Is it normal to feel a few crampy pains?

hi alex
i am 13 weeks pregnant and feeling great exept i was wondering is it normal to feel a few pains they are not too painful and feel crampy somtimes and muscular others and they are not constant the just come and go and i may not have them for hours and then i may feel them for about 20 min they are only dull and there is no spotting or bleeding. thanks

Answer: Hi, It is very common to feel stretching and some cramping in early pregnancy as the ligaments stretch. If there is no bleeding and it is not severe then this is considered to be a normal part of pregnancy. Best wishes, Alex
