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.

Don't panic!!! Mild crampiness is caused by ligaments stretching to support your uterus, and slight spotting that is not red in color (pinkish is not a problem) is also nothing to be worried about. If you have heavy bleeding or painful cramps that feel like a period accompanied by red bleeding, that's more of a problem to call your doc about.It happened to me early in my pregnancy too, and I freaked out and called my doctor, and she reassured me that it was nothing to worry about. My pregnancy and daughter were both perfectly normal and healthy! Try not to worry too much unless your symptoms become like the ones I described above. Good luck!! :-)
