Did the pain go away after you went to the bathroom? I know when I am pg, especially in the first trimester, that any cramp or pain sends me worrying. Chances are the pain was bowel related or stretching of ligaments/muscles.

The pink discharge could have been anything. Some women(myself included) have a sensitive cervix, so anything like sex or pelvic exams would cause me to spot for a few days.

As always, if you are concerned, put a call into your OB.

Good luck!

wow..your 6th? cheers to you!
yes, when i was pregnant and after a pelvic exam, the dr. always said there may be slight bleeding so that could be the case as andi suggested.
if it increases or you get bad cramps, it doesnt hurt to call the dr. to be safe.

When I was pregnant I never had any pink discharge, but I know many women that have.  It is very normal.  Now I do believe that you can call your doctor any time you are concerned, they are there for comfort.

Around my 7th or 8th week being pregnant I had pink discharge on the toilot paper. I thougt nothing of it because I read in a pregnancy calendar that it could happen around those weeks. I dont remimber why though... Pregnancy is a strange thing for us rookies.... No clue why, where, or how things happen, they just do.
WOW! 5 going on 6 kids... sheesh I dont see how some women do it. lol. Congratulations!:-)

When I was 8wks pg with my eldest I  had a full on period.  Try and relax if it get worse forget about the doc and just go to the er.
