More crampy with each pregnancy?

Thread Starter 

Does anyone else experiencing this?


This is my third pregnancy and I am super crampy sometimes, more so then in my previous pregnancies. I was a little crampy last pregancy but this one is so much more.

I am definitely more crampy this time but as I have gotten closer to the 2nd trimester the cramps are not as painful or often.

This is my 3rd as well and I'm more crampy for sure. My uterine ligaments are also feeling sore and strained already when I walk a long time.

Not so crampy, but cervical soreness, and what feels like braxton hicks already. I guess the body gets a bit worn out with all the pregnancies.

I have not had much cramping, but a lot of stretches esp when i sat and then get up suddenly, it feels like a lot of stretching. This is my 3rd.

This is my 12th pregnancy, 8th pregnancy to get to 12w, and I have 5 living children.  I had almost CONSTANT cramping and aches and pains for the first 9-10w.  I described it as the aching was almost where my uterus was cradled (like where it was sitting in there) and it hurt 24/7.  I've decided my "high risk" Dr's office sucks though and no one could ever tell me why it was hurting OR why I had bleeding.  Needless to say, it sucks, and it's scary.  The pain after is WAY worse too :(

So glad I'm not the only one!  I've been having tons of cramps and I could have sworn I was having braxton hicks last night and it scared the crap out of me.  This is my 4th pregnancy, but I'm only 10 1/2 weeks.  Maybe it's normal, I hope.

This is only my second pregnancy but I'm also more achy and crampy than I was with DD. You know that sensation when your abdominal muscles really tighten up and your stomach feels like a steel drum (I have lots of padding but it's unmistakeable)? Well I had that starting in the mid 20 weeks with DD. I've already had that twice with this pregnancy and I'm just 9 weeks! Maybe it's just subsequent pregnancies that our bodies respond to earlier/easier... Or maybe it's just that we are older lol.

It is reassuring to know so many of us our experiencing this and I know I am not totally abnormal lol.

Wow, I am so gad someone brought this up!  I was so worried.  This is my sixth pregnancy and I have been so crampy.  I don' remember anything like this this early before.

Along with the cramps, I have been feeling Braxton Hicks for a few weeks now too. It's worse when I haven't had enough to drink and get a bit dehydrated

My 6th pregnancy too. I'm not feeling crampy so much as lots of round ligament pain. Especially when getting up from a sitting position. Ouch!
