Hi Possum - when you say pelvic pain do you mean like period type cramps? If so, try not too qorry too much as it seems they are quite normal. I am 8 weeks too and have been suffering like this since conception!! I know it can be quite upsetting - I have been taking paracetamol as I find I am tense when I have these pains so I take 2, then it takes the pain away and I am more relaxed. Doctor confirmed it was absolutely fine to take paracetamol as long as you only take up to 8 in 24 hours.Take care, Flossie xx

I am 5 weeks pregnant and for the last week I have experienced period like pain/cramping in my tummy. I was really worried that everytime I went to the toilet I would see blood. From reading other posts in this forum, it sounds as though these cramps are completing normal and are happening to due your uterus stretching and your body getting ready for a growing baby. As long as the pain/cramps are not to unbearable I would try not to worry - if you are still worried then I would insist on seeing a GP or Practice Nurse. All the best ....
