Is it normal to have period like cramping at 5 weeks pregnant?

I didn't have any cramping in the beginning with my first, and now I'm having cramps like I'm going to start my period. Is this a normal pregnancy symptom or should I be worried?

  • its totally normal! as long as you dont have bleeding and stuff, then youre fine! I had period cramps CONSTANTLY with my dd. At times they were pretty painful too. I found out the hard way after freaking out, that they are completely normal!

  • Yes, very normal. I had it too all the time, and when I asked my doctor it was very normal. So yes just as long as you have no bleeding or strange discharge.
