    Default Is period cramping normal?

    I am 9 weeks and 2 days and I have started, in the last 5/10 mins, feeling period pain, it is so strong that if I wasn't pregnant I would think my period was just around the corner. There is no blood. How strong can they be and still be normal?
    TIA

    I have heard its normal as long as you don't have bleeding with the cramps :-)

    If the are ongoing, strong cramping I would get it checked out. Otherwise the odd cramping is supposed to be normal.

    I'm 22 weeks and having period like cramps right now!! My plan is Panadeine, loads of water and bed

    It is normal. I've had it on and off since I got my BFP, and some days it gets pretty bad. If its accompanied by bleeding, or you are actually doubled over in pain, then get yourself checked out. Or if ur just super worried, call ur OB to ease ur mind
