  • Congratulations!!! The cramping is normal. Make sure you drink plenty of water, dehydration can cause cramping. The extreme hunger is normal too, you're making a person, so you have to eat a little extra :) The hormones are in full motion, which is why you're emotional, and you're tired because, again, you are making a little person :) It's all very normal. Hope you have a happy and healthy nine months!!!

  • Cramps are def. normal! My first few weeks after I found out I was pregnant, it felt so much like I was starting my period I was constantly worried and going to the bathroom to make sure I wasn't bleeding.

  • Cramping CAN be normal! If they continue for long periods of time, like more than a day, and if you notice any spotting, which CAN also be normal...but they can also be signs of something else. Please do not worry unless you start spotting or the cramps do not go away! Things like this you always want to make sure your doctor is aware of what is going on!!

  • That's exactly how I felt with my last pregnancy and this one. Not even really cramps just "that feeling" where you KNOW you'll have your period the next time you check. LOL Congratulations!
