Hi! I don't usually get them in the middle of the night, but lately in the evenings is when I get crampy/stretchy. It is a definite sensation and it happens as definite times. I just lay in my bed when I can and feel the stretching!
I think it's totally normal. Especially, I think, in my experience, as I've had more babies. I don't think my first few pregnancies were as crampy as my last few.
YES! I just started noticing it the last couple of nights...I get up to pee and then within a few minutes of getting back in bed, the crampiness starts. Freaks me out! I make sure to have a few big gulps of water...I have a cold and my mouth is really dry, so maybe I'm getting a little dehydrated? But it's hard to drink a ton in the middle of the night when you're feeling nauseated
