  • yes its normal to cramp in the beginning now if its gets SEVERE and you start bleeding more than spotting, go to the dr.

  • yep had the cramps, just randomly though i think. haven't noticed any in a while (24 weeks now) so my guess is they could probably go away for you too. I still kind of expect to start sometimes too lol...guess it's one of those things you just get used to

  • Yup...i think everyone goes through that. For about the first tirmester i would inspect the toilet paper afriad i would see blood. I know they say when your uterus starts growing it pulls on ligaments and causes some cramping pain. But i feel they same way you do! If you get too worried you can always talk to your doctor about it, and remember around the time your period would come the first month, the baby has to implant in the uterus to make "its" home for the next 10 months! and that does cause some cramping, and sometimes even some spotting, but it shouldnt be more than spots!
