5 Weeks Pregnancy Cramps

Hi Mamas, I can't get into my OB until October. I am just 5 weeks pregnant and am having cramps. Much like period cramps with occassional sharp pain in my upper left torso. I am very concerned and don't remember cramps with my first pregnancy. The cramps have been going on for several days off and on. No blood is present. Has anyone experience this? Thank you.

They mentioned the possibility of being able to do surgery in-utero on the baby if it was caught in time. I don't know if I...
