I would like to know if it is normal to feel pain about where my ovaries are similar to menstrual cramps during my sixth week of pregnancy?

Can be normal: Many women will experience pelvic cramping early in the first trimester. It is important to have an ultrasound confirming the pregnancy is developing in the uterus and not in the fallopian tubes.
