Hi, im 6 weeks pregnant and am having cramp / aching like pains, i also have a constant liquid leaking from my vagina. Is this normal or the start of a miscarrage.

Many thanks

I am so sorry that no one was able to get to your question sooner and I hope everything is ok. The symptoms you were describing do need to be checked out by a physician. Rest assured however, that you can have watery discharge in pregnancy that is normal and the cramping may or may not be significant. Please let me know how things turn out ok. Best wishes Charleen
