WAS ALSO TOLD THAT HAVE A LOT OF CYSTS ON OVARIES AM HAVING SOME CRAMPS AND LOWER BACK PAIN WAS NOT TOO CONCERNED AS I HAVE NEVER HAD A LOSS THIS EARLY IN THE PREGNANCY IM NOT SURE WHAT I SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR AM STILL WAITING ON DR TO CALL ME. THAT'S ALL I SEEM TO DO IS WAIT AND SEE IF SOMEONE WILL TELL ME WHAT THEY KNOW AM SCARED THAT IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN. AM I READING TOO MUCH INTO THIS ONCE AGAIN? OR SHOULD I PAY ATTENTION TO MY GUT ???
Hi. I understand what you are going through, I myself am in the middle of what the dr thinks is my second m/c. I also have really bad cramps, but I am also bleeding. The two together is never a good sign. In your case thought from what I have read, it is ok to get cramps because that could just be your body and insides moving and stretching.If they are light cramps I wouldn't worry to much but if they get so bad you cant take it call the ER. You know your own body, I would trust your judgment. Good Luck. Wishing you well.
Sorry you are experiencing so much loss in your life.
Cramps in early pregnancy and lower back pains are all normal. As the above poster said, it is a cause for concern when these are accompanied with bleeding.
Don't forget that you have experienced loss, but you also have 3 children. Also when I had a scan at 5 weeks we only saw a sac, the hb was seen at 7 weeks, so don't read too much into what you saw at yourlast scan.
