early pregnancy question
hope you can help. I'm 29 and miscarried last june. Have been trying ever since to conceive and been feeling really periody last week when I would have been due. However, done a preg test this morning - POSITIVE!!! Does the fact I have mild period pains mean I could miscarry again? I know it is inevitable but I'm just resting as much as possible to be on the safe side. Why would I have period pains if no period??

Thanks again

Light cramps are quite common in early pregnancy and are not a sign of miscarriage.
