  • Yea, mother nature knows what she is doing. There is a lot more protection than people give there credit for being. Just next time take it a little easy.

  • Yes, you'll be fine. My cramps up when I stretch it too much, for example getting out of the car to fast, or laying on it wrong.

  • Yes you should be okay. Your body might have just been telling you to take a break. I mowed the lawn when I was 8 months pregnant and helped move furniture at 6 and I was fine.

  • you should be fine. i would only worry if you start to bleed. But maybe next time try not to lift and cary it if it is a little heavy since you are still early in your pregnancy. But cramping can be normal in early pregnancy.
