    Default Cramping at 4 weeks

    Hi All, I'm 4 weeks +4 pregnancy taking clomid first round! I have been cramping a lot, gets worse at night and always get one bad one that wakes me in the middle of the night! Just wondering if anyone else experienced this and how long it can last for? It's making me so nervous.
    Thanks x

    Hi, congratulations I definitely had slight cramping at the start but definitely nothing that woke me. If it continues I would maybe see a GP about it.
    Have you had bloods done? Maybe that would be a good idea if you haven't.

    Hi Lozz90 going to see my doctor tomorrow so I guess I will get my bloods done then? cramping has calmed down mostly but still lots of little twinges here and there. Only 5 weeks and starting to feel nauseous.

    Cramping can be normal as your uterus is stretching. I'm 7+1 and still have the occasional cramps

    Hi Girls went to see my doctor today and she said the same about uterus stretching and not to worry as long i didn't have a bleed all is good!
    Iv seen other people write that if they keep well hydrated and go to the loo often it curbs the cramps!? I guess everyone is different.
    I'm exactly 2 weeks behind you @Lil Smurfy have you started to get morning sickness?

    Oh no @Lil Smurf that's no good hopefully it will pass soon, Iv started feeling pretty nauseas all the time too and it's really not a great feeling, had a terrible night last night, woke with the worst pains which I am now putting down to wind (sorry tmi) and I think some of my not feeling so great is tiredness, I did mention to my doctor I wasn't sleeping great and she said it was pretty common with first pregnancies as are mind is going ninety!

    Regarding the cramping, is it normal for them to stop for a few days to a week and then suddenly come back? They’re in my lower abdomen and my back. I’ve been okay for a week or more and suddenly they’re back strong! I’m suffering the dreaded pregnancy constipation also, which maybe doesn’t help. How do you even differentiate what is pregnancy cramping and what is constipation cramping. What is an issue and what is perfectly normal?

    Ah, don't underestimate constipation cramping - it can be bad. I get it in my lower abdominal area. Trapped gas can also cause all sorts of pain and discomfort.

    Now long have you gone without a proper bowel movement?

    I have started laxatives and go daily, but still feel a little full. I just came from my GP who told me you should have no cramping in early pregnancy and I now have a scan tomorrow to be sure the baby is okay. I’m so confused and scared. The whole cramping thing is so miscommunicated with pregnancy. It’s just not clear. I’ll only be 6 weeks and 4 days tomorrow, so hopefully it’s not to early to hear the heart beat otherwise that will be very disheartening also.
