Has anyone else every experienced light period like cramps as an early pregnancy symptom?

Only they are not like my usual pre af cramps. I can't explain it, but they just feel different more like little twinges. I don't know what to think. I am currently a week late for af. I have no other pregnancy symptoms. So i am just thinking that my period is out of whack and i will start anytime, but so far nothing. Anyone who has similar stories?

  • i had them too. I already knew i was pregnant so i thought i was miscarrying, but the OB checked and baby was fine, she said that it was normal.

  • The day my period was supposed to start, I felt all day like it was going to show any minute; the cramping, the bloating, the tiredness, the general icky feeling. It never did, and the next day I got a positive HPT.

  • I think i will wait a couple more days and then do a HPT if nothing happens. Was the crampy/twinges periody feeling your only symptom at first?

  • The PMS-iness was not my only symptom. I was also very tired (pregnant tired, which I only knew because it was my second) and had major insomnia. I'd already been suspecting pregnancy for a week. When I got the period feeling, I thought I was wrong about that, but obviously not.
