Cramping ~*CountryMom*~ 4 kids; Hopkinsville, KY, United States 1404 posts

Okay so I'm like 9/10 weeks, still not sure on a exact week, but is cramping normal, I don't mean like a small cramp here and there, but cramping like a period, but worse? I've been cramping for the last hour and I'm hurting. I'm not bleeding, and all is normal other then that.

As long as you aren't bleeding its most likely normal but if you are concerned call your doctor! I'm pregnant with my 3rd and I've had horrible period like cramping/pain/tightening with this one since like 16 weeks.
Hope everything is alright!

Thanks, I remember cramping with my others but... Phew this is starting to get uncomfortable. It's also the time when my period is due too. Or when it was to start if I wasn't pregnant

I noticed my cramping seems to get worse and worse every time I get pregnant, I swear. But every person is different. If it really starts to worry you, go to the doctor just to make sure everything is okay. Would probably help to put your mind at ease.

Ahh. Well, I wouldn't worry too much right now. I actually just got my BFP July 9th(2 days before my AF was due). I had some bad cramping on the day AF was due but never start or spotted. It's starting to taper off now. The cramps can get bad but they don't last very long. I kept thinking that I didn't remember the cramps being this bad the last pregnancy, but I also remember I thought the same thing with my last pregnancy lol.

Welcome to my neck of the woods! I've had lots of gas and constipation that has cause my stomach to cramp sooo bad. If its too bothersome try a heating pad on your back.

I feel the same way. I am 20 weeks., and this is my second pregnancy. I even posted on here a while back asking if this was normal but no one responded. I talked to my midwife and she told me that it is your ligaments etc... things have been stretched out already. In my thoughts, one would think that due to previously stretching/ growing that your body would be used to it and do the opposite ... adapt to the cramping much more easier, but apparently not. As long as there is no bleeding you are fine ... if things become extremely concerning then make a dr.'s appt. A little reassurance can help you feel better about the whole thing if you are a little anxious about it :D
