First of all sorry for posting so much,,I panic so easily when pregnant. Well today in the afternoon after eating when I came home and was sitting down doing some college homework I got some stomach aches,,,not sure if they were kinda like braxton hicks which I think its impossible being that I am only 5 weeks 2 days. I am just so scared of something going wrong. I get pains in the sides of my lower ab too like where ovulation pain usually occurs. Is this normal??I haven't had any bleeding though and I took a test today to see if it was still positive and yes it was a dark + sign. Please help me,,and sorry for the nuisance.

Maybe your uterus stretching? I wouldnt be too concerned unless the pain was extreme or accompanied with blood.

Ligament pains I'd say.

I think you are right,,,it is just so hard not to worry especially so early on.

I had some cramping and could be intense at times never really lasted long but it would definitely come and go and it started about week 5-5.5... don't worry baby is still nestling in and getting cozy! I had a MC right before this baby so I know how easy it is to worry but unless you are bleeding breathe momma!!! And that's an order lol! By the way I'm successfully to 30 weeks so cramping and aches are normal that early on.

It sounds completely normal. Probably just ligament pains. I was almost 5 weeks before I found out I was pregnant and I just figured the cramps were me about to start my menstrual cycle. Unless there is bleeding that occurs with this, you should not worry. If you are still concerned you can talk to your health care provider.

Totally normal. I had cramps up until 14 weeks just from my uterus growing. The doctor told me its nothing to be worried about unless there is blood or constant tightening thats in a pattern.
