Yes, cramping CAN be a sign of miscarriage. It could also be a sign of something else. If you experience cramping during pregnancy, you should talk to your doctor about it.

AnswerI have been pregnant 4 times, 2 miscarriages, and 2 healthy babys came from my pregnancies. I had cramping with my two successful ones and no cramping until after heavy bleeding with my miscarriages. Cramping can be a normal sign of pregnancy, if it is accompanied by bleeding you should consult your doctor.
