I have been through 6 pregnancies(three miscarriages, one healthy baby girl,one tubal pg. that ruptured and I am now 9wks2days pregnant I was also diagnosed with antiphospholipid syndrom and taking two heparin injections daily to thin my blood.HCGlevels at 6wks were 20,000 and progestrone was 20.2 doctor said was very good levels I have also had two ultrasounds baby looks good and heartrate is good but I fear everyday with cramping that I may face another miscarriage is there anyone out there that has went through something similiar to this I could sure use some reassuring? I also have crohn's disease along with all the other problems I am facing.Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

Very much so.
It's not all the time...but I do get mild cramping. And as for backaches.......I have one PERMANANT ONE!

The cramps are very very common, but if they are accompanied by bleeding, and your doctor right away.

Other than are not alone in that department. Just know that it's very normal.

Re: cramping & back pain in first trimester


I forgot to add, I have Lupus and have that antiphospholipid antigen. I am currently on baby asprin to make my sticky blood thinner.

This is my first pregnancy and am considered high risk....I'm so sorry to hear of your past miscarrages, and I can imagine all your worry.......but the cramps are very normal. Just remember if anything else accompanies the cramps......CALL YOUR DOCTOR.

Since we both are pretty much in the same boat......we need to get a lot more rest than the average person, and most importantly.......we have to realize that its in God's hands......God bless you for a healthy pregnancy.

Re: cramping & back pain in first trimester

I had abdominal cramping the first two months, and began having back aches last week; sounds like it's pretty common.

Bless your heart! I pray that you have a healthy pregnancy!

Re: cramping & back pain in first trimester

Well I am glad to hear that it is normal because my back is killing me. I have a lot of pressure in my lower stomach and in the ovary area. I don't go for my first visit until Monday and I am very excited. The pressure and the back ache is really bothering me, the tops of my legs even feel sore. I feel like I have just done about 500 sit ups. But, no spotting so I guess I don't need to worry right?
