  • I wouldn't be worried it's totally normal to have them in early pregnancy, One of my best friends is pregnant about 7 weeks, but she had been cramping before she found out she was pregnant and still does cramp. Her doc said it was normal it was just her uterus stretching. :)

  • Im almost 14 weeks and I still cramp, it feels like menstrual cramps. Some of them are pretty bad. The doctor told me not to worry because my uterus is pushing up on all of my organs and moving them around so of course its not gonna feel to well, I wouldnt worry if you dont have any bleeding
