Cramps at 17 weeks!

This is my first pregnancy so I am not sure what to expect. I haev been real crampy the last few days. It does not last all day but sporadic through out. I called the DR this morning adn they said it all sounds normal. There is no blood so it is probably my uterus strecthing and or the baby moving too! Should I relax or go in to the dr? Has any one else been through the same?

  • I have had these cramps to and all the doc would say is it is round ligament pain and it will continue through the pregnancy as your uterus grows. there are ligaments that connect to your uterus that will stretch and grow with your uterus and cause pain as they do so....
