  • Very normal. Your uterus is growing and stretching, so you cramp.

    If your cramping is accompanied by blood, however, you need to see a doctor right away.

  • yes! your body is going through a major change. it is making room for the baby so the muscles and uterus is contracting and stretching, and hormones are a little bonkers and with it comes discomfort. it won't last!

  • yes, it's long as it doesn't get severe...then if that's the case, there might be complications of some sort. if you start bleeding, go to the doctors.

  • i cramp every day and it sucks. sometimes it's sharp and other times it feels like a menstrual cramp. my doctor assured me that it's completely normal and drinking more water and taking tylenol can help reduce the pain.
