I am 26 years old and i think i am pregnant...because i feel dizzy and nauseaus, sensitive and i don't mens until now, delay for almost 3 months .. even having sex i don't like... i test my self two times by using normal pregnancy test but it was negative.. i am planning to see the doctor tomorrow but for now i am so worried about my feelings.. i have menstrual pains.. it is very painful but it last only like 5 minnute.. i always feel it 5 times a day...almost everyday since last 1/2 weeks ago... my nipple was sore but my breast is not painful... about menstrual pain is it normal or not???? i a m really worried about.... i have also Back pain a lil' bit in my right side down part. everytime that i am trying to laydown in my right side my belly become pain again... so i am also worried maybe i have appendisities.... i don't know... it is making me insane all the time....

AnswerI am 5 weeks along. I have had 2 miscarriages and 1 ectopic pregnancy. For some reason, this time, I am experiencing menstrual cramps this time around. At first, I was worried, but I have gone to different websites to read a little more on this. It seems that it is perfectly normal to have these feelings in your belly. Don't worry too much, I worry enough for every pregnant woman out there. Unless there is spotting or unbearable pain, I wouldn't worry at all. AnswerI am 43 years old and third time (naturally) pregnant. Last time I became pregnant it was a very deliberate attempt. We knew what day we tried to consume, what day ovulation began and what day I beame pregnant etc. So it was all planned. approx 10 days after we had sex on my most probable day to become pregnant, I had slight spotting (4-5 days, but only once or twice a day) and I thought it was normal. It was in the form of only one or 2 drop of very pink spotting or brownish red, again very light discharge. Then next three months, I had menstrual pains ( very lightly) almost daily. Then I was told the baby stopped breathing inside me. I had to have an abortion as a result. To find out why I had amiscarriage, I requested from the doctors to have a chrommosommme test on the fetus. The result was a shock. The fetus had a chrommossomme abnormality on the chrommossome 18 and 21, one causing Down syndromme, the other causing Edward Syndrome. But I was told it was not genetic and there was %1 change me to get another pregnancy with the similar result. So in a way. I was luck.

This time when I became pregnant I checked the symptoms. Firstly, I did not have any spotting. Secondly, I had menstrual type of ( ever slightly again) pains only before my usual period days. So I am hopefull.

I am not suggesting in anyway that every spotting would cause miscarriage but in my experience I can feel now that there was something wrong with my previous pregnancy from the day 1. So, please be aware of your body and talk to your doctor. Having said that, there is absolutely nothing that anyone can help if one has miscarriage. And in my experience I was devastated when I had a miscarriage but when I learnt the test result, I cried with joy. So I would definitely recommend to conduct a test on the fetus in case of miscarriage.

Answeri found out i was pregnant about a week and a half ago. i was a smoker but i quit as soon as the third test came back positive (i had 4) during my smoking i was having cramps, now that i stopped smoking the cramps have pretty much went away, i get 1 or 2 every 2 days or so. after asking people and going to the hospital, and getting the run around on the right answer, im happy to see that there are other people out there that get them. AnswerI think I am 5 or 6 weeks pregnant and I am having some cramping. Sometimes it is just on one side and other times it moves around. I have that this is normal but I keep worryingthat it is a Tubal pregnancy. I am suppose to go the ob/gyn in 6 days for my first visit but yesterday I bought one of those baby books and freaked out when I read the symptoms for tubal pregnancies. I am also have some low back pain on my right side. I called the doctor this morning to ask their opinion but the midwife on call has to call me back. I was wondering if anyone has had the same symptoms. AnswerAs your uterus is starting to grow and stretch it is very normal in the first trimester to have period like cramps... however if they get really severe call your doctor immediatly or if you see any blood... I am on my fourth pregnancy and cramping in the begining is all quite normal..
