Hey there - twice today I have had severe cramping. First time was at about 7:30 (ET, so four hours ago) this morning. I had been kind of squatting getting DS dressed and the pain hit when I stood up. Second time was just a minute a go, I felt fine then it hit just as I stood up getting out of the car. It feels like the stiches you get when exercising after eating except it's low down and across the entire underside of my belly. The intense part of the cramp lasted about 45 seconds then gradually dissipated and was gone within 3 minutes. There was no contraction or tightening along with it but it was bad enough that I couldn't move or hardly talk - it totally took my breath away and I usually have a very high pain tolerance.
Do you think random cramps like this are just normal uterine stretching? I am not feeling any pressure or menstrual-like feelings. No blood. Would you call the MW or ignore it as random mystery pregnancy discomfort? I'm tempted to ignore it unless it keeps happening.
Thanks and hope everyone is having a great day!
Happy mumma to my boys Henny Tom (Nov 30, 2008), Arlo Odie (Oct 5, 2010), and baby SISTER! due mid-Dec 2014.
