  • I had pain when I peed at about 15 weeks. I don't know about the pressure and cramps. Call your doctor and ask.

  • I had pressure around then as well, my ob said it was my uterus stretching, you get increased pressure from that

  • Does it feel like your lower abdomen is bunching up, and feels a bit hard when you put your hand on it??? That's braxton hicks, practice contractions, they start about this time. I've been having them for a few weeks now myself. I am 18 weeks today.

  • Oh, and if it's more like sharp pains in one of both sides of your lower abdoman it's round ligiment pain, the ligaments stretching as your uterus streches. It's all normal. But you should still call or see your doctor so they can reassure you and feel better.
