Cramps During Pregnancy


Cramps during pregnancy may alert you, but some cramping and abdominal pain is actually common during this time. Before you even know you are pregnant, you may feel as if you are going to start your period. You may experience the same cramping, if not a little more, that you would normally feel during your menstrual cycle. When the egg implants itself in the uterine lining some mild early pregnancy cramping may occur. At this point you may not even know you are pregnant yet and may dismiss this cramping as a sign that your period is on its way.

Gas pains can cause cramping during pregnancy

It seems like almost everything is out of whack for our bodies when we are pregnant, and our digestive track is no exception. During pregnancy you may experience more gas than normal. Gas pains can also cause cramping during pregnancy. Constipation is also a complaint often reported by pregnant women. This can occur during all three trimesters, and even if you weren't pregnant, would cause cramping. Probably during some point in your pregnancy you will also have diarrhea. This can also cause cramping during pregnancy.

Cramps during second trimester

Around the second trimester, the muscles and ligaments that support your uterus will begin to stretch and move to prepare for baby's growth. This change in your body will often cause you to have pregnancy cramps. The best way to treat these cramps is to take a break from whatever you are doing and rest or to get a massage.

Cramps during early pregnancy could be a sign of miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy

Sometimes cramping during pregnancy can be a sign that something is going wrong. If severe cramps occur during early pregnancy it could be a sign of miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy.
miscarriage: A miscarriage is when the pregnancy is terminated on its own, and usually occurs if something is not developing right.
ectopic pregnancy: An ectopic pregnancy is when the egg implants itself somewhere other than the uterus, and can be extremely dangerous to the mother. Bleeding can be a sign of both of these complications. If you experience any bleeding associated with pregnancy cramps, you should contact your doctor immediately.

Cramping during pregnancy could be a sign of preterm labor

Cramping during pregnancy could also be a sign of preterm labor, or labor beginning before thirty seven weeks gestation. Thousands of babies every year are born before their due date. If you experience cramping and you are not yet to your thirty seventh week, contact your doctor. She may put you on bed rest or take other precautionary measures to delay the onset of labor.

Labor and Cramps after thirty seventh week

If you are past your thirty seventh week of pregnancy and you are experience cramping during pregnancy, it may be a sign that labor is about to begin. This is a completely normal experience, and excited many women because it is assurance to them that the big day is near. Cramping could also be what is known as Braxton Hicks contractions. These contractions are a practice round for the big day, and may be slightly uncomfortable.

Sometimes normal cramping during pregnancy and cramping that signals a warning sign can be difficult to differentiate between. If you experience any bleeding, fever, or excessive or severe cramping it is always a good idea to speak with your health care provider.

Thousands of happy moms around the world successfully used Fortunebaby gender prediction test. We are delighted to share their gender prediction reviews about their experience with Fortune Baby.

When I was four months pregnant, I went to the doctor to see what I was having, and my baby didn't want us to know what he/she was... then I was browsing the internet, and that's when I came upon your web site, and I put in the information that you requested, and you told me that I was having a boy, and then I found out I was having a boy, when my sister had went to the hospital to find out what she was having... and they told me a boy. Then on my birthday... I had my baby, and it was a healthy baby boy six pounds ten ounces, and nineteen in a half inches long! You are 100% right. I even did it with my sister's pregnancy, and before she went to find out what she was having... you told me that she was having a girl, then she went to the hospital, and they told her that she was having a girl! Thank you very much... I recommended you to everyone that is pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant! You are the best... my son is 6 months old now!

Just a quick note to say that your sex prediction of my baby results was 100% accurate! Your gender predictor results said Girl which I was hoping for, and I had my ultrasound and it showed a Girl! My little boy is so excited that he is having a little sister!
