  • Yes. I had menstrual like cramps from 6 weeks preggo until around 12 weeks. Its your body changing, your uterus growing. No worries (unless they get stronger or you start to bleed heavily - then worry)

  • I dunno about that. I would check with my doc. My friend had those symptoms when she was early in her pregnancy and she miscarried. I don't know your situation and I'm not trying to scare you, but I would ask my doctor.

  • I had the same symtoms and because it is my first I was told it is because of growing and stretching of the muscles and ligaments. If there is bleeding and consistant cramping talk to you OBGYN. immediatly or go to the emergency room.
