Cramping in the first trimester is to be expected because your uterus is just beginning to expand, particulary toward the end.

Hello there - Cramping without a period doesn't necessarily mean pregnancy sweetheart.

You have 2 weeks til you start your period you are having small crampa in your lower stomach could you be pregnant?

Not likely due to the location of the cramping. If you used the geographical term of stomach loosely, then it might be that you are constipated if this cramping is in the lower abdomen. However, the stomach is not an area that would cramp due to pregnancy so if this is the actual location of the cramping then it would rule out pregnancy. Cramping is not a usual symptom of pregnancy. Do you have any other symptoms of pregnancy? Pregnancy is always a possibility with sexual activity.

Hi, Most women after taking the pill, notice pregnancy like symtpoms for the first 3 months or lighter than usual periods and less cramping.

Should you be worried if you are 7 weeks pegnant and have cramping and the doctor said your tummy was still soft and there is no protein in your urine?

From one MOM to one TO-BE!unless discharge increases or you begin actually spotting, or cramping becomes severe i wouldn't worry too much. If its near your usual monthly time thios could explain it. Some women have actual periods during their first and second trimester. 1-3 months=1 trimester, 4-6=second, 7-9=third. are your breast tender as they normally are during your period? If so don't get too alarmed but don't go horse-motorcycle riding, jogging etc. Hope this helps. from a mother of 3!!
