I have been having cramps since last night. They're not real sharp or anything, but they do hurt. They're in my uterus (ha since I was in the ER at 5 1/2 weeks I've been trying to identify where ALL the sharp pains and cramps are located). It got bad last night where if my lower abdomen was touched it hurt really bad (my husband accidentally laid his hand there). I got up to go to the bathroom and when I peed it hurt like I was dehydrated (my sides would hurt real bad).
I know some cramping is normal, but since this pregnancy is so different than my other two I feel like I'm new to this! There was no spotting or blood or anything and my husband and I did have sort of rough sex last night a few hours before the cramps started. Do you think this is anything I should be concerned about?
I would call my dr, but they would probably tell me to go to the ER and I don't want to wait 3-5 hours for them just to come take my blood and MAYBE do an exam and u/s (it depends on what dr is working if they'll even do an exam). Ha, I feel like I'm extremely paranoid, which maybe I am.
It doesn't hurt to move or anything (maybe sneeze, but just in my side) and the cramps have stopped for now (although they were there off and on very mildly this morning). I've been drinking Ginger Ale and 1/2 juice 1/2 water drinks. I even recently started drinking some of that pedialite junk (it doesn't take very good, ha ha).
Anyway, how normal are these cramps? Is anyone else experiencing them?
