Having trolled the internet I am still non the wiser! I've tested positive (but no chance to visit a doctor yet). I am experiencing. Period like cramps on and off. They can be pretty uncomfortable... But manageable without pain killers. I almost feel like a need 'the loo' more often... A heavy feeling... I also feel like I am slightly hungover - queezzy at times. This is all normal right?? It's so early I can't really ask anyone without letting the big news slip!!

I don't know if it's normal or not really, but I'm also 5 weeks (haven't been to doctor) and I'm getting cramps on and off too. Also ridiculously bloated

I think it's normal. I had them at 4 weeks and thought for sure I was coming on my period. So much so I didn't bother testing til about 5 days late.

27 weeks today. Congratulations m'love Xx

I asked my Midwife at my first appointment when I was 5 weeks about the cramping I was experiencing. She told me it was normal as long as I wasn't bleeding.

I'd say normal. I'm 33 weeks and still getting this. had It on and off all the way through! x

Sounds about how I felt, so I'd say normal.

If no bleeding I wouldn't worry.

Hi I've just found out I am 4 weeks pregnant. I also keep getting cramps.. and as soon as I've been toilet it goes. But they can come back within 20 mins and I need the toilet again and again the cramps will go again. Good luck with ur pregnancy and try not to worry. Xxx
