    Hi Girls, just wanted to get in touch and see how you guys are all doing! I am 14 weeks now and feeling rather not preggers! It is such a weird time, I saw baba last week and everything was great but I think I am in that stage where morning sickness has gone and I am beginning to feel more normal which I never thought Id say is quiet scary! Also I was wondering if anyone else still gets like a dull period type pain on and off, I have heard that this could be the round ligaments stretching but it feels more constant than that? I am sure if there was a problem they would have picked it up last week? I know I am meant to be in the safer trimester but I still worry myself sick about loosing my little buba, it is such a horrid fear, I just want to be able to enjoy now (although I am feeling a little bit more positive!) I just wanted to get this off my mind and see if any of you wonderful girls are going through what I am going through, lots of hugs to everyone!

    P.S anyone else still a knicker checker STILL! I am driving myself mad and also going through piles of loo roll eeeeek! :hug:

    I still check too hun. I MCed in August so I know how awful it is. So far, so good though! I think it is normal to get crampy pains also. I have gotten them all the way through so far. Not so much in the past few weeks but I still have my days where I feel a cramp or two. Good luck with everything!! :hugs:

    I am sure it's not anything to worry about. I also have been getting cramps in my lower abdomen and top of legs. It does make you worried but I think it's probably just ligaments stretching and your body getting used. But if you feel too worried maybe get it checked out, for your peace of mind!

    I still check too. I also had some period like pains around 14 weeks - I think it is just everything stretching to make room for LO growing so fast.

    I am another knicker-checker - despite having moved to 3rd tri.... I reckon it's become such a habit - it will be hard to break once I am not pg anymore!

    Yep, I check too. I don't think it is a bad thing. You need to know if something changes down there, regardless! IKWYM about not feeling pregnant, though. I felt the same way, but am getting used to it, and it helps that I am starting to "bump out".

    I check every time too - so scared of anything being wrong and think having a m/c previous makes me even more scared.

    I promised myself in first tri that if I got to 2nd tri then I'd stop...but I just can't!!!

    Now promised myself I'll stop in 3rd tri - :rofl::rofl: - that won't happen either!!

    Trust me, it doesnt get any better in 3rd tri :rofl:

    You'll be analysing every bit of toilet paper/pads/knickers, smelling it, making 1000 posts about it and it'll all seem completely normal at that stage! :rofl:

    Hey Hun, all sounds normal to me! Cramps - check, worrying - check, knicker checking - check! hehe. I only said to OH last night that I still can't help but go to the toilet with caution!! I don't think we will ever not worry, it's what mom's do, whether the children are born or not!

    and also, i'm right with you there... how long is 9 months?!?! It's taking ages, get out already!! (but not yet little one lol) x x x
