Cramping is pretty normal and can happen at any point during pregnancy. As long as it is not severe and you are not also having back pain with the cramping, you're probably fine.i had some cramping early on with this pregnancy, but s didn't have any with my first three. It was a little concerning to me since I didhave experience it before, but everything was fine. I've also had round ligament pains from the beginning, which for me feel like I'm being stabbed in the lower abdomen on one side or the other. It's awful, but normal.
I am about on my fifth week as well (i say about because i havn't offically gone to a doctor yet....) Anyways today i started having like this mild crampinig on my left side as well but it's only like a few times through-out the day... From what i have read on forms it's commen for this to happen <3

Yes cramping is very normal, I am 15 weeks and I have cramped off and on since I found out. Sometimes the cramps were so bad that I thought I may start to bleed (whick I didnt). I called my doctor and they told me that it is normal. Good Luck and Congrads
