Pregnancy pains explained

Hi all

I am now 5 weeks pregnant and I start to feel a bit lost before meeting my midwife in 3 weeks time. I am having period type pains and have had a couple of brownish mucas type discharge. I just spoke to my doctor she told me to relax. Just wondered if anyone else has had this experience? 

Good luck for all of you readers, fingers crossed.

Hi Jaimee,

Sounds pretty normal :) Don't worry.

I've been through two pregnancies already and they can be very different. So you'll run into many questions but in my experience... trust mother nature, complications are the exception nowadays.

What may help you is this information here: http://www.yourpregnancyforum.com/5-weeks-pregnant

It will give you an educated insight in what to expect during the stages of your pregnancy.

All the best!

Hi! I am 7 weeks 4 days today and I had some cramps, mild with some brownish/very light pinkish spotting on and off very little but I'm freaking out!! I too spoke to my doctor and she said its normal unless I am bleeding bright red and through two pads an hour. I had a miscarriage 3 years ago so I'm so afraid!! So yes I feel your pain! What are your exact symptoms?

Most discharges during pregnancy are quite normal. But sometimes it is recommended to visit a doctor. I can't clearly say the reason to worry but I could suggest articles that help you to find answers: http://motherhow.com/39-weeks-pregnant/

Dear, I don't have any knowledge about this. If you do not feel good then please concern your doctor. Please don't take any kind of risk or if it is not possible to go to a doctor right now than I would recommend you to attend a webinar where experts are available to help you. They will assist you via online chat and calls.

Hi everyone. When I was pregnant, at the middle of the pregnancy it was little hard. That’s why the baby is large enough to feel moving, but not yet big enough to put pressure on your organs and joints. I also suffered from pains in the lower back, rapid pulse and increased mucous excreta from the vagina. There was a little swelling and spasms in the legs and varicose veins of shins and anus.So I had a lot of rest, slept on a hard mattress. I didn’t overstrain yourself and raise weights. I avoided staying in the same position. I wore elastic tights.

Hello, Congratulation for pregnancy. When my sister was pregnant, she suffered from some symptoms like you. Pregnancy symptoms are unique and unpredictable. When she was 5 months pregnant, she had bad nausea, morning sickness, vaginal bleeding and abdominal cramps. She asked her doctor. He asked her to have a long rest. Eating several small meals throughout the day. She adds healthy foods to your diet like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, beans, nuts, and dairy. My sister scheduled her visits to the doctor.

Hi dear. I'm just 5 weeks pregnant and have had period-like pains for the past 2 weeks. I've found this page so reassuring - 'seems I'm not the only one after all! Thank you. I'm just very wary as this is my 4th pregnancy in the past year. I miscarried the first two both at 7 weeks and the third one, also 7 weeks, was ectopic. So here I am at 41 years 'old', (very old), firing on just one fallopian tube but this pregnancy feels different to those I miscarried (oh - I miscarried at 7 weeks about 10 years ago too). All the others I've had intermittent bleeding throughout but not this one. So I am hopeful. I 'feel' pregnant too - I didn't for the others. BTW, I did have one successful pregnancy, but I had meningococcal meningitis in the first few weeks of that pregnancy When I came out of the coma, the doctors advised me to abort my baby saying that 'it' would be born 'a vegetable' or have serious learning disabilities. Believing in a divine intervention I chose to reject their advice, ... and, love and behold, the one they said I should abort is my beautiful, kind, loving, 17-year-old daughter who just passed all her 10 GCSEs with As and A*s !!! Now I only consult with doctors of Lotus Clinic in Ukraine in any type of pregnancy-related matter as their tips really help. I am now going to wait (impatiently) to get passed that fateful 7 weeks! And, if this little one's time is still not right, at least my partner and I have had the absolute joy of knowing that we've created a life between us. We love him/her to bits even if our time together is short.

Hello, Congratulations for pregnancy. I’m so happy for you and I wish you be comfortable and safe. When my sister was pregnant, she suffered from some symptoms like you. When she was at the fifth month, she had bad nausea, morning sickness, vaginal bleeding and abdominal cramps. She was worry and confuse. She decided to ask her doctor about all her symptoms. He advised her to have a long rest. Eating several small meals throughout the day. She added healthy foods to her diet like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, beans, nuts, and dairy. My sister scheduled her visits to the doctor. The most suitable thing to you is seeing your doctor regularly. Waiting to hear from you.

Hi, don't you worry. its quite common in 5th week. The same type of pains occurs as periods are coming and the brown discharge is quite common. Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy is any discharge of blood from the vagina. It can happen any time from conception, when the egg is fertilized, to the end of pregnancy. Light bleeding, or spotting , during pregnancy is common, especially during the first trimester. Usually this is no cause for alarm.

Hi dear. I can understand your concern. you must be worried. I must tell you that I also experience the pain of same nature. I used to think that I might get periods soon. It was for a short period of time. Afterwards, these pains vanished. If the secretion of mucus is intensive then you should go to a doctor. Otherwise slight secretions are fine.

Congratulation! I wish you a safe and healthy pregnancy. For some people the symptoms that you mentioned are normal and as advised by your GP taking rest may improve the condition. Periods like the pain is something not that worrying but bleeding is. I would advise you to visit your Gp after one or two days if it’s not improved.

Heyaa, There's one thing you can be sure about here. And that is that all women have some shared fears. The topmost is miscarriage. Of course, we are talking about pregnant women in particular. The colored discharge. And the cramps. The sign of periods. And the minor heart attack that you have miscarried now. Thank you everyone for sharing your stories/advices. Women looking for an answer, please be rest assured. You are still carrying your baby. The pregnancy is with you. Hehe! Wish you all the best.
