    My husband and I just found out yesterday that we are expecting, according to my last period I should be right around 5 & a half weeks. I am have little cramps on and off, not uncomfortable but just enough to notice, I read that it could mean your uterus is stretching and getting bigger but I'm still worried. Is anyone else having these symptoms?

    I had period-like cramps during both my pregnancies.

    Thanks ladies! I keep reading on etopic pregnancies and stuff and it worries me! I'm NOT going to stress though, this is my second pregnancy and I don't remember having them with my daughter (I didn't find out with her until I was 11 wks pregnant) I didn't have ANY symptoms and with this one I had symptoms from the day after my missed period, it's weird how they say EVERY pregnancy is different, it's so true!

    I have had cramping on and off since I was 5 weeks, I am now almost 10 weeks along. From what I've read about ectopic pregnancies it is a really sharp pain predominately on one side.
    cbragg15 replied to kjensen15's response:
    Thank you! Mine is not sharp and doesn't feel bad at all, it's just enough to notice it! It's not like menstural cramps either, alot less than menstural cramps!
    KonaMommy responded:
    With this pregnancy, and my son, I noticed a dull "pulling" sensation that is sometimes more noticeable on one side, sometimes more so on the other. It's not really crampy, it feels like a taffy pull in there. I think this is the uterus stretching.
