Question: Cramps?!

 jterry - Mon Feb 21, 2005 2:03 pm

SO, I was supposed to get my period the week of Jan. 27th. I did not get it , so when 2 weeks later, that Monday, I noticed little cramps. I just assumed my period was about to start, well 2 weeks later no period. Is it normal to not get your period and still get cramps? I hace always had my period, never issed a month. Also, if I am pregnant are cramps a bad sign? It was only for one day? But I didn't know if that was a symptom of pregancy?

User avatar Hi jterry,
Some women experience mild cramps when they are pregnant especially around the time of the month when the menstrual cycle would normally be due.
