Period like cramps?

Postby Pinkangel » Sun Mar 15, 2015 11:46 am

Hi ladies, I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced period like cramps after 12 weeks. I'm nearly 14 weeks and having cramp like pain in my pelvic region and I feel like I'm about to start bleeding. I usually have these pains when my period starts and according to my ovulation calendar this is when I would be on a period if I were not pregnant. I did not experience this last month and don't remember this happening last pregnancy. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Um for me these cramps were early on but not past 10th week. I remember them pretty much week 5-8 or so. Even discussed them on here. I'm not sure weather or not to say it's normal to be honest . They say spotting and light bleeding is normal but it's accompanied by cramps to let your dr know . This is the only reason I would say let your dr know about them.

It might just stil be your uterus stretching. Remember not every pregnancy is the same and the symptoms can be completely different from your first . Just bring it up to your OB and keep an eye on it . If it gets very painful do pay a visit to your dr .

Between 14-17 weeks I had some cramping, but I wouldn't describe it quite like AF, just a very full feeling in my uterus. I also felt like all of my muscles were really tight in my abdomen like I needed to stretch them out. It was never painful (which AF cramps are to me) just uncomfortable. Around 17 weeks, my bump popped out and my muscles relaxed, almost overnight. I think it was just baby growing fast and running out of room.

If yours really feel more like AF cramps, I would definitely call your doctor just to get a professional opinion!
