Cramps

Hello I just find out I'm 6weeks pregnant and this is my first pregnancy. Is it normal to experience cramps like your about to get a period.

Yep! With my first I had them a ton in the first trimester and scattered throughout. This pregnancy I'm 6 weeks tomorrow and have been having them again. Your body is just preparing and expanding for the upcoming months

I have them too and thought it was PMS, turns out I'm pregnant. No bleeding though. I did bleed previously and the pregnancy didn't continue itself - this was years ago

Yes, pretend your body is playing fort and you're building that home for your little one. Takes a lot of time, energy and building material. Sadly it also comes with aches and pains, I blame the support beams.

My first sign was super sore and swollen boobs like 1 week b4 my period. Then the cramps came, but I've always had super bad period cramps.. To the point where they would sometimes makes me puke.. But these were a cake walk in comparison!!!!

Glad to hear from others having cramps and know it's not unusual. I'm 5 weeks and have had moderate cramps all this week.

I'm 33 weeks and have cramped the entire time. It has just got worse and worse the further I go. It's normal. No worries.
