Is it normal to have daily pain and discomfort during early pregnancy?

Is it normal to have daily pain and discomfort (similar to period pain) at an early stage in pregnancy (7-8 weeks)?

Answer: Hi, Lower abdominal cramping and bloating is very common in early pregnancy. If it is not severe and there is no associated bleeding then it is fine. Best wishes, Alex
