I'm eight weeks and noticed a lot of cramping when this pregnancy started (also my third). To the point that I felt like I was going to start my period and gush everything out.. I do think my uterus is more sensitive and tempermental than it was before because I was also still having random contractions throughout the day like what you have after you give birth, and I think part of it too is that this baby is going to be close to my last one (I was seven months pp). Once I hit seven weeks the contractions and cramping all stopped though and I haven't noticed it since. We also had an early u/s and were able to see the baby's heartbeating so that was extra reassuring. I just hope that the cramping and contractions aren't super bad once braxton hicks start

If you have not done so already, call your doctor or midwife. There is a good chance that this is nothing, but it could also be a problem and your doctor or midwife will always prefer that you call than not. Good luck, and I hope all is well.
