Hello,

Welcome and thank you for your question.

Yes, whitish vaginal discharge is also normal in early pregnancy - it occurs due to the influence of hormones on the cervical glands.

Some amount of cramps is also normal - it occurs due to pull on the ligaments by the enlarging uterus.

I hope this helps.

When should I be concerned? I’m at 7 weeks now and is there some kind of pain I need to look out for specifically?

You should be concerned if the color of the discharge changes to a reddish or brownish colour.

Also, if the cramps are frequent and increases gradually in intensity. Mild cramps which are more or less the same each time they occur are normal.

I hope this helps.
