    Unhappy AF type cramping - do I worry???

    I have been getting some mild cramping, like AF is coming. I know that some ladies get this type of cramping early in a pg, but I am just really concerned that I will m/c again. I'm finding that I can't enjoy the pregnancy and I worry too much about every twitch, twinge and niggle that I feel

    I have no other symptoms, other than a little tiredness. I am 5 wks today.



    Has anyone else experienced this? Just need some reassurance.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy!! Yes, I had the same kind of cramps when pg with DS2 and I didn't get any real symptoms until I was 7 weeks. He was born happy and healthy two weeks ago. I'm sure what you are experiencing is very normal. I'm sure you and your bub are just fine

    thanks ladies. I'm due at the doctors tomorrow to get all my blood screens back so I will mention it then.

    Feeb, where did you get your ticker? And how do I get one?

    I also had cramping, felt like AF was going to turn up, and now have a beautiful baby boy! As long as you have no bleeding I would say it is normal implantation cramping, bubba burying down and making itself nice and cosy!
    Good luck with your dr's appt tomorrow

    I had the same. I asked my gp about it with DD2 coz I was worried, but it's just coz your uterus is stretching. It'll go away.
    Don't worry too much unless you start spotting or bleeding, or the pain is really bad. I mean worse than your worst AF pain.
