All I can really say is just for you to relax and be patient. No one will be able to tell you anything, honestly. Just give it time, take a test and go from there.

In time you will get your baby. Good luck <3

How far along are you? Have you been to your first check up? Cramps and stomach pains are never a good sign. I am not trying to scare you, but just make sure to take it easy and relax. If you are 9wks or beyond you can schedule and appointment with your doctor/midwife and be seen. If not, then I would go to the ER and see about getting an ultrasound just to ease your mind. Bless you and good luck.

I am 40 with 4 living children, this Baby is quite the surprise for us. I am waiting to tell some family members until after the Holidays simply because we didn`t want any bad comments to ruin our Christmas. This Baby is very unexpected but very wanted and I hope my Family will only share their happiness with us.

`There are also treatments available which can be taken if the problem becomes extreme, which will not harm your baby. Discuss with your caregiver what is available and what are best for your particular problem`

In Re: of this, I wonder what those remedies/Treatments are, because i have tried everything to coconut water, to Milk of Mag( bad idea by the way for me,cramping and tenderness for 2 days with lots of gas and minimal BM`s) fiber adds more bulk and drink water till i feel water logged...

i have tried nearly everything, leafy green vegetables, to fruit and veggie blended up into a smoothie in a blender, bran cereal, you name it, i`ve eaten it or tried it...aside from an emema...

In Growth and Development > Pacifiers
i gave both my boys a pacifier when they were babies lol the NUK brand i liked best, their teeth are perfect as so is the shape of their mouth aside of hereditary overbite they got from me, One needed braces and the other had a set of perfect teeth according to his dentist, both have zero cavities, i also gave floride and brushed their little teeth, and tossed the pacifier when the pacifier got old and yucky, and i took the binkie away when they turned 2 and only allowed it at bedtime and when it would fall out of their mouth while they slept, i would sneak it away and hide it, sooner or later they just forgot about it by the time they were 3 years old. this was 24.5 year ago.

This time with this new baby, I really have no idea what i`m going to decide LOL new studies show us new things.

I was an avid thumbsucker for years into my adulthood and my teeth paid for it as well as my self esteem, i had to wear braces as a grown up!

but suffered teasing as a teenager due to bucked teeth and my parent couldnt affort braces for me back then.

I am on the fence on this topic lol

In Growth and Development > Smoking
I stopped smoking the day i found 2 lines on a HPT, cold turkey.

my guilty conscience rules me, how I managed the cravings was drink alot of water, went for walks, took a shower to comfort myself because you cant smoke in the shower lol ( well i suppose you can, but i never had luck with it LOL), and would I put my hand on my tummy whenever I craved a cigarette, imagining my baby would cry or beg me to stop abusing her/him before she/he was born, my conscience can be a cruel monster, but, the truth hurts when reality sets in.

i have been a smoker for 27 years, but in my pregnancies, i stoppd for the love of my child and I could wait out the 9 months till baby was born before i started up again (after they were born) ( stupid me on my part, havign to torture myself over and over again :( )
FACT: after 3 solid weeks of absolute NO smoking and NO NRT( nicotine replacement therapy) the nicotine is out of your system.

after that it is soley the habit your fighting against, I keep suckers on hand, for the hand to mouth habit, and took up crocheting a blanket for my sweet bundle of joy.
it is a labor of love to stop smoking while your pregnant. and anyone can do it for at least the duration of their pregnancy.I did it, and i loved to smoke!

my 2 oldest children who are grown up now, Do NOT smoke! i thank my lucky stars for that.
i had half a mind when i did start back up, i was a severe closet smoker , hiding it from them, smelling like a 2 bit whore with cheap cologne and lots of changing of clothes and washing laundry and never ever smoke around them or get caught by them, as it would devestate me of why i hate myself so much to hurt myself, what will they do without me? they are my babies and i am commiting slow suicide in front of them, No i cared to much for my kids, but i hid my dirty secret for years and felt just as guilty.

I do not plan on taking it up again, as i an now 44 years old, pregnant with my 3rd child. out of 5 pregnancies, 3 of them ended in a loss. I wont take a gamble on the life of my child they are so so precisous.

I do not judge against others of those who continue to smoke, i only pity that the stronghold of cigarette smoking has on us who have been through it first hand.

if you need someone to talk to that has been there like I have, you may contact me for support, add me as a contact, i will talk you off the ledge while your craving is beating you up.

At least being able to bitch about not being to smoke to someone else who understands that kind of pain of withdrawl will at least take your mind off of it for that moment anyway.

Good luck and congradulations on your new life ahead, as a non smoker and your new baby.
Peace, Love and Joy to you all
love,
--Meekspirit
