I am currently 6 weeks pregnant. I am now on day 11 of intense abdominal cramping/pain. It usually starts around two hours after eating and the pain will last 40 minutes to an hour. I've talked to my OB's nurse several times last week, and over the weekend went to the ER. I had a pelvic ultrasound and the baby is fine (initially worried that I was potentially ectopic). My urine test came back that I had blood and bacteria in my urine. They did an ultrasound of my kidneys in case of stones and found nothing. I was then given antibiotics for a UTI. Since then, I have also had my gall bladder, liver and pancreas checked. BUT I still have the pains, has anyone else experienced this? Doesn't matter what I eat (healthy, non-healthy, high fiber, low fiber), like clockwork two hours later I hurt. My first OB appointment isn't until Jan. 6th. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated!!!

Miscarriage has definitely been on my mind. I know its a possibility and if that should happen, I know its not something I can prevent. I have definitely been taking it easy though. Since my initial post, my OB had me see a GI doctor (she was pretty convinced that I'm experiencing a GI issue and not a miscarriage) and I've been having some tests done and hopefully they can figure out what is going on.

If you're getting sent to a GI and they are pretty sure you're having a GI issue, I just want to let you know that just plain old gas can be extremely painful and cause a lot of bloating. Heck sometimes it's so strong it actually feels like a baby moving around a bunch or even like you are having contractions. I got gas SUPER bad early in my pregnancies but it usually died down once I got into my second trimester.
