  • I had cramps my whole first trimester. As long as it isn't accompanied by bleeding you shouldn't worry.

  • I had cramps the whole time so far but I'm only 14 weeks so I'm hoping it will go away soon.

  • I had cramps into my second trimester but they went away around the 5th month for me. I wouldn't worry as long as they aren't really, really, painful.

  • Yeah, all your inner organs move when your pregnant, they have to make room.Cramps are mainly in the beginning, but then you get to look forward to all the kicking, it feels especially good when they kick your ribs. (ouch). Hang in there, it's all worth it in the end :)
