When you are pregnant and your uterus starts to expand it can cause some cramplike discomfort, both in your abdomen and your lower back. I spent the entire first trimester of both of my pregnancies with menstrual-like cramps, and everything was fine. Usually unless the pain is severe or there is bleeding there is nothing to worry about. As always, it is a good idea to talk to your doctor if you are concerned. Good luck with your pregnancy!
