i have just found out on tuesday that i am 6 weeks pregnant but have had occasional cramp in my stomach a bit like period pains. A girl from work has told me she experienced the same thing but i'm starting to worry when i feel anything in my stomach.
Has anyone else had this????

I got it pretty much all the way through
Isn't it something to do with the muscles relaxing? Check with your midwife if you are worried

You can get pain during implantation IIRC, t4b. (ie when the placenta joins to the wall of the uterus). Also as tillykins says, as your ligaments relax to allow your uterus to swell, you can get pains in that area. I remember feeling the same when I went through my first pregnancy.

However if you are unsure it may be worth checking with midwife (or gp if you haven't been allocated one as yet).
