  • I agree with the first two answers... call your doctor! :)

    I had a miscarriage with my first pregnancy, but that cramping was like extremely bad menstrual cramps.. and low in my abdomen.. not in my back area. And of course there was bleeding. I also had dehydration with my second pregnancy (which ended in live birth.. my daughter is 9 1/2 months old) which caused really bad cramping and I thought I was going to have another miscarriage. Turned out all I needed was 2 bags of IV fluids and to drink 8 bottles of water a day.

    Anyway, I mean to say that it could be any number of things going on.. so call your doc to find out what's up :)

  • There is so much that goes on with your body while you are pregnant that it is so hard to say "worry" or "don't worry".. Call your OB and tell them what you are experiencing and see what they have to say.

  • Cramping this early could be cause for concern. However, it might be nothing. I got gas pains that caused cramping all through my early pregnancy.
