Cramping in early pregnancy

(7 Posts)

I recently found out I am about 5 weeks pregnant (I know still early days). I have been having cramps that feel like period cramps in my lower abdomen for the past week or so. The pain is not terrible and not all the time but it is noticeable. I’ve had no bleeding and no terrible pain. Is this cramping normal? I have a drs appointment next week but don’t know if this is something I should be worried about or not.

Thanks! X

I had cramps up until about 14 weeks, I still get the odd cramps now at 22 weeks and my baby is fine smile

I'm 6+4 at the mo and have felt gentle cramps in the lower abdomen for 3 weeks probably.

@katiepage1993 I was worried about the exact same thing! I’m 9 weeks and have just had my first midwife appointment today. Told her I kept cramping like period pains but no blood, she’s said it’s perfectly normal so not to worry xx

Thabkyou all for your replies - I feel much better about it now! Can relax a bit knowing it’s normal 🙃🙃

I had pretty bad cramping from 5/6wks right up until 12wks. Definitely normal if not accompanied by any other symptoms.
