Re: menstrual cramps mid cycle??
The cramping is very normal mid-cycle; I usually have that and it's not unusual to have spotting also due to the abrupt rise in estrogen. As far as a sign of pregnancy, bleeding or spotting can take place about a week after ovulation or three weeks into your cycle (that is if you're a regular 28-day woman) and the fertilized egg implants into your uterus; called implantation bleeding. I've been pregnant twice and that's never happened to me, but with my second baby, I had horrible menstrual cramps about the time I was due for my period when in all actuality, I was pregnant but only a few days late. You'll probably just have to take a pregnancy test if your period doesn't come, just to be sure.
