  • I felt the same way with my second, and I don't normally even get cramps for my period. The only thing I ever did was a heating pad on low and some Tylenol when it got really unbearable. It eventually went away after a few weeks.

  • I'm just getting over them now. I'm on my first and I'm now 5 weeks and 2 days. I just kept my hands on where I had the pain to keep it warm and if it got unbearable, I took a warm shower. Then I had a hard time sleeping from the cramps so I took 1 Tylenol PM instead of 2 and slept just fine. I think it had to do with constipation, but I'm not sure. Since I started eating foods rich in fiber, they slowly got better and I've been cramp-free for 3 days now.
