This is my 2nd dc but I don't remember this pain last time. I'm 5+1 but the last 24 hrs have had a lot of uncomfortable twinges. Today they're shooting up into my shoulder blade. I've had no blood but I also have no symptoms of pregnancy like I did 1st time around.
What would you do? It seems pointless paying for an early scan as I know it's almost certainly too early for a heartbeat which will make me even more anxious :-(

That is not normal. Please get yourself checked out. Xx

Definitely get checked out, shoulder pain can be a sign of ectopic pregnancy.

It's definitely something to get checked because it could well be something like an ectopic so please please please get checked out BUT when I was about 7-8 weeks, I had really bad period like pains and it felt as if I had carried a really heavy bag around with me all day. I got checked out and everything was fine, he's now a perfect 10 week old. I just wanted to shine some light but please get checked out xx
