@Tutti80:  Congrats on the new pregnancy!!! Im happy for you!

And Im sorry for your loss 🙁

Those period like cramps are totally normal. How far along are you? Im today 6+2 and I havent had cramps in a few days, but every now and then I still feel a short, sharp pain on the sides. Until a few days ago I had super sore abs lol! Without working out. I can literally feel my body preparing itself for the baby.

Again, congrats!

Cramps are normal, baby is nesting in there and your body can feel it.

When I was pregnant with my oldest I knew I was pregnant but got my period anyway.  I had horrible cramps and severe bleeding.  I actually thought I miscarried.  Fortunately I didn’t, but bodies are weird, every pregnancy is different and the cramping you’re feeling could just be the embrio attatching to the uterus.  The first few weeks of the pregnancy are when your body doesn’t know what its doing so you may get spotting, bleeding, cramping, bloating etc.  Its like a limbo period where you think you have it, you think it may be coming but it doesn’t.

I wouldn’t worry about it unless you have severe cramping and bleeding then I would see your doctor.  Other than that just enjoy the wonders of pregnancy.
