    I am just over 7 weeks and still getting cramps pretty much every day. I get the impression it is normal but not sure how much and for how long

    Yep! Totally normal! If they are seriously uncomfortable, or accmpanied by beelding, you need to get the checked out asap. I cramped all the way through with DS, and they've only really just worn off now with this pregnancy

    I am sure I read somewhere they are especially common around the time your period would have been due and it's down to hormone levels being slightly lower, nothing to worry about on their own though :)

    I had this for about 4 -5 days last week, it seems to have passed now but they were exactly the same as my normal period pains, I don't think you need to worry unless you have bleeding as well

    I keep getting cramps and it ends up being either gas or my bladder needs emptying and I don't even realize it

    Yup - all part of either constipation or stretching/changes! They will come and go from time to time.
