Did you cramp in your first trimester?

I am currently 11 weeks pregnant and have not had any cramping yet. My breasts have been more tender though. My doctor said that as the baby grew, I would cramp but I have not had any yet. Did you cramp or is this normal for this early on?

  • I never cramped. I have never heard of that. I associate cramping with my period, not pregnancy. I had three kids. The only thing I noticed was when the "rectus abdominus" muscles started separating and feeling like rubber bands were snapping under my skin. My tummy grew really big,all out front. My weight was 120 pounds and I had such narrow hips that it went all out in front, like the nose of an airplane.LOL. My Doctor told me I would have permanently separated stomach muscles.
    But no cramping.

  • Yes but it wasn't that bad. I started walking when it happened and it made things better. Good luck.
