I am 7 weeks pregnant and ever since i missed my period i have had menstrual type cramping (NO BLEEDING JUST CREAMY WHITE VAGINAL DISCHARGE), back pain, leg cramps, is this normal? This is my second pregnancy! I never had any of this with my First Pregnancy and Im alittle paranoid about Twins or am I just carrying differently then i did with my first?? Any insight would be helpful. :)

The cramps are caused by your uterus stretching. Also some women get period pain type cramps around when thier period would have been due.

I am only like 4 weeks 2 days just found out and am also having low back pain? I don't know if this is normal or not?

I have been having the same pains my doctor said it was normal. This is my fourth time and it is really different. As for the twins thing I had twins the last time and I didn't have any cramping at all. This is the only one that's given me problems at least it's the last one!! We are trying for a boy!!!

Hi Kristina, I'm nearly 9 weeks pregnant with my first child, I have had cramping ever since my missed period too, exactly same symptoms you described, including back pain and cramping down thighs, I've had 2 early ultrasounds, and they said there is no problem, and bub is fine. Check with a doctor to be sure, but as long as your not bleeding, and they've checked that your pregnancy is not ectopic, than don't worry.

hi ! iam 4weeks pregnant and also having cramping... this is also my 2nd child and i didn't have any cramping with my first. but this little one iam... no bleeding either, but i tooo have white discharge..... my doctor called me yesterday and told me that the white discharge was a yeast infection... ive never had one before and i didn't really even know about it.... you too could have a yeast infection...... our systoms are the same,, maybe the cramping is becuase of an infection. when you pee is it pretty dark yellow, and not really clear? i thought maybe i had an uninary tract infection, (which i had with my first son) it could be thast maybe also... have you been to the doctor........ have you had an u/s?

I am 7 weeks pregnant, also having lower back pain and leg cramping. The back pain goes on and off. I am also having some c___pming in my stomach.This is my second pregnancy. The first first was a miscarriage. I am scared of it happening again.

Hi I just found out I'm PG, 4 weeks and 4 days :)~ I have cramps that make me run to the bathroom every five minutes like AF is coming. These do feel different than AF cramps in that they seem to go away for a bit and then come back again. This started about 7 days ago and still cramping today. Glad to know that others are feeling this too...

Ansley - March 28

I am between 5-7 wks pregnant (going to my first doctor's appt tomorrow) and I am also cramping and was worried. I am getting an ultrasound done tomorrow.

Wow, I just found out last week I was pregnant and i am having the same problems... i was concerned about an ectopic pregnancy (have Dr. appointment on thurs.) But to hear everyone say its normal, that makes me feel a little better. :)
