Somedays I have really bad twitching pains in my ladybits, then back ache and then thy aches. but its not bad bad pain, infact it doesnt really hurt, but i would describe it as pain.

Somedays (everyda at the moment) I feel so sick I can't get out of bed, and others I feel sick at night or first thing in the morning.

Sometimes I'm hot and dizzy and really tired.

I havent been cold for no reason, only because its so bloomin cold weather at the mo lol!!

If your really concerned, you should ask your doc, for reassurance

Good Luck and Take Care

i had period-like cramps around the time i was supposed to start my period but it never came and to my suprise was pregnant :-) i am now 6 weeks and cramping has gone just feel stretching sensations! Cramping is so common in early pregnant as long as its not severe and/or accompanied by bleeding your okay! If u feel worried at all i would ring the NHS line or call/see ur doctor thats what they r there for :-) good luck to all expectant mothers and healthy pregnancys all round x x x

I just found out im pregnant dont see my midwife for another 2 weeks so i dont know how far on i am, im guessing only a few weeks but for last 2 days iv had period like pains in my stomach but only last few mins only prob once or twice a day, im worried is this normal as its my first child.

Yes it is normal! But if you experience bleeding aswell get to your gp as that could mean you are miscarrying. But just cramps are fine its your uterus stretching and the egg implanting, it is common to have some spotting too xx

In had a miscarriage early may this year :( was very worried about carrying another baby. I have been having back pains, stomach cramps, blocked nose & ears, tummys a little bit bigger, I also keep having hot and cold flushes. Could I be pregnant or just coming on my period & being poorly?

I'm just over my first trimester and have experienced mild cramping almost like period cramps, and my lower back is killing me with the pain spreading down my left hip. But I don't care I've got.somethin to look forward to that's worth it :)

Im 5 weeks and i pretty much have all these symtoms. Only found out yesturday.but its all worth it.:)

To help reduce or stop pain in your back during pregnancy, rest whenever you need to...but not too much. One of the common myths about back pain is that you need "bed rest." This is not true. Research studies have demonstrated that too much bed rest is bad for your back. When you are pregnant you should take frequent rests, sitting and taking short naps whenever you need to.MORE AT --

Has anyone else experienced stiffness/aches in back, hips, and thighs in early pregnancy? I'm four weeks pregnant and for two days it's gotten worse. I can't sleep well. When I tilt my head downward I have sought pain down my back and even into my hips. Any experience? Thanks!

I'm nearly 5 weeks pregnant and im suffering with slight period type pains and bottom of my back really hurts at times I've been to the doctors and have been reassured this is nothing to worry about , just egg implanting etc . This is my 4th child and ive noticed as ive had my children this is quiet normal to have a lot of aches and pains early on but if you are worried go see your doc x
