I have had horrible "period-like" pains and I`m really worried

hi alex. i have just found out that i am 6 weeks pregnant and am over the moon, however for the last 3 weeks i have had horrible "period-like" pains and im really worried. my doctor said this can be normal but im not sure. she sent me for an ultrasound last week and the lady said it was too early to really tell anything and to go back in ten days time. CAN it be normal for these pains or is it a sign that something bad is happening??? im really worried. im going back to the doctor tomorrow but thought id just get your opinion...
thankyou, emma

Answer: Hi Emma, It is very normal to feel cramping and aches and pains especially in the early few weeks. If you are bleeding this is not normal and you will need to have a check up. Best wishes, Alex
