But it is still freaking me out a little bit. Combined with the fact that my bbs don't feel as sore today it is basically making me a nervous nelly. Thank goodness my second beta is tomorrow, hopefully my numbers doubled so I can relax a little bit. Oye.....

These first couple weeks are sooo stressful. Try not to think about it too much. I'll be praying for you that your second beta turns out well tomorrow! If it's any consolation, I always have lots of cramping in early pregnancy.

Thanks Grace. It's funny that I remember cramping with DS, but can't remember what it was really like. You're right, the first few weeks are brutal. Hopefully they will go nice and quick! Also hoping tomorrow gives me a little reassurance!

My boobs did not start hurting this time until pretty much right before my colostrum came in, after 20 weeks. It's very common to NOT have sore BBS with second pregnancies right up until your milk comes in.

As for cramping it is scary and I wish it wasn't, BUT it also is super normal. I did not think I was going to be pregnant because my boobs weren't sore and I was having bad cramps and then sure enough I not only WAS pregnant, but with twins!

Big hugs! Hang in there!

It is pretty normal, I had them too on my 1st! In any case, it doesn't hurt to slow down when you feel them (if you are walking, try sitting for a while, or if you are doing housechores, lie down for a bit)

And as in any pregnancy,

I had lots of cramping in the beginning and now it's just here and there...no bleeding though. I'm praying for you to get some awesome beta's!!!

Thanks for the reassurance ladies. I know I had cramping with DS, but I think with having two chemicals my nerves are much worse this time around. However, I keep reiminding myself that I did have that cramping before and that I've had a child before, so I know my body can do it! On a good note, the cramping is not as bad as it was yesterday morning, so that's good :) Had my draw done at 9:30 this morning, so just waiting at this point...
