Brief Answer: Cramping pain in lower abdomen is not a good sign Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome back. If she is having cramping pain in lower abdomen, then you should consult your doctor & start taking progesterone medication under her guidance. Get an ultrasound scan done to detect site of pregnancy. If she is having cramps in legs or hands it can be due to calcium deficiency & start taking calcium support. Do not forget to take folic acid for well growth of fetus. Take care
