Can you get cramps when your first concieve. I am supposed to get my period next week but I have weird cramps that I never did before. Can this be from getting pregnant? It is too early for a home test.

  • these could be implantation cramps. i had these about a week before my period and i am pregnant. you can take a first response test 4 to 5 days before your missed period and it should tell you. i took one 6 days before and i got a faint bfp and then waited 2 more days and took another and got a strong bfp. good luck!!

  • I had cramps before I knew I was pregnant. I thought they were period cramps.

  • Probably just ovulation cramps you are feeling.

  • It wouldn' be ovulation cramps a week before your period. You ovulate the week AFTER your period, which means 3 weeks before the next one. If you are cramping up a week before the period is due, it could very well be PMS or implantation??? The symptoms are so close to PMS symptoms its hard to say. I am in the same exact boat. The two weeks of waiting tries our patience but like you, I am just hanging in there. I might take an early detection test next Tuesday, because I'd be due for AF next Sat. Baby dust to you !!! ~*~*~*~*~

  • It still could be ovulation cramps. Not everyone ovulates the same. I for one ovulate during my period. But gl to you and lots of baby dust your way.
