You usually only start showing after 12 weeks. Mild cramps are normal. Unless the pain is severe, you can probably wait for your doctor's appointment.

You will only start showing anywhere from the 4th to 6th months depending as everyone is different. If the pain you are feeling is more than a cramp and is so severe that you can't do anything other than rest then give your doc a call to check what the possible causes might be. It could be your uterus stretching but it's unsual that the pain would be so severe ina first pregnancy:)
