For those of you further along, how long did they last?

I'm 8w5d and haven't had any for a few days, but I've read they go up to 12 weeks.

I haven't had any since 6 weeks or so...but that might actually be a bad sign in my case. And they were never actually AF-like for me, but my AF cramps are stay-in-bed-all-day-because-I-can't-even-walk bad. Obviously if you have cramps that are _that_ bad when you are pregnant, it's not a good sign.

Mine started to ease off around 6 weeks and I don't think I've had any since about 6 1/2. I've heard they can last the whole trimester for some people though.

It's the weirdest feeling, isn't it? I mean, you've got the sore boobs, and I even have the pimples to make myself keep checking my pants!

I'm so glad to hear that I am not the only one experiencing this! I had never heard of cramps during pregnancy and it was kind of freaking me out.

First pregnancy-None
Second-Tons until about 10 weeks (To the point that I was SURE I was miscarrying)
This time-They started at 5ish and have stopped by 8.
Everything is so different every time!
