Hi ladies. I'm actually in the August DDC, but I was hoping some of you could chime in for me.

In your early weeks of pregnancy (4-6) did any of you experience mild cramps without spotting? This has been going on for only a day, off and on, and I would like to ease my mind away from fears of miscarriage.

Thanks in advance!

I had some cramping in my 6th week and then some old blood spotting the day after.

I've had some very mild cramping with no spotting off and on for the past couple weeks. From what I gather it is quite normal and is just everything moving around in there. The uterus growing and all that can cause some cramping.

I'm one of those people with cramps all through early pregnancy. I had it with my daughter, I'm having it now, and it's really un-fun but nothing to worry about.

I had af-like cramping off and on from weeks 4-6 (1 incidence of brief spotting but that's all). It worried me every time but hasn't happened in the past 2 weeks and all seems to be well (just saw babe on u/s last night). Good luck and congrats!

I wish each of you a happy, healthy pregnancy!

Can I just say- all you ladies are my personal reassure-ers? I wanted to post something this evening about this, and here it already is!

Mine is a bit different though. I had no cramps until yesterday, and I'm cramping moderately. I don't know if it's intestinal or what, but it's in my back and on my sides. Sometimes near my belly button. I am so scared anyways, as my last pregnancy was a miscarriage, so it's good to hear that others are going through something similar.

There is lots and lots of normal cramping that goes on in the early weeks.

i've been cramping here and there, i'm relieved to hear that it's normal.

op, i had MAJOR, bend-over-and-cry cramps fpr a few days, i thought i was losing the baby, and so i started trying different things to make them stop. it turns out coffee was triggering them. so i'll have to go without my crutch, which sucks, but is so completley worth it.
so maybe something dietary is causing them?

I have some cramping sometimes but I relized it's intestinal and gas related, just really intensified with pregnancy. So it could be unrelated..

I get some twinges from the uterus rising out of my pelvis.

Not this time around, but with both of my other pregnancies, I did have some mild cramping around 5-6 weeks. My doctor said it was probably round ligament pain or gas.

Yes, I just chalked it up to my womb stretching. This is my first pregnancy, so I figured I'd have some adjusting to do.
