congratulations!!! i know we’re baby twins 😉 so i thought i’d now share on your post – i’ve been having cramping on and off pretty consistently since my af was due…probably about 20-30% of the day as well. they’ve been mild, and no spotting, but definitely noticeable at times. i’ve read that it’s likely your uterus expanding so i’m not too worried. i won’t mind when it eases up though 🙂

I had a really good book during pregnancy, it went through all the pre-ttc stuff, conception, 1st, 2nd & 3rd trimesters and neo-natal care (what to eat, what not to eat, exercises to do that can help with labour, how to identify signs of “baby blues” or post partum, ideas for what to put in your hospital bag, how to identify jaundice, as well as a really unbias look at BFing and formula feeding, basically everything under the sun) but it was a book from B.C. Health Ministry, so I am not sure about its availability.

Yay, congrats!!! And yes, I did experience some mild cramping like you, so I wouldn’t be too worried. 🙂

Congrats @sand dollar! I too just found out that I was pregnant and am due the same week in August as you!! We haven’t told anyone yet…We’re gonna tell my family this weekend because we’ll be celebrating X-mas with them so we’ll be able to tell them in person. We’ll do the same thing with his family on X-mas day. I want to wait to tell anyone else until after our first ultrasound when we hear a heart beat. We were not trying at all so this was kind of a surprise. I definitely was not behaving as if I was pregnant (just had my 30th b-day so there has been some celebration)! So that all makes me really nervous…You’ll have to share what you learn and vice versa!! Congrats again!

I totally had cramps, starting really early on- OB said not to worry about it unless they were severe and/or accompanied by bleeding.
For pregnancy books, I felt like I kind of knew a lot already about the do’s and don’t’s, so I didn’t read anything right away or buy anything… later on, I just went to the library catalogue and put on hold a few different books on pregnancy and childbirth so I could flip through each and pick out the parts I wanted to read. It’s a nice way to check out different styles before investing in books, if you have a good local library.

Congrats! I had cramping everyday and the nurse said it’s completely normal. She said that it’ll feel like you’re getting your period but it’ll never actually come. As long as there’s no bleeding with the cramps then no worries.
