Feeling really crampy at 5 weeks 1 day pregnant! Is this normal? Should I be concerned?

I've been cramping off and on for a couple of days (before I even knew I was pregnant) but today I've been even more crampy than usual.

 I've had NO bleeding what-so-ever!

This is my third baby.

 Is this normal for 5 weeks when you are having your third baby?

Is it just everything stretching out or should I be concerned?

How do I know if the cramps are NOT normal and are NOT apart of a healthy pregnancy? (I've never had a miscarriage before)

  • I would call your advice nurse to ask them what they think. I don't know if this is normal or not. When I had my miscarriage, I had waves of super intense cramps. I could tell something was VERY wrong and then i started bleeding A LOT...

    Best of luck to you and your baby! :)

  • I've been pregnant twice. One was with my 4 year old dd, and the other ended in miscarriage. I had cramps both times. I personally think it's normal, but if you are worried...ask the OB, or midwife. Stress is not good for pregnancy. Hugs!

  • Thanks for everyone's responces and thanks for the advise hammomof2!!

    It has been burning a bit when I pee so maybe that's what is going on. I'll call my doctor Monday morning and if things get bad before then I'll go to the ER.

  • I cramped like crazy with both on my children from probably 5 weeks to 10 weeks on and off, and it always scared the crap out of me. My doctor said it's fine as long as I'm not bleeding. Try a heating pad on your back or take a bath - those helped me a lot.

  • I would go get checked out just in case.
