Quoting katxo:" I went to the emergency room b/c of my cramping finally...Well... I got an ultrasound done and I got ... [snip!] ... not sure where all the cramping is coming from but I am so glad I got to see my lil baby! My hcg levels were close to 69,000"
period like cramps are normal... My Dr said to think of it as your uterus stretching and growing to make room for your growing baby.
As long as there is no bright red bleeding, you should be fine.... He also said that braxton hicks can start as early as 8ish weeks, especially in subsequent pregnancies because you already know what to "look" for.
So happy everything is going well!
<3 I was wondering about you a couple weeks ago, and I was so happy to see you finally caught the eggy!!!!
