Menstrual cramps end of pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Menstrual cramps end of pregnancy


Hello-my first time to this wonderful site! My husband and I just started trying this month for our 2nd child. I was gone for 2 wks, but had unprotected sex both before and after I returned. I totally expected to have my period since I was gone for so long. I had just gotten off the pill before having my last period. So, I started having very bad menstrual cramps and "shocks" in my breasts 3 days ago. I kept running to the bathroom thinking I was going to start. Nothing.
I'm preggo w/my first so I have no experience to share, but I'm pretty sure cramping is very normal at the end <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> as your body prepares for labor/birth. I've had occassional menstrual like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> too and I'm not as far along as you. My doctor equates it to either BH, normal uterine cramping, or constipation or diarrea. Do you have an appointment soon? Definitely mention it next time you see your doctor. If it's going to be awhile, I'd call if it gets any worse.
are u talkn menstrual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span>. if so drink warm fluids not cold. cold fluids give u cramps. and try a warm rag on ur belly.
So, on Friday i had really really bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span>....they felt like menstrual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> i couldve started my period at any minute. i was out of town visiting my mom and i wasnt having any bleeding, i didnt fall or anything like that so i thought maybe i was just stretching...a lot. so i layed down and suffered....i was expecting them to go away but they stayed there the whole day..i got little breaks here and there but it was mostly there all day just like period cramps..
Tuesday night I got really really light spotting,like barely noticeable and that was the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>end</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> it . I got more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> on Wednesday and yesterday and nothing since. I am not on birth control, my husband and I use this normal ? Did that one spot of blood count as a period ?
I personally think it's just my uterus stretching as it starts to really increase in size, because it does feel similar to what it felt like at the very beginning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> when you get those uterus stretching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> and they say it's normal. Just wondering if anyone else ever experienced this?
It's normal for them to come and go, and there's still plenty <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> time for them to appear. Symptoms aren't indicative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>, nor mean the pregnancy is viable just like lack of symptoms aren't indicative of miscarriage. Enjoy your pregnancy and try not to worry. If something does go wrong, you don't want to look back on it and only remember worry and fear.
I really wouldnt think that you are pregnant if you have started "your period". With or without cramps, although some women do bleed during pg its not usually heavy like a period (and if it is its not usually a good sign). As far as a "bump" normally that would not be noticiable until at least the end of the first/ begining of the second trimester 13 weeks +, probably even later if this is your first pg. But anything can happen and every women is different.

