I've been assured all over the internet and various books that this is normal... but it sure is frustrating.
I'm at a little over 6 weeks with twins....
and for the past 2-3 weeks I've been having regular cramping. Not all the time, not everyday, but a lot. It basically hurts like menstral cramps. So it's not a sharp or "OMG" pain, but it's quite distracting and it's kinda hard to work well when I'm so uncomfortable. Also, with my period I only had to deal with that for maybe 2 days, whereas this keeps going on.
Other than making sure I drink enough water, shifting positions or perhaps taking a warm bath, does anyone have any safe methods of relief?
I'd really rather not take pain relievers... I just don't want to do anything remotely risky if I can help it.
Yes, slightly different as rice socks are more moist. My birth center gave me one but you can make your own. Just google. You zap it in the microwave for a few minutes and it's good to go. I've had my hubby with Crohns use it sometimes and I think he gets relief too. Might be worth a shot. No other ideas, sorry.

only thing i can think of is tylenol, and what the others suggested. it is safe, and it sounds like you're uncomfortable enough that the benefit would outweigh the "risk", though it has been proven safe in all trimesters. I hope you feel better.
