I was 6 weeks pregnant on friday pasted. My husband and I are really excited as this is our first but i have been getting what feels like period cramps and i dont know if this is normal or not. The doctor says that as long as there is no blood i am not to worry. I may be over reacting as this is our first but has anyone else experienced this? Any advise welcome Wink

Hello - I just found out I am pregnant 2 weeks ago (8 weeks pregnant currently). I had the same issue. I prolonged taking a pregnancy test because I was having "menstral" cramps and thought my period would be coming soon. My doctor told me the cramps are from the uterus growing and preparing for pregnancy. I double checked a book a bought on pregnancy and it said the same. 8 weeks and I still get cramps now and then. Today I am scheduled for my first ultrasound. VERY nervous! Best of luck to you!!

aww, im happy to hear that! i cried at my ultrasound a few weeks ago. i had a blighted ovum in february.. so i was scared there wasnt going to be anything in there again this time. i keep the ultrasound picture on my kitchen counter in a frame to remind me every day how lucky i am <3 im very glad that your ultrasound went great! once they see/hear the heartbeat your chance for miscarriage drops to about 3%! which, when i was at the doc, was the best news in the world to hear. so dont worry about the cramping.. everything seems to be going great for you

cramp and discharge
Hey Pammie, i am about 5weeks now - and went for my first doc appt yesterday. i have been getting cramps and a bit of spotting. in my case my progesterone hormones were low, so my doc gave me some meds for the next 14 days to boost it. My blood test came back fine and according to scan so far so good. go see your caregiver to put ur mind to ease. good luck hun x

I havent personally had it Pammie123, but I have heard of implantation bleeding, which is just very light bleeding from the egg planting itself into the uterine wall! I wouldnt sweat it, but If you get more pain and bleeding, make sure you tell your doctor.

Hi. I'm 5w4d and i had (WARNING: TMI) light pinkish spotting, yesterday, w/brownish stains, then nothing in the evening and nothing today. I don't have cramps nor AF symptoms. We're praying this is not another CP. My u/s is on 07/23 to see what is going on inside. Congrats to everyone expecting. We had DET/IVF on 06/23.
