Mild/Dull Cramps/Pressure

Very Early Pregnancy Symptom

Symptom Details

Some women describe the cramps they experience in early pregnancy as mild cramps or dull pressure low in the abdomen. Cramps in early pregnancy are not only common but very normal. There are a tremendous number of changes occurring in your body so cramping is to be expected. Some women feel cramping as early as implantation when the embryo attaches itself to the uterus (6-12 days after ovulation). Cramps are also described as feeling like PMS or period cramps, quick sharp pains, pinching/pulling or little twinges like pokes, tingles or bubbles.

Comparison Chart

The chart below shows a comparison between the number of times this symptom was experienced by pregnant vs non-pregnant women.


**NOTE: Data for 15-21 dpo tends to be lower than expected as many women stop tracking symptoms after a positive pregnancy test.
