    I am a little over 6 weeks pregnant. This is technically my fourth pregnancy, my first and second I miscarried and my third was complicated and unusual but I did make it to almost the end and have a beautiful 2 year old! Because of this history I do not know what a normal pregnancy is like so I need some advice. I have a type of infection that has the same symptoms as the flu and in the past hour every time I have a coughing fit I get a sharp pain in my left side that feels like a contraction. Is this normal at all or should I be worried?
