I have been told the more babies you have the more you feel the stretching pains

Hi there,
I have just found out im pregnant with baby number 3, i`m around 6 weeks and last night i started to experience some very light cramping and it carried on through the night but stopped if i was laying on my left side, Iv had no spotting. I have been told the more babies you have the more you feel the stretching pains how true is this? And could it be that this is what i am feeling?

Sarah...
Answer: Hi, It is not uncommon to experience cramping in the early weeks. If it has settled and there is no bleeding then it is regarded as normal. Best wishes, Alex
