I am six weeks pregnant and having a lot of uterus spasms. This is my second pregnancy and I did not have this with my first. Just not sure if that is normal. I also have a lot of back cramping but no bleeding. Just worried if everthing is okay.
Robert O Atlas, MD responded:
Cramping is a very common symptom during early pregnancy. It is a normal process to have this in pregnancy. If you are concerned, contact your physician and be seen to determine that the pregnancy is in the uterus.

Congratulations on your pregnancy.
