  • For me I had period like cramps and talked to my dr and she said it is normal...but I guess it depends on how bad the pain is for you...if your worried you should either go in or call the hospital and speak to somone in the L&D area and they will tell you what is best to do.

  • Cramping is normal. A lot of women have it. Bleeding is not if you start bleeding get seen. It doesn't mean you are miscarrying but it needs to be checked out. If the pain is worse than normal period cramps and it is constant for a couple days I'd see a doctor. It could be an ectopic pregnancy.
