Unhappy Early pregnancy cramps- scared

I miscarriaged in January. It was a missed miscarriage so I didn't know it had happened until I went for my first checkup. I am about 6 weeks pregnant and feel very different then I did the first time around. I really didn't have any symptoms the first time. I have read on the internet that it is normal to feel menstrual like cramps for a day or so due to implantation. I have had them for about a week off and on throughout each day. I am terrified that I am going to have another miscarriage. I think I handled the last one ok, but I don't think I am strong enough to do it again. Can anyone give me peace of mind? Are these cramps I am feeling normal? There is no blood accompanied with the cramps.

There are 1,000 variations to normal when it comes to being pregnant since every lady's body adjusts differently.

It's almost impossible not to worry, but all i can say now is to try not to worry.

Drink water, get your rest, eat a healthful diet and stop smoking or drinking if you do that. Creating a healthy home for baby is about all you can do for baby at the moment -- the rest is up to god/nature.

I'm so sorry for your first loss. Many of us here have lost babies. I've lost two myself. It is never easy.

I hope your new baby is just nestling in and the cramps are healthy hormones raging getting your bean to grow.


 
I hope you have a wonderful pregnancy.

I think you should take it as a GOOD sign that you feel differently with this pregnancy! What you're feeling as cramps is probably just your uterus growing and moving into a better position to support the baby. Try to relax, as stress only does harm.

I'm sorry for your loss earlier this year. My sister also had a missed miscarriage in January. She knew something was different because she had no symptoms and felt like a million bucks. All her other pregnancies, she was very sick and had tons of symptoms.

I agree with Sara (Oreo). And you can always call your doctor if something is really bothering you. They want to know if something is going on. I am also about 6 weeks pregnant. Unless the cramps get worse and is accompanied with heavy bleeding, then you probably are just fine. Take a deep breath! We are here for you.

You should come over to the DD boards!

I wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy!
