Cramps like period pain for about 4 or 5 days

Hi Alex, my name`s Michelle & I`m 30 years old. I`ve just found out I`m pregnant with my second baby and I`ve been getting slight cramps like period pain for about 4 or 5 days. I`m almost 5 weeks pregnant and my first child is almost 11 months old. I didnt experience this with my first baby, do you know if this is something to be concerned about? I`m getting a little worried.... :(

Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. Cramping in early pregnancy is very common and does not necessarily indicate that there may be a problem. Try not to worry too much. If you do start to bleed then this is a sign that something may be wrong so you need to see your GP. Best wishes, Alex.
