Pregnant but have stomach pain
I have just fond out im pregnant after trying for 6 months. I about 3 weeks and have
pains on my lower stomach. The doctor said its nothing to worry about its just everything
moving. I would really like to get excited about this happy time but Im worried there is
somthing more. She said there is no infection and seems all normal.
Should I just hold thumbs and wait for the 3months to be up?
Any answers and help would be appreciated

You are probably having pain from stretching of the ligaments as the uterus grows. This is quite common. If you have had a scan and the pregnancy is okay, there is nothing to worry about.
