    Hi all i'm new here, i found out 3 days ago that i am 5 weeks pregnant! I was not expecting this as i have been getting very very bad period pain since the day of my missed period last week. I am still getting them now and it is worrying me very much, i lost my first baby a long long time ago and i'm worried it's happening again. Help?

    I've had these practically all my pregnancy so far and I'm 31 weeks so for me they have been completely normal. Try not to worry too much at this stage your body is still getting used to being pregnant and is stretching and changing. If you are concerned see your gp ask about an early scan...... I had a private scan at 7+4 as I was so bothered but everything was fine I'm sure you will be too.

    Did yours get so bad it stops you in your tracks? I got one last night in bed and i nearly cried it was that bad... it only lasted about 10 seconds if that?

    In the early weeks yes it was pretty bad. I would see your gp to put your mind at ease or ask about an early scan.

    I had constant niggly period pains in early pregnancy and have had a few pains in the last Week or so. Think it's normal as others have said, as it's the uterus stretching.

    My other half just told me it's probably more painful for me because twins run in his family and my body is having to stretch twice as much!!! Oh god...

    It only matters if twins run in your family, not in his family, ifykwim so I wouldn't worry about that for now. Pains are common and there is nth to be afraid of if you don't bleed.
