Thanks for using the forum.

It is not unusual to have some cramping and even light spotting during the early part of you pregnancy.  Your body and uterus are changing to make room for the baby this can cause some cramping. Some women also experience cramping and light spotting when the fertilized egg implants in the uterus.
Make sure you are resting and drinking plenty of water. If the cramping becomes constant, or increases in severity, I would recommend calling your doctor.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. I hope this helps.

Light cramping is common in early pregnancy, your uterus is going through changes during this time. If cramps get worse, or you have heavy bleeding (some spotting is normal, but should NOT be enough to fill a tampon or pad) you should see your O/GYN
