No: These kind of cramps are usually just growing pains. It is more worrisome if there is bleeding but even that can be normal. Keep in mind that your risk of miscarriage is about 15% and you usually, but not always, will have some of these symptoms when that happens.

Agree with Dr.: Your Dr. is correct. Mild cramps can be normal. Worsening cramps and or bleeding can be problematic if that happens call the Dr. But as stated, do not worry if you simply have some mild cramps.
