    Hey all,

    I'm feeling terrible today. All was going fine until this morning when I got a big string of cm. now I'm having AF crampy feelings and feeling dizzy like when I'm on my period :(

    I've got an early reassurance scan on Wednesday and I'm terrified it'll be bad news :(

    I've had no bleeding or spotting and the cramps are more uncomfortable than painful but it just feels all wrong...

    Is this normal? And advice??
    Xx

    Dizziness is a pregnancy symptom. I often get dizzy standing too long or getting up too fast. Your blood pressure is lower I believe during pregnancy which can cause the dizziness.

    If the cramps are just uncomfortable try to relax a little and not worry. Cramps are often associated with your growing uterus as it makes room for a very fast growing baby.

    I feel dizzy most of the time, especially when I stand up!! It can be caused by low blood pressure but shouldn't mean there is anything wrong.

    As for the cramps, I've been seen twice with mine - I can end up literally doubled over when I move. According to the midwife it is round ligament pain as my (abnormally huge) bump is now pushing over my pelvic bones.

    Good luck!!
