Aching

It's my first day back at work today... 4867 new emails gave me a headache. But physically I really ache.

My lower back and lower abdomen are really sore. Come or this be because it's my first day of sitting on my office chair etc or perhaps my body being tired?

It's only one week since my positive result... I've told Mr Emu I won't test again but I'm already starting to lose my magical belief that it worked. :(

Any thoughts? X

Totally normal. I had this too. Apparently is stretching and growing pains x

At five weeks? :/ x

Yup from the moment I found out until about 7 weeks I felt odd like I was about to come on. Cramps and aches and pinches. Then about 8 weeks it all went

They're definitely worse today. :( hope you're right. :) x

I'm saying this to give you hope and calm but obviously I'm not a doctor and if your concerned phone your clinic or midwife. But the first few weeks are terrifying. Every little thing you will panic about and that is normal. Get some rest as soon as you are home xx

Listen to your body Hun , just rest when you get home , you prob feel ache cos your back at work . I remember the first 3 months of pregnancy feeling exausted and was more Torrington cos didn't want to tell anyone I was pregnant . Beleve it - you have a little human growing inside u . 😌😌😚

Aww Emu sorry your first day back has been a bit sh*t 😢

It's prob sitting at your desk all day. Can you maybe get a wee support for your back.

Once you announce your pregnancy they will likely do a H&S assessment of your work station. You will be pampered by footstools and armrests 😂😂

Re the test you are just having a wobble but if you want to test do it as it will just maybe restore your faith at least for a few hours!! I would prob test constantly so no point in me trying to discourage you.

Right open up those arms (((((--------)))))))) big hug and lots of Love ❤❤❤❤ your doing great 😗

Don't! You'll make me cry! 😂

I've had a relatively easy day at work. I even managed pessary-insertion without a glitch! I just don't want to be at work. I want to be at home until I've seen a professional to tell me the ivf has worked. And then I noticed I was hurting. You're right... Could be the damn stupid chair. Might see if there's a cushion! x

I wish my boobs would ache again! *things I never thought I'd say* x

You have been through so much to get to this point... that it's not surprising you are scared, looking for symptoms, scared where there are no symptoms. Scared when there are symptoms. I hope you can relax eventually and enjoy your pregnancy (easier said than done I know!). Just try and remember you deserve this so it's not too good to be true! I hope you are ok. Take care of yourself xxxxxxx
