getting some dull cramping every now and then? This really worries me, and was starting to really stress me out last night. I get it on and off, nothing too painful... more of an ache than anything sharp and nothing I would need to take medicine for. It never lasts long and comes and goes unpredictably. I don't mean to sound like a worry wort but it freaks me out that something is wrong . It was reassuring at my last appointment (April 20th) that my midwife found the heartbeat right away and that I was measuring right where I should be, but still it concerns me. I've been drinking lots more water so hopefully that'll help.

I looked online and it said... "Mild and occasional abdominal cramps during the second trimester do not necessarily indicate a problem. Abdominal cramps become a problem during the second trimester when they are severe, they are persistent, or when they are also accompanied by any spotting or bleeding." Also... "In some cases, a woman may feel mild abdominal cramps during the second trimester that are actually caused by ligament pain. This sort of cramp feels more like a dull aching sensation across the abdomen. In other cases, it may manifest itself as a sharp ache that runs along the side of the abdomen."
