Stomach pains in first trimester
I am currently 7 weeks pregnant and suffering from stomach pains. I had my first scan last week and everything seemed fine then. I suffered from these pains over the weekend and couldn't sleep at night. Should I be worried or is this common in the first trimester? Also is there anything I can take for constipation?

Any comments and feedback are welcome.

Thanks in advance

Stretching of the ligamenst are quiote common in pregnancy and can cause pain.
Try bran and prunes for constipation. If this fails, you can use Senokot.
