Depends: If you are involved in a exercise program currently, you can continue your same level of activity. Consult your doctor before begining any new exercise program. I recommend keeping well hydrated and avoid getting over heated.

Is cramping one of the signs and symptoms of 4 weeks pregnant?

Symptom: Cramping is a symptom of many things, it is not a sign - but it would not be unusual in an early pregnancy. If you are pregnant and cramping, consult your doctor. If you are asking 'could i be pregnant, ' do a home test. Good luck!

Of course, but...: The GI tract has a very limited # of symptoms to signal its distress--nausea/vomiting, diarrhea/constipation, bloating, pain, fullness, bleeding, etc. As you know, many of these characterize ibs, but are also seen with inflammatory, infectious, ischemic, malabsorptive, & functional disorders. Directed lab work, imaging, biopsies, stool studies will answer your question as to cause & treatment.
