15 weeks pregnant and cramping alot

I am 15 weeks 2 days pregnant and I have been having a lot of cramping, feels like menstrual cramps.  It sometimeslast for a while and I even notice it while I am resting.  It hurts enough to have to take tylenol pretty often.  This has been noticeably going on for about 2 weeks now.  Should I be concerned.  This is my second pregnancy and I didn't experience this last time....which I know all pregnancies are different.  Any info would be appreciated.

Hello,

Talk to your ob or midwife about your symptoms.  It is probably related to the uterus expanding and pelvic ligaments loosening, but continue to observe how they evolve and report it to your obstetric provider.

Best regards,

Dr. Downing

How severe is dangerous when it comes to abdominal cramps... It was constant and now they come and go but they hurt..I can talk through them but they do make me cringe..I have not been spotting but I have had some discharge...this has happened the entorr time though..I talked with a nurse and she said could be everything growing or dehydration..but if it gets worse,doesn't go away, or I start bleeding to go to ER...is this all normal?
