I have stomach cramps pretty often. This is my first baby. Is this normal?

Cramps are very normal without bleeding but if blood accompanies them or they get unbearable then hopsital it is. But if it's just a normal cramp everything's ok because your belly is just making room for your growing baby.

Some cramps are ok, I've had some a few but they were more the constipated ones and some because of round ligament pain. You only need to worry if it feels like bad period cramps.

Some period-like cramps are normal, however... They can happen often, but don't usually last more than a few hours at a time, unless something is actually abnormal. Normally, these cramps are just the effects of a stretching and growing uterus, usually known as round-ligament pain.

No worries, I get cramping all the time and so far everything has been normal and healthy :)

Are the cramps because you're constipated or does it feel more like period cramps? If it is because you're not going to the bathroom as much, it is probably a normal part of pregnancy. You could try eating grapes, raisin bran, prunes, and other high fiber foods to help. If it is more like period cramps, you should talk to your doctor about it.
