I've been getting these weird cramps lately. They seem too high to be my uterus, because my uterus is only supposed to be around my belly button and the cramps are up right below my sternum. It kind of feels like my diaphragm or something. I called my doc and she said take a pepcid like it was heartburn or something! I told her it wasn't heartburn, it was a cramp, because I can lean back and stretch them out, but she said yeah sometimes heartburn feels like that!

What tha he||?

Well tru is still moving around in there so she's ok at least!

They come and go. They are definitely cramps... I can feel that it is definitely a muscle that is tightening. I just had one that hurt... They haven't hurt before.

Oh it must the muscles stretching!!! I know, I had them. I remember now. Ok when im sitting for a long time and I get up-it tightens like a cramp and im like aaahhh!!! And then after a bit it goes away. Then it cramps up again and I feel like a weirdo cuz it makes me walk funny lol. Its stretching though. I read it on babycenter.Com they said your stomach is getting bigger (which yours is) and your muscles have to stretch out so it cramps up. Youll be fine, but they will come and go alot
