I am 9 weeks pregnant and I have been getting quite bad period like cramps suddenly for about 3 weeks now! i had a scan last weekend everything was fine. Was just wondering if anyone else had been getting these cramps and if so, any solutions?

Sadly 'growing pains' are all part of the norm in pregnancy. Your uterus will grow in size as baby grows meaning that all the muscles around it need to move & stretch to accommodate. On top of this your other organs can notice the sudden decrease in space beside them - your bowels will get squashed making you feel constipated or have diarrhoea, your bladder will get squashed making you want to wee more, your ribs will feel tight & your lungs squashed making you feel more short on breath...
Cause for concern would be any bleeding or if the pain becomes so intense you are doubling over

Yes these have been driving me crazy for the past week I will be 6 weeks pregnant tomorrow and have been getting them right along I have an ultrasound set up for tomorrow but my doctor said it's all normal if you start bleeding with my son I think I had some light cramping everything just has to stretch out
