cramping during pregnancy??

hello. i have a question about cramping while pregnant. well i am only 5 weeks along, about two times a week i get lil cramps that make me stop and sit for a min, well last night i had sex for the first time since i got pregnant, i told my fiance i was feeling really good, but then it started gettting tight. i told him to stop and the 3 mins later i could not move. it got so bad i started crying and i could not move for 20 mins, it felt like my uterus was contracting. so i had my fiance bring me down stairs to take a shower and i started getting dizzy and fainty. i had to sit down, and then right after that i went up stairs and started getting better, this was after an hour. i had NO bleeding but it felt like evreything inside me was going to fall out. is this normal?

cramping in early pregnancy is normal. it's the uterus starting to grow, congrats on your pregnancy, enjoy the next 9 months

Not sure about that, I couldn't have sex for the first 3 months, due to bleeding, so maybe talk to your Ob about it. maybe refrain from sex until the 12 week mark to be on the safe side.

Any time you have severe pain like that you should see a doctor. I had severe pain like that with an ectopic pregnancy AND with a normal pregnancy. It's always better to be safe than sorry. You can always call the doctor and get their opinion on if you should be seen. They won't mind the call. Hope you are feeling better!
