Hormone changes: The hormones of pregnancy relax smooth muscles like those at the urethra, the opening of the bladder. Decreasing caffeine may help. Doing kegel exercises which strengthen the muscle will help both during pregnancy and to avoid problems afterwards.

Yes: Light cramping early in pregnancy can be related to the cyst on the ovary that ovulated producing the hormone Progesterone which is supporting the pregnancy. The cramping is usually transient minimal in nature. Any pain that last for a longer period of time or is also accompanied with bleeding should be communicated to your doctor.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Are cramps in early pregnancy normal?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Edward Biggerstaff III
Obstetrics and Gynecology 49 years experience
Yes: As the uterus enlarges, cramping in early pregnancy is frequently due to spasm of ligaments which are attached to top of the uterus. It may occur when walking, getting up from sitting, and can be especially bad with sudden movement. The cramping from round ligaments is not associated with bleeding or pain that is severe and constant. As with any concerns, the patient should see her obstetrician.
