I'm not sure if I asked this question before or not.

I'm having period-like cramping again today. These cramps don't come around often, but when they do, it makes me feel really nervous. I know I'm not dehydrated. I drink water 24/7. It's the only that that tastes good to me at the moment. It's not round ligament pains.. at least I don't think they are. All I'm feeling is cramping. No pulling or stretching.

What could be causing this? I have a doctor appointment on Tuesday, so I will talk to my doctor about these cramps. I probably have nothing to worry about, but I just wanted to make sure.

If they aren't painful, then you probably don't have much to worry about...I talked to my doctor about it and she said that even though you don't feel the pulling sensation, its probably still just round ligament pain and your cervix working its way up into your abdomen...especially for first time moms whose body hasn't gone through this before...

At least mention it to your doc on Tuesday though...s/he may want to run a test or so to rule out anything else it could be (like it could be a UTI, you just aren't having the classic symptoms)...

~Thank you to claire1979 for my siggy~

Thanks, ladies!

I don't think it's from over doing things. I was sitting on the couch and relaxing the night I had them. I haven't had an issue since, but I will definitely bring it up to my doctor on Tuesday. I want to see what she has to say about it. I hope it was nothing but my belly or baby growing.
