Cramping can go either way.  During my 18 months of TTC, I had cramping in every one, including when I got my BFP.  Good luck!!

There are early response tests that can predict pregnancy up to 5 days before your missed period, so if you want to test a little eariler, you can.

I had cramping all the way up to my missed period so that could go either way.  I was for sure I was going to get my period because of it and it never came.  Try to wait it out and relax. Good luck.

Try to relax. For most people the symptoms of being pregnant are the same as PMS. I got very disappointed when I started getting cramps because I knew I ovulated and I went on a little shopping spree for myself only to find out I was pregnant. I had cramps from before my missed period until about 6 weeks pregnant.

Cramping was one of my only symptoms for this BFP- it started right around 10DPO and still hasn’t stopped! It doens’t necessarily mean that you’re not pregnant.

Cramping is actually one of the most common pregnancy symptoms….

@Ugoob:  When I got my last BFP, cramping was my biggest symptom.  It ended in miscarriage though =(

I totally had a TON of cramping! It could be that uterus growing!

I had cramping before my BFP, but it felt different than pre-AF cramping. I don’t know how to describe it except pre-AF cramps were generally worse and (TMI) usually diarrhea went along with it, but for the pre-BFP cramps, they were more mild and I had pretty much 3-day constipation. Thought I’d throw that out there as a reference point, but everyone is different.

I felt like any other time AF was supposed to come – had cramping for about 4 days intermittently but AF never showed. I had no other symptoms actually other than sore breasts.  I took one of those early digital tests 2 days before expected AF, but it was negative. I was so sure I was not pg at that point. But AF never showed, and I kept waiting for something to happen down there… anyways, I tested 5 days later, which was 3 days after expected AF and got a BFP. So these early tests are still not that accurate and I would wait at least a day after expected AF to test, its still possible u r pg!!
