Hello. smile
I am in exactly the same position, miscarriage at 7 weeks in November and currently 6 weeks pregnant. It's such an anxious time.
I am also having period type cramps but I had these with ds so I'm taking it as positive. Nausea is a good sign too or so I'm told. I've been sick a couple of times and the 3 people who know I'm pregnant (DH and managers at work) keep telling me it's a good thing!
I know it's easy to say but I'm trying to stay positive and just take 1 day at a time.
Good luck and fingers crossed for us both! flowers

I had a MC in feb 2012 at 6 weeks. I got pregnant again at the end of March 2012, and have just dropped that baby - now a boisterous 2 year old - off at nursery.

I have heard it's quite coming to get pregnant again quite quickly after a MC. Congratulations.

I am currently 16 weeks pregnant with DC2. Have had period style cramps all the way through so far, from finding out at 4 week. They've started to go off a bit in the last week or two.

Cramps can be a good sign - everything stretching and moving down there.

Hang in there and try not to worry yourself too much - essentially: what will be, will be.

If you can afford it, you could book yourself in for a private early scan somewhere at around 8 weeks so you don't have to wait until the 12 week NHS one?

I did this this time. It was reassuring. It cost £80 but for me was worth it.

Good luck xx
