    Second Pregnancy Early Cramping

    I just found out i was pregnant I am only about 4 weeks along and i am have cramping. I was wondering if this is normal?
    kjensen15 responded:
    I am 5 weeks along and have been having cramping off and on. They aren't constant and just kind of feel like light menstrual cramps. From everything I've read slight cramping is normal as long as they aren't really severe or accompanied by bleeding!
    BeautifullyBlessed replied to kjensen15's response:

    I've been having very light cramps as well that aren't constant. They are very dull. The thing is, I had my "period" this month. What triggered me was that I kept having the light cramps even after my period left. Today is 8 days after my period (CD9) and am still having the dull cramps which is odd for me.

    I took 2 hpts but they were both negative.

    Could it be possible?

    I am pregnant with my second child and I am 5 weeks along and I am experiencing cramping as well. I called the doc because I had some light pink bleeding a couple days ago and everything was fine. I guess it's like they say, no two pregnancies are alike.
