I am 5 weeks pregnant and am having a terrible time with cramps

Hi Alex,
I am 5 weeks pregnant at the moment and am having a terrible time with cramps. Usually come at night time, or really early morning, and up until this morning they have just been like a nagging feeling in my stomach muscles or like period cramps. But this morning the cramping was quite severe, mostly in the center of my lower abdomen right down low, but spread a little out towards my hips.

It went away after about 10 minutes. Is this normal?? I haven`t had any bleeding or anything else.
Thanks, Hayley

Answer: Hi Hayley,
Cramps are very common in early pregnancy. If they are not associated with bleeding and are not severe and continual then everything should be fine.
Best wishes,
