    Default 6 weeks - Pain & Cramping, think it is bowel/intestine related

    Hi everyone,
    Was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
    I'm 6 weeks preg with #1.
    Last week I had some mild cramping - put that down to stretching - normal stuff.
    I have had no bleeding at all.
    Since Sunday I have been having bad cramping/stomach aches that come and go, but when it hits - it is really painful.
    Earlier in the week I thought it was constipation pains. I have been eating well, drinking lots of water and plenty of fibre.
    Yesterday I bought some prunes.
    Well last night - the pains woke me up during the night & I had a bout of diahhrea (sorry TMI)
    I am thinking my body isn't coping with the hormones and it's affected my bowel/intestines. I'm either blocked up or completely the opposite. Either way though - it is giving me very bad cramping pains!
    On top of that I just feel really blergh! I just want to go home and curl up in bed!
    Any advice you have would be most appreciated!
    Thank you.

    Default 6 weeks - Pain & Cramping, think it is bowel/intestine related

    Hi! I had this in my pg too. The fist half of the pg was worse than the second half. It was definitely bowel pain for me & it was on the lower left side. It would come & go with certain foods. Ice cream for some reason was the worst for me. One night I actually thought I was having a m/c the pain was sooo bad!! The only thing I found helped was drinking loads of water & gentle massage in that area to move things along. 😄

    Welcome to pregnancy! One of the lovely things no one tells u. I had the same with my DD. severe cramping & the runs for 16 weeks - it was horrendous!
    It should get better in time, it's basically another form of morning sickness & caused by hormones.
    Hope it clears up for u soon!
    & congrats on ur first bub

    Thank you for your answers ladies. It is reassuring to know that this is normal. I'm not vomiting at all but have total nausea & funny bowels so I guess this is my morning sickness!
