I am lonly 5 weeks pg., but I am having AF-like cramping still. It's not severe or anything, it pretty much feels just like AF...maybe a bit lower, closer to the pubic hair line. Is this normal, or should I be worried? Why am I having these cramps?

When I first found out I was pregnant, I was 4 weeks. That week, i had what my RE called implantation cramping, where the embryo keeps enbedding further and further into the uterine wall. It felt like AF cramps to me and I actually had to take deep breaths it bothered me so much. After a week, they pretty much subsided, but I still got crampy on and off for a week or two after. The cramp came and went in like a minute or so. Nothing was constant. It is normal, try not to worry. I am now 11 weeks. Good luck!

So I should look at it as sort of a good thing?

It is normal-ligaments are stretching and stuff. I had cramping my entire first semester and had no problem! I was told by my OB that it is pretty normal. Now if you are cramping AND bleeding, then you have cause for alarm and should call the doctor immediately!

I am also 5-6 weeks pregnant, i just found out last friday and my life has been a blur ever since. Like you I have had mild cramps which are pretty scary. This morning I work up and my b___bs didn't hurt any more and I was having cramp like pains. This is really freaking me out, but having read this forum has actually really rea__sured me. and wiredly enough my b___bs are aching agin! I think we should keep thinking positive thoughts and accept that this sort of thing is normal. Good luck. xx

That is another thing that worries me...I have absolutely zero symptoms (besides the cramping every now & then). My bbs are not the least bit sore, I'm not sick to my stomach...nothing. I still don't know if I should be thankful or worried!!

BE THANKFUL!!! Some people are just lucky enough not to get these symptoms.

At only 5-6 weeks pregnant, you may not have symptoms yet...just wait. If you don't get any, your lucky, but it's pretty early, your gonna have to wait and see!! My last pregnancy I had terrible morning sickness, this pregnancy I have had none. It's been great!!
