Back to the original thread...


This is a continuation of This thread which will be closed due to it's length.

It's a thread that came from the very different needs of early pregnancy and is the springboard for the main MSE pregnancy thread here...

I've taken some of the thread 'starters' from the main thread including the be careful notice below... Please let me know if there's more that should be on this opening post. ps thanks to Courgette for starting the original thread.

Ladies also please remember the following rules

  • Oh no, I am not feeling terribly optimistic. I had what felt like period pains last night, and this evening I am getting some really sharp pains quite low down.

    Still, I can only wait and see.

    Fingers crossed for a sticky bean x

    Big hugs anyname I'm sorry you feel so worried but really hoping its just stretching pains or trapped wind. I've had some similar pains and it seems so have a lot of others on here. I know I haven't been through as many mc as you but I do understand the constant need to knicker twitch and worry about every niggle and pain. I sincerely hope that this is your forever baby xx
  • Hi all. Hope everyone is ok.
    Hugs to Anyname, fingers crossed it is sticky and it's just stretching pains.
    AFM as of this evening I have had the feeling I am about to get my period and have started spotting/bleeding. I will call my midwife in the morning. I had a feeling this wouldn't end well due to my complete lack of symptoms but it doesn't make it any easier to deal with. I don't want to drag the thread down but I had to 'tell' someone as we have kept this pregnancy quiet. Unfortunately if this does now end as expected I wont be trying again. I am currently 11+5 and I am scared as to what may happen next.
    Lots of love to all. X
  • Hugs girls.
    Hope its nothing serious & everything is ok with you both.
    Keep us posted & take it easy xx

  • oh claretsgirl, sorry to hear your worries, I am not sure as I have only been on this thread for a week, but have you had a scan yet? Some women don't experience the common symptoms at all during pregnancy, and again some women do have bleeding during a healthy pregnancy, so please don't panic. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. Please let us know what your midwife says tomorrow.

    I have gone to bed. After a big turkey dinner (christmas dinner with OH dad) I had to change out of the jeans I have been wearing since yesterday and I realised they are actually quite tight around the waistband. We have been eating cooked breakfasts all week! But the pains have been a lot less since I changed, so hopefully I was just squeezing myself a bit, along with a bit of trapped wind.

    I do feel absolutely exhausted though. We had a 17 hour journey up here in Saturday, and I have been running around doing all the cooking etc, including a Christmas dinner today, so I might have overdone it a bit! And my boobs are so sore it's just not funny!
  • claretsgirl - huge hugs first off! To try and ease your mind a bit, I had a bleed (as in a fairly large gush) at 6 weeks, and spotting at 9 and 11 weeks. Had a scan at 13 weeks, everything was fine and now I'm 16+2 and I've been feeling baby move for about a week and a half. I hope that everything works out well for you and I'll be thinking of you tomorrow.

    How bad is the bleeding?

    You can always just go to A&E in the morning and they'll be able to send you to the appropriate dept in the hospital, Id imagine theyd get you a scan.

    When I had bleeding I found this much more useful as tbh the midwife cant really confirm anything for you. I text mine, and she said just let her know if I needed help with anything.
