Welcome to ehealthforum.
Nausea is a common symptom in pregnancy. So is abdominal cramps. But if the nausea and cramps are bad, and affecting your daily activities and nutrition, then consider discussing with your gynecologist/obstetrician to prescribe you safe drugs to control the nausea and if the cramps are bad and getting increased in intensity, then it should not be ignored. It suggests overactive uterus. You might consider requesting for getting started on uterine relaxants to avoid chances of miscarriage.
Take care.
