Customer Question

I am approx 5 weeks pregnant. Since I missed my period I've been having what I would call light cramps, but occasionally they feel pretty sharp. Today I had very light brown discharge. Do I have anything to worry about? I haven't even gone in for my first appointment yet as its still too early.

This is Dr. David

how old are you?

is this your first pregnancy?

occasional light and sharp cramps can occur with pregnancy and hormone changes early in pregnancy.

light brown discharge is ok if it stops.

when is your appointment to see a gyn doctor about your pregnancy?