You have described me to a "T" with your description of shortness of breath during my menstrual cycle. My will normally last about 2 wks. I have ask my family MD and my OB/GYN doctor and the only answer I have been given is "must be your hormones." My shortness of breath has been going on for several years, I'm now 46 yrs. old. If a doctor ever explains it to me, or determines the cause I will certainly let you know, and please do the same for me.
It's midnight and instead <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> sleeping I'm wide awake drinking ice water trying to get the baby to kick. He's been really still all afternoon and evening and it's driving me crazy. In the last couple of weeks my anxiety has been building up. I went on bedrest before at 24 and 30 weeks so being at 26 weeks makes me a little nervous. I'm timing contractions all day and then counting kicks all night. I have this feeling like something is going to go wrong.
Some people do experience spotting my sister in law had it with my nephew all the way through they thought they was miscarrying about 5 or 6 times and she had a healthy baby boy in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>end</span>, unfortunatly my spotting ended in miscarriage when i went to the Early <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> unit i was very suprised how common miscarriage is! Aww i hope your HCG continues to rise. Good luck.
My lower back has been so crampy, like a mix <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> dull aching pain and menstrual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span>. I've had an increase in appetite, but I'm also so nauseous at times. Is this normal, or doesnit mean that she's ready to come out.
I was on depo for just over 9 years. I got my last shot at the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>end</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> December last year and my period started the beginning of this month. So it took about 11 months after my last shot or 8 months after the depo injection ran out for AF to show up.
I became pregnant again in May <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> 2000 only to miscarry again in July <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> 2000. This <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> miscarried naturally. In 2001 I became pregnant again and delivered my healthy little girl. I became pregnant again in August of 2004 with twins and miscarried both in October. I did not have a D&C but I really felt that my body did not pass everything. I became pregnant again in January of 2005 and miscarried in March of 2005.
Hello, If you have had your periods after intercourse then chances <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> are less. It looks like viral infection and sinusitis and post nasal drip. Post-nasal drip (PND) occurs when excessive mucus is produced by the sinuses. For ruling it out an ENT examination along with transillumination test of sinuses or x-ray sinuses should be done.
About two weeks ago a couple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> hours after intercourse I had spotting but that was all. However this week along with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span>, I have been hormonal and exhausted. When I have gone to bed of a night I havnt been able to sleep and feel restless. My breasts have been slighlty more tender than normal I just keep thinking it is due to me being over weight. My lower back and legs have been aching aswell. I done a test two weeks ago after the light bleed but it was negative..
Well, my contrations felt like menstrual type cramps. Is your tummy hardening with some of the cramping???
It feels like bad menstrual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> but I'm unsure because during my periods I don't get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> (lucky me I know). I'm 35 weeks and the pain starts off dull then gets a little worse then goes away some what. The whole thing lasts for a minute or two and they're about 20 minutes apart. I don't want to jump to the whole IM IN LABOR idea lol and I def don't want to end up in the hospital twelve times because I think I'm going to into labor, so any help?? Also this is my first child.
i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend 2weeks ago(he pulled out), right after i believe my ovulation began. two days later i started experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span>, but my menstrual wasnt due for another two weeks. I usually get cramps a couple hours before my menstrual starts.
Now keep in mind I was suppose to be almost 9 weeks then. As for the cramping....I had it early with this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>...menstrual cramps and in the back...I was scared....but so far so good. The spotting I never had....only with the first two losses. But, with my last m/c....I also had blood in my uterus. My drs weren't concerned about that ....even though I lost the wasn't concerning until it appeared the blood was coming from the early placenta...

CONGRATS on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>!!! They do say that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> are normal during early <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> (well really all pregnancy" but I was reading in "What to Expect When you are Expecting" and they said "When Not to Worry : Mild cramps and achiness or pulling sensation on one or both sides of the abdomen. This is probably caused by the stretching of ligaments that support the uterus.
Hi all, I am currently on day 46 with no period? And I've taken 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> tests which both came back negative. I am not ttc, and I am not on the pill or any other medication. I am 30 years old and have been off the pill for about a year and a half now (went on when I was 15 from horrible cramps). I have never been this late before, and I have been in agonizing pain for about 3 days now with the pain in my right ovary (area) getting more sharp and intense each day.
In the book I mentioned to Kellie, it says that you could have cramping due to fluid that is released when you ovulate - it irritates the uterus and can cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span>. I just want to know if those <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> can last the rest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the cycle or are these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> a problem.
I'm still having cramps, but they're definitely mild. Still, when you feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> that FEEL like menstrual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span>, you kind <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> freak out. I'm trying to stay positive and not think about it, but it's hard. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR TEST LWITTE! I'll be praying for you this week! Let us know how it goes!
2) How will I know if my last bleeding a menstrual period or spotting? 3) Do you experience abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> due to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> during Week One? 4) Can I take the pregnancy Test now even if I'm not expecting my next period until end of this month?
Any idea why this could be? I'm still bleeding a little and having some cramping (even at the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>end</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my period). My doctor had me take a home pregnancy test to make sure I wasn't having a miscarriage - it came back negative. I can't get in to see her until next month.... should I be concerned about this??
I got my three days ago and am still having bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> as well. I agree w/ the poster who said it is more like labor pains then menstrual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span>. ugghh I am so frustrated I tried going for a walk today and the contractions (for lack of a better term) got so bad I had to stop. And umm, brooklynn86 I had sex last night and I do believe it made my cramping/back pain worse today.?? I wouldn't recommend it until the cramping at least lessens.
