Cramps! Cramps! and... MORE CRAMPS! :(

So, my doctor says that cramping is very normal in pregnancy.  He said my ligaments are stretching, and it can cause pains like cramping.  Some people suffer from it... others never do.  Okay, I can buy that. 

Today, like many other days I've had cramping but it really upsets me.  I've been cramping for about 2 hours now.  I have lower right cramping (like menstrual cramps) and lower right cramping in my back.  It comes and goes, but it scares the crap out of me.  I, of course, researched this online.  MANY other women state they go through the exact same thing.  That I shouldn't worry, but I should call my doctor just in case.  Well, I haven't called my doctor because he already told me that cramping is normal.  However, when I start cramping, I turn into a basket-case.  I literally can't deal with it.  I assume the worst is happening.  I assume I'm going into early labor... or having a miscarriage... or something is wrong.    

The truth is... if something happened to my baby boy, I would die.  I honestly don't know how I could make it through life.  So...  I've already cried my eyes out (like I do every single time I get cramping).  The thought that something could be wrong scares me sooo bad.  My world would be over if anything happened to my sweet angel. 

So, to all the other pregnant ladies or mommies.... does this ever or has it ever happened to you??  Someone reassure me that I'm not crazy...

  2. Awww, Sam! I had it with all 3 pregnancies. My dr said that women who are small and fit tend to have it more bc we were "tight" to begin with...if that makes sense?! I will say a prayer for you and your little peanut! Hugs!


  3. Thanks, Autumn. I'm trying not to be that pregnant lady that calls her dr for every little pain, but sometimes it completely freaks me out. Sometimes researching online can scare the CRAP out of ya... ya know?! It's nice to know other women have gone through the same thing.

  4. Yes Sam, I've had the same thing and I've had it the entire pregnancy. I was calling all the time too and they told me not to worry about it too but I know you still worry. You're not crazy!

  5. With my first pregnancy I was worried about every twitch! I ended up buying a Fetal Doppler and every time I felt worried, I'd just listen to my sweet baby's heart beat :)

  6. Yes, I had it with both too and it's very normal. Your body is going to do some wacky-doodle things during these next few months! So, hang on for the ride. AND... DON'T GOOGLE!!!!!! Don't feel bad calling your dr. I called ALL the time. That's what they are there for and that's why you are paying them! They are used to it! Your baby boy is fine... but try not to stress b/c he doesn't like that. :) Your little one is in God's hands!!!!!!!!!! Relax, Mama! But, feeling that way is very normal... so you aren't a weirdo or anything! HA!
