Is lower abdominal pain normal during pregnancy?

I am around 5 weeks pregnant. I have slight discomfort/pain in my lower abdominal area.Kind of like pressure. I'm just really worried because my first pregnancy ended with a miscarriage. Please let me know if you have experienced the same things. I don't go to the doctor until May 19th so I am trying to find out if I need to go sooner.

  • I am about 5 weeks, as well, and experience almost constant mild cramps and lower backache. I am not too worried. My first pregnancy went perfectly well, and I experienced the same thing, just a little less often. Considering your last pregnancy, you should probably be seen as soon as possible just to make sure it is not something serious. I wish you the best!
