    Default Is cramping normal?

    So I am 7weeks 2 days, not that far at all, and for 2 days I have been getting light cramps and back ache, Is this normal? I have my scan tomorrow, should I be expecting bad news because of these cramps?

    I had bad cramping all through my pregnancy, I don't know if that's to do with having endometriosis though?

    I was always told cramping without bleeding is completely normal.

    Cramps are apparently very common in early pregnancy - I had a run of quite a few nights where my cramps were so bad I needed panadol to sleep when I was about 6-ish weeks along. I am now 20 weeks and all is looking good. Not sure about the back ache, but hopefully someone else can shed some light on that!

    Thanks Ladies. I have had to take panadol for them once before to get me through, I had really bad loosening of my pelvis with DS, and he is only 9 months old, so I am hoping that this isnt just a wind up to that happening early, which I was told by a physio that would happen.
    Good to know that they dont seem to be a bad thing unless there is bleeding, which there isnt

    No, dont worry too much. I had awful cramps thru my first tri, heaps of lower back aches, cramps in my lower ab, sides, thighs, calves.. U name it. Had to take Panadeine max some days it was so bad. I'm 19 weeks now and still occasionally have crampy days. It's normal - u'll have all sorts of cramps, twinges, pulls, aches... all part of the joys of pregnancy!!

    The only time u need to worry is if the pain has u doubled over, and/or u have bleeding. and even then in some cases it's not necessarily bad news!!

    Good luck for ur scan tomorrow, hope u get to see a heartbeat!!

    If ur going to the Obgyn tomorrow let them check for urinary tract infection, just to be safe.

    I am not going private, so unless there is an issue I probably would be seeing an OB, bitter sweet.
    But I can see my doctor or a middie, but it dosent hurt to pee and I pee all the time lol
