Hi Welcome to healthcare Magic

Do not get the abdominal pain.. As you have previous history of Abrutio placenta.. you needed to be clinically evaluated.. consult your obstetrician... take care..

Hi, I was just in the emergency room last week friday with lower back pain and I found out that I am pregnant. The back pain only comes back occasionally along with really light spotting and occasional abdominal cramps. They did 2 ultrasounds and said everything looks healthy but they couldn t see anything yet because it is too early. I just want to know if I should still be concerned or if what I am experiencing is normal?
