Im 15 weeks 3 days today and am still experiencing a crampy feeling. I had strong cramping pains in early pregnancy, which seemed to ease off for a few weeks but now its back! I know there is a lot of growing / stretching going on in there, but this feels like af cramps. Ive seen my Ob last Wed and bub was fine (had quick ultrasound). Guess im just looking for some reassurance that other people have or are experiencing this in there 2nd trimester.

I had cramping on and off until at least 20 weeks. If is it just cramping it's pretty normal but if you get any bleeding get checked out.

I think you should ask for a trans vaginal scan to check your cervix (the length of it).
I had AF cramping in my first pregnancy (without bleeding) and it turned out to be my cervix slowly dialating.
It's probably nothing but it wouldn't hurt to check it out/ask the question.
It most likely is just normal stretching or could even be wind pain (sometimes feels like AF pain), just thought I would share my experience since you were asking for advice.
All the best.

I had quite a bit of first trimester camps too. But I can remember at 17 weeks had cramps which lasted a few days. Midwife thought it was just stretching pain and to take Panadol. It worked. Second opinion at GP seemed to agree. It went away though after I has some antibiotics... Did a test for UTI which came up with nothing but it was weird it went away. It may have been a coincidence.

Thanks everyone, I sent my ob and email who said we need to rule out a uti and she is happy to give me a referral for transvaginal scan to check my cervix, so I will do both tomorrow. At least if they show nothing then I can feel more confident it is just growing/stretching pain. Thanks again x
