I'm having period-like cramps, very often during the day. They're not severe, but enough to concern me. I took 4 home pregnancy tests and 1 pregnancy test at the Health Department and they all came back positive, and im already on prenatal vitamins, and i still havent got my period, but I'm having a hard time believing im pregnant. I have the symptoms (mainly nausea and swollen & sore breasts). But the cramps are what are getting to me. Is any of this normal?? Confused

Cramps are normal. A lot of women get them. Your uterus is stretching and something is going on in there - so, yeah, it is normal.

I got a lot of cramps early on in my pregnancy, in fact I didn't even know I was pregnant for a long time because I kept feeling the cramps which made me think my period was coming any second now. But my Dr. told me as well as many books all said cramping is normal for the exact reason Ingi said because your uterus is stretching. So no need to worry.
