I feel the exact same way! I am 4 weeks, 3 days and I have that low, dull cramping in my abdomen. I actually woke up in the night thinking that I had started my period. I am crabby and my boobs are sore, so if anyone has any advice or info, I will take it too!

im 6 weeks 4 days today and i have the mild cramping and i was told by my friend that its normal its your body adjusting for your bby, your uterus is growing so its going to feel uncomfortable and i also took a couple tums last night for the cramping and i found out it was just gas built up it went away in like 10 min :) i haven't had it today yet. you could call your doctor if you want to and have that reassurement but as long as there no red blood or sharp painful pain you should be fine :) hope that helped!

I am 5w2d and still occassionally feel the mild cramping. Went to my doctor on this past Tuesday and he advised this is normal. Drink more water, it helps to relieve a bit. In addition, I've noticed that if I have tinkle I feel cramps and after I go it helps to relieve as well.

Lurking from 3rd trimester...I felt the exact same way for the first 7 weeks or so. Even was woken up in the middle of the night with bad cramping. Went in for an ultrasound and all was great! Here I am in week 29 :-) H&H 9 months to everyone!
