Cramping.

Idiot here wanted to give up using the internet because it scared me an I should have!

I still have cramping and I'm 7 weeks - I've scared myself because when searching this online everyone is saying it normally stops 5-6 weeks. I have spoke to my gp who said stop worrying unless you're bleeding! I can't because I'm convinced I've had a missed miscarriage.

I have no symptoms of pregnancy at all this worries me but my mum said most of our family didn't get symptoms even with twins! Still I can't relax. I also can't get a reassurance scan because the next available date I can go is 4 weeks away!

Ugh sad

Cramping like period pains sorry*

I had cramping for a long time could also be stretching that is causing the cramping. I has no symptoms and am happily 28 weeks pregnant at the moment.
Try and relax it is't good for you to worry don't get to stressed be no good for you or baby.
Think how lucky you are to have no morning sickness You will have cramping type pains throughout most of it if there is no blood then mostly likely things are going well.
And stop googling symptoms it does not help if you are worried then see a doctor.
Good Luck with your pregnancy smile

I still get it now, it's probably baby growing and stretching, lots of stuff goes on in there to accommodate baby but it's normal.

Please try not to worry, but if you need reassurance speak to your midwife x

Thank you both! Think I'll stay off the internet for the day if I can manage it xx

Don't stress I had cramping past 6 weeks and scared myself on Dr Google. I'm also no longer having symptoms apart from sickness this morning. All symptoms stopped at 8 weeks so I was convinced it was a mmc. Anyway I saw my babies kicking away yesterday and heard their heartbeats so that put my mind at rest. Loads of women have said the same on here about no symptoms. You'll be fine!

Congratulations! Please try not to worry, I had it on and off all through my twin pregnancy. Doctor said it was the womb stretching and some women have more sensitive wombs than others.

Breath, and try to relax. I had cramps until 10weeks and now at 13+3 they're still coming and going.

The best advice I could give you is to try to rest, slow down and not to push yourself.

I'm 12+4 and still have occasional cramps, they aren't as often as they were before 9-10 weeks.

I still have the occasional cramps now and I am 22 weeks. Also I had no morning sickness either, don't let it worry you when people say 'oh sickness is a good sign that everything is going well' it doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad sign if you DONT have morning sickness. Luckily I was prepared as my mum didn't find out she was pregnant with me til 6 months, so when I had no symptoms I knew it was normal for our family! Everyones pregnancy is different, I'm are you will be just fine smile

Thank you everyone need to learn to relax for atleast 5 weeks till the scan!

I think I'm going to spend the day in bed watching trashy tv - should do the trick

don't panic!!!!!! I had cramping too up to about 11 weeks. I had two miscarriages previously so I was a nervous wreck. If there is no blood just relax put your feet up and don't worry. For me the first trimester was full of cramping and it's surprising how much it hurts but your body is already going through a lot of changes. All normal smile x
