Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

I am 6 weeks pregnant, and have extreme cramping. Is this normal?

4 answers
I have very bad cramping, almost to the point of doubling over, all throughout my lower abdomen. I went to the doctor and the ultrasound was normal, and my blood work was normal. She said that everything was fine, but its still worrisome. Anyone else experience this? Or any advice on how to make it lessen?

just relax, your insides are making room for your growing uterus and the round ligaments surrounding your uterus  are stretching. just one of the many discomfort of pregnancy. Good luck!

if it is severe then you need to call the doctor!
I am 11 weeks and went through the exact same cramping! It's COMPLETELY NORMAL! Don't worry if your bun is still in the oven then that''s what matters!
