What is a crampy sickness, was curious if that is a symptom? Haven't received my period yet and wondering symptoms?

It wasn't a crampy sickness really, but w/ my second baby whenever I would get even a little hungry I would vomit, and this started a week after conception. A few weeks later I developed severe headaches, which lasted a couple of weeks. Are you hoping to be pregnant?

Yes, my husband and I both started trying in December, it's been 8 weeks and no period, we have our fingers crossed.

Hey there; there is a chance of become pregnant if you had intercourse whilst you had your period.
have you had subsequent menstrations? cramping alone wouldnt indicate a pregnancy, but then again different women experience different things.
If you still unsure as to whether you are pregnant take a pregnany test or visit your doctor.
