What is this pain???

I am 5 weeks 3 days pregnant and experience the pulling, stretchy, achy cramp from time to time. Nothing severe. But this morning I woke up at 3 with tears in my eyes. You know that cramp you used to get in your leg as a kid? The "growing pain". I felt that pain in my tummy! It hurt so bad I got up and ran to the bathroom to check for blood thinking i was miscarrying. Could this just be a more painful version of the pulling and stretching? Please help, anyone experience anything similar?

  • It's "growing pain" Momma. I know it sucks. It hurts so bad. Mine lasted for months when I was pregnant with my son. It does subside and get better. Feel better soon.
