Spotting: In the first trimester is really common, and in young women things are fine 90-95% of the time. Intercourse is also famous for stirring up a little cervical bleeding in pregnant women. I'd not be alarm but keep an eye on it, if it continues or worsen call you OB. Good wishes. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

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.

I am 7 weeks pregnant. I am bleeding (brown - red) when I wipe and cramps! I have been hot/cold but no temp, is something wrong?

Possibly: Bleeding in pregnancy is not "normal" but may not always indicate something is wrong. You need to see your doctor. This can be a sign of an abnormal pregnancy with impending miscarriage or an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, which can be very dangerous. 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

I'm 7 weeks pregnant and when I have a bowel moment I bleed sometimes bright red blood, & sometimes just light pink, I have some cramps & sharp pains?

5-7 weeks pregnant. Miscarriaged dec 11th what are the chances of having another miscarriage? Small cramps every once in A While. Sore nipples. Hungry

Depends: In general having one prior miscarriage only slightly increases your risk of a second.

I am 7 weeks pregnant I am feeling pressure in my pelvis and have some cramps on my lower back I've been experiencing this cramp since last period ok?

Sacoiliac joint belt: Pain in the low back and pelvis during pregnancy is considered, by many doctors, to be generated from the pelvic girdle; especially from mechanical torque focused upon the pelvic girdle bony ring and contained joints, the symphysis pubis and two sacroiliac joints. Partial pain relief is sometimes enabled by a sacroiliac belt. Many obstetricians are familiar with and can prescribe. See boa. Com. ...Read more

Cramping is common in the 1st few months of pregnancy but should be tolerable. See your dr if it's becoming unbearable. ...Read more

Are consistent painful cramps and occasional sharp pains in my lower stomach normal signs in the 1st trimester of pregnancy? It keeps me up at night.

Common: Cramping in the 1st trimester without any bleeding or spotting is common, and not typically a sign that anything is wrong. Sharp pains originating from your uterus are not common, but again not necessarily a sign that the pregnancy is abnormal.

However constipation is very common in pregnancy, and can explain both the cramping and sharp pains. ...Read more

If having ONLY cramps seven days after conception, is that an early sign of pregnancy? Nothing else. No spotting, tender breasts, etc.

4/21 I was bleeding at 7 weeks pregnant e.R dr did u/ showed 2 sacs 1 hb 91. Then I went home passed sac and liverish thing then did 2nd u/s showed nothing?

Likely miscarriage: Sadly, from what you describe, you were 7 weeks along from your last period and had an ultrasound in the er that suggested you had two sacs meaning that you possibly had either two gestations at a much earlier time than you thought (more like 5 wks) or you had a single gestation with a round area of bleeding. Regardless, it sounds as if you passed the pregnancy. A followup HCG level will confirm. ...Read more

Would I know if I was 7 weeks pregnant?

Take a test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

At 7 weeks pregnant what causes the heartbeat to be low?

At 7 weeks pregnant what causes the heartbeat to be low?

It may be normal: In very early pregnancy the low heart rate can be normal. Typically it should increase quickly but many times if you're doing an ultrasound very early that can actually be a normal finding. My recommendation would be to repeat the sonogram later to find out that the heart rate has increased. ...Read more
