Growing pains in first trimester

hi there, i was just wondering, i am 6 weeks 5 days now and i was unsure if it is normal not to experience any "growing pains"? i get a few little stitch like feeling every now and again on my lower abdomen and last night i had stomach aches for the whole night but no period like cramps i hear a lot of girls talk about experiencing. i am sorry if this is a silly question i was just curious, as i dont want anything bad to happen this pregnancy as my i lost a bubs last year and it has kind of made me a little more worried about it happening again this time. i go for my first ultrasound on Wednesday so have my fingers crossed all is well. Thank you for you time and once again im sorry i my question sounds silly.

is the question that u dont have growing pains?

that is totally normal to have no feeling of it growing in the 1st trimester. its still really small and your baby is probbly only between 1-2 cm so far.

i wish u best of luck!

thank you so much for your response, i think im just worried because of the previous miscarriages and we want this bubs so much i get nervous when i don't feel pregnant! some days i feel horrible and other days i don't feel anything, and i hear my friends speaking about "growing pains" and i begin thinking well i only get little stitches every now and again (manly at night with hot flushes and toilet runs!!) so something might not be right. i really appreciate your response and kind words. Thank you again

i am 8 weeks and am also experiencing pulling pains. I get a burning sensation under the right rib cage. I have also started to show with a pott belly. I am very scared about this as I had an ectopic 6 years ago and am scared its going to be the same. I have my first ultra sound on tuesday and am scared big time
