Im 5 weeks pregnant and this morning I had a sharp intense cramp that reminded me of my miscarriage 4 months ago. Ive had mild cramps throughout my pregnancy so far and I know they are normal symptoms but this was nothing like it.
No vaginal bleeding but it kept coming and going all morning, that I had a hard time walking so called my OB who told me to go to the ED for an ultrasound. Pelvic exam showed my cervix was closed with no visual blood. My blood hCG level went from 2711 to 10,480 in 3 days. This was reassuring but my ultrasound only showed a very small gestational sac but no signs of baby, meaning no yolk sac or fetal pole :-(.
Maybe its too early to tell on USl. I have a scheduled US at 7 weeks but can the cramps really be this intense and be normal? I was also doing yoga dvd this AM and half an hour later it happened. Should I stop doing yoga? I have been doing almost daily yoga for over a year now. Isn't exercise good for the baby during pregnancy? Im scared to move now :-(
