Hi Chrissy <br><br>Just to let you know I got a positive and I was getting AF pains but the clinic said to me it was normal to get this. Occasionally I do feel like I have AF pains now and I am now 22 weeks if you are a little concerned there is no harm in phoning your clinic and having some reassurance.<br>Let us know but I am sure you will be fine.<br>Love<br>Shell.<br>xx

Hi Chrissy<br><br>congratulations on your positive, you must be over the moon! Just to warn you, the worry and paranoia gets worse now - makes the 2ww feel like a walk in the park!! :-) Seriously, don't worry about any aches and pains, everything seems to be normal for pregnancy. Your ovaries have got a bit of calming down to do after all the stimming they've been through. I've also read that your uterus starts growing immediately and you can get niggly pains from that too! Try and relax and take it easy for a few weeks and don't panic!! <br><br>As Shell says, keep us posted!<br><br>helen xx

Hi there - just to add to the other girls' advice with a bit of reassurance - yes, AF type pain is totally normal, your uterus has already started growing and as it grows and ligaments stretch you'll feel AF type pains. But if they get worse, if you get any spotting, or if you're worried, call your clinic.<br><br>I had terrible AF pains about twice a day for 5 - 10 minutes for the first 10 weeks - am now almost 21 weeks and it still happens now and then!<br><br>Just relax!<br><br>lots of love Sally xx
