I felt exactly the same from about 6 weeks until 9 weeks. Awful cramps that would stop me in my tracks, accompanied by waves of hot flushes. It's just everything stretching and getting ready...I'm 22 weeks now, it does get better!

I had the cramps in the first three months of both pregnancies. Am coming to the end (33 weeks) of my 2nd pregnancy and everything has been fine. It feels as if you are about to start your period but as long as there is no bleeding don't worry.

I had exactly this with my first pregnancy. I was so nauseous and headachey I took something for migraine thinking I had very bad pmt. assumed that the terrible cramps heralded the period of all periods and stocked up on massive tampons. AF never came!

I am 7 weeks and i have been having the period like cramps since the week i was supposed to start my period!i spoke to nurse and she said this can be completely normal, its just things changing, uterus growing, ligaments expanding etc... As long as no bleeding it should be fine! Its very daunting tho, i have been very anxious! They are on an off and just feel like your gonna come on your period! Ull be fine, try not too worry! I have also had back ache and the ofd headache too! Xx

i feel horrid. I hope this headache doesn't last for 5 weeks. I'm hoping it's just a bit of a cold and not pregnancy. Taking paracetmol at 3am isn't ideal : (

I didn't have the cramps but I did have a banging headache (for 5 weeks) and feeling clammy and feverish. In fact I didn't find out I was pregnant until 10weeks as I thought I had flu or something.

Found out i was pregant on wednesday. Didn't think i was as i've been having bad stomach cramps and back ache. Also the past 24 hours i've had a banging headache and feeling clammy. i've had no bleeding or anything i just feel pooh. Anyone had this?
