  • I agree I would skip the running up the steps. You have to remember excersise is still great but your body is diffrent now. Talk to your OB about will work best for you. A little bit of cramping is normal. You uterus is groowing and the muscles and tendents are growing to. Try to relax while you still can.

  • for one thing you are pregnant don't run up the steps. take your time when going up or down stairs. yes it sounds normal to me. you are over working your body. if you over do it, then you can cause small contractions which it sounds like you are having. also your tendons, skin, and muscles are stretching on a daily basis. those could also be the pains you are experiences. take it easy until the baby is born.

  • well my niece was the same distance in her pregnancy and she was carrying clothes basket and stuff and ending up losing the baby so be VERY careful, a pregnancy is nothing to mess with btw congrats on the pregnancy.
