I am a little worried about this. I am 12w3d. Can cramping without spotting be an indication that a miscarriage may happen at this point?
But anyways....it just feels like a mild period, that unmistakable period cramp feeling. I am already starting to have a bulging belly, and this is towards the bottom of the round bulge, I think.
I read it can be the uterus stretching??? Or ligaments stretching? BUT, I wasn't finding much to say you can expect this feeling at 12w. Everything I'm reading about period-like cramps says it happens early on during implantation, or later on, like 16 weeks and on, for the stretching of ligaments and such.
I do think my uterus is expanding upwards, because my belly shows it, so maybe that can cause cramping to happen even this early???
Also, I have felt this feeling like my muscles and ligaments ARE being stretched, or something under the skin is stretching, but is a different feeling than cramps. I can feel something right under my skin stretch as my belly bulges. BUT, that feeling is much higher up than these period-like cramps, and it's at a different time of day, so I am getting worried they are unrelated.
I just need reassurance!!!!!!
Anyone else have period cramps at 12 weeks and everything was okay? I had it yesterday too, maybe one other day this week.
I am a little paranoid the low period-like cramps could be the coffee I'm drinking, and could be bad. Thoughts??
