|hey, I am 6 weeks and I am cramping a lot throughout the day. It mainly hurts on my left side. I don't know if this is normal I need to know .Please help. Also, prenatal pills make me sick is it ok to take my prenatal pills right before I go to sleep?|
|my midwife said cramping and sharp, stabbing pains on the left & right side of the uterus are perfectly normal. I guess the real concern would be uterine pain and bleeding and/or spotting.
I'm only 9 weeks along, but everything i've read online indicates that the uterus is normally about the size of your fist but by 7 or 8 weeks it's the size of a grapefruit. It doesn't get that big without some kind of growing pain! The ligaments that support the uterus aren't exactly used to that type of stretching - I think that's where the majority of the cramping comes from.
