I'm 4-5 weeks along and I woke up with severe cramping this morning?

There wasn't any spotting, but I was wondering if this is normal?

  • I had period like cramps in my first pregnancy. They may be normal but if they start getting unbearable I would go see a doctor.

  • I had that problem when I first got pregnant, I thought it was normal. So I ignored it, then after like two days of the cramping I started to bleed and miscarried. So I would call your doctor and just make sure everything is ok>

  • I had a lot of cramping too not severe but normal period like cramping. My Dr said it is just your uterus stretching

  • I had cramping a day before I miscarried as well. Back in June its a very unhappy time to go through that.I hope thats not your situation.Good luck!

  • I had HORRID cramps with my DS and he was perfectly fine. It's the uterus stretching out.

    With my 3rd baby when I miscarried I didn't have horrible cramps until the bad bleeding started.
