    Hi Everyone :wave:

    I'm nervously but very happily stepping into Tri 1. I feel very lucky and just can't stop smiling :lol:

    One small question first - I've been getting abdomen cramps and it feels like AF is coming, I've read this is normal unless severe but just wanted to know if any other ladies got this in the first few weeks?

    Also OMG my boobs are killing me but in a sick way it reassures me...just the tummy cramping that is making me nervous.

    hiya xx
    tummy cramping is totally normal especially in your first pregnancy. its all new to your womb, fibres are being made to support your growin womb and to help push baby out in 8 months time.

    jst think of it that every ache is your baby growing xxx

    Just wanted to say hi and welcome to tri 1! Its so exciting making that move from ttc board. :wave:

    And with regards to the cramping, I have been getting them too, but only for that last few days. Just stretching and moving. There's gonna be a lot of funny aches and twinges and they are very likely to be completely normal when a little person takes over your body!

    Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months. xx

    Welcome to tri 1 and congratulations!!

    As for the cramps, its ur uterus stretching. I got them pretty bad in the weeks after I found out. Only the past week or 2 they've started easing off. Although I still get them occasionally.

    Don't worry hun, any questions u have u can ask away. Ull become a pregnancy expert in the next few weeks lol xx

    Thanks Jay :) It's so good to hear other people had it too.

    I should have introduced myself too...My name is Tara*, I'm 26, live in London and this is my first. Hope I'll meet a few ladies to help me along the journey :)

    Also on Christmas day (before I even got a hint) I had a few too many glasses of wine. I've not had anything since and started taking supplements so I hope this is ok...

    xx

    I'm glad i'm not the only person getting these cramps, it's the reason i joined this forum to try and find out what was happening. I'm only 5 weeks but sometimes the pain is aweful, and i only get it every now and then not all the time.

    I'm glad that gave you reassurance Doll, it's all very new so I guess if we're only cramping it's ok. I know if it's severe and you bleed you should go to your GP. It's just a relief to read how common it is and to talk about it.

    I had an almighty cramp yesterday but it felt like a stitch and passed after a few seconds. I'm going to chew the doctor's ear's off when I go and get confirmed. Have you made an appointment yet? xx

    Been having them for about a week and a half or so. Nice to see a bunch of other women have the same thing, makes me feel less paranoid!

    Oh you guys are so lovely, thanks for reassuring me!

    Can anyone recommend a site on what not to eat? I had a glass of aloe vera juice this morning because it's good for the gut etc as I'm constipated (sorry tmi!!). It tastes disgusting but really is good for you and just read that pregnant women should not drink it as it can cause the uterus to contract!!! I really need a what not to do list other than don't drink alcohol! Any suggestions?

    xx

    Hi an congrats Tara! My cramps have been on and off really. Thought they stopped last week but came back yesterday & have them slightly today too. They'll probably come & go the whole pregnancy as your body prepares for birth xx
