Re: Tested Positve....now what??

First of all, Congrats on your BFP!!! That's great!! Are you a November mom? If so, we have a thread around here somewhere!!

Secondly, your symtoms sound normal to me... as those are the same ones I experienced right after I found out I am preggo. The cramping went away, but the sore breasts have continued for me... hehe.. so much fun!
This is my first pregnancy too... and like you, I have a million questions. My recommendation would be to get the book "What to Expect When you are Expecting". I bought this a few days ago and it has been VERY helpful for all of my questions. And of course you can ask your doctor too.

Good luck with everything... I hope your Dr. Appt. goes well!!!

Re: Tested Positve....now what??

Hey there!! Well congrats on the pregnancy!! I am 24 weeks pregnant with my first!! My first symptom was sore boobs and blue veins on them became more apparent..the soreness didnt last too long though..a few weeks id say..and i didnt think for a minute i was pregnant because when my period was due, i got horrible cramps..i kept rushing to the bathroom cuz i was sure it was coming!! It happened the next month for me too, but as long as there is no bleeding, there is nothing to be worried about!! I think your body just isnt adjusted to the pregnancy so you can still get period symptoms. its completely normal, i hear a lot of women say they felt like they were going to get their period the first month! i think diet coke should be fine because there is no caffeine in it..just try and avoid large amounts of caffeine, take prenatal vitamins if you can, and eat healthy...crazy things happen to your body during pregnancy but its a good thing..dont feel stupid about asking any kind of questions cuz it is confusing, i know i ask questions all the time..i have no idea whats normal, whats not and what i should be feeling..its scary your first time..as for tanning, dont go to the tanning bed but you can lay outside since its not direct rays, i asked the same question! hah keep posting and remember dont feel stupid about asking anything!

I read that you should avoid artificial sweetners like aspartame (which is in diet coke). I don't know about splenda.

I just found out I'm pregnant too and keep worrying that I'm doing something wrong. but so many people have children, it must not be that hard????
