The last couple of days i've been having these cramps that arent as bad as menstrual cramps but I can feel them. I'm not bleeding or anythang and I just figured it was probably from the baby growing and stretching. Then I was talkin about them to somebody at work and they didnt think I should be doing that. They said any type of cramping was bad. I thought id call the doctor tomorrow but I just wanted to get others opinions as well. Also I seen where somebody was 16 weeks and was going to find out if it was a boy or girl. I know that the sonos arent always 100% accurate, but would it be fairly easy to be able to tell by then. I go in to my next Dr. Appt. On friday and id like to know what im having I just thought it would be to early. Anyways...Any replies would be helpful about the cramping.

Cramping is always normal it just depends on how severe the cramping is. But to be safe then sorry yes let your doctor know.. About the sono of the baby. They can tell as early as 16 weeks but not in all ases like mine for instance. Btw they say the best accurate time is between 24 and 28 weeks.. Good luck to you
