What's "normal" cramping? Without sounding stupid. This is my first pregnancy. I think it may just be gas cramps. (Sorry maybe tmi) but I dont feel good.

My cramping always felt like period cramping. I had pretty bad cramping from about 25 weeks until I had ds, I was always worried something was wrong but my OB always said it was normal and was round ligament pain.

If you're starting to feel like you have some pretty bad period cramps and they don't go away within a few hours, or if they get worse, head on in to L&D. It could be nothing, but if it is something, it's a good idea to get checked out just in case.

My entire tummy gets hard. Then I feel him kicking like normal. The first oney tummy was hard for about 30 seconds to a minute then it went away. About 10 mins later happened again only it is was shorter. I just dont wanna feel like an idiot if its normal. :(

You might be dehydrated and not realize it. Try drinking some water and putting your feet up.
Your stomach getting hard is normal, those are called braxton hicks. If you keep having cramps and it's timeable, go get checked out.
