  • Yes because your uterus is expanding as the baby grows. I cramped in my 3rd month, 5th month 7th month and I'm now 38 weeks and these contractions feel like horrible menstrual cramps. Today I was cramping for 3-hrs straight! I took a 2-hr lunch because the pain made me wanna throw up but they eventually went away. I'm glad to be home, in my bed, on my phone waiting to fall asleep. :)

  • I might wanna add that when I was cramping, it was all month long, it was only like 1 or 2 days and then it goes away but that's a sign that your uterus is getting bigger as the baby grows with it. I drink atleast 2 liters of water a day. Dehydration can cause cramping as well.

  • It depends how early; sometimes it might be round ligament pain.

  • I had a lot of menstrual like cramping my first trimester. I thought that I was getting my period before I found out I was pregant, but the cramping continued throughout my entire first trimester. It made me very nervous, but it turned out to be fine. My son is almost 2 now.
