So it's kind of funny...in my time working in an emergency room there have been tons of women/girls who have come in for cramping/abdominal pain while pregnant. I always would laugh to myself and think...what do they expect?! They're growing a human in their belly.... no kidding they have abdominal pain.
Now I have the cramping....and I'm freaking out. I want it checked out! It's not that I am unable to cope with the pain, want a solution, or want pain medication...it's fear. It's fear that there might be something wrong. Usually your body gives you little clues that things aren't super great, and you should listen to it. So with the cramping I am concerned that perhaps there is no baby growing...and that would be a bummer. I have to continually tell myself to let nature take its course...don't stress, it will all work itself out one way or another. So that's what I am doing....sans wine or motrin... my usual go-to-cramp-solver.
But yay! I'm 6 weeks pregnant!! That's something worth celebrating....with a nice cold glass of...water. Oh yeah, and helping matt bottle his beer!
