    Default Stomach muscle cramps/spasms

    I'm 13.5 weeks UTD and since about 7weeks pregnant I've been getting a lot of stomach muscle cramps/spasms some are minor some I end up on the floor in pain until they subside it usually takes a minute or two.
    I do have a long history of back issues and have experienced the spasms on and off for years but they have become worse and more frequent with this pregnancy. I see my OB on Friday and will tell him about them but I was just wondering if anyone has experienced the same and what did you need to do to help the situation.

    I got a lot of cramping at first. It's quite common. I used a heat pack. Try not to stress (I know that's easier said then done) and definitely talk to your OB about it

    Hi, yes i got them realy bad this time. So bad they folded me double and my bump constantly ached so much even a hug from my kids hurt. My Ob gave me a bandage to support my bump and relieve the muscles a bit...made a world of difference.
