Scared???

I am only 3 weeks into my pregnancy and I am experiencing mild cramping & pain in my lower abdomen.  It isnt a bad pain.  I was wondering if this is normal or should I be concerned.  I am worried because my hcg level is a little low.

I don't know about the low hcg level, but I still get some mild cramping and I'm 6 1/2 wks pregnant.  It makes me a little nervous too, but my dr has assured me it is normal.  I don't know about the relationship between cramping and low hcg's though.  I know cramping is common though.

I'm not sure about the low hcp level either but I know mild cramping isn't bad its the real bad cramping you have to worry about but mild cramping is just your uterous expanding.

I would let your doctor know your concerns and just try and take it easy for the next few days.  I will keep positive thoughts for you and your baby!

Hi, mild cramping is very normal the first few weeks of pregnancy. I wouldnt worry unless it gets severe or is acompanied by bleeding...It sounds like you are just fine though.
