I have been having a lot of on-an-off cramping - like I'm getting my period - for the last few days.

I agree with kelly0828 - I wouldn't worry as long as there is no bleeding. Our bodies are doing all kind of wonderful things that require growth and movement (yay!) and that can mean cramps and discomfort(boo!). Did you have sex or an exam at the doctors? That gets me every time!

Great question, because I wondered the same thing. I cramp on and off, I am 5 weeks exactly today. No bleeding, and quite frankly I am simply feeling pregnant so I look optomistically that things are well down there. :)

I had cramping with both of my pgs with my kids. With my DS (2nd kid), I was so sure AF was going to start because of the cramping that I didn't even test until she was late. I've started having a little off and on this time. I don't remember it lasting very long.

The 1st T exhaustion is what I'm dreading. I think it started around 7w last time.

I had cramps last week, before I knew about beanie. This week as been fine. If I remember correctly I was crampy all 1st trimester last time. Can't remember with my first.

It's been six years since my last healthy pregnancy. ( one loss last year). Cramping is normal. I know that logically, but it doesn't seem to be helping my fears this time around. I'm 5 wks
