Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I have been a lurker for a month or so here, not really contributing as I am still trying to get my head around the lingo!
We have been trying since we got married 6 weeks ago, took a test at 4 weeks as I still hadn't come on my period - though not to surprising as I have been on cerazette for many years - which was negative.
Took another test today as have been having really strong stomach cramps for the last week and it was a BFP! Clearblue says 2-3 weeks pregnant!
Any ideas if these kind of cramps are normal? Also how do I calculate my due date if I don't have a last period date?!

Congratulations, no idea if what you're feeling is normal, the ladies on the 1st Tri thread on BT will definitely know though!

Congratulations! Cramps are quite normal but worth seeing the doctor if they become agonising or you have any bleeding. The GP may well suggest an early scan if you are unsure of dates.

Congratulations - Exactly what Margot said :)!

Thank you, I made a GP appointment this morning before I took the test as the cramps have been quite painful, so will let them know of the pregnancy then!

Hello, and massive congrats to you and your new husband!

Yes cramps are compleytely normal as long as they are not accompanied by bright red blood.

Congratulations! Definitely pop over to the 1st Tri thread, and see you GP

Saw my GP, he estimates 4-5 weeks pregnant so have booked an appointment with the midwife for the end of the month as is better to see them a little early than too late apparently!
He says the stomach cramps are probably just early pregnancy uterus stretching and suchlike but to keep an eye on it.
Told my husband and he has been like an excited child all day!
