Cramping during early pregnancy?!?

A little backstory - I don't have regular periods. In the last calendar year I've had 5 periods with no specific pattern. When I do have a period, my PMS starts weeks ahead of time starting with the sore boobs, then cramping a day or so before I start bleeding....

So the end of last month, the fiancé and I went on vacation... since then he's gone back to California where he lives (I live in Arizona right now) and it's been close to three weeks since I've seen him or had "fun."

Well while he was here, my boobs started hurting. Signs of my period coming! Didn't bother me at all. The last four days I've cramping slightly on and off but no period. On top of all this, I've been SUPER emotional and craving chocolate like it's a life necessity; both of which is not normal PMS for me.

That brings me to today, I took a pregnancy test just to "rule it out." Welp, BFP. My heart is still racing thinking about it.

I just want to know if cramping like this is normal? I plan on taking another test soon and go to the doctor ASAP, but in the mean time I'm a complete basket case. This would be a complete 100% miracle but I'm terrified I'm having a miscarriage.

Sorry if this is too long. I can't stop rambling.

Thanks for any advice!

Re: Cramping during early pregnancy?!?

It depends on the type of cramping. Is there any blood? You will probably be fine, some cramping in early pregnancy is normal. Most women experience this because the body is getting ready for a baby. I would wait a little longer and then go see a doctor. You could go have blood work done just to know your HCG levels but it is far too early for an ultrasound. Keep us updated!!! Good luck! And congrats!!!

Re: Cramping during early pregnancy?!?

you can see a tiny dot in your uterus (which will become your baby) only after 4 days that your period is late

With my first pregnancy I cramped on and off like I was getting my period but never did. The doctor said it was the uterus stretching.
