Possible Miscarriage
haray posted:
I am about 8 weeks pregnant and have been experiencing cramping. Like menstrual cramps. It has been going on for a week or so. My husband and I are worried that it might mean a miscarriage. Everything I have read says that in a miscarriage there is bleeding AND cramping. I haven't seen any spotting or bleeding. Could it still be a miscarriage? Please help me know.

Period-like cramping is common in early pregnancy and usually nothing to worry about. I had it with both pregnancies.

It only becomes a problem when it's severe and/or accompanied by bleeding.

no spotting or bleeding not a miscarriage. I've had 3 miscarriages. There was always bleeding. Talk to your doctor.
