As far as cramping, I've had mild cramps off and on, occasionally a twinge that actually catches my attention but it's generally short lived and not worth taking painkillers for (not that I have a problem with them, Ibuprofen is my friend, lol). I do tend to have more in the way of back pain vs
cramps in my normal period
. There's been back aches off and on since about 6 weeks or so (when they first told me the baby wasn't growing properly). Some days they're worse, some days nothing.
