Sure: A woman's body goes through all sort of changes during pregnancy. Try laying down flat on your back and relaxing for a while. It is important to get lots of rest during early pregnancy.

Possibly: Bleeding in pregnancy is not "normal" but may not always indicate something is wrong. You need to see your doctor.

If you are experiencing significant pain you need to go in immediately though mild cramping can be normal. Hot/cold with out fever can be normal. Read more

Why every time I go to the OBGYN for a checkup, I cramp really bad afterwards. I am currently 7 weeks pregnant.
Check up cramping: The uterus is made up of smooth muscle that when manipulated during a pelvic exam may produce cramping. However, this presupposes that the examiner is being very gentle. Rough pelvic exams can sometimes induce the same cramping especially since you are pregnant and the uterus is distended. Read more
