Hello everyone

I am 4 weeks prego and i recently started having cramps and back pain. I went to the hospital to make sure everything was ok and the doctor and nurses were completely rude and just not sympathetic at all. The doctor did a vaginal ultrasound and said he could not find my baby but said it could be too early. They did a blood test which confirmed i was pregnant. They are sending me back to do another blood test tomorrow morning to make sure my levels are rising. They suspect an ectopic pregnancy but when i called my obgyn they said nothing really pointed to that but wanted to go ahead and still do a blood test. I have had no bleeding but still pain in my lower abdomen. I'm very nervous/scared. this is my first baby and me and my boyfriend are very excited along with our families. please if anyone has had anything similar please share i need some hope. Thanks for listening.

I have had a few lower back twinges this week, and I don't think it is anything major. Are you in pain-pain or just discomfort? I hear some cramping is normal. Good luck to you; I hope all is well and the doc gives you good news.

I had a tubular pregnancy. My experiance was that while I felt the cramping it wasnt painful just uncomfortable. The main thing you need to look for is if the cramping is mostly on one side and I would describe the cramping as more of a sharp feeling.

Cramping can be very normal. And at 4 weeks its way early to see anything on an u/a too. Try to relax and think positive thoughts. Praying you get great news soon!

Cramping this early is normal. If you're in a LOT of pain or bleeding bright red that can be signal of a problem. I have been cramping as well.

Also, severe cramping after 6 to 8 weeks is a more common symptom of ectopic, as well as bleeding. Your OB is right.

Popping in from the May DDC...I had very similar symptoms weeks 4-6 (period like cramps and lower back pain--sometimes it would take my breath away) and it scared me to death. I had a very helpful lady from another DDC give me some great advise that hopefully I can pass to you

Up your water intake! You should be drinking at least 84 oz of water a day, if not more. Once I upped my water, I felt 100% better. But, if you really feel like there's a problem, that you should always go get it checked out...hopefully it will ease your mind some. Hang in there and congrats!

So good to hear! Glad you are reassured, and I am so sorry they were so insanely rude to you. Huge hugs!

Cautiously expecting a little one sometime in June, and always remembering my 5 little ones that left too soon.

My lower back pain is getting a little worse & I've had left side cramping and aches for two weeks. If the doctors and nurses weren't too caring I would suggest you find someone you feel more comfortable with. Nothing worse than being nervous and afraid and dealing with people that should be there for your health that are not caring.
Good luck to you!
