Has anyone else, who has had a pregnancy after an ectopic, felt the same kind of cramping?

I have been getting the same stabbing kind of cramps on my right side, same place I felt them with the ectopic even though it was on the left.

I have had several u/s and the baby is in the uterus, with a heartbeat. I am about 7 weeks.

I was just wondering if this is normal? Or if my body is being weird again.

TIA

Lisa

Hey Lisa-I am pregnant now after 2 ectopics and i dont have any cramping right now. However, at the beginning i did a tad bit-but not like it was for my tubals! OOOOooooh, so glad that they foudn that the baby is in your uterus this time-I go on Friday to make sure, but they've been checking my levels every other day and they're looking good-so thats good!!! Are your cramps pretty painful or just tugging???
Keep us updated!

If the stabbing cramps are short in duration and you get them when you move or change positions, then they are perfectly normal. I had them thoughout this pregnancy and so have others. They can be quite sharp and painful but don't last more then a minute. I also get aches that last about half an hour or so. Both the painful sharp cramps and aches are on the right side because the uterus tilts to the right (which is why they tell you to rest on the left side if you have cramps). It's just the uterus growing and streaching.

If you have sharp/painful cramps that don't go away, I think you should tell your doctor about them.

That is exactly it. Thank you.

My doctor is aware of the cramping. I have a small collection of fluid in my uterus that he thinks is causing it. I was just making myself so paranoid.

I am happy that that's what they are. You will get used to them and get used to avoiding sudden movement.

The first weeks and months of pregnancy are so stressful with all this stuff happening to our bodies.

Yes I still do. I have some scar tissue from having my tube removed and was already aware of the problem before I got pregnant. It wasn't too bad, but it did freak me out everytime

Congrats on the pregnancy!

I was driving myself crazy on google.

You should not be able to look up medical information. LOL
