  • Well, first off, how far along are you? Are you bleeding or anything else happening with it?

  • Nope. I felt like I was having pre-menstrual cramps at 33 weeks and I was going into pre-term labor.

    Any cramps should be reported to your doctor ASAP.

    (SIDE NOTE: If you are in the begining stages of pregnancy, a lot of women have light cramping for the first month or two. That is normal. The later you are in pregnancy the less normal it is.)

  • I'm only a month. No bleeding. It just comes and goes.

  • I had cramps for the first 3 months when I was prego all 3 times so I would say it is normal. I even had 3 periods while prego though so who knows lol.
    If you are concerned talk to your doctor about it. Also try to take it easy for a few days just in case.

  • Here's a link about cramaping in early pregnancy:

    The gist is that it's normal and nothing to worry about unless it is severe, localized to one side of your lower abdomen, or accompanied by bleeding.

  • i had cramps like that for a few months, also i spotted. everything was normal. if you have really bad cramps and are bleeding like a period go to a doctor right away. You are going to feel alot of werid things though out the preg.
