So, I've read that having period like cramps is completely normal.

Yes it is! I told my husband about it and I said I know it's normal, but it was still scary. And he's normally the most supportive person in the world, but let's face it, I can be obsessive sometimes. lol So he was glad they stopped and such, but when I said I needed to go to the bathroom and I dreaded it because I was afraid I might see blood, he said oh no. How long is this going to last. And I just stopped him and said "It's a legitimate concern." And he agreed and was glad when there was no blood. It's just hard when you can't see or feel anything and you know things happen and you can't help them, you just have to wait and see.

I completely understand how you feel! This will be baby #5 for me, and I still freaked out about cramping and some spotting that I had at right about 5 weeks. It lasted a few days, off and on, and then went away. I called my dr's office and his nurse said it's pretty normal. I won't really feel completely convinced until my US next week, but I've not had any problems since then :-)

It is scary! I had cramping around the four week mark. Had me wondering if I was wrong about the pregnancy and if I was just really late. Cramps went away and morning sickness is here. Guess its safe to say there is a little pipsqueak growing in there.
