Ive had some really sharp cramps to the point where i was crying my eyes out and went to the hospital and had to wait a AWESOME 8 hours to be seen..ugh. Anyways, the hospital said its normal, and its the uterus expanding to the babys growth.. I dont have it on a regular basis, but ive had it about maybe 4 different occasions where I really thought I was for sure having a miscarriage! Hell it even happened 2 weeks ago, but at my ultrasound 2 weeks ago everything was perfectly normal:). Call your doctor though to double check, they can schedule you for an ultrasound to make sure that things are okay, but it seems to be normal with my friends who had babies as well. Hope all is ok!Smile
