Hi! I am 8 weeks pregnant and I am feelin these slight cramps in my tummy. They feel like period cramps but they do not hurt. i have asked a few family members and friends who have all had children of their own. They have told me that it is quite normal during the first stages of pregnancy, is this true? They said the reason for this is that my uterus is adjusting. I hope that someone will help me out on this as I am a first time mother to be and I am scared and so unsure on what is happening and i am hoping that I am not miscarring as I have waited so long for this pregnancy.
