With both my daughter and this pregnancy I had quite a bit of cramping. They felt like mild (for me) menstrual cramps. My cramps usually make it very hard to even stand up. Having had previous miscarriages it was very scary to be cramping, but I talked with my doc and everything was fine and he said cramping is normal in the beginning but if you have bleeding or severe pain on one side to go to the doc.

I am in 6th week (just did hpt today). From everything I have read and everyone I know, cramping is normal. I have cramping as I am typing this, it's hard to describe. Kind of like light period cramps but more a tugging than a twisting feeling like I would usually get. I am sure you are absolutely fine, but see a doc if you are really worried. Better safe than sorry.

I to have cramps really bad. But honestly I think half the time they are gas pockets or our baby is starting to form the umbilical cord so cramping can occur!

In my first pregnancy I cramped like menstrual cramps. That's how I knew I was pregnant as hadn't had a period for years. It's very normal indeed.

It's very normal... I'm 6 weeks pregnant n im experiancing cramps...

Cramping is normal so long as there is no bleeding. If you don't cramp that could be cause for concern. I feel at ease when I cramp because it means your uterus is slowly expanding to make room for baby. MY OB nurse said you should frel crsmping

I am 7 weeks and having the same feeling today with no spotting. Just monitor and track... this is my first baby so I understand the nerve rackingness :) keep a journal log (even on a calendar) and make a list of questions for the doc...that's helping to keep me sane..and finding this blog!
