Cramping at 9 weeks


Anyone else experience cramping around 9 weeks? I haven't really had any cramping since I found out I was pregnant and it just started yesterday and for a while it was really intense. I've had really bad morning sickness, and I thought that was bad. Sometimes the cramps hurt, but for the most part they're just uncomfortable. Is this normal?

I'm 9 weeks along and also have period-like cramping from time to time. It was worse around week 6 and 7 but at my 8 week scan everything looked fine and doctor said cramping is fairly normal in early pregnancy. I was also very concerned when I first started cramping but as I read more about it I found out it could be because of the expanding uterus, which needs to expand to support the growing baby and can therefore cause some cramps occasionally. I wouldn't be too alarmed although I'd mention it to your doctor. Headaches and dizziness are also common early pregnancy symptoms.

I would check with your doc, since you've mentioned they have been intense. Just to be sure

I have also had some cramping, not really painful just achey on and off. I spoke with the doctor and he said my body is adjusting to my expanding uterus (extra blood flow and water retention for baby) and not to worry unless it is accompanied by spotting or it gets worse than my regular menstrual cramps.

Try not to worry, I know it's hard because I have been worrying too.

I had this during the eighth week and got real worried because I hadn't felt it since about 5 weeks, but today the mw reassured me it is just my uterus stretching. She said it felt the right size and baby is fine, it went away a few days ago but I'm sure it will come back. I have endometriosis and the cramps were as bad as I get from that, so I was real worried, but it seems that most cramping so long as there is no bleeding, is totally normal.

Thanks everyone Seems I worry about every little thing! I've had no bleeding at all, and my morning sickness is sticking around. Having both at the same time is really annoying
