good day. i am more than three weeks pregnant and have been experiencing low abdomen cramps and more of a "pulling" pain. is this normal?

Dr. Peter Liehr
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Pregnancy Cramps: Cramping in pregnancy is relatively non-specific. It's important to remember that pregnancy is not a normal state for a woman. The uterus has a ton of blood flow and it's expanding to sizes that result on compression of the intestines, bladder, and lungs. Any of this can cause discomfort and cramping. As long as you have no bleeding or severe cramping you should be fine.
