  • At that point it could be from cramps, or just your body adjusting to being pregnant. If they are bearable and don't continue almost constantly then I wouldn't worry about it. However, if they become unbearable and don't stop or you have any bleeding be sure to call the doc.

  • Everything is moving around and getting used to growing baby. You will feel a certain amount of pulling or cramping in your first and last trimester. If it is unbearable (like menstral cramps) then have your doctor check you out and assure you it's ok...

  • I am 5 1/2 weeks pregnant and have been having cramps for almost 2 weeks now, it's very normal, I had it with my first too. If it becomes really painful make sure you contact your Dr.

  • With both my pregnancy (when I was in my first trimester) I got alot of cramps and all kinds of pains in my pelvic are, sides, back you name it I had it. Anyways it was worse with my first, because my body wasn't used to all the changes it was having to go through. Anyways as all doctors will tell you as long as there's no bleeding your probably fine. Also my docs told me to drink lots of water and take some tylonal (make sure your doc says it's fine before you do.) And always keep them informed on how you feel just in case something pops up and they aren't taken off gaurd. Hope things get better for you! =)

  • I felt crampy for almost 2 months after becoming pregnant. The cramps felt similiar to when I was going to start my period. I don't know why that happens, but it did happen to me.
