Cramps : Many women have cramps and pregnancy. In your case it sounds like it may be related to your bowel function. Perhaps taking MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) every day would help. Make sure you're getting prenatal care and have had a visit with the doctor to make sure you have a normal healthy pregnancy.
