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!

I know this sounds odd... but it is something I experience....

What is the weather like where you are? Whenever there is a change in barometric pressure (like a storm, or about to storm) I get really crampy! It is odd!

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.

It's been a little warm for a few days. I'm sure it's just stretching and all, but it's hard not to worry.

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!

Make sure you are hydrated and try to rest a little when it happens.

Is this your first baby? It is probably just your uterus stretching. Make sure you drink water like Courtney said above me.

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!
