Has anyone had cramping at almost 16 weeks? The cramping is actually in my thigh where I would normally get cramps when I get my period. The cramps aren't severe but I'm not sure if I should still be getting cramps at this point.

  • Its totally ok to be getting cramps right now. Your body is releasing a lot of hormones which cause your muscles to loosen and ache (and cramp!)

    I know it's difficult to relax, especially when you are a pregnant and possibly not yet even feeling baby move- BUT- take peace of mind knowing that it IS normal. If you need someone to talk to, feel free to message me!

    *If you should have lower back pain coupled with period like cramps, call your OB.
