Mild cramps in early pregnancy are normal as everything inside is stretching and preparing for pregnancy. My mw said that cramps were fine as long they were not too painful and accompanied by bleeding.
Good luck xxx

like you I had a miscarriage this was at the beginning of the year. I fell pregnant 2 weeks after and I had a littel cramping and period pains I thought it was happening all over again But like sweetjudy stated a little cramping and pains are ok as your body is adjusting etc! I'm 37 weeks pregnant now.
if the pains get worse followed my bleeding I would call ur midwife or hospital!
i hope everything works out ok for you xx

Agreed! Please don't worry too much. I'm very early pregnant (only 4 weeks), and I've had some mild cramping and brown/very light pink spotting. I've called the advise nurses multiple times this last week, and they all said the same thing. Right now would have been the few days I was supposed to have a period. It's normal to have a little cramping and spotting as your body is still getting used to being pregnant. Also, it could be implantation bleeding. If you just found out you're pregnant... When was the first day of your last period? The time where you should be concerned is when the bleeding and cramping becomes heavier and worse than your normal periods. Otherwise, theres not much you can do until your first ultra sound to see the heart beat (usually after 6 weeks). I know how you feel though. Sometimes it's easy to let the worrying take over. At least for myself, I know that stress might cause problems too, so I have to keep reminding myself that I have three more weeks until my first ultrasound (scan) to see the heartbeat. Try to stay busy, but still go easy on yourself. If you are bleeding and having slight pains, move slower, don't lift as much, cut back on strenuous activity, etc. If you're bleeding and it's your day off, try to lay flat and relax. I am not sure if this even helps, but I hope I can ease your mind a little. Maybe we can support each other through this wonderful time.

I had cramping and bleeding on and off till 10 weeks. It was so bad one night (dark stringy blood and very low backache) the doctor told me to expect the worst n I was convinced I was going to lose her. I'm 30+2 today! Just try and rest as much as possible xx

m in a similar situation ! I'm 36 yrs old and just found out I am 5 weeks pregnant. I am having light cramping and spotting so had an ultrasound, but too soon to see a heart beat. I have to wait 2 weeks to have another and see if all is ok. I wish I could do something, feel helpless. Don't want to get my hopes up. Any advice?

Try not to worry I know it's easier said than done! I had mild cramping at the start and like you I went for a scan but was too early to see everything and I a to go back 2 weeks later and everything was fine. I'm now 28 weeks pregnant so I'm sure all will be fine with u. Have u bled a lot? X

No just spotting, and the dr said it was good that it was a brownish tint. The cramping isn't to bad either but this didnt happen in my last pregnancy bug that was 9 yrs ago! And being 36 Im just worried. Thanks for the kind words! send me some good energy😊 Glad your pregnancy is going well!

If you can, most spas have that amazing pregnancy pillow you lay on and put your belly into! I'm a massage therapist and it helps with that lower back pain! I lay on it with a food baby and it feels good lol haha.
Hope it gets better. Almost there!

Oh Ive never even heard of that il need to have a look the thought of being able to lie on my belly is so appealing just now lol. I always slept on my belly before I was pregnant and not being able to is torture. Glad all going good with you :) x
