Welcome to ehealthforum,
If pregnancy has been confirmed, then the cramps that you describe could be due to Braxton Hick’s contractions. If the symptoms have persisted, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist to rule out any other serious causes (especially rule out scar tenderness or placental invasion on the scar from previous C-section). If symptoms are severe, or persistent (suggestive of uterine overactivity), your doctor/gynecologist might consider starting you on uterine relaxants to help you carry on pregnancy smoothly. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
