    Hello! Welcome to the first tri!! My EDD is 26th April, and right now I have sore boobs... I'm not hungry all the time, in fact the opposite - I can't bear most foods. But I'm sleeping like a trooper. Easily 10 hours at night and a 1-2 hour nap in the day.

    Period type cramps are normal. I had them right from my BFP to a few days ago and now they've subsided.

    CONGRATS once again... have a happy and healthy 9 months.

    Oh yes, i have the sore boobs too.. more sore nipples actually but bbs feel very firm. ever without a bra it looks like im wearing one.

    I have had cramps too.. although i have had a really bad cold for the past 3 days so have kind of forgotten the cramps. Just get the odd cramp here and there.

    :wave: like everyone said, it's all normal :)

    I'm also due 27th April, and have got hugely inflated boobs already, alng with the cramps, and raging hunger!

    Unfortunately I don't have my booking appointment with the MW until 21st September! :hissy: Apparently you have to be close to 10 weeks here before they'll see you...

    hi congrats! you sound very similar to me!! i feel hungry all the time, as in my tummy rumbles a lot as though i should be eating, but then i often get waves of sicky feelings and cant eat, but will then make up for it later on...cant eat too much at once so lots of little snacks throughout day wen not feeling pukey!!
    also my boobs kill, never had pains there when i was due on, but now it kills and my nipples especially, they look like they could kill someone they are that pointy out!! i also had period pains the other day, btu seem to have gone now!! think i am due april 24th, its all a bt complicated but am going to see midwife on thrus....cant wait!!! just gotta tell work, which i am dreading cos they are soooo nosy and dont want to say its the midwife, so will just say an appointment, a personal one if they ask!

    Hi there and congrats! If you're not already, make sure your taking a good prenatal vitamin, you need to get enough folic acid (talk to your doctor about how much you'll need to take).

    If you feel starving already, thats great! Fill up on high-protein and high-calcium foods and have little snacks throughout the day to keep your energy up. When I found out I was pregnant I was starving all the time too - now at 7 weeks I don't feel hungry at all. So when you're hungry - take advantage of it and get the nutrients you and your baby need to grow and be healthy.

    Also, write down any questions you think of from now till your midwife appointment so you don't forget to ask her :)

    Good luck and enjoy your pregnancy!
