I'm sure this question has been asked a million times. I am 6 weeks and 1 day pregnant. First baby...I have been cramping on and off for a couple of days. Nothing too painful. Almost like I would be getting my period. Just wondering if that was normal or something bad. Thanks!

  • absolutely normal :)

    your uterus is growing and its doing it very fast. thats whats causing the cramps :)

    sometimes it gets worse, sometimes women dont feel anything at all. I had those cramps too. feels like youre getting your period.

    All good :) congratulations :)

  • Normal form what I have heard from docs/books and other mothers. I did not cramp with my first. I am now almost 12 weeks and had some crmps in my pelvic area ...all normal.
