hiya girls!
i am 5 to 6 weeks with my 2nd baby. with my 1st i had no morning sickness, no cramps, no heartburn or anything from start to end and got a healthy girl that was 2 at the weekend.
this time i have been feeling sick from morning to night and getting a lot of period like cramps a lot of the time and a few times a day i get sharp twinges.

i rang the surestart to speak to the midwife but she doesnt book pregnancies in til 8 weeks and my doctor wont either. i had a friend that lost her baby to an eptopic pregnancy a few years back. ive had no spotting though. are the twinges normal and i had a lucky escape with Sophia or do you girls think i shoud push for 'medical experts' to investigate?!

I had cramps around week 5-6 and I went to the emergency room where they did a vaginal ultrasound and told me I had hemmorrhaging. I was put on bed rest because the risk for losing a pregnancy is so high with hemorrhaging. I too didn't have any bleeding.

But when I went to my first OB appointment he said that the hemorrhaging was so small it wouldn't affect me or the baby and the cramps I was feeling were probably just everything moving around to make room for my growing uterus and baby. My uterus sits to the left also, so that sometimes causes some discomfort. But now that I'm 9 weeks pregnant, I've had no more cramping.

If your instinct says something is wrong, go to the emergency room if a doctor won't see you. But, know that it doesn't always mean something bad is going on. It could just be your body adjusting!

I think you should push for medical experts to investigate. What hospital do you go 2 or who is your midwife?

Saw the midwife today, she said baby is implanted high up bum not eptopic so it's all good, and I won't have a low lying placenta so that's fab news too! It's eased off now a little too, things we do for our kiddies eh! Xx
