I'm pregnant, what now?
I found out on Friday that i am pregnant and am still in shock! I've had stomach cramps and pains for about 2 wks, is this normal? And is there anything i can take to make it a little bearable?

My husband would also like to know if we can still have sex!

Now that i am pregnant, what steps do i need to follow concerning antenatal treatment? I havent made any arragements as i dont know where to from here and just needed some time to let this sink in. Please advise!

Mild cramping is normal. As long as you have not had any previous pregnancy complications, it is fine to have sex.
You should make an appointment with a gynaecologist in the next few weeks.
