almost 7 weeks pregnant and I have been having light cramping, pulling like pain/feelings in my lower stomach (left side). This is my second child, and I don't recall having these pains with my first pregnancy. Is this normal? I go to the dr. on 9/16, but figured maybe you guys can help ease my miscarriage concerns...

  • With my first, I cramped for the first 11 weeks. It is your pelvic muscles stretching. Unless you notice red bleeding, I wouldn't worry too much.

  • i think its pretty normal... if you aren't seeing red blood then its all good...
    could be round ligament pain or your uterus stretching or something like that... you prob need to sit and chill with a big glass of ice water and your feet propped up when you get that.
    have you been picking up your firstborn or stuff like that?

  • I had this with pregnancy and I dont remember it with my first. My doctor told me it was my uterus stretching. It is normal as long as your not bleeding. I am now 15 weeks and only once in awhile I will feel stretching. Congrats and good luck!!!
