Still having PMS type cramps

and it's really starting to bother me. You'd think after being pregnant so many times, I'd remember if this is normal, but I can't....and it was interferring with my sleep. I'm still getting those types of cramps that I used to get prior to getting my period. Is that normal?? I'm starting to freak myself out that something is wrong? Thanks!

I'm no expert, but I'd say yes. Both the MW's I've seen at the practice so far have told me it's totally normal and that many women feel worse cramp wise with each pregnancy. I hope it lets up for you soon!

ETA: My awful cramping just started getting better this week, but it was brutal before that. I hope yours doesn't last too long.

Sorry Holly, I don't have any experiene with this. I hope it gets better. If not, I would call your Dr for piece of mind.

It's funny how easy it is to forget some thing with pregnancy and how intimidating it is when things are different. With DD turning 2 in August I thought I remembered things so well but this one is so different! Hope you're feeling better soon!

Snoogle!! Snoogle ALL the way! I had my husband pull it out for me recently cause my body has been more achy in the morning than usual and I think it's cause I need a body pillow. It is soooo comfy and especially nice for when your belly gets really big. It also helps you sleep on your side if you're usually a back sleeper like me.

I hope your cramps ease up soon. Like everyone else said, sounds like normal pregnancy stuff. I can understand how that would be concerning, though.
