Yes, for some women it can be.

I talked to a GYN nurse this morning and asked that same question. She said, yes, it is possible and not uncommon.

I spoke to my doctor regarding my initial question about cramping. I told him that I was still experiencing this minor cramping and he took me off work calling it a threatened miscarriage spell at this time. I would suggest noting where the cramps are felt,when,and for how long as in days. This will be a good indication for your docotor to decide what is best for you. In my case I am now taking progestrine suppositories to calm my uterus down. I am also off work for 6 weeks. I did also find out that I was pregnant with twins and one is not developing. In my opinion I believe that is the source for my cramping.

Yes, your uterus is expanding and stretching to make room for baby. I had horrible cramps with my pregnancy... but still i would seek a doctors opinion if you are pregnant and having bad cramps to be on the safe side.
