Does this cramping mean I will miscarry or is it a normal pain?

Hi Alex
I have had 2 previous what they call "missed abortions" generally aroudn the 4 - 6 week period, i am not nearing 5 weeks and have cramping in the lower part of the stomach that feels like period pain, i had this previously with the first 2 and am scared that i may miscarry again? Does this cramping mean i will miscarry or is it a normal pain?
Thanks

Sarah...
Answer: Hi, Cramping is very common in early pregnancy. It is to be expected but strong cramping and bleeding is not normal and needs to be checked. Best wishes, Alex
