I'm 6 weeks pregnant and have an aching in my pelvic/abdominal area off and on throughout the day. The nurse didn't seem alarmed, but they won't do an ultrasound for 3 more weeks. Is this a normal feeling? I've always heard pain in abdominal is bad.

I am 5-6 week pregnant and I also am feeling an aching in my abdomen/pelvic throughout the day. I have to wait about 2 1/2 weeks till my first check up. It will be the longest 2 1/2 weeks of my life. I just keep praying that we have a heathy, full-term pregnancy. My first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage, 5 years ago, so I am scarred of that happening again. Every little feeling I get, I fear that it might be a bad sign or something, but I try to remind myself that my body is going through a lot of changes to make room for a baby!
