    Hi ladies,

    This is my second pregnancy (my first ended in a miscarrage). We are extremely excited to be expecting our first child (I am 5 weeks pregnant). My only concern is, I'm having some cramping, much like I'm expecting my period. My fear is, my last pregnancy felt the same way, resulting soon after in the miscarriage. My OB tells me these cramps are normal...this experience is extremely emotional for both of us... am I fretting over nothing?

    I am also 5 weeks and have been cramping ever since I found out a week ago that I was pregnant. It's normal. As long as there's no bright red blood or heavy bleeding you'll be fine. It's normal to worry. Just try to relax and keep calm so you don't stress. Good luck

    I am also 5 weeks (today) and the past few days I've also experienced some mild cramping. I know it's easy to worry--I had two miscarriages and I have to fight off anxiety and angst on a daily basis. Just try to think positive thoughts!!
