It is usual to get period type pains esp with your first pg.# ligaments stretching etc i think.
My advice would be to book yourself inwith gp to put your mind at rest

I experienced these pains too with dd, however if your worried it won't do any harm to ask your GP.

You can take paracetomol (sp?) Take care x
