I know I should know this by now (isn't it crazy how much you forget between babies?) but is it ok to have cramping at 5ish weeks? It feels just like AF cramps, both in the front and my lower back, but no spotting or bleeding at all. You'd think by the 3rd one I'd quit worrying about things like this. lol

not only normal, but perfectly healthy!<br><br>
only need to worry if it is accompanied by bright red bleeding.<br><br>
I cramped from 15dpo until about 10 weeks... and at 22 weeks I still cramp up now and then!

Had it with my first two, and I do with this one as well. I swore up and down AF was coming. 5 days late I finally tested. And I still feel it on and off!

Yep, I'm "5ish weeks" also lol and get the crampy feeling. I've had it for a few weeks (I think it started right around my BFP, which was when I was about 3 1/2 weeks pregnant). Totally feels like AF cramps (front and back). Actually, I remember with #2 taking ibuprofen, thinking AF was coming....then getting my BFP a few days later. So this time, when I started feeling the cramps, I reminded myself to hold off on the ibuprofen, in case it was pregnancy related instead of AF related. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I don't remember with my first, but yes, I did have it. It seemed to stop recently, and I think I am at 6 weeks
