I'm new to the site and need some advice. I'm 8weeks pregnant and have been getting a lot of lower back and abdominal pains but yesterday and today the pain has moved up to just below my rip area. This is my 1st pregnancy and I'm kinda freaking out as I've been trying for this baby for the last 3years (I suffer from severe PCOS on both ovaries) Is it normal to be getting these pains or should I be worried? My first doctors appointment isn't for another 2 weeks and with all the complications I've had, I'm really worried it could be a bad sign. Please help!! x

Hey so there is no need to worry unless you start getting some bleeding it should make you feel better thst a lot of the miscarriage stories and problems of pregnancy I have read about the cramping and blleedin are within hours from each other with my first pregnancy the whole first trimester I had on and off cramping you have to remember that not only is your uterus expanding for your baby but also your organs now need to shift up higher into your upper rib cage so feeling tender ,cramping ,bloating any discomfort really that is not excruciating is normalwith. my son I also had a little bit of brown spotting week 6 and week 9 which was also normal but you need to look out for is any bright red blood try not to stress too much whatever is going to happen is going to happen if you really get a lot of anxiety about it ask your doctor if they can do an early dating ultrasound just to make sure everything's okay. I am currently 5 weeks pregnant with my second pregnancy and I have been having on and off dull cramps like AF is coming also a few sharp cramps now and then no bleeding very bloated abdomen is definitely not comfortable but my doctor assured me my blood work looks great and I'm doing well but I think I will ask for an ultrasound around eight weeks just to make sure. congratulations!
