  • You cant doo too much about it. Some girls get it early on and through out the end. Rest, put your feet up, and drink water. That usually will help. ALso take a bath but not too hot of one. It will relax your muscles and help with pain or discomfort.

  • yah basically u cant do anything about it.. i got some cramping early on before i even knew i was pregoo.. 1st a missed period and then really sore breasts and then i had some mild cramping off and on for about a week and then i took 4 tests (not all in one day) but scattered out between 2 weeks and they all came back positive..
