  • When I was pregnant, I found out at 4 weeks. Honestly, I felt crampy all the time until the end. I'm not sure what it exactly is, but I always felt like it could be around the time I was supposed to get my period. If you start bleeding, or they get unbearable, get checked out!!!

  • If they are strong cramps, you may want to call your doctor. If it is just that crampy, PMSy feeling- totally normal. I always feel slightly crampy and PMSy my whole first trimester. It almost feels like you are about to start your period at any second and you run to the bathroom every few minutes to see if there is any blood- all that is totally normal.
