I cramped with all my pregnancies, try not to worry, it's normal! I'd stop checking your cervix since you're pregnant now, though. You don't want to chance infection.

This is the first time it's gotten bad this pregnancy, I can't remember if I cramped with DS. I'm not really having any of the symptoms I had with my first and it has me worried that maybe it's because baby isn't going to stick :( I'm not checking it every day, but when I felt that stuff come out I went to the bathroom and there was no blood, but I checked the inside for bleeding and just happened to touch my cervix cos it was so low :/

I've been cramping a lot as well. I had my first scan Tuesday and go in for another on this coming Tuesday. We saw the heartbeat Tuesday and I was measuring right on with ovulation dates at 5 weeks 6 days. Try not to psyche yourself out with cramping. I get it though as I am constantly rushing to the bathroom thinking I'm bleeding, but it's just discharge.

Any time I cramped real bad during pregnancy I needed to poop.

That's for sure. And now that we have finally conceived, I don't just want A baby. I want THIS baby. I'm already so attached :(

I did that all through my first trimester with DS, but I haven't actually had a tonne of discharge this time around. I'm only 5w3d so still early days, I have to wait another 2 weeks for my first scan :(

I thought that, cos I haven't actually gone today but my "i need to poop" cramps are usually higher and more to the back. These cramps are in my abdomen by my hips :/

I cramped so bad I wanted to die sometimesand kept checking for blood. Instead I got extremely nasty goopy discharge. I still cramp pretty bad. Instead of thinking the worst/ which is hard in know/ try thinking....well baby is reallllly getting in that womb nice and good tomgrt comfy for the long haul. Works for me. I'm almost 10 weeks now and right on schedule with my  first due date. I get pretty bad cramps somst if the time even now and sometimes so bad they make me poop. Excuse the spelling problems my tablet is currently malfunctioning like a tool.



That's a good way of looking at it :) 
They've pretty much stopped now, so I"m thinking it was because I was dehydrated :/ I'm so hopeless with drinking water :(

I actually just posted about light bleeding and cramping for me.  Calling the doctor in the morning just to be safe. Sticky dust all around.
