Hey ladies. First off, I am a massive worrier. After suffering several miscarriages I found out yesterday I am 4 weeks pregnant. The test line was very clear and I ran to the doctors that afternoon and she confirmed I was with another test. So obviously I am ecstatic. Although I am cramping rather badly tonight. Is this normal? I've felt almost like I'm stretching over the last week or two. But this feels like period pains and I can not sleep with worry. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I have had awful cramps with this pregnancy right from the beginning up to around 15 weeks where its now more stretching and such from the muscles and ligaments.
I found a warm bath and a hot water bottle helped when I lay down x
My gp told me it was all normal but if I did get unbearable pain or bleeding to go to a& e.
Best wishes xx

I still have the pains but thankfully I haven't bled. Is it okay to take a bath? Id read somewhere not to take one in the first trimester but I know it will help the pains. I even took another test this morning I was so worried.

I never read anywhere to not take a bath, just to be cautious it's not too hot and that you don't slip getting in or out.
I'm on my 6 th baby and have kept to my baths as I usually do ( maybe swapped to a shower when I can't get out easily lol) and I can say I never had any problems but I'm sure you can ask your midwife or Dr.
Hope you feel better soon x
