Dull ache?

I am really trying not to worry - but I dont' remember having this with my other pregnancies...

this morning I started to have like a dull ache or a mild cramp-like feeling in the bottom of my abdomen.

Hey,

Just wanted to chime in and say that I experience that same feeling on and off.

I agree with pp. Some cramping can be normal. My OB just told me that when I made my first appointment (1/19). If your worried you should call your OB. Honestly, with my first few kids, I had no cramping. It wasn't until later pregnancy that I noticed the cramping 'thing'. I had it pretty bad with Penny, but not so much this time around.

Lots of people have dull/achy cramps during pregnancy. Most times its just your uterus starting to stretch. I'm sure eveything is okay! But if your concerned just check in with your OB, thy are used to questions like that and can put your mind at ease!

I had that very thing yesterday, almost all day, with no other symptoms. Today, it's vanished. I've had two MCs and a very difficult and scary pregnancy with #3, so it's hard not to worry, but I know that there's not a lot I can do or can be done if something is not right. And, it could just be one of those freaky things that happen in pregnancy and means nothing. If you're overly concerned, however, by all means call your OB. I see mine again in a week, so I'll mention it to her, but not going to give it too much thought right now, especially since I'm feeling better.
