    Hey Ladies (TMI) here hahaha

    Last night I thought maybe I was having some period cramping, then I passed some gas, and new I was constipated... I'm a little paranoid :) could it just be gas pains I was feeling?

    Could well be I'm afraid. I really suffered with this last pregnancy and had a little already this time - best advice is drink plenty of water, eat lots of fruit and I swear by Activia Yoghurts here in the UK - not sure if you have them there - they have the 'gut-friendly' bacteria in ;)

    Thanks ladies :)

    I am just so nervous, I had an u/s last week dating me at 6w4d and only a slow heartbeat.. I go in tomorrow for another scan to see how the baby's doing and I'm petrified. I know there is a good chance that I will miscarry so I'm looking for signs constantly. I felt this period like pain last night and thought oh here we go... then I gassed and felt better lol and thought hmmm maybe we're still okay .... can't wait for tomorrow just to know either way.

    I had pains that felt just like my period coming for well over month, but my doctor just basically said it's the uterus stretching making room for baby. I hope that's the case for you and everything looks good tomorrow.
