Having cramps but don't know if its a bad thing or not?(only 15 weeks)

I have been having stomach cramps for the last 2 1/2 months and I am only 15 weeks pregnant. Pretty much I have been having cramps sense I found out that I was pregnant. My concern is that I am having major cramping right after I have any sort of food, but I did have these kind of cramps when I was pregnant with my son but it was only after spicy foods. I also have a back problem, short version my back pinches my degestive system so I was thinking it was that. Its embarrassing but right after I go to the bathroom (runny poop) I normally feel alot better the only thing I might feel like doing is throwing up witch is normal in a pregnancy. Like I said my concern is the cramping after every meal but no other time, I just want to know is it ok that I am having these cramps?(my husband thinks sense I barely had any of these types of cramps with our son that I am having a twins or at least a girl, that is what he really wants)

  • Never be embarassed to ask your OB/GYN any questions you have. They may be able to give you relief from your symptoms right away. CALL!!!! It's not only concerning you but another developing little person.

  • Do you notice it after eating gluten ?

    Someone on my board was having problems with wheat, and I suggested she should look into celiacs, then I thought I saw something about "pregnancy celiacs," like it makes the symptoms show up more....

    I may be way off on this theory, but maybe ?

    I had trouble digesting chipotle when I was pregnant last time...LOL
