  • I'd say it's perfectly normal, I'm 26 weeks with number 3 and have had cramps in all pregnancies. I just chalk it up to one of those fantastic pregnancy symptoms

  • I had that going on too but my doctor said that the pressure is because the baby is starting to get ready to drop and get into place for delivery. As for the cramps it could be a bladder infection. I didn't have any of the symptoms except the cramps so he checked it out and I did have an infection.

  • I would also say it's perfectly normal. Pregnancy brings on lots of pains and cramps and sensations - and as a mommy we can't help but think something may be wrong! However, when in doubt - call the doc. They are used to worried mamas so don't be hesistant. Better safe than sorry. I myself was seen twice during my pregnancy for things I thought were abnormal. Good luck!
