QUESTION

Dear Ms Ultrasound,
Hi. I found out a few weeks ago that I was pregnant (first pregnancy). The first day of my last menstrual period was June 23 of this year. I was having terrible cramps and was concerned because the nurse at my OB/GYN's office said it could be an ectopic pregnancy. I made an appointment immediately, saw my doctor and was told that the cramps were normal. He did an exam and an ultrasound.
