i'm about 16wks and have been getting a lot of lower abdomen pain, is this normal for this point of pregnancy? why? I see my doc tomorrow but i'm just curious

Its not constant but its been pretty frequent the last couple of days. Its just this horrible cramping/tightening feeling.... I don't know if that is normal to get around 16wks or not.... I see my doc tomorrow but i was just curious if any one else on here knew or not

....and no, its not constipation.

  • It could be braxton hicks contractions, but it also could be round ligament pain.

    I'm always having weird cramping since day 1 of my pregnancies and my doctor can't explain them all. This is my second pregnancy and I just started having braxton hicks contractions at 5 months, last pregnancy it was in the later part of the 6th month.

  • I'm 16 weeks and have cramping that comes and goes. It seems like I have them at night more. I think our bellies are starting to grow more so it feels different. Good luck with dr.
