    GAS or CRAMPS

    I'm 5 weeks pregnant and I seem to be getting pain in my abdomen/uterus area. It doesn't necessarily have a pattern to it but comes and goes occasionally. I know I haven't been as "regular" as normal... just curious if this could be cramping still from everything settling down or if it's gas and bloating. Thanks!!

    RE: GAS or CRAMPS

    Hi. It could be both. U can't actually tell. But most likely it's because the pregnancy is new and it's a sign that it's being settled in its place (it has a scientific name but totally forgot it ). It happened to me and I also bleed and lost so much clear fluid. Don't worry it's just because the body is trying to cope with the new changes. Congrats!

    That's cramping, I had it a lot up until I was about 8 weeks pregnant, it did hurt but that's only because I can't handle pain whatsoever.

        : okay thank you! I don't always get period cramps so it was kinda tough lol. But good to know.

    I am 6.5 weeks along and I am having those same pains! One thing I read was that your uterus is stretching and sometimes it feels like a pull or stretch to me. I work in a hospital and all the nurses say it's normal.
