    Hey girls, since reaching 12 weeks i have started to cramp more, it only lasts a few seconds and isnt terribly painful just like something scraping inside? is this stretching? anyone else get this?? i have had cramps all the way through but they were more period cramps, these are different and dont last so long...

    They are probably stretching cramps now. I remember the shooting stabbing crampiness towards that time with my daughter. Now that you are going to get bigger, you will have more and different types of aches and pains!! :) Let the fun begin.

    Yes - I have been getting more cramps and aches over the past week or 2, partcularly if I move too quickly.
    I assume it is uterus growth/stretching as, as you say it doesnt last to long (30 secs?) and then I am fine.

    yep i think that this is stretching. at 11wk + 5 i had period cramps so bad i was doubled over and cryin in pain- i ended up goin to A&E where i had loads of blood tests and everythin was fine. had scan 5 days later and again all good. as long as u r not bleeding its just a growing spurt. x

    I'm 12 weeks and I've had cramping the last couple of days which was a tad worrying but I guess its just stretching pains....I ordered one of those heartbeat detector thingys the other day which arrived this morning so I was very relieved to hear that little mouse heartbeat again just to confirm piglet was still ok in there! so try not to worry (easier said than done, all I do is question everything since I found out lol) xx
