    I think so, as long as they are not painful then it is normal.

    It's just your bean making room. x

    Yep perfectly normal, only time to be concerned is if they are painful and accompanied by bleeding, its just things stretching and adjusting to LO!

    No worries , I had cramping the day after my positive OPK test all the way until I was 6wks pregnant! It was off and on cramping, mostly on my right side.

    Now i am 25wks and lil monkey is doing great! So its completely normal.

    It is worrying, everything is worrying at the moment! But more often than not things work out just fine and are perfectly normal :hugs:

    I've been cramping too. And when not cramping I have a dull ache/fullness feeling in my lower abdomen. My doctor told me today it is perfectly normal as long as no bleeding. Said if I see any bleeding to drink 2 glasses of water and lay down for an hour. If bleeding continues to call her. But so far I've had NO bleeding. I'm thankful for everyday that goes by that I see no blood. :)

    So far I've never heard of a woman who had no cramping during early pregnancy.
    I have it now too.. and always did with my pregnancies so I think its normal.

    I've been cramping too.. sometimes a lot, but if I move around, it settles down. My OB says it's normal, as long as it isn't severe on one side.
