late but crampy

Hi everyone! I've been reading this board for months even though this is my first post.

I've been TTC for 3 months. I can't belieeeve this process takes so long (I know 3 months is short). Who would have thought it would be so hard? Anyways, AF is now 3 days late (yay?). I still feel slightly crampy though.

Just wondering ... as much as my DH tells me to stop thinking about it ... I have to ask - could I be pregnant even if I am feeling kinda crampy? I just always thought cramps were a sign of AF. Can you be crampy and pregnant?

I could just take the test but I'm trying to wait so that I don't enter a week long depression like I have the last 2 months. And I want to learn about what I'm feeling.

Re: late but crampy

When I was pregnant this summer, I started getting AF type cramps earlier than I normally would for AF. Apparently, it's very common and normal to feel crampy when PG. Mine felt more like a slow, dull pulling sensation. Since you are already late, I would test. GOOD LUCK!
