Anyone not be able to tell between cramps and gas?


I feel silly asking this. But I'm not sure if I can tell the difference between gas, constipation and cramping. I'm 9 weeks 6 days today. Lately my abdomen just feels full. Some moments I'm sure it's cramps, but then I'm not sure if it's just gas. You think I'd know the difference, but maybe I'm just being over worried. Oh, and I've had spotting for many weeks, two wonderful ultrasounds and good bloodwork, so that's all good. But my dr keeps asking if I have cramps, so maybe I'm driving myself nuts.

glad it's all working out!!,,,your cramps are normal. It's when you get severe pain then you know somethings wrong. I've had 2 misccarriages and they gave me really bad cramps, not mild ones. The uterus stretching they say is the cause of the normal cramps.. I've also got a strange hanging feeling which is wierd, down below. I think I must notice every single little twitch and pain and magnify it out of proportion!!

ur not the only one hun, i can't tell between the difference myself.. yesterday i had some cramping going on.. and i went 2 the toilet sorry TMI did a number 2, and after that i felt much better.. so i assumed it may hav been the gas in my stomach that was causing cramps. x
