I’m so glad everything is alright. I was just about to tell you now normal my doctor said it is. I was having the same kinda cramping (and I’m only 8 wks) and started to worry. Turns out things are a-ok. This too is TMI- but I can’t even think about having sex at this point. I feel so exhausted and nauseous all the time, I’d just be useless. I’m hoping to be like you by 12 weeks!

Glad everything is okay! I too suggest not believing everything you find on the internet. Unless you are having serious bleeding – cramping and nausea are normal.
It’s kind of hard in that early stage because you feel different but not necessarily “pregnant” – hearing the heartbeat & having an ultrasound are a good way to convince your brain that it’s real. 🙂

Ah, I can totally relate. Last night I was taking a bath, not a hot bath, just semi-warm, and I felt some cramps. I. Freaked. Out. LOL, I even had my husband grab my boobs just to make sure they were still hurting (TMI, sorry :)). But I’m glad to hear everything is going well, and I agree with the PP in that I’m jealous you’re at 12 weeks. I’d love to be there. 🙂

My first appt is on Monday to hear the heartbeat, and I feel exactly the same way. Mild cramping, about 30% of the day. Sometimes it’s sharp (I’ve read this is the round ligament stretching, like when I laugh or cough), sometimes it feels dull and achey just like period cramps. And tmi like you, sex is no bueno. The actual sex feels fine, but the second I orgasm it feels like my insides are about to fall out in agony. I just read yesterday in WTEWYE (what to expect when you’re expecting) and it actually mentioned the orgasm pain. I still find myself saying “Well, hopefully when we have the baby in august”, or “If everything goes well…”. My husband doesn’t understand why I can’t be super excited/positive about it, but I’m just so worried. I’d rather take the “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst” approach until I’m out of the woods in the second trimester. Just know you’re not alone!
