Cramping

I am currently 12wks pregnant, due in February. For the past few weeks (about 2 I'd say) I have been having cramps on either side of my back. They arent horribly painful and there has been no bleeding or spotting. They usually occur first thing in the morning when I wake up, and if I accidentally say sit indian style on the couch or stretch out in bed. I have tried discussing this with my OB and I have left several messages on her voicemail but she isnt very straightforward and hasnt returned my calls. So I was hoping to get some reassurance or at least an insight on what this could be. I have an appointment with a different OB on Wed (the 6th) but until then I came here looking to you. Thanks in advance for taking your time to either read this and/or answer this question.

Drink some water and take it easy. I tend to cramp more when i'm tired, done too much or dehydrated. Also, if your OB isn't calling you back, I'd suggest looking into finding a new one. It's their job to respond when you have an issue, especially one like cramping!

I had cramping in the first trimester and so long as there is no bleeding or spotting its generally not a big deal. Its just you being able to feel your muscles getting ready for baby.
