  • It can be very normal! Your uterus is already growing! If they intensify or you you obgyn. Otherwise, I hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months!

  • normal. it's the hormones and your uterus growing. if you experience any bleeding with the pain then i'd be sure to contact your doctor asap. it's called "round ligament pain"

  • I dont think its ligament pain yet... it could be implantion, which can also cause cramps this early. but it is normal.

  • I had round ligament pain very early, but there were no cramps. It was a pulling pain. That was with my second pregnancy. With my first I had sore abdominals around 6-8 weeks as my uterus actually stretched my muscles out of shape from the inside. It felt exactly like I had done too many sit-ups for about a week to 10 days, but again no cramping. From what I understand cramping is very normal.  It may be from the increase of fluids rushing to build a placenta.  Good luck and have fun.

  • I had severe cramping in the beginning of the pregnancy. I thought I was having another miscarriage but turns out it was normal to have cramping so early in pregnancy. I also had implantation bleeding which did freak me out but it turned out it was nothing. Good luck!
