very early mamas, are you crampy? - Page 2

post #21 of 27
I started spotting just a tiny amount last night, and have been fairly crampy all day (especially on the right side). So I called the midwife this afternoon-I was not scheduled to see him for the first time until January 14th. ( I am 5 and a half weeks). When I told him my symptoms he told me to come in tomorrow morning! So, now I am really nervous...I thought I was just being anxious, but now that I know the midwife is concerned...well, I am scared.

For those of you with the normal "growing pain" cramps. Going pee can help relieve them. The pressure from a full bladder can aggravate that growing uterus.

Trying not to jinx it, but my cramps seem to be getting better...now it's only if I do a little too much activity, but if I take it easy they are very very mild and few and far between.

Although I did wake up this morning with a freaking big painful Bartholin gland cyst. OUCH! :

I suffer from the bad cramps too and the nurse told me they were completely normal. She said they usually last through week 9 and its just your body trying to get use to a new addition. I almost called 911 mine were so bad the other morning. Just hang in there, drink plenty of water and take it easy.

Oh yeah, she told me to take it easy too (I'm a VERY active person). I noticed that once I lounged around and relaxed, I felt much better.

Thanks AKA, that's good to know.

The cramping isn't worrying me so much now...just have to get past the 1st trimester and maybe I can relax a little. That's a looooong way away!

Hey Ladies!

5w1d, 22dpo, and definitely a little crampy for the last week or week and a half, similar to light period cramps but not as bad. It's good to hear I'm not the only one.

(Also, a due date club! wow!)

I noticed that peeing helped. it makes sense that it's pressure from the bladder on the uterus.
