Q&A: Why am I cramping at 6 weeks pregnant?
I have been having some mild cramping the past weeks of my pregnancy (I'm only 6 weeks along) but no spotting. I read that you said cramping is normal for baby growth but would I have this "growth cramping" when the embryo is so small? It feels like period cramps but very mild.
The embryo may be small, but the gestational sac is larger and can begin these symptoms very early–as early as 6 weeks.
