  • Not really sure what it could be, but I do that too.
    Like sometimes I have to go to the bathroom just to check and make sure I didn't, cuz it'll feel like I just did.

  • I think its normal the cramps are just from your insides being moved around im 37 weeks and feel like that but i think mine are more towards contractions

  • It's normal. A lot of pregnancy symptoms are really similar to period symptoms, if you haven't already noticed. The entire time I was pregnant last time (the pregnancy only lasted two months) it felt like I was going to get my period any day.

  • I experienced that too, so I would say its normal, but if you are concerned you should call your doc

  • Are you in pain? If you are, you may have pulled the muscles around your tummy. I did that with all my pregnancies, it hurt a lot! I ended up on bedrest because of the pain.

  • As long as there is no bleeding and no diarrhea, you're probably fine. Cramping during pregnancy is normal. (Especially if this is your first baby. The uterus stretching is not a comfortable experience.) You can call your OB and run in for a quick check if that eases your mind, but more than likely it is just normal uterine stretching. (The baby hits a massive growth spurt around that time. Your belly is getting bigger by the minute, it seems. That does not make for a comfortable mommy.)
