I'm about 5wks pregnant with a lot of lower back ache, not cramping though and no spotting so I'm taking that as a good sign. My first HCG test levels were around 375 and two days later they went up to 750 so I feel encouraged and the doctor said the numbers coorrespond to an early pregancy. I'm trying to stay postive but it's so hard when my lower back hurts so much. I know our bodies are going through this change and making room for a baby but has anyone experieced lower back aches and gone on to have a beautiful healthy baby? I can't help being a little scared. I go back on Monday for another blood test to see if my levels have raised and on Tueday for an ultrasound. Please pray for me. I already feel attached to this baby.

I am possibly 4 weeks prgnant and have been having these light cramps for two weeks now. I was starting to worry!! I am nauteous everyday in the early afternoon, I have the blue veins showing on my b___sts that have never been there before and I have to urinate every 15 minutes it seems like. I have had a test to make sure it wasn't a bladder infection or UTI. I am also very tired. But my cramping is also around my v____al area. Has anyone else had this?

I ditto the " Thank Goodness for this site" comment. I'm almost 5 weeks and the low, central cramps have been worrying me. I'm so relieved to hear other have experienced this with no problems!

i am 7wks preg to the day. went to my dr b/c of pain in abdominal area and bright spotting that lasted only one day last weekend. my dr did hcg tests, first was 1167 and two days later was only 1418, my levels are too low to do ultrasound. yesterday dr told me this was very low and told me to expect to possibly m/c this weekend and advised me the only hope was if my levels jump to 2800 by monday when hcg is to be retested. now today i am having same symptoms as last weekend. cramping and bright spotting. i am hopeful it will go away and possibly my levels will become normal. but with this pain i am beginning to think m/c is inevitable.

I have to tell you that I am so relieved to have read that the pulling type cramping pain in my lower right abdomen is normal. Although it doesn't feel like PMS cramps. I am 5 weeks pregnant and am over 35 years old. A year and a half ago I had a missed miscarriage. I was starting to really worry before I came upon this website and have to say I am truly grateful that I did!!!

hi all, im now 11 weeks pregnant and the last few days i have been getting occasional pain in my abdomen, sometimes it feels like im getting an upset stomach and other times just like a nerve got pinched. I have been under a considerable amount of stress with upcoming end of semester exams im hoping that its nothing serious...reading all your comments has made me feel a little better knowing that im not the only one getting worried about the aches and pains. does any know when to call your doc about abdominal pain...when the pain is reason to worry, because on most sites i have read they tell you servere pain but when do we consider it servere enough to call a doc and when its just a temporary cramp caused by any one of the mainy ailments that we suffer from during this fantastic experience?

I have had 3 miscarriages before and 2 in the last 4 months. I ovulated on January 31st and for the last 5 days now I have had mild cramping. I am so afraid to go to the bathroom because Im scared every time that my period will come. I am expected to get my period in 2 days however the cramps today are more to one side and im a little scared.

I am about 13 weeks, and just recently noticed a slight cramp that comes and goes on my lower abdomen. I've had a miscarriage a year ago, and that started out with spotting. This pregnancy, however, I have no spotting or bleeding, but just that weird cramp. I'm so worried! :(
