I am 4 weeks pregnant and have nausea accompanied by cramping pain in my abdomen. I miscarried back in March and am worried it is happening again.

Please can you advise if the cramping pain is normal for this stage in a pregnancy. I also suffer from wind and heartburn.

Even in a normal pregnancy, cramping is commom. You have a intruder in your uterus and it is norml to feel this. Make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids and have your urine checked for infection. Schedule a ultrasound at 6 weeks, no earlier, to access fetal cardiac activity and you should be half way there. Should you have another miscarriage have your doctor sent the products of conception for pathology and genetic testing if possible.You may want to get testing done if this is another miscarriage for the habitual aborter panel. Protein s anc c, antithrombin antibodies,PT, PTT, Lupus anticoagulant, ANA,homocystine and a few more.. those tests are available at your OBGYN office with a diagnosos of habitual aborter and will be covered by insurance
