Hello, I was just wondering in anyone else out there is experiencing AF type cramps or low backaches...right now I'm at 5 wks. Just wondering if this is normal?

Hi. in my 5th week I totally thought that I was getting my AF. I had cramps, I was bloated and I had a wicked back ache. It wore off in a couple of days but apparently some women experience it throughout their entire pregnancy. I think the cramping is die to your uterus expanding. No need to worry - the cramping is normal.

Hi, I'm 5 1/2 weeks, had slight cramps before I even realised I was pregnant . Don't have lower back pain, but feel like have a very full bladder all the time (like i'm going to burst. Went to the doctors to rule out water infection, he says its may be due to my bladder expanding and pressing on my bladder? thought it was to early for that...

i mean uterus expanding not bladder (sorry)

Hi I am Due JAn 13th and I had the same symptoms.... only thing is i only cramp right before af shows and i cramped for 3 days earlier than af due date..... so i took a test. BFP. I continued to cramp on and off... it fades after a while though some women have cramping through out their pregnancy.

Hi ladies! I had cramping on and off for about a week before my bfp. This was one of the clues to me that I may be pg. Usually I only cramp two or three days straight before af, so this was unusual and they weren't as bad. Now at 5 weeks I've had a little bit of a backache off and on. Also BB's weren't sore for a week ahead of af like normal.
