Cramping is very normal. I've had intermittent cramping since a week and a half BEFORE I found out I was pregnant. Some of the cramps I've rated at 1/10 and others have easily been a 10/10 in pain. Increase in discharge is also normal in pregnancy. I am now 7w5d and the cramping has finally started to subside to only once a day and very mild (about 2/10 in intensity). Congrats to you!!
