    Hello madam...its normal to be anxious.the pains you are feeling may well be normal pains. but you have to watch out for any bleeding, frequent urination, fever, unusual fluid staining your underwear . Also see your doctor soon if the pain is very unbearable as fibroid are known to cause extreme pain in pregnancy with something called red degeneration. blood supply reduces to the fibroid causing pain.its treated with bed rest and pain killers

    no sign of bleeding yet, but I do have frequent urination, I don't know if it due to taking much water. and I do have headache most night.

    Hello again.the frequent urination may be a number of things.an infection of your urinary tract causing lower tummy pain that needs to be treated. It may also be a normal sign of early pregnancy as the womb is getting bigger, it presses on your bladder causing you frequent urination but not necessarily pain.i would always advice you to have it checked out.better to be rest assured nothing is wrong than to leave it to chance. your doctor will order a scan and urinalysis. He MAY also examine your cervix.all these precautionary especially as you ain't bleeding.

    Hi...1st time mothers feel thier babies kicks around18 to 20 weeks..thats about 4.5 to 5 months. Mums who have had babis before start feeling kiciks as early as 3.5 to 4 months. Basically you just feel a KICK or movements in your lower tummy.when you feel it,you will surely know.
