Constipation & gas REALLY make the cramps painful. I’ve had these a lot. I also get stretching pains, and sharp jolts if I get up/sit down too quickly! Lots of changes.

@Mrs. Jaguar:  +1,

just last night i had excrutiating gas pains (at least thts what i think they were) I also get crampy after urinating, my midwife told me its from holding urine too long and the uterus moving back behind the pubic bone after reliving the pressure. If you have had no bleeding try not to worry.

I will warn you though just in case so you dont panic, constipation can cause a minor bleeding in the cervix if you strain to much so dont be alarmed if you do see a bit of fresh blood, I had his and thought the worse. Trust me, you will start to worry less as time goes by

You are okay, don’t worry ! Constipation will more than likely be there through out the pregnancy. If you aren’t bleeding I wouldnt worry yourself sick about it. Keep your head up.

I’m sure you’re fine!  I had terrible, period like cramps all through my first trimester (with no bleeding thankfully).  I’m happily 24 weeks now and everything is fine.  Cramps are normal, try not to worry!

Cramps are totally normal! They tell you not to worry unless they are accompanied by bright red blood. It’s usually the uterus stratching. I was freaked out by cramps too in the beginning, but everything ended up perfectly fine!

I’ve also had cramps off and on for weeks now, basically since conception. It worried me at first, now it’s plain annoying. My doctor said they’re normal and I’ve heard if you are smaller in size they could be worse during pregnancy than others who are not. I’ve been coping by using a tad of muscle rub when it gets really bad and taking a tylenol if it keeps me up at night. From what I hear, it goes away into the second trimester.

I had tons of cramps in the first trimester that worried the crud out of me.  I often found they were related to constipation issues as well so that is likely what is going on.  Try not to worry yourself too much and know that it is EXTREMELY common and normal.

I had cramps and constipation since the begining. They both went away (mostly) in the second try. But being backed up is a totally normal symptom of pregnancy (unfortunately!) 

I know I worried a lot before I saw our little wiggle worm at the first Doctor’s apointment.  When you are feeling stressed try taking a deep breath and trust your body to take care of that little baby-to-be. 🙂
