    Hey ladies,
    My symptoms sort of come and go right now too! Mostly my boobs. They are sore, then not, then tingly, then just my nipples, then not, then....who knows!

    With my last pregnancy my boobs KILLED but I cannot remember how far along I was when it started.... I think approaching 5 weeks they got really bad.

    I am going for bloodwork today!

    To make a pre-natal appt. just call your doctor....they will tell you when they want to see you. From what I remember, I was about 8 weeks last time.

    Prenatal vitamins are VERY important.... I am not sure what oct are but I have been taking a prenatal vitamin once a day since July. the folic acid is the most important part!

    I am back to work today since finding out.... I am hoping for no nausea because I am a teacher..... hopefully I will have it easy.....

    How is everyone else today?

    Special welcome to our new joiners, Terri, Jordan and Stephanie!

    Does 15 group members sound like a good number to your guys? We are getting close to that FAST! I want to keep it small so we can reallly get to know each other and have a nice chat spot to....complain! I find with large groups that topics and questions get lost in the mix! Let me know what you think. If you want like 10 members that is fine too! Just let me know which you would prefer!

    I'm getting cramping and I've been told it's completely normal unless you're bleeding as well, but just double check with your doc/midwife if you're still worried xx

    Will I be able to get an ultrasound to find out for sure how far along I am at my doctor's appointment on June 5th, even though I know my LMP?

    I don't know what country you're in but in the UK you usually see a doc/midwife and 'book your pregnancy in' then you're sent for your scan based on your EDD by LMP. You can always go for a private scan if you're anxious xx

    I live in the US, and my husband is a marine, so I have military insurance, Tricare Prime. But I also have epilepsy, which I'm told makes me a little more risky.

    I had cramping, pulling, stretching, muscle tightness for 5 days straight and it has now lessened quite a bit. I still have it every so often. I don't normally have cramps with af but I'm assuming this is what people are talking about. I've also had some "breath-catching" muscle pulls if I've been bent at the waist too long and stand up or sneezing, anyone else had this?

    Hey Ladies!! Welcome Brittany and Jessica!!

    I have an appointment with my Primary Physician tomorrow morning so I can POAS and have them confirm what I already know ;)

    Once that is done I will call my OB and make that appt, although I know that one won't be for another month or so.

    I have had the pulling/cramping as well. I remember it from my first pregnancy and think it's completely normal. I'm still having some queasiness in the mornings too.

    I am so conflicted about wanting symptoms. I would love to have them to reinforce that I am really pg, but I can't be throwing up, nauseous or feeling sick at my new job just yet. And I always hate to see any kind of blood. I've been spotting on and off for 5 days now. I am bound and determined, this time, though, to not let it drive me crazy. Last time, I sprinted to the ER every time I saw blood. Of course, I got to see Tess and hear her heartbeat at those times, but worrying about the bleeding did me no good.

    I am the same way. With my first pregnancy, every twitch had me worrying. I spotted, fairly heavily, at 6 weeks with my daughter. After 6 hours in the ER and 3 ultrasounds, they sent me home no better off than when I got there.

    I have made the same promise to myself, I am not going to let everything drive me crazy, just try to stay calm and as relaxed as I can!

    I was supposed to start my period today. I know it isn't coming, but part of me is still waiting for it.
