Cramping and Bloating - How long does it last?

Postby baylorbear33 » Mon Jul 06, 2009 9:52 pm

Hey there, I'm just curious as to how long the AF-like cramping and bloating lasts during early pregnancy? I just can't remember from my first pregnancy. It's one of those things that is re-assuring on one hand because it tells me that something is going on down there; however, it's alarming on the other hand because I worry there is too much cramping. Just trying to worry about one less thing... Thanks to you all.

hi baylorbear33!
First congrats on your pregnancy I wish you a happy and healthy 9 months! :D I have slight cramping on and off now but it was heavier at the beginning of the pregnancy up until week 9 or 10 it got better for me as the pregnancy progressed. Bloating went away around the same time at around 10 wks my ovaries were huge at my 7 wks scan and thats why the bloating and they went back to normal size at my 9.5 wks scan I drank lots and lots of gatorade and v8 juice.
