I hope I'm not the only one but before I even knew I was pregnant I started waking up in the middle of the night with what felt like horrible menstrual cramps. I think they are gas cramps but the gas is moving so slowly that it may not pass until hours later.
At the same time the cramping started ( I still cramp up 2-3 times a day or night), I got bloated so that I already don't fit into my pre-pregnancy pants! I bought a size larger and some belly bands so I can wear them unbuttoned - this is crazy - i'm only 5 weeks along!
I hope I'm not alone in this. Yesterday I started feeling queasy so I'm assuming morning sickness has started up, at least this is something expected!
