Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Some cramps are expected in pregnancy due to hormonal changes, gas, constipation etc. If you have a tipped or retroverted uterus then this can also cause pain. It can also be due to infection.

Any sharp pain in the abdomen should be immediately shown to the gynecologist. It can be due to gas, threatened abortion, infection or due to unrelated causes such as kidney or gall bladder stones. Ectopic pregnancy should also be ruled out.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
