  • Yes...mild to moderate cramps are common during early pregnancy. They feel like a mild ache and sometimes like menstrual cramps. If they become severe or are accompanied by bleeding, this is a bad sign. Otherwise, you're good. It's just your uterus stretching to make room.

  • Yes, it is stretching, as long as you are not bleeding, you are ok. If you start spotting or bleeding, go to the ER.
