A 24-year-old female asked:

Why do I have cramps when I stand too long during early pregnancy is this a sign of miscarriage?

Unlikely: This is extremely common and is unlikely a threat of miscarriage. Spend more time off your feet and drink lots of water. If you have cramping with bleeding call your doctor.
A 34-year-old member asked:

Are cramps in early pregnancy a sign of miscarriage or anything bad?

Not necessarily.: Cramping in early pregnancy can be normal as the uterus begins to grow and expand. Cramping with bleeding can be a cause for concern. I'd recommend a exam and possible ultrasound if the cramping increases. Hydration is also a good idea.
