Cramps galore!

Well, it has been an eventful few days. Friday's scan went very well, nice long and closed cervix, no drama's getting there and JBB all good. They did another check to make sure that JBB is indeed a boy - yes, he is there is no doubt about it - yay!!
Saturday I had my normal day of going to the market for the weeks food shopping but beforehand JourneyMan and I did a (very overdue) house clean. After the market, my Mum and I headed off to a maternity clothes sale and I got a couple of pants - a black pair that are just sensational. some nice work ones and I nice jumper for the winter since I have pretty much nothing that will fit once winter hits! So, I was pretty exhausted when I got home from all of my adventures and I hit the couch in a bit way.
A couple of hours later, I started getting really bad cramps. They were so bad that I could barely walk hunched over to the bathroom to get some painkillers. JourneyMan was over at his friends house and I called him and couldn't stop crying because I was so scared. Poor JourneyMan was very worried and talked to his best friend's wife who gave some suggestions which JourneyMan texted me. I know that the doctor told me last time that some people get period cramps all through their pregnancy but it is still very freaky and hard not to think that something is wrong.
Since then, I have been getting cramps everyday. No bleeding thankfully but still, it has been a rough few days cramps wise. Yesterday, the dizzyness also came back with a vengeance - though I haven't fallen over thank goodness.
Not much else happening at the moment - mostly I am just trying to stay in as positive frame of mind as possible.


  1. I'm sorry you're having cramps. Hoping with all of my being it's all normal and that it'll go away asap.
    Lots of hugs!

  2. Try and stay positive :-) I had cramps and bleeding and am as of tomorrow 29 weeks

    the cramps can be everything spreading out and expanding to accomodate the little one - I found that they got a bit better towards the middle of the 2nd trimester and then the braxtons take over hehehe you can't win

    if you are ever worried go and get checked out though because at least it puts your mind at ease :-)

  3. Ahh! The cramps would freak me out too. Has your doctor seen you since you got them? I would get in just to make sure everything is still okay, regardless of some people having them their entire pregnancy.

    Be sure to take it as easy as possible.

    Loads of love and hugs!

  4. Glad to hear JBB is doing well! Sorry about the cramps though - did you call the doctor? I hope they get better for you soon.

    Also, thanks so much for the wonderful comment you left me a couple weeks ago. I really appreciate all the encouragement and talk of slapping the elevator guy! ;)

  5. The cramps must be so scary! I hope you will be able to see your OB soon, just for some reassurance that everything is ok.

  6. I hope you feel better soon - that sounds very uncomfortable to say the least. Hang out on that couch, lady! That's what I am doing!
