Hi all
I'm new to this so hope I am doing this right.
I am 8 weeks 6 days pregnant and currently waiting the 12 week scan. I had a scan last week that I paid for as I was so worried. All fine though. Loved seeing baby.
Today I have period pains, they hurt. Is this normal at this stage. I am sure every pain I am so over sensitive but I just want everything to be ok.

V normal to have cramps.

Cramps are a normal part of it unfortunately. It's your uterus stretching rapidly that causes it, and usually nothing to worry about if there's no bleeding etc.

Time does drag in the first trimester, but once you have got past 12 weeks, I feel things tend to speed up a bit.

Congratulations smile
