With every pregnancy I have some cramping and some growing pains. I have always wondered what is normal and what is not, so I asked my midwife Richelle Jolley and she explains it very well in this video. ***Please contact your own doctor or midwife if you experience cramping during pregnancy. Everybody is different and it’s important to contact your own personal doctor to make sure everything is ok with you and your personal situation.
Normal vs. Abnormal Cramping During Pregnancy
For an additional resource, check out the baby center article on the same topic. It’s pretty descriptive and helps answer many of my questions about the cramping I’m experiencing right now!
If you have a hard time relaxing at night because of growing pains or mild cramping, I would also suggest taking a warm Epsom Salt bath. This helps relax the muscles for hours at a time which can help you get some much needed rest! A warm heating pad on your back may ease up cramping quite a bit as well.
