Omg you do not know how relieved I am that I am not the only person with mild cramping! My doctor told me that its not normal! I too have sore boobs which I've never ever had before! Am 4 weeks 5 days today. (only found out lastnight and was on the pill!)
Congrats to all of you!
Dont worry I got no joy out of my doctors at all to begin with and I had mild cramps and what i can only describe as pain at times and none of them would ever say anything positive, however after a few weeks it all subsided and now the pains, aches, cramps, blood have all gone away and I feel completely normal and my baby is fine. I found it was actually my midwife who I met at approx 12wks that was excellent she put my mind at rest totally its just a shame you dont see them from the start. My boobs do ache now and then but thats about it and my stomach has shrunk if i eat too much boy do I know about it. But other than that try not to worry however I know exactly where your coming from. The weeks leading up to see the midwife were probably the scariest un-nerving weeks of my life to date.
Our situations are really alike. Spooky! The week i found out I was pregnant I got an interview for an office job. I went to the interview and got through it and at the end told them. I said it was early days but that I wanted to be upfront and honest with them and that I was pregnant. Then I couldnt believe I had a call a week later and they offered me the position. I start on the 15th Oct. I was shocked but honest they have been brilliant and accept that I will be going on maternity leave. They must have just appreciated the honestly. You should be upfront with them because they will respect you for that more. It doesnt seem to be such an issue in this day and age companys seem to accept it. Ha!! You make him clean! Im loving every minute of being pregnant now, I do all the dusting and stuff like that but my OH has to do all the hoovering and has to come shopping with me because I can not possibly risk carrying any heavy bags Ha!!! I say make the most of it!! x
Im nearly 16wks and I have had no sickness whatsoever! and Ive had scan and my babys fine. I had the bleeding about the same time as you however this seemed to be implantation bleeding and has caused no problem whatsoever I had it for a fortnight on and off and sometimes it was heavier than others but just relax as much as you can. Mine stopped eventually, made me panic at the time. But everything is fine now. My midwife said implantation bleeding around the 6 wk mark can be common.
My job interview got cancelled for some reason. I'm actually quite happy about that, although I did really want the job! It has given a bit more time to get used to things since I only found out a few days ago, and was getting quite stressed with interview looming!
Does anyone wait until the recommended 12weeks before they start telling people. Am only 5 but going to tell OH's mum today for various reasons. (One of them being that OH's brother just got his evil GF preggers, which is really bad news for his mum! So we want to get in there first and have a few weeks of them being happy about it before he breaks the news too and sets a bad mood!) Sorry to ramble but running on low energy as lacking sleep! lol.
Still having dull aches and wondering whether I am imagining this! I really hope I am as lucky as you Deborah with the lack of morning sickness!!! Good to see your baby is well!
I've recently found out I was pregnant by doing a home pregnancy test - I wasn't fully convinced so went to the doctors to confirm, however, the doctor said as I had a positive result there was no need for him to do a test and referred me straight on to the relevant persons. I have since done another 4 tests all of which have been positive - I am feeling very nausious and am experiencing slight cramp like pains in my stomach - can anyone tell me if the pains are normal as they are slightly worrying?
Look forward to a response.
I think its hard to say when the right time is to tell people. I mean my OH told everyone at 6 weeks or so round about then and I could have killed him and luckily everything has been fine. But I did feel that people knowing that early on put extra pressure and more worry on to me. I think personally if I ever do this all again I would wait untill I have my first scan and then I would make the big announcement.
I've decided now that we are going to wait until the first scan, after all, stories are always better with pictures!!! Lol!! We told my OH's mum and she screamed for a while before giving me a million hugs! lmao. I wanted to tell her so she can be present at the first scans etc etc. My mum's done it all 4 times before with my nephew/nieces so she won't mind hehe.
Ah Julz I think you have done the right thing. The weeks will fly by anyway so it wont be long till you can tell everybody.
