I'm 25 & 40+4weeks pregnant with my first child!! Please try not to worry - I had about 2 weeks of period type cramps really early on, not long after I found out I was pregnant and being my first too I really panicked and hated it, convinced it meant something was wrong... I longed for my first scan to know all was okay... I was too told that as long as no bleeding and it is not a really sharp stabbing pain in one side then all is normal - it is just your womb and that stretching ... what really helped me accept it was normal was joining my due month thread on TB as other ladies at my stage of pregnancy were also experiencing the same and with us all in the same boat we could reassure each other is was okay... I have learned throughout this pregnancy that just about any feeling, ache, pain or emotion is totally normal!!! Your body and emotions go through great change and it is quite a journey but now I am waiting for baby to finally make an appearance, all be it a late one, I am really excited and look back at all the emotion and worry I have gone through to get here but know it is going to be totally worth it when I meet baby very soon!!!
Take Care & good luck with your pregnancy... you should join your due month thread for some support from real women going through the same stage as you!
