    Last few days I don't feel sick anymore and I'm getting lots more hypo's. I increased my basal through the night so they are steady. It's during the day I'm going hypo. Iv been having light cramps/ dull achey pains I'm feeling really nervous and totally diff from 1st pregnancy.

    All pregnancies ate different hun. The light cramps are a good sign that's ur uterus growing so it's still a symptom. I'm currently 6 weeks and 5 days and I no longer feel sick either but then all of a sudden this afternoon had like a faint heart burn sickness for a short period. Have you booked in with a midwife yet?

    I have a scan next week, I feel very different from 1st pregnancy. In my 1st I was very sick and as awful as it was it was kind of reassuring that everything was ok.

    I had what they call round ligament pain about that stage with 2 of my 3. Each pregnancy was quite different in symptoms and lack of nausea is perfectly ok for many even at different times of the same pregnancy but if you are worried speak to your midwife for checks or reassurance, even if you haven’t had the official first booking.

    I was told all diabetics get early scan 6/8 weeks. Then after it's booking appointment I think it's 2 weeks later. From what I remember from my 1st!

    My gp was the same. He took blood and didn't even check my hba1c! Had to go to hospital Thurs and they took it there.

    Hiya, I’m exactly where you ladies were a few weeks ago. 5 weeks pregnant today and totally stressing!! Light cramps and insulin already needing to be increased! What weeks did you all have your first scans? And did you see a heart beat on themXx
