    Default Growing Pains???

    Hi There,
    Im 6wks 4 days, first time preggers but have had the worst abdominal pains/cramping which leave my abdominal muscles feeling very strained and sore, I saw my GP and my HCG lvls are normal and no spotting so isn't a miscarriage but couldnt tell me anymore? some people have told me it is because im quite small currently going from a size 6-8 but I have not heard of this before... has anyone else had these stretching growing pains and so early on?

    Hey there Natalia,

    congrats on the PG! I have friend who's quite slender, and she had very bad cramping through her first trimester - I don't remember exactly when it started, but I think it was quite similar to you. She was quite worried about it at times, and went to have a scan. Similar to you, she also had no spotting. She's gone on to be absolutely fine (30+ weeks now!), so assumed it was just one of the odd little "joys" of PG!

    All the best for a H&H PG!

    Maybe your body is adjusting to the changes in hormones atm? It is a crazy time for your body, really. Hopefully someone with some professional knowledge will be in soon to talk to you. Congrats on your pregnancy and all the best for a H&H 9 months!

    NATALIA... I still get bad cramping & I'm nearly 19weeks. My friend also had horrific cramping until 12wks. She just managed with a hot water bottle. She's now nursing a beautiful baby boy.... Maybe it's a boy thing.... Good luck.
