Is it normal to experience cramping during the first couple of weeks of pregnancy? Should I worry?


peanut - February 9

as long as it is not severe cramping i think you are okay. I had slight cramping here and there. That is supposed to be your uterus stretching and growing. I wouldn't worring hun.

I have literally just asked the same question- I'm 4 weeks and starting getting cramp last night- just like a period but no bleeding- Apparantly it's normal so long as no bleeding- glad to hear others are in the boat! How far gone are you?

I'll be 5 weeks this Monday. I have started having cramping right after I got a positive test. I'm glad to hear others are getting it too.

I am also about 5 weeks pregnant and experiencing cramping. It is not severe, but it is uncomfortable and last on and off throughout the day.

im having cramping down low and lower back but pregnancy test is negative but its not quite time for my peorid. has any one had this in very early pregnancy


QT - March 1

i am also in the same boat as you robin...i am due for my period on monday and my husband and i have been trying to conceive. I know it's too early to take a test but i feel a lot of symptoms such as cramping(different from menstrual), nausea, frequent urination, b___st tenderness. Is it too early to be having symptoms?? We would have conceived one 1/2 weeks ago. Please help me!

I have had cramping since just a little before my pregnancy, and it's still going on off an on... I does go away when I lay down... The first time it happened I ran to my ob but every thing looked fine. I am not worrying about it until I have bleeding... *praying not to* It could be a number of things... gas, gallbladder (which I had before) even though your gallbladder is higher in your stomach, it makes every thing hurt. If you can, when you feel pain, just lay down and get some rest.

I am 9.5 weeks. I had light - mod cramping from 4 weeks (right when I was supposed to get my period) and even now I still have some, but it kind of faded after 8 weeks....every thing was perfect at the last U/S and I go again tomorrow so wish me luck...good luck to all of you and congrats on your pregnancies!!!

YES, definatly - I had strong cramps for the first month or even more... Like menstrual , but for me was stronger and VERY uncomfortable.


Dyan - March 2

so glad to hear everyone else is getting period pain like cramping as well. i was convinced i was losing the pregnancy. I am 5 weeks.


kim - March 2

yeah, cramping is normal unless it has you doubling over in pain. i've been cramping since week 5 and still do and i'm on my 9th week. my doctor said it's just my uterus growing.

Hey I am so happy to hear what you guy's all have to say. Off and on since about 5 wks I have had cramping. I am 11 1/2 weeks and today I feel like I do when I am going to have a heavy period. I hope everything is ok!!!
