  • I had this in the beginnin of this pregnancy, i just thought that my period was going to be late. I had been under a great deal of stress. Not to worry, everything is fine as long as you are not bleeding with the cramping.

  • It may be just the uterus stretching to make room for the baby, but if the cramping gets worse and you have any sort of bleeding you should go to the nearest ER or call your Dr. In the first 12 weeks is the scariest weeks..thats when you are at greater chance for a miscarriage. Good luck !

  • It is pretty normal for mild cramping as long as there is no bright red spotting/bleeding.

    I see you are new here so I wanted to let you know that all caps is considered shouting! congrats on the pregnancy. :0)

  • i had some cramping with my first pregnancy and my second i miscarried my first so when it happened with my second i was doubly concerned. i now have a beautiful baby girl. cramping is normal its just your body stretching to make room for that lil bundle growing inside you. as long as you are not spotting or bleeding theres usually nothing to worry about

  • I done the same thing and was scared to death, I thought I was having a tubal. But i went to the Dr. and they gave me an ultrasound and I had a cyst. They said that you can get a cyst in the ovary that you ovulated from. It eventually went away. Don't worry unless you start bleeding bright red blood!
