1st trimester questions

Hi ladies! I'm 6 1/2 weeks and just have a few questions about whether some things I'm experiencing are normal. First, I'm having a small amount of discharge (I guess that's what it is anyway). No spotting, but my underwear appear a little wet sometimes. Is this normal? Also, I'm already having some mild crampiness and what feels like minor stretching/pulling. Is this part normal? It just seems early to be having some of these symptoms. I don't have my first OB appt until next week, so I just thought I'd ask you ladies' opinions.

Increased discharge and mild cramping are both perfectly normal!

I had the increased discharge and the cramping, and am 17 weeks along now. They are both perfectly normal...

Re: 1st trimester questions

You sound about as far along as I am. When is your EDD?

I am also 6wks along and experiencing the same symptoms. I experienced the discharge immediately and it really hasn't let up since. Also, every once in awhile I feel some crampiness. My nurses said it is fine as long as I am not having any bleeding with the cramps. I haven't received my edd yet but I tried to figure it out on my own and I think I am due April 9th. I will find out next Monday, i go for my first ultrasound then.

I had the same thing between 5 and 6 weeks. Totally normal.

Re: 1st trimester questions

Thanks ladies! I thought all was normal, but it never hurts to hear it again from others. I don't see the doctor until 8 weeks (too many preggo women at the practice I guess!), but I think my EDD is around April 1. It's nice that there are a few of us around that time!

Re: 1st trimester questions

I think I'm just after you all as far as EDD. (I also did it on my own and thinking~4/19/07) I just found out last Thursday and already have the cramping and discharge. Haven't had a u/s done but 3 BETAs so far and my numbers are doubling nicely.

Hello koukla and CHJH! Yeah! It's so exciting we're on here together!!!
