I had cramping with my daughter, but this time around it's stronger. They say mild cramping is normal but I'd call this moderate. I broke down and took some Tylenol -- never needed any painkillers the first time around. No bleeding. Should I be worried??

If in doubt, call your doc, but I had moderate cramping with my second. I have HORRIBLE menstrual cramps, and with my first and second, I knew that I was pregnant because the cramps weren't as bad. Soon, though, I started cramping quite a bit with my second. I assumed that I was miscarrying, but the doctors assured me that this was normal. They don't want women doubled over in pain and not calling their doctors, so "mild" is how they keep it so anything more is reported. However, it's not necessarily a bad thing. Maybe the baby is just trying to get extra snuggly in there!

are you still nursing? If so, 100% normal and won't harm a healthy pregnancy

Is it normal that it doesn't necessarily happen *while* I'm nursing?

This definitely makes me feel better.

I agree. Totally normal. My midwife said that the cramps, round ligament pains, and Braxton Hicks tend to get worse with each consecutive pregnancy. I didn't have much cramping with my first, had significant cramping with my second, and it's even worse now with my third.

As long as your not in excruciating pain or bleeding a lot, you should be just fine!

I've heard it'll be more painful when first breastfeeding, too -- the uterine cramps you get. Blech! Oh well. All worth it!
