Cramping And Muscle Soreness

I am now about 7 weeks pregnant for the first time, so I feel like I'm walking blind here! Last night I suddenly started experiancing extreme cramps in my lower abdomen, however, there was no bleeding, spotting, etc. It lasted for about an hour, after which time I was finally able to fall asleep. This morning, my stomach muscles feel sore, similar to when you had a really hard ab workout the day before. My health insurance doesn't start for another two weeks...is this something I should go to the ER for? Thanks for the help!!!

Hi! I'm about 33 weeks pregnant with my first and I felt the same thing you are feeling right now. That was actually one of my first signs of pregnancy; feeling like I had just done a million crunches. I think it's just things getting stretched already and your body preparing to carry around that little one for months, but if you're having sharp pains you might want to call your doctor. And if you get ANY bloody discharge or spotting, call right away. I might call anyway just to talk to someone about it, if it would relieve your mind. Two weeks is a long time to have to wait when you're not sure about something. And don't worry, you "walk blind" the whole pregnancy! :) It's very fun and exciting, but can get us ladies freaked out about every little thing from baby movements to discharge! lol Hope I was some help and that everything works out! Good luck!
