Are pains in lower stomach normal during early stages of pregnancy?

Yes. Your uterus is growing and stretching rapidly to accomodate the new life growing inside you. These first pains you feel in early pregnancy feel much like regular period cramps, and are often mistaken for such. However, you need to call your doctor immediately if you have cramping with dizziness, light-headedness, fainting or shortness of breath, as these could be signs of ectopic pregnancy.

Are side pains a symptom of pregnancy?

i would think not. If you want to be sure, take a test. Yes. Some women may experience cramping and light spotting during implantation. If this is the case, it would seem like your period was about to start 4-7 days early. If your period starts as usual, then your side pains are probably menstrual, which can also start as much as a week before your period. If you think you might be pregnant, take a home pregnancy test on the first day of your missed period (this is when HCG levels are likely to be detected).

Do you still have stomach cramps as if you were on your period if you are pregnant?

I had pains and cramps for weeks after my period was due, and the pains felt very much like the mild cramping I get just before my period starts. I was actually pregnant - although I was half expecting my period to arrive any day! Apparently it is not unusual at all. Take a home pregnancy test, and if it is positive go and see a doctor. If the pains are quite strong and concentrated on one side it can sometimes be related to ectopic pregnancy, so check it out with the doctor.
