Early Pregnancy Symptoms: Cramping
Cramping which ranges from mild to moderate is something which affects many women in the first trimester of pregnancy. Often it feels as if your period is just about to start, and it comes and goes throughout the day for the first few weeks of pregnancy. Rest assured, however, this is a very common early pregnancy symptom.
Although uncomfortable and even frightening, cramping pains are a normal part of pregnancy. However, if you experience any bleeding, if your pregnancy symptoms suddenly cease, or if you have severe pain, including pain which is confined to one side, call your GP immediately as these can be symptoms of both miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy.
