    hello
    Im 7 weeks pregnant and Ive been experiencing some period like pains all the way through which arent strong and only last a few minutes, ive heard this is normal and usually nothing to worry about.

    However tonight I was walking home from my friends house and we'd been sat down for a good 2 hours, and when I left I got bad period pains that were more painful than they've ever been, my lower back also felt like it was cramping :wacko:
    The pain was quite bad and I was starting to get really worried that something was really wrong, the pain in my back went after about 5 minutes but the tummy pain lasted about 10 - 15 minutes which is about the time it took me to get home, when I got home I lied down on my bed and the pain eased off after a few minutes.

    Does this sound normal? I think Im going to go to the doctors tommorow to just make sure but I really need some advice tonight just to put my mind at rest untill tommorow! The pains have gone but Im still quite worried cause they havent been that bad before.

    :cry:

    If the pain has subsided its probably nothing to worry about, but if it continues you need to check it out especially where you have bleeding or a temperature. I also experienced pains in the lower abdomen in the early weeks along with feeling uncomfortable which ever way I slept at night and still do now but not as much. Your expanding uterus is probably causing the pain and that is normal in early pregnancy.
