I'm 12 weeks and I've been cramping the past few days. Not nearly bad as menstrual cramps but enough to feel uncomfortable and cause me to worry. I have a doppler and can easily find the heartbeat. I just need some reassurance!
Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
I had really uncomfortable cramping up until 14 weeks. Mine felt a lot like menstrual cramps. I think 12 weeks is a big growth spurt I remember that being a very worrisome week for me. I find that drinking lots and lots of water helps the most. But I'm 15 weeks now and my baby is doing just fine I'm sure yours is too. I would only worry if the cramping is severe or accompanied by bleeding.
I'm 12 weeks too & have the same thing going on. It's not super bad, but enough to be annoying. Basically similar to what I felt for the first 2-3 weeks. I have a Doppler too and hadnt been able to find the hb for the last couple of days, so it was stressing me out, but I found baby today, so I feel a little better! I am sure it's just that baby is growing and we are growing and that everything is just fine!
I cramp off and on, not as bad as it was in the beginning, but still enough to be uncomfortable. Oddly enough, I think I'd feel better if I'd cramp more. I worry that the baby ISN'T growing and things aren't stretching. Haha. I think I'd find something to worry about no matter how I felt! Everything I've read says cramping is totally normal and keeping hydrated really helps.
I have belly discomforts quite often, I don't know if I would call it cramping though. I know I need to drink more water. I also remember lots of weird sensations from the uterus growing with my DD so it doesn't worry me. Just a reminder to drink water and take it easy.
I've had cramping too. Baby is just going through a big growth spurt right now. Don't forget in addition to our uterus growing, all of our organs are being shifted around as well. There's alot going on in there! I know it's hard not to worry, but everythings just fine I'm sure!
