Cramps during and after housework

Ok.. I am pretty sure I am pregnant. I know what it feels like and i am usually miserable the first couple of weeks. My period is due in 5 days and already i have had morning sickness, nausea and cramps. my boobs ..well nipps for the most part is VERY sensitive.

Anyway.. I remember with my last pregnancy housework .. especially brooming would cause me to have backaches and stomach aches and this is usually around the week i find out , so about 3-4 weeks pregnant.

I just cleaned the house and swept the floor and I was cramping during and after. I am also ExHAUsted and I just did light cleaning.. cleaning countertop , sweeping floor and washed dishes.

while sweeping i also got VERY nauseous!! and I thougt the naseua was gone today and bam! cleaning brought it back.

is this normal???... I cant imagine how it would be once this pregnancy progresses.

  • Take a pregnancy test! :-)
    Cramping means that your uterus is trying to expel its contents. Cramping is a sign of a period or a miscarriage.

  • i will take a test.. i am positive i am pregnant

    MY question is ... does housework cause this and nausea for some while pregnant.

    cramping is also associated with pregnany not only expelling things.

  • I don't know the answer. I'm not asking I'm in pregnant. Y'all need to learn to read!! Too busy trying to be funny. I asked if this is normal. Someone said cramps are only sign of expelling I said not true. That doesn't mean I answered my question.

    The answers section is full of uneducated, low life, miserable women. Most sites are supportive of but not this. No wonder they hide the answers section--- you losers are horrible! If you can't answer a question then pass it. You are not obligated to respond to rack up useless points. It's kind of frustrating when you're asking a genuine question and some idiot has to ruin it.

    This is a site with moms--purpose: answer questions on experiences and people post questions in related topics. Idiots!!!
