I'm 5 weeks pregnant and every now and then i get menstrual like cramps. No bleeding or anything. Is this normal during early pregnancy?

In brief: Maybe

Pregnancy slows down the gastrointestinal tract which may increase gas dusts soon.
This may be felt as cramps. However if bleeding occurs with vaginal bleeding, that may be a miscarriage warning sign.
