I think I had cramps during my whole first trimester. But it never hurts to call the doctor.

yes, my obgyn said its because our uterus is stretching and expanding. That it is completely normal as long as it’s not severe and no bleeding. I get them every now and then but don’t last more than 5 minutes.

Hey. I’m 11 weeks, and have had mild cramping on & off the last 7 weeks. I’ve heard it’s normal, as long as its not too painful or you are bleeding. But defiantly speak to your doctor if you are concerned 🙂

Totally normal 🙂 I had cramping my entire first trimester, even a little bit at the start of my second. There’s lots going on down there!

Totally normal! I had them too and it hurts. :/ My doctor told me that as long as they weren’t severe and I wasn’t bleeding- it was most likely just the uterus growing to make room for the baby. I remember it hurt 🙁 Probably cramped for the entire 1st trimester.

@dirbyden:  yes I had cramps and even light brown spotting. Everything turned out ok but you should just give your OB a call for reassurance!

Yep. It is just a growing uterus from a growing baby. Be prepared for these the rest of your pregnancy! Every time I get them it makes me smile (and wince) knowing it is just my baby growing! I am only at 13 weeks so not far ahead and I get them a TON right now. I am convinced it is a growth spurt.

You only need to worry if they are super sharp or super strong and there is red blood associated. If that EVER happens go to the hospital IMMEDIATLY. Otherwise, enjoy your growing baby. And if it still worries you, you can always call you OB for reassurance. I promise you wont be the first terrified mama and certainly not the last.
