Cramping at 12 weeks?

I was 12 weeks yesterday (scan is on Tuesday) and today I've had period like cramping. Until this point I haven't had any cramping in this pregnancy. IS this normal or should I be worried?

Cramping is normal. Everything is growing and stretching to fit round your growing baby.

I had cramping throughout my pregnancy with DD1 - from beginning to end. Hardly anything with DD2.

When I told the MW she said it was normal and you only need to be concerned if there is blood or continuous stabbing-like pain.

If you are concerned then call a midwife but it's pretty common smile.

Thank you. That's just the kind of reassurance I needed. Can't wait for Tuesday's scan.
