in Pregnancy Period General by anonymous
I recently discovered that I am almost 5 weeks pregnant and experiencing cramps similar to premenstrual cramps, but without any bleeding. Given my previous miscarriage four months ago, I am extremely worried. Is it normal to have cramps during this stage of pregnancy?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

It is common for women to experience mild cramping during the early stages of pregnancy, including around five weeks. These cramps are usually caused by the uterus expanding and preparing for the growth of the baby. However, since you have had a previous miscarriage, it's understandable that you are concerned. While some level of discomfort can be considered normal, it is always best to consult with your healthcare provider to ensure everything is progressing as expected. They will be able to evaluate your specific situation and provide guidance based on your medical history. Remember that every pregnancy is different, and what may be normal for one person may not be for another. Stay in close communication with your healthcare provider throughout your pregnancy journey for personalized advice and reassurance.

I have been having cramps since two weeks before my period was due and here we are 6 weeks two days in and still cramping. I measured  5 weeks 6 and saw a gestational sac and yolk sac but no fetal pole yet. I'd like to say they are normal as long as they are not severe and u are not bleeding. I myself had two miscarriages so any cramp and discharge I'm always checking because I'm scared of miscarrying. Cramping early in pregnancy is normal. As long as it's not severe and to one side and no blood you should be ok.
You can check and urinary infection. Body need little time to accept new state, also around five week is time for period if is not accepted all fully body can be confused. Only if it is painful you need to worry. Cramps you can have from meny reason like I said urinary infection, ect.

Make an appointment to see the OB maybe he can do an hCG test to ease your worries. I've had two miscarriages and so I worry a lot to just try and relax. Hopefully it's just round ligament pain.
