@pepsodiny: I have had intense cramping since before I even got my BFP. I’m still PG. It’s normal even though it sucks.

congrats on the BFP!! Cramping in early pregnancy is normal, especially in the next few weeks. I took it as a good sign that baby was settling in 🙂
BUT intense cramping on one side *could* be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. If it gets bad then it could be worth a trip to the ER to get checked – google (a reputable site) for more signs to watch out for if you think that it’s worse than it should be.

@pepsodiny: totally normal! I had a few days in first tri where I wanted to die my cramping was so bad. Now I’m 33 weeks and have an active baby who is kicking me in the ribs as I type this. 🙂 congrats and good luck!

I’m 8 months pregnant and still feel crampy sometimes. My OB says it is totally normal and caused by your uterus stretching.
I think I read somewhere that your uterus expands like 500x it’s normal size or something like that? (If that is way crazy, please blame my preggo brain….)

Thank you all so much. I am so scared. i have taken 4 tests just to make sure. this last one the line didnt show up as fast as I wanted and i almost panicked. but there it is big ol’ bright blue positive!!! I am just worried cuz my doc said that as soon as i was pregnant again i was to go in. Not to wait for the regualer 7-8 weeks. and then we would go from there. i am also Rh- so there is another thing to worry about.
