I had lots of early cramping as the uterus stretched and changed.

As you're 7 weeks would an EPU now speak to you, or your Midwife, if you're concerned?

I had cramping at 5 weeks. So bad that I went to the dr who referred me for an emergency scan. She was concerned about an etopic.

Turned out it was all ok, a result of a cyst (where egg is released) on ovary and can be normal. It gets absorbed back in over the next few weeks. Cramping is also normal- everything settling into place, stretching, etc.

If it's bothering you I'd check with dr but try not to worry cake

Thanks ladies. I'm super early, like AF not due for another few days so I'd feel a bit daft going to the doctors. I am on medication however so I think I'll need to go see then soon...

I had really bad cramping from about 4 weeks to 10. It felt like my period was coming, I mentioned it to my midwife who put my mind at ease so maybe worth doing that for reassurancesmile x

Thank you. I'm about 3+3 so I guess it's just things starting to grow and move... But it's so unnerving
