  • I had pains like that and went to the ER and they told me that I had a UTI go get it checked they gave me meds that were safe for baby and me and it is gone now! Now I get Small cramps every once in a while but thats normal for your growing uterus.

  • be careful with the menstrual like cramping when pregnant. you need to see a dr. i dont want to give any bad news but sometimes they can be a warning of miscarriage. praying that is not the case!

  • I had the feeling you are talking about from about week 5 to week was all normal. I'm 16 weeks now and they've gone away. Doc told me that it was normal as long as I was not bleeding [by bleeding I mean period-like flow]. With these cramps you might even have some brown or pinkish discharge. As scary as it all may feel, it's okay, as long as you aren't bleeding. Elevate your feet, stay hydrated and take it easy. I'm sure you will be find! If you are really concerned though, call your doctor. The way you describe it though seems much like what myself, and my two cousins experienced and they both have healthy babies and I'm still going strong! Good luck to you!
