It honestly just depends on what you mean when you say slight abdominal pains. It could be anything from round ligament pain due to your stomach stretching, or it could be contractions or any number of things.
How far along are you? Where is the pain at specifically?
It's normal. It's your body adjusting to the pregnancy. The uterus is stretching and preparing for your baby to get bigger.. At least that's what I was told! I get them too. I am 8 weeks pregnant. But, ask your doctor, no matter what anyone else says, just to be sure you know what you're dealing with!
Thanks guys! And I'm only 5 weeks.
As long as there is no bleeding accompanying the pain, you will be okay. I'm 12wk tomorrow and still experience cramping like pains in my belly.
Cramping in early pregnancy is totally normal. Just watch out for excruciating pain and bleeding/spotting.
