Post subject: Hello
I am new to this site, having just stumbled across it in some frenetic Google activity.
Um . . . . I am 30. I have just had one cycle off the pill and my period is due any day (not sure when, exactly). For about a week now, I have been experiencing period pain-style cramps in my lower back and abdomen. I've heard that this could possibly be one of the earliest symptoms of pregnancy. I have no other symptoms.
I thought it would be very unlikely that I'd conceive the first month after coming off the pill, but have also heard that a woman is very fertile at this time.
My feelings about possibly being pregnant are really conflicting. I spent several days feeling really hopeful and excited, but then this morning I panicked at the idea and freaked out a bit. I am absolutely terrified of birth, which is a major factor in waiting this long before even trying.
I'm not really looking for advice, though if anyone has any, I'll happily listen! I just wanted to chat to anyone out there.

its not unlikley to fall pregnant staright away after coming of the pill it is known but for other women it does take longer.
dont worry about the birth its not as bad as ppl say.
once you enjoy the pregnancy the birth doesent feel as scary anymore.
