Cramps — The Bump
November 2017 Moms


I am 7 weeks.  Up until today I have had minor cramping sometimes.  This morning I did a yoga class that had some crunch like ab workout.  Ever since I have had cramping all day and it's more medium intensity.  I am wondering it the ab workout could have triggered a miscarriage.  I track my BBT and I woke up at 2:30am so I decided to take my temp and it seems to have dropped.  But this is not the normal time I take it.  Any thoughts?

Re: Cramps

  • Oops sorry I thought I was posting to the symptoms board!!!
  • An ab workout probably didn't trigger a miscarriage, but you should listen to your body. From what I've read, ab workouts are ok to do in first tri if you're used to doing them already. I would take it easy and do no/only light ab work moving forward if it's causing cramping. For the record, cramping can be totally normal. I've been pretty crampy this whole time.

  • Just relax today. Drink lots of water and lay down. That's what I had been told last time if I was having cramps. I don't think an ab work out would trigger miscarriag. Maybe you're having round ligament pain? Either way, take it easy and drink plenty of water 
  • OP responded on Weekly Symptoms that it was a BM.
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*
