Is it normal to have very bad period pain like cramping in early pregnancy?

Hello,
Just wondering if its normal to have bad cramping like period pain but worse in early pregnancy. Im 7 weeks and a brownish discharge?
Thankyou

Answer: Hi, Cramping and aches and pains are very common in early pregnancy. However, bleeding is not. It is advisable to visit your GP for a check up just to be sure. Best wishes, Alex
