Many women get cramps. Some people get them throughout their pregnancy, some don't have them at all. I've heard that they can be more frequent if you are dehydrated, though I don't know if it's true. It can't hurt to drink more water though! Later in pregnancy they are called Braxton Hicks.

Could you be pregnant if your last period was three weeks ago and now you have mild cramping and your cervical mucous is clear and wet but not stretchy and sticky?

Hello, Cervical Mucus (CM) is not a indication of early pregnancy. CM becomes more frequent & increases in quantity if pregnancy occurs but this will not be noticeable until 1-2 months into pregnancy. Mild cramping may be a indication of early pregnancy but it sounds like your period is due soon, so this is most likely why you're cramping. However if your period does not arrive then see your Doctor for a pregnancy blood test.
