So some cramping is normal. Right? I know it is, I've read it, heard it and seen it...but I have been cramping on and off all day, starting early this morning and it is freaking me out. Not bad cramps, just what kind of feels like pre-period cramps. Like, if I hadn't gotten 4 positive tests between Sat and today, and didn't know/think I was pregnant, I would think, "Oh I'm a little crampy, I'll probably start my period today or tomorrow". Honestly, if I wasn't pregnant I don't think they would bother me enough to mention it really. Also, a little TMI, they do go away for a bit if I go to the bathroom (#1 or #2). I have no signs of bleeding or spotting at all, so yay for that! I think it is just that things are going on in there and changes are taking place to prepare my uterus for it's impending doom and since I have been pregnant before, I'm a little more sensitive down there (points to lower abdomen), and since I lost Kaiya, I'm a little more nuerotic up here (Points to head). Just need some reassurance that a little minor cramping is all part of the process! Thanks a bunch.

In early pregnancy, some cramping is normal. I was a mess early on. With every cramp I ran to the bathroom to check for bleeding. I always swore that I was going to start bleeding for a while. Cramping is normal because the uterus is growing. I hope that you can relax a little. I know...easier said than done.

I agree, some cramping is normal. In fact, I even spotted some with Lily in addition to cramping. She's so far growing wonderfully and very healthy. The spotting was connected to stress. That freaked out both me and DH so he had me just quit my job as a Kmart cashier. The spotting was gone by the next day.

YAY for no bleeding or spotting. It's normal to cramp in the beginning. It's unnerving, but normal. I hope it's just your bean snuggling in for this 9 month journey.
