Hi Heather. I get cramps on and off. More so in the afternoon to the evening. This is my 4th baby. I am guessing and hoping it is just my body being stretched out. Sometimes they concern me. I have not talked with my doctor about them. I am not having any bleeding with them. I am 18 weeks. How far along are you?

Hi, Heather...I'm 29 weeks and I still get them occasionally. My doctor said that, as long as they're not severe and not accompanied by heavy bleeding, they're perfectly normal. I'm sure you're fine!

Hi Ladies, I am 18 weeks I only get the cramping when it is time for my Menstral, but sometimes they are strong.
Very uncomfortable.

Hi Heather...I also have had cramps since the very beginning and I'm 15 weeks. This week has been pretty uncomfortable. I get cramps under my ribs and they are painful. They are not accompanied by any bleeding so I'm not too worried. I'm sure you are ok.

I am 16 weeks and starting lastnight I have had cramps around the lower abdomen and more off to the right side. It gets worse right when I'm done peeing (tmi, I know) It doesn't feel like a UTI and it doesn't cause a lot of pain, but I am worried. No bleeding though.

3rd baby and lately I have been having what feels like mentrual cramps that also radiate around my back. They hurt pretty bad, but go away after like 10 minutes.

I am 18 weeks and have been getting pains in the lower abdomen in the morning which is like when you have not been for a wee for ages but worse. The pain is still there for a while after going to the toilet.

I had really bad menstrual cramps spot on 16 weeks and it woke me up in the night and lasted the next day and on ond off for a couple of days after that. I am now 17 1/2 weeks and am concerned abou them.

Anyone else have them and then have a healthy baby?

I had cramping in the 3rd, 4th and 5th month of my pregnancy, they have died down now but the doctor said that the cramping and the pain that I was feeling was my skin stretching from the baby growing and also all your insides getting pushed around by this baby to make more room for itself for growing.
