For about 48 hours I had quite distinctive "period" pains only on my right hand side, it seems to have stopped now and I don't know if this is good or bad lol X

Girls, I always got "period" cramps with my previous (3) pregnancies!! I think it's perfectly normal! I don't have that yet, but am expecting it any time now! That said, I'm always paranoid, since I miscarried my first!

My IC this morning wasn't darker than yesterday's. I'm wondering if I should do a FRER tomorrow morning (as well as an IC! )!

I'm also wondering if I should stop working. I'm a teacher, and I'm not immune to the 5th disease. In my province, it's routine to stop teaching under those circumstances. BUT this is my first year teaching, and my first teaching job, and I feel almost guilty! And I'm scared of miscarriage, and then what?! Next week is spring break. I think I'll wait until after the break to make up my mind.

Any other working ladies?! Does this pregnancy affect your job?

The prenatal that I take don't have calcium in them so I have to take an extra supplement. I had my beta #1 done today & won't know the results until tomorrow. ARGH!

My docs office won't do reassurance scans, as most insurance companies won't pay. With my daughter, I got scans often because I had issues going on. But if everything was normal, I would have only gotten 3 my whole pregnancy.

Cramps & pulling is normal... just as long as you're not doubled over in the pain!

Luckily, I work from home. But I am active in my son's school & I coach his basketball team & I'm paranoid about germs!

can't say I've heard of 5th disease either But if it's a serious worry then you need to do what you feel is in your best interests, maybe wait until you are past the first 12 weeks

I am a stay at home mum so I've no worries about leaving work, my partner works away a lot though, it gets lonely sometimes, I'm new to this area so don't know anyone to catch anything off

Ladies I'm a bit worried about my tests should they not be getting darker by now? The lines aren't coming straight up and they don't seem to be getting any darker? This is 10dpo up to this mornings 14dpo. How do yours all look?

Elmo mine were like this too. I just stopped testing. It was doing me no favours. You know you are pregnant. Step away from thests, no amount of testing will change anything

I found that mine seemed to take a whole day to dry and look even slightly darker than the last one! Don't fret.

Thanks must admit after looking again now it's dry maybe the latest is slightly darker.

I don't know wether maybe first response have less dye nowadays? It's just worrying me that it takes a while for my result to develop where as in past pregnancies the results would show as the urine moved across the stick!

Think I'm more worried because I found out so early, my period isn't actually due until Friday! But I found out this Saturday just gone. Even though periods another 3 days away, I'm actually 14dpo today which u guess equates to me being 4 weeks pregnant today? Or no? Would you say I'm 4 weeks today based on ovulation or 3+4 based on period? Can't get my head around it! X

I agree they seem to have less dye! Took ages for my lines to shoe but after a couple of hours when they had dried they seemed much darker.

Don't stress honestly xx

Ermmmm I'm not sure I think technically it would go from ovulation if you know for sure 100% when that was. Usually they tell you to use your last period don't they but that doest account for people who ovulate later or earlier etc! Do I have no idea
