It's time to see OB: It is time to see a OB MD and get started with your pregnancy care and find out if the cramping is normal for an intra uterine pregnancy or not.

Cramps: cramping with implantation and with early stretching of the uterus is relatively common. Even mild spotting is common. Would be more concerned if pain is one sided.
