Hello, I bet you are feeling so worried after someone said that to you! There are some horrid people around.
Cramping in early pregnancy is so common. Im now 17 weeks and had cramping right from before period due until now. Even had some light spotting and was reassured that this is ok. Only time to worry is if you have heavy bleeding and really painful sharp pains. Then you should seek help. Even then things can still be ok.
On the flip side i had a previous pregnancy with no cramping whatsoever which turned out to be a missed miscarriage.
Also the loss of symptoms is very common (the timings very variable) mine came and went for first 10 weeks, completely went for 2 weeks only to return again!
Guess what I'm trying to say is every woman is different in what they experience. Cramping is all part of pregnancy. What you're feeling is normal and please don't listen to any heartless comments.
Keep us posted how you get on xx

That's not helpful what the woman said and really not supportI've. I had cramping still get it often I also had bleeding at the start then lost a lot of symptoms at 9 weeks but all was and is fine. Your body is stretching and changing cramping is normal. Try not to worry too much. Good luck with the scan x

My symptoms come and go since the beginning, like my body can't make up its mind lol
Cramping is totally normal, I freaked out at the first time I felt it around 9 weeks, everything was fine though.
I'm now 21 weeks, I still get odd cramps but think the baby moving alot doesn't help lol, have a nice scan tomorrow xx
