I'm only 5 weeks - but I've been having cramps on both side for 2 weeks - thoughts???


seems like implantation should be over and seems too early for round ligament pain - am I wrong??

I had random cramping around that time too, post-implantation.  And it was nothing like the round ligament pain I got later.  My understanding is that cramps are totally normal, but if you have red bleeding you need to go in and see your doc.  Brown or light pink discharge is usually fine.  But cramping alone doesn't indicate a problem.  If they get back or are accompanied by bleeding, call your doc for reassurance.

I'm 9 weeks and the cramping comes and goes. It's always mild, but was particularly prevalent at around 3-6 weeks. It's probably just your uterus stretching. It's normal smile.gif

I'm 11 weeks and 3 days and I have had some cramping the whole time which sort of felt like mild period cramps. Unless they get severe, are on just one side, or are accompanied by bleeding, it's perfectly normal.
