10 weeks preg & have cramps
Hi there,

I am 10 weeks pregnant. The past 2 days I have been experiencing cramping on my lower left and right sides. It sometimes is a sharp but short pain that comes and goes in a split second, but it occurs from time to time. I feels strange - a bit like period pains and a bit like a slight stitch.
I dont have any strange discharges or anything like that. I am also urinating quite alot - I wake up like 4 times during the night!!
Is this normal or is there anything to worry about??

This could be stretching of the ligaments of the uterus. If you have any burning with urination though, you should see your doctor. I presume that you do not have amniotic fluid draining out the vagina, as this is a problem.
