5 weeks pregnant. Mild cramping normal?

Found out yesterday with 3hpts.haha
I've been having mild back cramps for about 5 days now. No blood whatsoever. I don't remember experiencing this with my first pregnancy.
Anyone experience anything similar?

  • I had lots of cramping during my second pregnancy that I didn't have during my first because my first baby was delivered by c-section. It is my understanding that you have more cramping througout your pregnancy if you first have had a c-section. But then again that could just be my body and maybe I am no help to you at all!!! LOL

  • yes ofcourse, its ligament pain. Your body is making room for you growing uterus. There is really nothing to worry about unless it becomes very intense.
    Congrats on your pregnancy!
