Where abouts are the cramps are they quite low down?

I had really bad stomach ache at 11 weeks and I think it was trapped wind peppermint tea can help.

I told my midwife at my booking in visit about my stomach cramps and she said unless they are really low down like where you pubic bone is then dont worry.

It could be growing pains or twinges you might be having a growth spurt.

I would try not to worry I know its hard, I had a mmc in jan and I didnt have any pain or anything at all so the fact that your having pain with no bleeding could just be growing pains.

There is an awful lot going on in there so its bound to get uncomfortable at times.

Hope your ok x

I had cramps that felt just like period pain, but again it was digestion. I knew it was poor digestion, but it did not stop me worrying. I had lots of tummy troubles in the first 3 months - it helped to avoid fatty foods.

I also had a mc in January so I know how worried you might be. However, I had bleeding before any cramps - the cramps only started after and were pretty mild in comparison to the digestive pains! Also the initial pain was right in the centre, unlike any period pain I have had.

Kiki84 I would try and get a scan done at EPU. I had same and some spotting (though cramps weren't worse than period pains - they were similar though) and got a scan done. In fact, have had them pretty much since I got pregnant and they're not getting any better! MW says it's just 'growing pains' of the uterus expanding. Good luck.

growing pains probably, but the nurse from NHS will probably tell you to go to the hospital just to be safe.
