is it normal to feel crampy at this point?

I should not be worried, right?

I've been crampy on and off since 3 DPO and I'm pretty sure it's quite common.

see, i worry if I'm NOT crampy- feeling bloated/full and slightly pinchy is how i've felt through both previous full term pregnancies- in fact until i started getting nausea it was my only real symptom.

In a dimented way, I do tend to worry more when I feel fine. I have light cramping, have for a week. Part of it might be from my GAS! Dang, I forgot about the farts that come with pregnancy for me.

Thanks for the reminder that it's ok - I was feeling a little paranoid!

I have been crampy for about a week or so and I agree, when I don't feel any sympotms I seem to get worried about it and wonder is everything is ok in there. I also have been having really bad ligament pain on my right side. My ob said it was perfectly normal but I don't remeber it with my son.

I have also been crampy on and off. If I don't feel appropriately nauseated, I also worry - the ups and downs of early pregnancy! It can be maddening. I always come back to trusting that the right thing will happen and that nature knows what she's doing.

I've been crampy on and off, but everything seems to be going fine. I think it's totally normal.

Yep, seems to be normal. I was crampy/bloated with my first and it's the same with this one so far.

Oh, I'm so glad that this thread is active! I was wondering the same thing myself. We just found out this week that we're pregnant with our first! :
But for the last 3 weeks I've felt bloated ( I seriously feel like I"ve already gained 5lbs!) and super crampy, it didn't bother me at first, just thinking my cycle was funky this month, but once I found out I was expecting I started to worry! But it's all normal?

I'm crampy too, and I was pretty paranoid about it until now. I just found out today, and I guess I'm still waiting to get the rug pulled out from under me. Once I thought about it, I realized that I would have bet good money on getting AF when I was pg with DD.

I have been paranoid too (last month I had an early m/c at 6 weeks) because I've had some cramps this week, but it sounds like it is pretty normal. Thankfully I haven't felt any nausea or anything yet, but I am tearing up at the silliest little things all week long!

Since this is the cramping thread... I have a cramping related question.

Is it normal to have some mild cramping after a BM?
