I am pregnant with my second baby- and I had the same thing with this pregnancy..and right around the same time (the end of the 1st trimester).  I talked to my doctor about it, and he said it is perfectly OK because it is just the baby growing and making room in your tummy which can cause some cramping.  As long as you aren't bleeding then it is ok and normal!  If you are bleeding a little it could still be normal- but you want to go see a doctor immediately to make sure.  Best of luck with your pregnancy!
