Down sides of pregnancy

So, last night I wake up at 3:30 am. I have cramps from my sternum to my pelvis. They were worse than anything I have ever experienced. I went to the bathroom, and everything seemed fine. The cramps were mostly gone by time I went to work. They seemed to go down when I had to walk around the yard looking for my dog (who I swear is acting like a real teenager). Someone told me the cramps are my body's way of preparing for pregnancy and birth.

Also, at work they won't let me do physically demanding things. Today, they wouldn't let me sit on the floor and look through a box. My husband on the other had thinks I should do everything he can. Which my body does not agree with.

Its my understanding that cramping is totally normal, if its not followed by bleeding. I was getting the *worst* gas cramps almost daily for a few weeks, but they passed with time!

Hopefully you aren't woken up with those again.
