Hi there

I am currently 7weeks pg and although I've experiences odd cramps the past few weeks today they are more persistent like stronger period pains. Not accompanied with any blood but I'm just concerned has anyone else had this x

Hi, I'm 8 weeks and I have experienced some slight pain, more like a stretching. If you are really concerned though I would recommend calling your midwife or gp just to check xx

Hi Welshy!
I am 17wks+6 days and still get cramping! It's normal because the uterus (I think that's it) is growing for the baby. I was worried but was told it was normal! Sometimes i had pains higher up and was told it was gas pains hahahahaha!
If you are worried though don't hesitate to ask your midwife !

Thanks ladies I've got my booking in appt next week so will ask then. Had a early scan a few days ago and they saw a hb so I'm hoping I'm just being a worrier. Thanks for your advice x

I had an early scan to check I was pregnant...I originally went to the docs not feeling well and he asked if I could be pregnant and I said no because I was always told I couldn't get pregnant or would struggle a lot & we were both shocked at the positive result...here I am on my 18th week and still getting some slight cramps, i am also a worrier and since becoming pregnant even more emotional and cry and stupid things hah!
Last night and today I have aches/mild cramps and just feel so poorly, I was tempted to ring my midwife but won't bother unless I feel worse.

I am sure though that if you really are worried then just ring and ask to speak to a midwife, they are so lovely and helpful.
