I am not a medical professional at all, so take it for what it is worth...

I found out at about 7 weeks along that I was pregnant and I did have some minor menstrual type cramp feelings for a few weeks...everything was fine though!

Hope that helps, but if you are worried, I would seek some help...

Hello!!!!and congrats!!I am about 4 or 5 weeks as well and I've had a bit of cramping. How are you feeling? Do you have nausea. I feel hungry and tired. Anyways I hope that cramping eases up.

Congratz! I just tested positive today as well... there must be something in the water here! LOL

I woke up thinking I was going to start my period as well. Last night I had a little bit of cramping, went poopy 3 times, was slightly sick to my stomach (which usually happens when I am hungry, tired or about to get AF). I have also been very tired the last few days, I felt like I could pass out in the middle of the day. I even took a 3 hour nap with DS and I wanted to pass out at 8pm.

As far as the cramping it could be implantation, which could cause some spotting as well. Especially if you had it with your previous pregnancies.

Totally normal for cramping early on. I was also POSITIVE I was going to start my period when I got my + test. I kept on cramping for a few weeks, and had some mild spotting around week 8 or so.

Now I'm in my third trimester with a baby who loves to kick me in the ribs!

Hang in there and try not to worry too much.

Congrats to ALL the new BFPs!!!

I thought for sure I was going to miscarry! But I didn't! It was feeling like I would start anyday! But obviously I have started in months! I even got some spotting! So good luck! Hope you don't drive yourself nuts like I did! :LOL

Omg I had so much cramping my entire 3rd & 4th weeks! First I thought I was going to start af, then I was totally convinced I had an ectopic pg! Thankfully it all turned out fine, it was just my muscles & ligaments stretching (this is my 3rd & I had never experienced pain like that with my other pgs!).

Congratulations peacefulmom!!!! :

Same here! I cramped pretty bad in the beginning. It didn't last long and if I sat down it eased the pain.
