Hi I'm 5 weeks 5 days pregnant very scared and worried as Iv had mc last feb , is it normal to get back ache and lower abdominal pains they come and go , just new to this so would b a great help no bleeding just some discharge wetness when going to loo

Yes. What you are experiencing is completely normal. Its just everything down below stretching. The discharge is normal too. Im 8+3 and having to wear liners due to the amount. Just take it easy and rest as much as you can.

Yes I had all sorts of twinges. They are very scary if you have a history of MC! I was terrified: but had a scan and all well. It's just the insides flexing and swelling I think.

So long as they're mild and come and go and there's no bleeding, I wouldn't worry. Ring your GP if anything hurts too much- they can refer you to the EPU but at 5 weeks wouldn't see much.

Thanks so much , I heard it was common but just wanted to hear it from someone else on here got early scan at 7 weeks doing everything right with eating stopped smoking no fizzy juice decaf tea etc , another question does anyone experience a good few bowel movements then sometimes hard to have another one at times

Yep! That's very common too. If they are very hard to push out you may see just a drop of blood when you wipe too but that's usually from the poo nothing more (again causes a right panic for us post-MC women).

Prunes or prune juice are natural cures BUT they can make your poo runny and make you VERY farty!

It is very common to get all these aches and pains. I had mc last year and was the same as you very worried. I member gettin mild cramps, and i knew they were nirmal but one day i had one and went toilet and there was orange on the paper sad sadly to say it didnt stop and i passed baby. A year kater at almost the same time i fell preggers with our lil man and i am now 21wks smile my 20week scan was the onky time i havent worried about whats going to be on the scan like something bad. The rest of the scans and time i was absolutley bricking it, my hubby new i was worried even though i pretended i was fine, he was a big support for me smile and always has been <3 i had all the same things this time only ten fold -.- my hormones were very wild this time as i had 24hr sicknes up until 11wks. I had all the mild cramps again like period pains and was worried constantly. Try not to worry chuck it doesnt do your mind any good lol i do knkw its hard though xx

Coleyx we all do that!! Toilet checks I mean. Come and have a look on the posafricketivity thread... you'll find lots of advice and we're all in the same boat.
