I know that cramping in the first trimester is normal; however, my cramps have completely subsided, except when I am active.
I am a teacher and am trying to get my classroom in order. I had cramps after. I did not do any heavy lifting. I just moved things around for a couple of hours.
This morning, I had to work in a preschool classroom. I did have to lift some kids (light ones) and I was up and down a lot. Now my back is killing me and I'm cramping.
I'm sure that these are signs that I should take it easy but I don't know how much easier I can take it and still have a job!!!
