So a friend told me that with her first two kids she didn't have cramping or many stretching pains but with her third it was terrible. I now understand what she means! In my other two pregnancies I had no issues of feeling these bothersome pains. However, today it feels someone has ripped my lower abdomen and is using it as a trampoline. Should I be concerned or is this normal? No spotting or anything just cramps.
Glad I'm not the only one. I did call my dr today since I have still been having some and he said that it is normal but that if I keep having them he will have me come in. Of course he told me to take Tylenol, drink lots of water and relax. Apparently this week a lot of ligaments are stretching.
This is my third too and I'm feeling exactly the same. I really feel more crampy, stretchy and sore with this one. Esp in my back too. Maybe it's just because I'm older and running around after two now?

Yes running after my other two while pregnant has truly made me age in a short period of time.....or at least it feels that way . When I get an opportunity to relax the cramping goes away. I have had the stretching and cramping for about 3 days now its not to bad but it is enough that I have to stop what I'm doing sit down a second and drink some water. I did call the dr and read some articles and this is normal so I don't feel so bad. And yes the back pain sucks also but I'm a little more use to it since my son sat on my sciatic the last 3 months of pregnancy and they hit a nerve with the epidural during my second delivery. So aches and pains in my back and hips is a little more norm for me.
