Brief Answer:
Get a transvaginal ultrasound done.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to Healthcare magic.

I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns.

Occasional mild abdominal discomfort is normal. It should not be recurrent or associated with bleeding. If you are very anxious about it, consult doctor and get a transvaginal ultrasound done. You will see the pregnancy sac in the uterus. This will relax your mind.

Best wishes,
