    So it appears i am chatting to myself in here
    helloooooooooooo

    Question: What does everyone stand with regards to chemicals eg Hair Colour, cleaning products etc? I Have been cleaning with natural products for a while now (when i clean which is very rare haha). I am due for a root touch up but am cautious about dyeing my hair in the 1st trimester. I know my Hair Dresser would say it is fine, she has been pregnant twice and has 2 healthy kids and continued to work in her home salon right up until 3 weeks before giving birth. Anyway just interested to know what everyone does?

    Lissy I'm paranoid about chemicals. I won't be touching my hair for the first trimester. Everyone says it's fine but better be safe than sorry.

    Lissy - my hairdresser said they recommend waiting until after the first trimester. Also, my ob said it's okay to get my hair coloured, as long as it's only once in a while.

    Hi girls, well I am 10w tomorrow, and the last couple days have been experiencing some on/off cramps/abdominal dragging. Sometimes it feels like AF, sometimes not. Anyone else experienced this? I am freaking out (naturally) as I am a worry wart. Seeing the Ob tomorrow and praying he will do a scan and that everything will be ok.......has ruined my weekend

    Shy, i dont blame you for freaking out. Mild cramps and pulling are normal though and as long as you dont have bleeding with it im sure all is fine with bubbs. I had some bleeding and cramps over the weekend which totally freaked me out however it has calmed down now and my nausea has gone up a notch which i am taking as a good sign. I would demand a scan just to put your mind at ease. This 1st trimester is not fun!!
