Off and on cramping
Faithful0120 posted:
Hey I'm 7 weeks and 4 days pregnant and Ive been having some period like cramping that brings me too my knees. The nurse told me I was fine it was just my muscles streching. I'm not bleeding or seeing any discharge, but the pain hurts so bad that I want to curle up in a ball and cry. What should I do? I go to the dr next Thursday, but should I go to the hospital before then? This is my first time being pregnant and I just want to make sure that my baby is fine.

I know mild cramping in early pregnancy is normal but if it brings you to your knees and makes you want to cry, that is not normal. I would go to the hospital just to make sure everything is okay. Even if everything is fine, just being told that would make me feel better.
