They can be. Cramping can sometimes be felt during implantation, and spotting(light bleeding) is also fairly common around this time. These two things together can sometimes lead women to believe they are not pregnant when they in fact are. If you've been having unprotected sex and have a lighter period than normal, it's worth doing a test. If you know you are pregnant and you experience cramping & bleeding, seek medical help.
