  • A pain you might get when a fertilized egg implants itself into your uterus. I had extreme pain for days and found out it was Etopic :( (Not to scare you)

  • Cramping is usually the first symptom to occur although don’t be discouraged if you don’t notice this symptom. With a first time pregnancy cramping may be too light to notice. Usually with second time pregnancies or more the cramping is either like cramps you feel before a period or stronger. The more pregnancy’s you’ve had the stronger they can be. The cramping is what is called Implantation Cramps. These occur when the fertilized egg is attaching itself to the uterus causing very small contractions which causes the cramps. Unfortunately one problem with detecting pregnancy early is pregnancy symptoms can also seem like the symptoms you get when you’re period is getting near. Cramping, bloating and breast tenderness can either mean your period may start or you are pregnant. The key way to tell if you are pregnant is to look for symptoms listed here that you normally wouldn’t see before your period was to start
