hi there - you are not alone. I am about 7 weeks and have been having some cramping and grayish discharge off and on. I am absolutely petrified that something is wrong and am running to the bathroom every five minutes to see if I am bleeding. I am just so scared. I don't see my OB for the first time until next week - it is going to be a loooooong 9 days. Good luck to you. xxoo

Hi guys,

I've been havin some cramping too!! 5wk here!! And more discharge than usual, but mine has a very very pale yellowish tinge. I've been told that's within normal perameters so I'm trying to pay it no heed ....

But you DO feel surprisingly wet at times ... You can almost 'feel' it leaking out !!!

TMI?!

So I'm not shocked by the abandoned trolley story one bit!!!

Also the cramps seem to get worse after a BM??

Go figure ...

I am so relieved to see this thread as the discharge thing combined with cramps is SO worrying. I've had alot which GP said was thrush but panicked at the weekend when it had pinkish bloody streaks in it! After an internal the doctor said it was def thrush symptoms and nothing sinister. It really made me panic though.

EllieNation - I really feel that leaky feeling at time which is awful as you just have to rush to a bathroom and make sure it isn't blood. I even started using liners as there was so much discharge (sorry for awful TMI) but it seems to have calmed down a bit. I still get it now and again but less so.

It is reassuring to know you aren't the only one with this. Good Luck everyone xx
