Can be normal: It can be very normal to have some fairly strong cramps during early pregnancy, it is extremely common. There is the very small chance that it could indicate a problem with the pregnancy, and so you should see your ob/gyn for an exam and sonogram to ensure nothing is wrong and the baby is developing appropriately. If you have spotting, or heavier bleeding, call you doctor right away.
