Menstrual cramps??
i'm just sitting here and am experiencing some menstrual like cramps on my right side. i had this alot with DS. some said that is because that is the side i ovulated on, my MW said it was normal stretching. i don't think it happend THIS early though with DS. i am 13wks+2days. this morning i had a dull back ache on and off for a bit. other then those 2 things i feel fine. i looked it up online and found others had questions about this around 13 weeks and people had said it is just round ligament pain/stretching of the uterus, etc. i have my 2nd MW appt. on friday-hoping all goes well!! (oh i'm a little gassy too and last night struggled with constipation-pushing very hard! maybe that contributed to my low back ache this morning?)

Re: Menstrual cramps??
Constipation hurts me before... and after. It feels just like menstrual cramps except more on the sides than in the center but that just might be my body.

Re: Menstrual cramps??
Round ligament pain can start MUCH earlier in subsequent pregnancies. I had it around 14 weeks with my 3rd, and have been having trouble since 11 weeks this time.

I know gas pains felt like contractions for me at times. I hope you get some answers and that it's something other than contractions. Or maybe it's early BH? I'd talk to your midwife or OB.

I've been getting round ligament pains/stretching since about 5 weeks. Happens only occasionally but its just like my other pregnancies.

I have been getting round ligament pain the past couple weeks along with some occasional gas pains.....both can mimic menstrual cramps. I have had a lower back ache occasionally too...I think it's normal.
