8 weeks pregnant and in pain

posted 8 years 7 months ago
I am 8 wks pregnant and have had period cramping since I found out 2 weeks ago. It comes on and off and lasts for a few hours then disapears. It is quite painful sometimes and Paracetamol doesnt seem to work. I have got my first appointment with the midwife on Tuesday so I was going to talk to her then about the pain but Im not sure if I should go to the doctor beforehand.can anyone help with this?

I would go the doctors before you see the midwife just to get things checked over. they might send you to the hospital for an early scan to check the positioning of baby to make sure baby is in the womb. Good luck and I hope the pain is nothing to bad

Could this not be Braxton Hicks? If so it's quite normal Smile

Strawberry how are things going? I never thought about braxton hickes in rare cases it is possibel to get braxton hickes this early on but is more common in multiply pregnancies or if the pregnancy is you 4ht or more pregnancy as your womb has already been strentched by other preancies sand your muscles aren't as strong as they were were with the previous pregnancies
