I am around 2-3 weeks now and I felt pains etc when i first found out. A few really took my breath away, others were just twinges. I keep getting really strong period like pains, Is this normal?

When you say 'strong pains' are they causing you to 'double over' in agony? Cramping pain akin to PMT is normal as your uterus prepares to move & expand BUT if the pain is so extreme it is causing you to bend over clutching your belly then you should probably talk to your Dr about it (it could just be implantation pangs but it is always safest to get checked & be sure). Best wishes.

I wouldn't say they are that strong that I am doubled over, just a very sharp pain that makes you go "Ow, that hurts" Like heavy period pains.
Will I always get pains like this? I'm probably worrying over nothing but this is baby no 1 so I have no clue what to expect or what is normal.

I had some surprisingly sharp pains in the first 12 weeks. Id suffered a miscarriage so was convinced this was another. the pain was bad but short lived, maybe 20 secs or so. Id say if you are getting constant pain and a bleed defo see a doctor but ud be surprised at all the aches and pains that occur in pregnancy. Feel like ive had a different one each week! Just wait till baby starts booting your bladder!x

Just want to say hope you are ok , i hope the pains are nothing to worry about x it scary everything that happens guess we will have to expect that with it being baby no 1 for both of us , i just keep getting scared something will go wrong.
Thinking of you

SB, Thanks for your reply. I do think its probably just twinges. They are more like sharp pains for a second then go. No bleeding etc so I'll see what happens. Still not heard from MW.

Any new from the Midwife ? xx

SB. No nothing. _

I called at 5 and got the number for the community MW team. Spoke to a lovely MW there who said I am likely to be shared care due to existing med conditions and she would take a message for my mw and she would be in touch. She didnt say when and I know they are so busy. All I want is an appointment! even if its 4 weeks away! Apparently they now do home visits for your booking session - they previously did half an hour at Drs surgery and an hour or so at your home but now doing it all at home and sometimes at a weekend too!
I really dont want to pester her but I also feel a bit miffed.

Your not pestering .....you just need some confirmation that's everything is being sorted. I've got my appointment with the Midwife today not sure what's gonna happen little bit nervous and excited at the same time.
Hope you get sorted soon xx

SB. I called the community team again yesterday to be told my MW was on annual leave until Xmas and someone should have taken over her workload and I should get a call whilst she's away.
I am full of a stinking rotten cold and cant take anything for it so feeling like a grizzly bear today
12/12/2013 at 14:16
Bless you having a cold is rubbish at the best of times hope your coping xxx Cant believe how they are treating you its terrible.
I went to see the Midwife today , very routine she took some details asked me some questions took my height weight and blood pressure and sent a form off to request a scan date for twelve weeks , she will call me early Jan to arrange to come and see me when I will be about 10 weeks to take bloods etc. I was a bit shocked how quick and easy it was.
Im still feeling nervous though as it still hasn't really sunk in yet
Hope you feel better soon x
12/12/2013 at 15:09
SB, I'm even walking round now thinking "I am really pregnant" or did I imagine it?!
13/12/2013 at 10:23
Bless , im sure your not imagining it .... it will become real enough soon for both of us .. I still feel the same though not sure when it will sink it ....... my partner keeps telling me to stop worrying everything is fine I just wish I felt a bit more pregnant or had some more proof anything really ................
Hope your cold is a better today xxx
