I've been having cramping on and off today. I keep thinking I have to go #2, but...then I don't.
Last Saturday I was cramping all evening and it was very painful.
Is this a typical symptom? How worried should I be? Please reassure me!
Yes, I cried out of nowhere last night too...my poor DH. At least the work day is almost over, right?? I was just perusing the June Due Date club, and some of the posts there might be helpful. There seem to be a lot more people there too. Or hopefully someone else will weigh in soon too. Hope you can have a restful evening. And keep us posted!
Hi Staryla! I just wanted to say that I have spent the last week or so feeling like I am going to either get my period or have a bowel movement - a lot of cramping that has made me think twice about being confident about this pregnancy. That being said, I remember the exact same thing happening with my last 2 pregnancies as well and everything was fine. I think that it is just the body's reaction to the expanding uterus, increase in blood flow and slow-down in digestion. Cramping in early pregnancy is considered normal. Obviously, bleeding is something to watch for and could be indicative of a problem.
Sending lots of good vibes to you and your little bean!!
I agree with the others that it is probably pretty normal. With all of my pregnancies I experienced PMS-type cramping very early on, and knew I was pregnant when the cramping continued but AF never showed up. I'm usually done with that by about 5 weeks or so, but I suppose it could be different for everyone. If you're not bleeding or doubled over in pain, I think you're fine.
