I am nearly 5 weeks along, and I have had mild cramping on and off which I understand to be normal, but last night I woke up to cramps so bad that my husband was dressed and ready to take me to the ER. It only lasted about 8 minutes, and then went away. Anyone else had this?? I am so worried, but my doctor said if I'm not bleeding, it can wait until my appointment which is over a week away. This is my first baby - naturally I'm freaked out!! Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you

Kelly I had cramps at five weeks and back pain. Unless you have bleeding as well you I think you are fine. Ive read alot of posts from women having the same thing and its just ligaments and your uterus stretching, so try not to worry. Im now 7 weeks and due for a scan next week.

Thanks Steph for the encouragement - I don't think I'd be that worried except for last night, the cramping just had me in tears. I just kept thinking - surely this can't be normal. But...every minute that pa__ses with no bleeding, I am very thankful. Guess I'll just keep saying my prayers and what's meant to happen will happen. Thanks again.

I've had the same cramps that you described. I'm in my tenth week now and they have almost gone away totally. Unless you're spotting, I think you'll be okay. Hang in there!

Hi... I am coming up on 8 weeks. I have had cramping since my period was suppose to start last month. My doc. says its normal as long as its not a piercing pain and bleeding. She also suggests laying on your left side. I have had cramps on and off since day one. Just monitor them. Good luck and Congrats.

I am 8 weeks pregnant, and I just had the same thing you described happen last night. It came out of no where, and lasted about 8-10 minutes, and then just went away totally. I have had no bleeding either, and once it went away there were no other signs. It really hurt and I was also in tears, I was minutes away from calling 911, but then it stopped. This is my first baby too, and it really freaked me out. I am worried, and my next appointment isnt for another 4 days. I called my doctor, and they just told me to drink more water, and rest. Unless I start bleeding, or it comes back and persists to go to the ER. I have had 2 friends recently get pregnant and they both had miscarriages. I am so scared. I feel your pain, but dont have any good advice for you either, but at least you know you are not the only one it happened to.

I have had severe lower back cramps and low tummuy cramps as well up to my 8th week then my body seemed to go back to normal. My docter a__sured me this was normal, could be caused by your round ligaments strectching or gas believe it or not, as your body adjusts to the new hormones
