Did any of you ladies get cramping around 4-7 weeks of pregnancy?  I don't have any spotting just cramping, but it's miserable!!!!

Unfortunately I did and I thought they were just gas pains.  Then a few days later I started spotting...and then I miscarried.  My only advice to you would be to tell your doctor.  You can never be sure unless you keep it monitored and tell your doctor.  Good luck to you...hopefully it's just normal cramping that a lot of women get at that stage...I'm sorry if I scared you.

I have cramped through my whole pregnancy off and on. I used to have really bad menstrual cramps so I just figured my body is just more sensitive to my baby forming. But don't worry I freaked out to when it happened that early but my doctor said everything was fine and I got my ultra sound and felt a lot better. I am now almost 23 weeks and still get cramps...so don't worry unless there is spotting!! Good luck to you and just relax.

I had very intense cramping from 4 weeks until about 15 weeks almost constantly. I had some bleeding in the beginning of my pregnancy and a couple other times of spotting through out the 1trimester.

I am now17 weeks pregnant and I'm contracting now (BH) more than cramping but I still do get the cramping feeling.

Cramping is normal in the first trimester as long as it's not accompanied by bleeding. However if it gets worrisome you can call your midwife or doctor for reasurance.

GOOD LUCK and congrats on your pregnancy.

completely normal--i had cramping early on and now have a healthy 2.5 month old..

ironically the pregnancy that had no cramping ended in a missed miscarriage

I am a 22 year old mommy to one, wife to an airman and a student. I am a breastfeeding, cosleeping, semi-attachment parenting, stroller pushing mama, and I wouldn't have it any other way!!!

I had cramping too. I was scared and called my doc to find out that it was normal.  She told me if I started spotting to immediately come in w/o calling.  She said to take tylenolol for the pain if it got too bad.

I cramped with both my girls the whole time I was pregnant. With my 1st when I was about 4 months I started getting really bad back aches to the point of me crying but I did cramp as well. With my 3rd pregnancy I cramped before we found out it was in my tube.
