Hi everyone, I'm new to this. Expecting my first baby and from my working out im about 6 and a half weeks pregnant.
A few times now I have had the feelings of period pains.. Not painful, but just uncomfortable and only lasting a few seconds.
Can someone reassure me this is normal? Has anyone else experienced this or should I be worried? Xx

Hey hun, congratulations firstly! What you are experiencing is completely normal. Your uterus is stretching and you may experience round ligament pain too xx

Yes completely normal but scary I know. I had them from 5to 6.5 weeks. I'm now 7w3d and only get a twinge once and awhile drinking alot of water has definitely helped. Also found out I'm having twins:)

Thankyou both so much. We haven't told anybody yet and as its my first I felt a little lost with who to speak to!
Really appreciate your help. I will try to relax a little more now :)

Bubbles, I'm the same - I'm about 6 weeks but cramps were my first symptom. I have had them (albeit quite mildly) from what must have been about 3 weeks. The thing that made me think they weren't just AF cramps is the fact they seem to last for a few days, go away then come back. They seem to be dying down now though.
