Thanks so much for this post! I am five weeks as well, and last year I made it to five weeks and then it terminated. So now I am so scared every time I feel any pain or a cramp or anything in my stomach or back region. I am going to stay hopeful because of your posts!

I'm 17 and need an experienced girl's opinion. I finished up my period about 2 weeks ago, but a few days after, I started to feel cramping again along w/ some extreme moodiness- at least, according to my bf of 2 years. Still in the first week after my period, I could tell he started to get worried, saying that i've been really sensitive lately and he doesnt know why I'm so moody. To try and ease him, I told him that Im probably just having post pms instead of having it prior to my period (but the truth is that I had little pms before and during too), but its at least 2 weeks after i finished my period and Im still having some cramping that comes and goes throughout the day & I'm still just as moody (if not more), and just as irritable, and emotional(i've even cried). Not to mention, I've been getting tired during the day, and wanting to sleep earlier each night. Also,I get headaches that throb instead of them just being muscle headaches and have been a little backed up at times (i know, too much info.) Although, even more recently (mainly in the evening) I feel a sort of a rush of vibrations around my abdomen and inner theighs along with some bloating, bubbles, muscle twitches... The only noticable back pain I get is when im at school, but i just blame it on my bag even though i know that symptom is completely new also. I tried just summing up all my symptoms as my mind is just playing tricks on me or just any other excuse I could find(being dehydrated, P.E., gas, anything) but sometimes, it just seems like the possibility that i could actually be pregnant is still a factor and that i shouldnt just simply brush off. All opinions are welcome. I just want to hear from someone who's older and knows from experience vs. someone my age who just knows someone.

Alright sooo happy to see I am not the only one going through this! I am a little over 4 weeks (I think!?) and am having daily cramping also same feeling as period. Where I live the Dr. will only see you after your 8th week si it's a waiting game to ask questions or talk about concerns you might have. I have not gotten any discharge other than implantation bleeding a while back. Very excited baby no1!!!!

Gwendolynne - June 6

My cramps stopped but I have belly pains and nausea... guess this is what they call morning sickness I don't like it at all lol. At least it gives me a confirmation that everything is okay until I meet the Dr. for the first meeting at 10 weeks.
