Im freaking out a little...

I am about 5 weeks pregnant...this is my third child in the last 4 years. I have been having cramps on both sides of my lower pelvic area ..they are not terrible but they do hurt and i am worried. I called my doctor and they told me that as long as im not cramping to the point that i cant walk/stand and im not bleeding then things should be find. but im still worried. Is anyone else having cramps..they almost feel like the cramps you get before you start your period...

  • Yes, it's normal. As long as it's not severe and you're not bleeding, it's fine. There's a lot of work going on in there right now, so it's normal to have some cramping.

  • Yep its normal and in fact I think with my 3rd, 4th and 5th child they were more painful then the first two.

  • I wouldn't worry about it if there isn't any blood. I have had pretty awful cramping with both of my pregnancies (same thing for a lot of my friends as well) and we've had perfectly healthy children.
