    When I was in first trimester I felt As if my period was going to come. Basically feels the same.
    Pains should be no worse than a period though! :)
    I still get pains but only every now and then :)

    :) I'm sure your fine but if pain is unbearable contact MW or GP :)

    I have had cramps with both pregnancies.

    My first pregnancy I had them every other day and they were very painful and I had to take pain killers - that pregnancy ended in a missed miscarriage at 10+6. I had other indicators that it was going wrong though as my nausea and sore boobs dissapeared and I lost brown coloured jelly a few weeks before the bleeding came.

    This pregnancy I had probably had a good few days of cramps in the first tri which was stretching pains, they felt like period cramps but they were not so bad I needed pain killers and they varied in length from a couple of minutes to a couple of hours. Also had a few days of similar cramps in tri 2 which again was stretching pains and my 20 week scan last week confirmed bubs was fine.

    I think from my experience as long as you don't lose any plug type substance/ red blood and your other pregnancy symptoms stick around you should be fine x

    I had some cramping at the 4 week mark, it went away and it has just started again today, not major cramps, like other ladies have said just very similar to period cramps, but I am taking it as a good sign, stretching of the uterus

    Sure it's all fine for you too :)
