Light cramping is normal. At your stage it could just be the baby making itself nice and cozy in your uterus. You will have this cramping as your pregnancy continues because your uterus is growing. It's when you have severe cramping (like taking your breath away) with heavy bleeding is when you should be worried. I am a little over 9 weeks and still get this cramping. I asked my doctor about it and she told me the above advice. They will probably check your HCG levels to see how high they are and probably do so about every 2-3 days to make sure they are rising like they should. They may also do an ultrasound but they may not do one until they get your HCG levels back because they need to be so high in order to see anything on an ultrasound (I think at least above 1000 but I also heard 2000). I had an ultrasound done due to spotting at 4 weeks and 4 days and all I could see was the gestational sac. Good luck and I hope everything works out good for you at your appt.
Thanks so much for your comment. It makes me feel a lot better! =) I just want this baby to stay with me til the end in Dec. I'll just hope for the best & just stop worrying so much & let nature take its course.
Yes, light cramping is normal. You will probably have bloodwork done and an internal exam. It is very rare to have an US the day of your first appointment as this normally needs to be scheduled in advance (and you will have special instructions).
Thanks so much ladies. I now feel better about this. =) I love this site. It's so helpful!!
