Hi Jeanette,

Welcome to the board and congratulations on your pregnancy! Cramping in early pregnancy is quite normal and I experienced it with all three of mine. Your uterus is expanding and your muscles are stretching which is likely a cause of your symptoms. Excessive urination is quite common as well and is one of the early signs of pregnancy.

If your cramping doesn't improve, and certainly if it gets worse, I'd give your doctor's office a call and let them know what's going on. Usually you can speak to the nurse and they'll let you know of you need to be concerned or not and if they'd like you to come in to be seen.

Wishing you the very best of luck! I hope to see you here often during your pregnancy journey.
