Cramps during pregnancy can occur at any time, but they are most common in the early stages of pregnancy. These cramps are often caused by the uterus expanding and stretching to accommodate the growing baby. However, if cramps are severe or accompanied by heavy bleeding, it is important to consult a healthcare provider as they may indicate a problem.
