I am nearly 6 wks pg, but have had period-like cramps on and off for the last week and a half. No bleeding though, except for a tiny bit a week ago, and was told this could be an implantation bleed anyway. Has anyone else experienced this? I had a misc. recently at 7 weeks, so am understandably wary...

Blackie Take a friend/partner with you and book the Early Pregnancy Unit.It is better to check it out I feel or at least go to the doc. Thinking of you & hope all is fine

Hi Blackie, I cant say for sure that there isn't anything wrong so I would advise you to see your doctor or go to the above mentioned. However on a personal note, I too lost a baby at 12 weeks before getting pregnant with our youngest. I was devastated so when I got pregnant again 3 months later I was very anxious. I had cramps for the pregnancy that I miscarried but I also had cramps for the whole first 3 months of the other pregnancy and there was nothing wrong. The doc explained it as my womb expanding which was causing bloatetness so just to let you know that its not neccessarily anything to worry about. HTH, take care.

Hi Blackie, I too am just 6 weeks gone and have had really bad cramps, I woke up on Friday night and Saturday night with them. I was very worried but have been told by other mothers thats it is fairly normal. Have you been to see your Doc yet ?

Thanks, girlies, for the advice Mrs San - I went to the doc this morning and she booked me a scan for this afternoon. But, she did say a lot of people do get these cramps, so please don't worry too much.
