HELP!!! Having cramps at 8 weeks!

I went to a conference an hour away. I went on Sunday, did a lot of walking Sun, Mon, and today and sit in hard chairs most of the day. I also didn't eat right.  Last night I had some mild cramping down low in my abdoment. Today on the way home across my hip line started aching and cramping and the cramping down low has started again.  The cramping even goes down into my vaginal area.

I had a miscarriage in October at 8 weeks and I'm 8 weeks now. I started bleeding on Friday and didn't start cramping until Sunday night during my miscarriage.  So I'm wondering if this is just from all the activity I've done or if it aounds like a miscarriage.  

Please respond and please be honest. I'm really scared but need to know if anyone else has had this .
Thanks

I think a minimal amount of cramping is acceptable as long as it's not accompanied by any bleeding.  Take it easy and just watch for signs. Have you been to a first u/s yet to establish viability?  Try to relax :)

It could be all the walking you did. Try to relax stay in bed if possible.
I read you had a M/C on October so did I. I'm now pregnant again I
started taking Progerteron shoots weekly my OB said it help a lot with  
the pregnacy Nothing can prevent a M/C but its better to try to do all
we can to help. I really hope you feel better try not to stress and get ALL
the rest you can.

Thanks ladies. Sebastian congrats. when are you due. I'm in Nov. hopefully. Did the doctor say why you miscarried?  I had a huge bloodclot.  I had my progesterone and hcg checked already and the numbers were perfect. No I haven't had an ultrasound yet. Its on the 15th.

Thanks. Im due 8/25th I was 20weeks when i M/C i'm 20weeks now but things are diferent I have to be in bed rest wicth Ive gotten use to i guess. I never found out what happend all the Dr. said was I have incompetent cervix when ive has 2 full terms pregnacys my yungest is 7 my oldest is 10. I had a Cerclage at 14 weeks and getting my progesteron shoots I have to pay $75 weekly for my shoots there not covered by my Insurance but its worth it. My Dr. said progesteron helps to make your Uteros firmer I have read a lot on it but try to stick only to the positive things they say. Try to get all the rest you can and DONT compare what happend to you last time when you where 8 weeks and your 8weeks now take it from me I keep my mind bussy and thank God everyday and nigthfor allowing me to keep my baby in the oven till August. I'll pray for you :) Dont worry relax thats our best medecine take care.........
