    Just wondering whether anyone else is getting period type feelings? I haven't got cramping or that really strong period pain that I would normally associate with that time of the month and it's not constant, but I keep getting these vague really dull feelings like I'm about to come on...

    I'm around 6 weeks although could be earlier as scan only showed 5wks.

    i got them really bad with my first pregnancy, its just everything stretching and loosening up it normally goes after 12 weeks or so ,but can make you nervous when it first happens.

    phew!!!!! Thanks! The weird thing is that the Dr said that cos of these feelings I am likely to mc in the next couple of days but I really don't feel like I am - maybe I didn't explain properly that they weren't like proper period pains...

    Mine have mostly gone away in the last few weeks but I still get crampy feelings when I have too pee really bad. I think it's mostly just any pressure that causes it.

    i had this constantly for the first 6-7 weeks - providing it's just a dull ache rather than full on "can't get out of bed" cramps, everything should be fine... it's just your insides stretching and moving around to make room for a nicely growing bub!
