My AF is due on Sunday or Monday. Last night I woke up with cramps as if I was going to get my period. I have no blood or discharge. Has anyone had cramps as a early pregnancy symptom?

  • I don't know if mine are an early pg symptom, but I was cramping for a couple of days (Sat through Mon this week), but no bleeding...still no period yet. (Was supposed to start Tuesday.) But I do know that a woman can have cramping when there's implantation.

  • I am just starting my second trimester- I had no idea I was pregnant because I had cramps for the first few weeks! I would not call it a sign of pregnancy - but you can have cramps in the beginning :)

  • I had period-like cramps the day my period was supposed to start. I don't think it's a symptom of pregnancy, but it's not uncommon to have mild cramping during the first trimester. I'd still wait until your period doesn't show up to test. Good luck!

  • I haven't had that but i read that you can cramp during implantation. Hopefully that's what it is! Good luck!

  • This time I had cramps and some spotting a few days before we got a positive test...I swore I was getting AF. I actually took three or four tests that were negative until I finally got a positive a few days after my period was due. I didn't have any cramps with the first two, but each pregnancy can be so different.
