  • I would def. get to a doctor as soon as you can. Some cramps are common during pregnancy, but HORRIBLE cramps are not. I had slight cramps randomly throughout my first trimester but I haven't had any since, I am now 30 weeks. I would def. say that horrible cramps are not normal and it could be possible you are going into pre-term labor. Call your doctor or go to the Labor and Delivery dept. at your hospital and have them check you out. Better to be safe than sorry.
