Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Pain and cramps are common in early pregnancy are due to the enlargement of the uterus and is normal.
However, if you are having increased pain, it can be because of urinary tract infection also.
I will suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist to get properly examined, investigated including ultrasound and urine examination, and get treated accordingly.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
