Yes you do get pains in the first month of pregnancy, however it doesn't end there. I was terrified as I had suffered a misscarriage in June of this year. I was convinced I was getting my periods as I was cramping a lot. When I didnt get them after a week I did a test and it was positive. Five days later I started bleeding and the cramping got unbearable. After a scan I realised I had miscarried. In August of this year the same thing happened; I was cramping a lot and I was pregnant. I associated this cramping with miscarriage and the fact that I had gotten pregnant so soon after terrified me. But I am now 12 weeks and nearly out of the danger zone. I still get cramps on and off so I take great comfort in knowing that it is normal. I havent had any bleeding or fever, just all the ailments of pregnancy (tiredness, nausea etc) which I try my best to enjoy because I know I'm so lucky.

Yes some girls have period pains in the first month but it doesn't always mean a miscarriage is on its way; sometimes you can get period pains and the baby is fine. You get period pains because your belly is stretching so there is enough room for the baby. It doesn't mean that there is going to be a miscarriage.

No. This is normal and you may feel little pains or cramps every month around the time of ovulation. The main sign of pregnancy is a lack of a period.

Most women on their first trimester tend to have pains that resemble period pains that is bound to be normal but it needs to be monitored by your gynaecologists. If it goes beyond 6-7weeks though, the doctor should be looking out for you often to make sure the pregnancy is healthy.

During your first trimester of pregnancy you tend to have just about the same pains as those on your menstruation. So no need to panic not unless you feel the same pain for over 7 weeks on your pregnancy.

If you know you are pregnant, then "period pains" and "a period" are actually pregnancy related pains and spotting/bleeding that needs to be evaluated by a doctor asap! If you just suspect you are pregnant then, yes, those symptoms can be experienced in early pregnancy and everything could be just fine. You need to take a pregnancy test as soon as you calculate that is has been long enough for accurate results. Good Luck!!!
