I'm around 6 weeks pregnant and i'm experiencing cramps that are slightly heavier than menstrual cramps and can sometimes be slightly painful but they only happen every now and then especially when I'm moving around alot.

I experienced the same sort of cramps when i was pregnant last year and ended up having a miscarriage within 8 weeks of my pregnany

It's perfectly normal to have cramps during the first weeks of pregnancy. Mine carried on until at least week 10 (am now 19 weeks). They were worse than my usual period cramps. Try not to worry darling.

Pineapple sorry to hear you are going through this - I know there's no way you can stop worrying, but things won't necessarily turn out the same this time.

I had a miscarriage picked up at dating scan last year, and so when I was 12 weeks pregnant this time and started to bleed I assumed the same thing would happen - but it didn't and am now 31 weeks pg.

There's lots of congestion in your pelvis early in pregnancy and some cramping is often normal. Hopefully it will pass and just be one of those things.

Thank you i needed abit of reassurance. I can't stop worrying, it's all i think about sometimes.

I'd been smoking within the first 4 weeks of my pregnancy because i didn't realise that i was pregnant but as soon as i found out i stopped. Is it a higher chance that i could have a miscarriage due to this.

Well done for giving up the fags, Pineapple. I have never heard of a link between smoking and miscarriage.
