Two Questions

I found out yesterday that I'm pregnant :o) but now have 2 questions. (1) Is it normal to have a little bit of cramping right now (I'm starting my 5th week) and (2) I get my hair highlighted. Can I do that now that I'm pregnant??

Hi Amy, I do believe that you can get your hair higlighted still. I think I read somewhere that the first 8 weeks the baby doesn't absorb anything from you yet as the placenta isn't formed. Don't quote me on that, but I'm pretty sure it's safe. And for the cramping, yes it's normal, as long as it's not unbearable. You will get cramps now as your tenions and uterus are starting to stretch. Hope all goes well and keep us posted.

Hi Amy - Congrats!! Cramping is completely normal so long as it doesn't come with bleeding - remember, you have a baby growing in there!! And your hair can be highlighted, but they recommend that you are in a well ventilated area so you don't breath too much stuff in. Hope that helps!!

Thank you Tanya and Missy! I will keep you posted about everything :o) Tomorrow is my first doctors appointment where it's confirmed that I'm actually pregnant!! I've taken two tests and am 5 days late for my AF, but it still seems to good to be true! I think I'll feel better tomorrow.

I guess I shouldn't be reading about the bad things in this forum, but I have another question. Even though I'm not really experiencing many pregnancy symptoms, that doesn't mean I'll miscarry right?? I'm so scared right now!

I would only worry if you have severe cramping or bleeding. Spotting is ok and normal of implantation but if bleed heavy or bright red then you should contact your dr immediately. Just to be safe I would still contact the Dr and let them know if you spot....just to keep them updated and it ases your mind as well. Congrats to you!!!

Amy, yes it is normal to have a little bit of cramping expecially during your 5th week,since you period should of came.As, long as you don't have any bleeding I'm sure it is okay! As, for the hair highlighting I think it is fine.Try to get some amonia-free so you don't smell the toxic chemicals! !!Congrats!!
