Just found out I'm pregnant today...

...and I am somewhat suprised. I have been having mild period-like cramps for about a week. Haven't been to the doc yet, so I am wondering? Could this be an indication that something is wrong?

  • Probably not. I think it's normal in a lot of pregnancies, just make sure you call if you start to bleed and cramp. Congrats!

  • If there's no bleeding and cramping, then I'd think you are fine. But hurry and see the dr. Congrats though. Is this the first?

  • cramps could just be gas. if you start bleeding with them please call the dr.

    Congrats on the pregnancy

  • Congrats!!! I had cramps and my pregnancy was fine I got a full period too before I found out.
    Your doc will know for sure though and always ask those questions. When I was pregnant I swear I asked millions of them which never before had I done but pregnancy was really new to me.
    Once again congrats and hope all goes well :)

  • Thanks, ladies, for all your support! This is our fourth, and I have never felt like this so soon in the pregnancy. I know they say that all pregnancies are different, so I am hoping that's all it is.

  • Congratulations....I am ttc. I am 8 days late....I have been having the samething to. I had the samething in my first pregnancy too. It is just your uterus stretching to make room for your growing baby.
