Some cramps are normal and are due to stretching of the ligaments aas the uterus grows. However, if the pain is excessive you should see your gynaecologist. An ectopic pregnancy is possible, or sometimes a bladder infection.

You can only take Panado for pain. There is a tummy bug going around, I have had it for 5 days now and the doctor prescribed Pectrolyte, interflora and lots of water.

The period-like pains are normal in early pregnancy. If you don't have any bleeding you are probably okay. Your baby too! It doesn't sound like an ectopic pregnancy to me but like you have normal early pregnancy cramps and the tummy bug.

Take it easy. Pectrolyte has helped me. I am currently 31 weeks preggy.

Best of luck!
