Cramps when i get really upset- 6wks pregnant


That's me. I'm totally normal one second and awful the next. Little irritations will set me off a bit more than they should. I've been trying really hard to keep calm, but I'm a bit worried as when I get upset I start to get cramping. I am sure it's not good, but wouldn't think I'm that stressed that I should be cramping. I'm going to see the doc on Wednesday and will bring it up then, but am wondering if any of you have seen anything, experienced this, know anything. . .

I googled it, and all I came up with was a yahoo post, and everyone told the poor girl:

"I think that when you fight you are putting stress on your baby which can probably cause a miscarriage and you are so early in your pregnancy. If I were you I would try to stop fighting with your boyfriend so that you don't hurt your baby."

Yeah like I want to start irrational fights! I am worried that I'm hurting the baby and could cause a m/c so reading that didn't help.

So girls, am I at a loss until I speak with the doc on Weds?

Try not to worry, cramps are normal in early pg, I hope your doc can reassure you better than 'doctor google' Yahoo answers are a load of b*llocks a lot of the time

Im sure moodswings are also part and parcel of the increasing amount of pg hormones, I can also get very teary one minute and irritable the next

Take care xxx

Thanks. I feel the same way about yahoo and google. I have cramps all the time, but I swear whenever I get really upset the cramps are on both sides, and are there until I settle down. So it's more the cramps that accompany me being upset.

Maybe I'm just tightening all my muscles -- clenching, and it's over straining my muscles.

Yahoo is often cr*p

I will look for the link of where i read it but i was reading on a medical webbie that the only stress etc that can actually effect your baby is the really bad or prolonged kind that makes you ill

Cramps are normal hun so try not to worry...but if your tense you may cramp more i suppose....but i doubt very much that it could cause
you to MC.


Hugs hun xxx

(ooh yer one more thing...alot of the girls in 1st tri tend to find that Googling things is a really bad idea lol xxxx)

yeah I rarely google anything and I agree that yahoo is cr*p, was more sharing the cr*p for all to see as it pissed me off to read it. I know it won't make me m/c, but I do worry it can't mean a good thing.

Do appreciate the reminder that only really bad stress can do long term damage.

scrubgrub..... I know what you mean about irrational fights. I was the same. I worked with a lady who read a book, and it was all about being a better person (not a prego book) ANYWAY..... I guess it said something about 'thinking' leads to stress, and people think WAY to much! She kinda went on about it, and when you think, it leads u to places your mind shouldn't go, and you think of things that aren't even realistic, and so on and so on...... I'm trying the 'Not Thinking' thing! hahaha.... it seems to be working actually, especially with things with my husband. I just don't think!! Not sure if that has helped you at all. But when you really start to think, or stew over something.... just take your mind off of it. Think of something else....
