slight cramping and gas pains are quite normal at this stage...dehydration is not good and can cause cramps so drink plenty of fluid. If you start to bleed...especially heavy and/or clots most likely a miscarriage...go to ER
just rest, drink fluid and wait to see what happens. you cant stop it if it is a miscarriage so just make yourself as comfortable as possible. good luck.

    Well you might be okay for now, as it could be anything from gas to miscarrying. If you see one spot of blood though you should go to the ER. I'd go to the ER now if I were you, but I do understand that this isn't always an option for some women. I went to the ER for cramps early in my pregnancy and it turned out to be a really bad UTI. It really wasn't what you'd consider a normal emergency but I still had 2 weeks before my first prenatal visit. Honestly when pregnant nothing should be considered a waste of anyone's time.

    Good luck and congrats!

    I would call... it could be normal... but its better to be safe than sorry... you arent wasting their time... they are paid to help! They would rather you call than something to be wrong and you ignore it! I wouldnt stress just call them :) Congrats on the baby and good luck!!

    If you are pregnant and have pain- don't ever think that the ER would be annoyed with you and think you are wasting your time. You are not.
    Pain like that during pregnancy, at anytime is not something to guess at.
    Pregnancy should not be this painful, as you described.
    Now- are you bleeding at all? Do you feel nauseous, generally tired? If not, then perhaps it is nothing- but a call to your doctor might not be a bad thing.
