I am currently 5weeks+6days - Is it normal to have period like cramps?

Yes, i had these and went to the hospital as i was worried, they told me its my uterus stretching to make room for the baby. But if youre not sure and worried, go to the hospital, when i did they were great they booked me in to the early pregnancy unit for a scan just to check that everything was ok.

I had period type cramps at 4 weeks and it turned out I had a uti.... are you under mw yet? if yes then phone to see her if not try and get in to see a dr and take a sample with you...
on the otherhand some ladies experiance this and there is nothing wrong, just their bodies adjusting to their new role

I have had period pain cramps from the week before i found out i was pregnant (so i assumed i was gettng my period) and have had them almost consistently throughout then they eased off and came on and off up until about 15 - 16 wks i think. I still get the odd day now when i have slight tummy cramps.

Hi i dont think theres anything for you to worry about as its very common to experience cramps and aches when pg, its just stretching to make room for the baby. But like the others say if your worried go to hosp or doctors, at least you can put ur mind at rest x

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
