GERD tends to worsen in pregnancy, your pain may be related to the same problem you had , watch your diet and avoid foods that trigger your symptoms

Dr. Matthew Wilson answered:

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

Nocturnal
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.

What is the accuracy of an abdominal ultrasound at 7 weeks? Is it greater than the standard of +/- a wk for 1st trimester since preformed abdominally?

Probably not.

Crown
First trimester ultrasound is accurate to about a week. This algorithm is based primarily on crown rump length. The date is as accurate as the measurement. That being said, a transvaginal exam is probably a bit more accurate, but it's only as good as the measurement.

Dr. Brian Nguyen answered:

How accurate are first trimester ultrasounds done abdominal?

Diagnostics

Abdomen
This question is hard to answer because it depends upon what you're looking for with your first trimester ultrasound. If you're trying to figure out how far along you are in the pregnancy that is excellent, if you're trying to figure out if your baby has down syndrome it's not perfect and will require further work up with other blood tests and ultrasounds.

What is the accuracy of an abdominal ultrasound in the first trimester? Possible to be off 4 weeks?

Ultrasounds

Sonogram
Nope. It is very unlikely that an early ultrasound is inaccurate by much, especially four weeks. The early ultrasounds are much more accurate in general.

What is the margin of error for an abdominal ultrasound in the first trimester. Around 11 weeks. Would vaginal be more accurate?

Vaginal

Transvaginal ultrasound is more accurate in first trimester, with a margin of 5 to 7 days. Hope this helps.

If first trimester abdominal ultrasound was not accurate why would doctors do them? Does it depend on your body type? Just curious.

Ultrasound dating

Stringio
First trimester ultrasound is accurate within 5-7 days. There is no test that can date conception more accurately than a 1 week window. While ultrasounds can be limited in obese people, as long as they can visualize fetus, measurements will be accurate. Transvaginal ultrasounds can be more accurate but more invasive. Getting a more accurate date is unnecessary; babies rarely respect due date!
