It would probably depend on far long you are. It usually isn't a problem unless there is spotting or bleeding. It was explained to me that most of the cramping is from the uterus growing and expanding. But I would talk this over with your doctor. Personally my pregnancy has been full of cramping, its been actually very painful,and everything is normal and healthy. But this didn't start until the begining of the third trimester, before that any minor cramping should be ok, but always let your doctor know about symptoms you have, just to be safe. And if it is accompanied by any bleeding, go to the hospital. I had cramping more in my second pregnancy and when I asked my doctor about it I was told that it was due to everything inside stretching to make room for the baby
They say occasional abdominal discomfort is common it can be harmless but it can also be a sign of a serious problem if that abdominal pain is persistent don't ignore it. Another sign something could be wrong is any bleeding or spotting.
It depends...if the cramps are accompanied by bleeding then you should be worried. If you think it is too severe then u should see a doc. Many women experience cramping early in pregnancy and even later on. It really depends on how bad the cramps actually are and if they are accompanied by bleeding. If the cramps are painful and you cant stand them then visit your doctor. But on a more positive note cramping is common in early pregnancy as your insides are growing to fit the baby.
Cramping during pregnancy, unfortunately, can mean multiple things; some are okay and some are not so good. It can be gas, constipation, your uterus growing; signs of an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, and the list can go on and on. If the cramping continues and it concerns you too much you should contact your doctor.
