    ?I was thinking the same thing.. Maybe just worry because I've been trying to figure out how to tel l my parents?? Possible? Yup, for now. I havent had my first appointment yet so I'm not 100% sure yet because my last period wasnt normal..

    everyone is different, stretching can start early as you are. I had weird feelings like that and everything is perfectly fine :)

    congrats on your pregnancy :)

    Thank you this is ask so new to me, but not say the same time. My dad is a recovering alcoholic and when me and my brothers were little my parents had joint custody so half of the week I played mommy. My dad couldn't take care of us so I had to. Side then I've always wanted to be a mommy, I just never thought I would be becoming one this soon!

    I also think it would be your uterus stretching. I had sensation around the same time as you and it's pretty normal. A non-pregnant uterus is often smaller than people think- only the size of a plum so it has to stretch early so it can accommodate a baby. It's really nothing to worry about. I had horrible cramps once in the middle of the night at around 6-7 weeks so I thought a miscarriage was imminent. It turned out that it was just my uterus stretching and baby was fine. The pulling sensation is perfectly normal and is only something to worry about if it is accompanied by frequent, moderate to strong period-like cramps. Hope you have a good pregnancy :)

    Yeah, you will be :) It really is the most amazing sight. I saw the heartbeat at nine weeks and I couldn't take my eyes off of it. Don't worry, you haven't had any bleeding so it should all be fine.

    Is it just a registration with the midwife? At mine she sorted out my maternity records and asked if there were any medical conditions such as diabetes in my family or in my OH's family and she checked all my details. She also did a blood test to check my blood type, do a full blood count and check whether I had enough iron in my blood etc and they took my blood pressure. I also had to have a urine test to see whether there's any protein in my urine and I have to have one done at every appointment I go to. Do you know what your blood type is? Because if you're rhesus negative, they'll advise that you have an injection later on in pregnancy if you're baby is rhesus positive, so it's all pretty minor. It is mainly just to explain when all your appointments are going to be and to book your ultrasound. It might be slightly different where you are but a lot of the things they do are going to be the same.

    Oh alright :) I'm B positive. Gosh..I'm going to be super impatient for my ultrasound. I may be farther along than I think though because my last period was irregular. Gosh.. So normally the first ultra sound isaround 10 weeks? Are you in the US?
