almost 5wks...

Im almost 5wks prego, we tried so hard to get here & finally made it!! I do have a history of miscarriages, 1 was my sons twin @7 wks & 2 others after that around 6-8 wks. anyway, im trying so hard not to freak out & just relax! Way easier said than done, thata for sure but it's been quite some time since i have actually been pregnant so i dont remember a whole lot. I seem to have cramps in my lower abdomen & lower back, nothing severe, basically pms cramps......... is this normal or should i be worried? no blood at all! Thanks in advance!

  • You're fine. The only thing to worry about is bright red blood. You might have some brownish discharge but anything pink to bright red is a reason to get in touch with your doc. A little cramping and discomfort is 100% normal, as is fatigue. Just rest. :)

  • Unless it's consistently in 1 spot, or you see blood, you're probably fine. :) Congrats Mama :)

  • it is very normal, but w your risk of miscarriage you just need to be extra aware of it getting worse or starting to spot.

    i have had 2 miscarriages so i know hiow stressful those first few weeks are. good luck!
