I just got a BFP 2 days ago and I’m cautiously excited. I have some mild cramping in my lower abdomin today. I am 4 weeks 2 days along. I’m not sure if I should worry about this. Maybe it’s just because I’m constipated? This is my first pregnancy and I don’t know what to think.

I’ve had cramping since before I even got my BFP. It’s less frequent now than previous (I’m 7w) but it’s totally normal. Due to various things, implantation early on and then your uterus stretching and accomodating the changes going on later. Just watch for spotting. Brownish or small drops (the size of a dime according to my doctor) is fine, more than that and you should get it checked out.
If your cramps are very painful then I would also get checked out to be sure it wasn’t exctopic.

I have the same problem, and I think we’re going to end up delivery twins, I’m 4 weeks 4 days.
I talked to a nurse about it and she says it’s perfectly normal. Your body is just making space for the baby, therefore the muscles and ligaments around the uterus are just stretching! She said to consult a doctor it the pain gets worse or if I start bleeding.
Hope I was a little helpful! 🙂 Congrats and happy 9 months! 🙂

I had cramping (and spotting!) for two weeks, and thought I was getting my period that whole time, before I even took a home pregnancy test. (We’d been told no babies would be possible for us without medical intervention, so I didn’t really think I could be pregnant.) I continued to have cramping for weeks. Now I have a 12 year old, LOL. So in my limited experience, what you’re experiencing is normal.

I’m 4+1 and have also experienced cramping the last days. It is mostly located on the right side which makes me a little bit confused but it seems that a lot of different things can be normal regarding early symptoms. I got constipated directly after the BFP.

I had cramping (like period cramps) for several weeks. I’d say from 4w – 8w or so. If they’re like period cramps (or more mild) I’d say it’s normal. If it’s serious cramping, go to the doc.

acc to my doctor, cramping is GOOD! Means everything is stretching it out and getting ready for your first baby. I was complaining about the constant cramps to my dr, and she said that she’d be more worried if i wasn’t cramping at all. I’m 11w and it’s calming down a lot (beofre my BFP, i literally thought i was about to have the worst period ever….the cramps were horrible).
