Yeah, my boobs have been sensitive today a bit. We are thinking about telling everyone tomorrow. I did tell SIL (she's like a sister to me), but she's keeping it hush hush until tomorrow lol.

Someone ease my worries, please.

I woke up from a nap with DD2 about ten minutes ago and have had cramping ever since. I vividly remember cramping in my other pregnancies (and being concerned about it), but I feel like 5 weeks is far too early for my body to be experiencing stretching pains.

No spotting or anything (I'm obsessive about checking ) but it still concerns me.

I think as long as you're not bleeding you will be fine. I have already had round ligament pains and pregnancy cramping, it's a definitive feeling that's completely different from period pains for me. I should add that my past three pregnancies I always had spotting/bleeding that was brownish or pink colored around six or so weeks and it never turned into anything serious.

I have told my father and one of my closer friends, and announced it on facebook as an April Fools joke, so I doubt anyone took it seriously there haha. My husband on the other hand has told everyone he knows.

I had a meltdown this morning and I guess it's a reason to step away from the tests, that I am, in fact, preggo and all is well. I took a First Response Rapid Result and was devastated to find that it was more faint than yesterday's FRER... though it darkened to the same as the control line. Then I realized rapid result are not nearly as sensitive as FRER. I feel better lol. I'd say with being less sensitive, it has to be a good sign that it's as dark as the control line.

To be fair, I do have reason to be concerned about tests not getting darker because last May I was pregnant and the numbers kept rising but EXTREMELY slowly, so it took like 2 weeks to get a line that dark (and I had my blood drawn every two days or so for about a month, the numbers only doubled once). I keep reminding myself that this pregnancy is totally different and much more like my pregnancy with DD in 2013. I am not spotting at all like I was last May (constantly RED spotting), everything is well I'm sure Keep growing little bean, we want you SO badly

Bdb84 Ive always had cramps through pregnancy, it can be worrying but can also be a sign that things are stretching

Iím also having a worrying moment here, Iíve been having shoulder pain and stabbing pains in my ovaries. I called my midwife who has booked me in for an early scan tomorrow to check for ectopic. I am bricking it and thinking the worse as I donít want to get any hopes up xx

Markswife- It is that reason alone that I have to now force myself to only test every 2-3 days. I have taken over 2 dozen IC's and some of them still waver in intensity unless I wait exactly 48 hours. It's so hard not to stress over this.

Lucy- I'll be thinking good thoughts for you! I, too, was convinced yesterday that I was experiencing an ectopic due to my cramps. First trimesters are no joke when it comes to this anxiety most of us are feeling.

Bdb84, yeah I’m a bad testaholic, especially when two lines are showing up lol! I did test again tonight with my IC stash and the lines are showing great progression, so I’d say that’s a win ❤️

Cautiously joining this group at 3w+4. I had two CPs in January and February, but my tests never got darker and now after 3 days they definitely are this time! FX this time I have a sticky little bean. EDD is December 16

Looking forward to getting to know you ladies better!
