  • Yep. I am 8 weeks and I still get slight cramping. It's perfectly normal. And my cramping was pretty much the same (before I found out and right after I found out I was pregnant) as they would have been if I were about to get my period. I found out 2 days before I missed my period.

  • Yes, especially if it's your first. My early pregnancy cramps with my first pregnancy were even worse than my already terrible period cramps. I laid on the couch in the fetal position and cried for a couple of days.
