Cramps during pregnancy
I've just found out that I'm 4 weeks pregnant and this is my 1st baby. I've been experiencing very mild cramps (like period pain) for the past 3 days, should I be worried or is this normal?

Mild cramps are common in early pregnancy, usually due to stretching of the ligaments of the uterus. Anything more severe should be assessed by a doctor.
