I am 9 weeks and have had severe cramps, like period cramps since i was 3 weeks. I thought something was wrong but my dr a__sured me it was normal, she said that in a first pregnancy you tend to get worse cramps because you're uterus isnt used to having something in it. The books arent very helpful when it comes to explaining it but those books are talkign about text book pregnancies which most ppl dont have.

Hi I am 9 weeks due Oct 2 2005. I had cramping also. The doc told me once they are mild and come and go it is ok. It is the uterus growing with the baby. I have been reading lots of books and these posting are really helpful, I dont feel alone. Pregnency symtoms are like crazy. I got to see my baby and baby's heartbeat at 5 weeks It was a beautiful experience. Cant wait for the next doctors visit to see what is happening. Good luck ladies and congrats.

Same thing here. 5 1/2 weeks pregnant. Cramps come and go, about 10 times a day (just like a period) + back ache, also coming and going with cramps. Glad it's normal - won't see the doctor until the 17th of march... Thanks for your postings.

its not cramping it is your uterus stretching. it goes awya, I had it for a week or so, but my doctor said that it was just stretching.

thhank god for this site, i'm glad i'm not the only one with this cramping... had bad cramps , 2 neg tests, when i looked at them later they had in fact turned positive, i see neg after a min and threw them out... had a pos today!!!yipee... 4 weeks today, early days and have scan in 2 weeks coz of previous history(2 miscarrages and 1 eptopic) the pains are pretty bad , i think its a mixture of period like pains and irritable bowel and trapped wind) hope these pains don't last too long, although i feel releived now that i know most women get them.
