Hi everyone! I'm new here. I'm a healthy 26 year old female. I found out at 3 and half weeks that I'm pregnant with my first child! My boyfriend and I are over the moon about it. I saw my doctor at 4 weeks, where he confirmed pregnancy with a urine test, and when he did the pelvic exam he said "you're very pregnant!" How exciting huh?
For the past couple of days, I've been experiencing mild cramps, completely normal, right? But, what concerns me is that the cramps are primarily focused on the right side, and with my lower back. It feels like ovulation cramps. My other symptoms include fatigue, extreme hunger, and going to wee a lot more. Should I be concerned about these cramps on the right side? Since this is my first time, every little thing worries me!

all the symptoms you've got are quite normal, but cramps only at the right side...personally i haven't experienced that. what i had are cramps in the lower abs. you've got to observe for a few more days then if it really bothers you then better get an OBs advice.

I am four weeks, and I am feeling pretty much the same symptoms. Going to the bathroom a lot, hungry more often, super tired, and cramps all over. I don't have my first dr. apt until Feb. 8. I was hoping to go in right away, but apparently some doctors like to wait until you are farther along. The receptionist said 8-10 weeks (I will close to 8 by then). It's going to be a long 3 weeks!!

I'm 4 weeks and 2 days and have had crampy tight and tingly feeling in lower abd? Is this normal? And TMI I know but have also had some light brown discharge today only when I use the bathroom. I called my doc office and the RN said that it was fine...but I'm worried.

I am 4 weeks today and I am having all of the same symptoms as well. But every single person I've asked (including my OBGYNs nurse and other preggo mommies) say that they are all normal. Unless you begin to feel excruciating cramps, I wouldn't worry. I'm just like you as well, this is my first pregnancy so ever little thing makes me worry. I just have to keep reminding myself to STAY OFF OF GOOGLE, stay positive and stress free.

Best of luck to you! Keep in touch and keep us updated!
