cramping?

I know cramping in early pregnancy is common but.. I have it all day long, and its everyday! Its getting quite annoying as it does keep me up at night as well. No bleeding involved.

Anyone else with me?

DDC crashing. It is normal but if it is happening all day id atleast give a heads up to your care provider. Better to be safe than sorry.

Are you drinking plenty of water? Dehydration can lead to cramping, too. I'd probably call your care provider just to see what they say.

I agree with the other two. All day cramping that keeps you up at night should be reported. I would make sure to drink plenty of water and make sure that you aren't overdoing it either.

Re: cramping?

Yeah make sure you are staying hydrated. I know I had some bad cramping later in my last pregnancy (like second trimester) and I was freaking out until my MW told me it could be from dehydration. Once I started drinking a lot more water, the cramping stopped.

Eta:

I see its your first pregnancy. It could just be your ligaments stretching for the first time. I know when I had my first pregnancy I was shocked at how I had constant aching in my abdomen and hips. But I would still just check with your dr or mw.

Re: cramping?

I've been cramping on and off, and did go through a period where it felt for days like I should be starting my period. And I have Endo, so my periods are super painful. My doctor said things were just stretching out and rearranging themselves to make room for the uterus, so some cramping was normal, and I should only worry if it was unbearably painful or I saw red blood.

Re: cramping?

Hope you are feeling better. I do remember feeling crampy with #1 and it was the stretching. Definately let them know at your appointment

Re: cramping?

I mentioned it today at my appt but he didn't say anything.. good thing the cramping has lessened a lot since I posted this. I got to hear the heartbeat and got to have another sonogram! Was surprised since I had my first one at 5 weeks 6 days and was told I wouldn't get another till 20 weeks. Can't believe I saw little bean kick and move than he/she got the hiccups! Amazing
