    Hey ladiesss,

    I've been having cramping and discomfort on and off today and it's really freaking me out.
    It's not like horrific pain, but it's there, and i notice it.
    Once in a while it's like little sharp pains, and others it's just like a constant like throb?
    Just wondering if it's normal??
    There's no bleeding and it's not like it's making me keel over in pain, but I'm still worried??

    I got some sharp pains around your time, your bean is getting pretty big and the uterus is stretching even more!

    I am having some mild cramping tonight also. Can't sleep because I keep thinking about it. Little worried too. Although if I think back to my previous pregnancies I remember getting cramping with them too. I also remember worrying then too. I think we are fine :) Kayln (maybe spelled Kaylin) is at the top of my list for a little girl too! xoxo

    I've been experiencing this for the last few days, with sharp pains occurring on the right and left, as well as mild cramping. It literally feels as though my belly is popping out!! i was also very concerned, especially as I had very very very slight spotting yesterday, which has since stopped.

    oh joy im getting this....its sharp and on and off through out the day situated on the left side. every now and then its sharp but other than this its just an uncomfortable cramping feeling sometimes its constant for hours.

    my bean is obviously going to be a digger when hes/shes older :happydance:
     
  8. i've had cramping throughout. and my back pain has been unreal!
    take a lie down and it should ease a little bit, although i've found if i stay in the same position it does feel worse!

    i've also had like a shooting feeling on my left hand side which goes all the way up to my boob. it doesnt hurt but it does make me twitch.
    it's just where the baby is settling! xx

    I'm 7 weeks and honestly it's the only thing convincing me I'm pregnant :wacko:I have no morning sickness or other symptoms really, except being more hungry and tired.

    I constantly have cramps though. Mild, strange stretchy cramps. Of course I start worrying if they stop for even 5 minutes :winkwink:

    Im six weeks along. The ticker thing is down right now but I was worried too. I get cramps every now and again. Sickness is only when I eat too much, of something I dont LOVE. Im hungry and thirsty alot in the middle of the night and the cramps suck. Its like period cramps less often without the blood. other than that. They are just there and sometimes they are very uncomfortable. Im glad Im not the only one

    i have cramping at the bottom abdominal (left side), since 2 weeks ago... and spotting since i was 5 weeks preg.... and the doc confirms my baby is just fine, nothing to worry... so, don't worry, it just a sign that your baby & uterus is growing...

    i took from "i am pregnant" article for 12-13 weeks pregnancy:

    By the end of this week, your uterus is too large to remain completely in your pelvis. You might be able to feel your uterus above your pubic bone. The uterus will continue to grow throughout your pregnancy and will return to its usual size within a few weeks after delivery.
