Hi!
If you were my patient, I would reassure you that cramping early on is quite normal.  Especially if this is your first pregnancy.  Mild occasional cramping is nothing to worry about unless it becomes severe or is associated with bleeding.  It never hurts to check with your doctor too.
Good luck!
Dr B

I would say if you are questioning anything get it checked out. I had tons of people saying oh yeah I had that. Everyone is different. Best of luck to all of you. I will be trying again.

Totally normal. I freaked out too. I had a prior miscarriage so I'm super sensitive to every little thing that happens. I've read it's because your uturus is stretching to prepare for the baby. I'm 11 weeks now and still have light cramping from time to time.

You are only 6 weeks so you should still have morning sickness. If you do that means your hormone level is high enough and the baby is fine. This is my second pregnancy and my doctor told me that the first time because I was so afraid of miscarriage. I hope this helps!

My doc said it was normal due to uterus stretching. I'm 5 weeks and I had cramping with spotting...it was due to a urinary tract infection.

Cramping during first trimester is very common. Some women experience it and others dont as well as morning sickness. Every woman is different, I suffered a MC in 2010 at 8 weeks. Had light cramps and heavy bleeding. Now I am 8 months pg with first baby. My advice to you is don't over think and try to remain as stress-free and positive as possible. This time around I've  had little to no symptoms and baby has been fine. If you aren't experiencing symptoms don't worry! Best wishes to you and baby and happy holidays :-)

I'm 7 weeks and cramping on and off. Sometimes the cramps be more severe than normal. Im going to the doctor as soon as possible. It scares me to even think of miscarriages. Some people tell me it's normal to cramp others tell me that's not a good sign. Its time to get the doctors say!!

I have a question. I'm supposed to start my period in 2 days I have been thinking I'm pregnant because I've been cramping for 7 days and feeling nauseous. I did a workout today and afterwards I had light red spotting. Its been a few hours and I haven't noticed any since. What would cause this? Could I he pregnant?

Its normal..more than likely its your uterus stretching and getting bigger. I was cramping also but as it turns out it was because I have a cyst on my ovary. But that is also normal and goes away on its own usually.

It happened to me this is my first pregnancy. Turns out its normal and one of the reason for cramps is baby growth and body adjustment for the pregnancy! Hope this helps.
