    Hey girlies, just a quick query. I'm 6+5 I'm feeling a bit crampy this evening, is it normal to get cramps now? I think I've read it's just everything growing. They aren't painful by any stretch of the imagination but it's noticeable. Anyone else still get cramps xx

    Thanks Hun, I was pretty sure it was but I like the reassurance of other people having experienced it xxx

    Haha tri 1 is the worst - I found I relaxed a bit more in tri 2 last time. Feel like I'm wishing the time away at the moment as just want to get to dating scan point!
    And Google doesn't help... Xxx

    No I totally agree with you, I want the second trimester to hurry up, every day that passes it's like a little victory and it goes so slowly!!! Google definitely doesn't help, the amount of conflicting things I've read, I'm a nurse I should know better but I still google everything. Bad girl I know but this trimester is so worrying. I never considered this amount of stress and worry when we were ttc, I just thought I'd get pregnant and it would be wonderful. I mean it is don't get me wrong I'm so grateful to be pregnant but the worry and the anxiety I never accounted for xxx

    I had terrible cramping with my son on and off until he was born. Some were as bad to take painkillers!

    I thought the same. Don't think you ever relax about it - ttc is stressful, pg is stressful and then you have them and the stress continues haha! Very worth it though.

    Haha I've definitely got COPS- I'll have to tell my DH that. My cramps come and go now every few days, I presume it's things growing so I look at them as a good sign x
