Hi nicole,

i'm assuming you are pregnant. From about 20 weeks of pregnancy, I get terrible cramping pain in my abdomen if I sneeze, or even if I get up quickly from lying down. I asked the doctor about it and she said not to worry, it was all normal. I am 28 weeks pregnant now, and it happens quite a bit. If your pain is accompanied by bleeding then you should consult your doctor or go to the hospital immediately.

Good luck

I heard if you cough or anything and get pains in your abdomen you should talk to the the doctor because it could be a warning sign. I'm not trying to be mean or concern anyone, it's just better to be safe...

Thats actually good advice cara. Sometimes cramping in early pregnancy can be the first sign of a miscarriage. I had a miscarriage in may of last year, and the cramping I had at that time was definately not normal. It was very painful, and I knew something just wasn't right. I then started bleeding, accompanied by terrible lower back pain, and I miscarried about 3 days after. Cramping in any stage of pregnancy should be cause for concern, and it is absolutely essential to be recieving extra attention from your doctor during this time.

Good luck everyone.
