    its a tricky one, usually wiv mc there is bleeding at some point as the fetus has to come away and come out eventually, but can i just say that the cramping at this stage 6 wks, is normal. Also it is SOOOOOO normal to panic as well. Its a natural thing, i paniced all way throu 1st tri almost up until 10 wks xxxx

    It's normal. . .actually a good sign, to be getting cramps in the first couple of weeks. That is your uterus stretching and getting ready to carry the baby! I had pretty strong cramps off and on in weeks 5 and 6.

    Try not to stress - if your bean is healthy (and he probably is), the stress is not good for him/her.

    GL!

    Hi hun, first of all cramping is very normal and a good sign! I had a mmc last year and did not have a lot of cramping just one big spurt before i found out it was a blighted ovum at around 9/10 weeks. I had extreme tiredness with that pregnancy and slight nausea. I am now pregnant again and have had cramping last week. Its hard not to worry but your symptons sounds good and at least you dont have to wait long for a scan. Try to be positive and not to stress, hope all is well x

    I am sure things are ok like the others have said. Cramps are normal. I am 10-1/2 weeks and still have them due to cysts on ovaries from taking Clomid. They can be caused from many things that aren't any need to worry. I had a loss back in June and with it had bleeding AND cramps.
