pains early stages of pregnancy

Hi just found out I am at least three weeks pregnant from home pregnancy tests (sites keep saying im 6weeks). But for last week I hav been having a little sharp pelvic pain on righthand side,sometimes centre of lower tummy. Thats why i was suprised i was pregnant as i thought it was period pain. Should i be worried?

In early pregnancy understand that a lots going on and your uterus is getting ready to nurture this baby so you will feel many things even some cramps sometimes... I think as long as there is no blood or severe cramps where u can't walk or function your good keep in tune with your body it will tell u if something's not rite congrats and good luck

I'm a ftm & I had the same questions. During the first couple of weeks, you will experience cramping like a period as long as you don't experience bleeding it's quite normal. Between six-nine weeks you will feel your uterus stretching. Hopefully you have a smooth pregnancy, I didn't have much symptoms besides fatigue & sore boobies.

Thank you both. Feel a bit more relieved. Am a ftm at 34 years old so panicking a bit

Hi! Congrats! My pregnancy test said the same and I did it about two weeks ago. I had my first docs appointment and have my first ultra sound booked for July 16. ( to determine the due date) I had cramping also and thought it was my period. Once I found out I was pregnant so freaked and thought maybe I was miscarrying. Doctor told me cramps are normal just call if I start bleeding.  I wouldn't worry too much. I have only had cramping, fatigue and mild sore breasts. According to my doctor since my last period I am 5 weeks 4 days.
