Should I visit the doctor again?

Hello
I'm 9 weeks pregnant and have been suffering with stomach cramps and back pain every day for the past 5-6 weeks. I've been to the doctors a couple of times who have done routine checks such as bloods, urine, blood pressure etc and other than a temp said everything seems ok. Last night I had severe pain in one side of my low abdomen, and could feel the pain right through to my back and down to my bottom. I was in tears over the pain which was the worst it had ever been and lasted around half an hour. Should I be concerned and get it checked out again or wait until I have an appointment with the midwife?
Thanks!

Can you call your local labour ward/local early pregnancy unit for advice?

I'd be concerned about this. The pain you're describing does not sound at all normal.

Have you had any scans yet?

They don't accept self-referrals so they only way I would be able to get an appointment is a GP referral I think

Not had any scans as yet, still waiting for my first appointment from the midwife

I had terrible stretching pains at that point, all was fine. But see someone if you are worried.

I'd go to A+E incase of Ectopic pregnancy. Good luck. Hope your okay?

Maternity Triage in my area won't see you till 18 wks, we are told to go a+e in emergencies.

Has ectopic been ruled out?

Does your local hospital have an Early Pregnancy Unit (EPU)? I had a bleed at 7 weeks and was told to call my local EPU to arrange a scan. I hadn't had a booking in appt or anything at this stage and they happily booked me in for a scan to check everything was OK a few days later.

All was fine and DD is 2.4 now.
