Exclamation Muscle Cramping

I have what feels like muscle cramps in my stomach. It mainly bothers me at night if I lay on my side. Is this normal? I just found out I am pregnant this week. I am about 6-7 weeks. Good luck to everyone else!!!!

Thanks

It is probably normal as long as it is not severe. I had cramps during the first couple months, ranging anywhere from menstrual-like pains to stretching and growth pains.

Thanks! I went to the dr. yesterday. He said everything looked good & that was normal as long as no bleeding or severe pain. Anyway they are testing my progesterone levels b/c it was low before I got pregnant. I am praying they are fine.

Hello! Angel And congrats on the baby. I had so much cramping at first that I thought my period was coming and I still have some cramping and I am 13 weeks . I would not worry unless they get severe are only on one side and theres bleeding. What you are feeling is your uterus and round ligaments expanding to make room for your growing baby. Angel if it gets real bad I would call your doctor and do what he recommends ok. Good Luck and a happy nine months

I also had the same cramping when I was pregnant. My doctor said it was the ligiments stretching as my uterus grew..... SO no worries!
