I am wondering if it is normal to be experincing frequent dull cramping in your abdomen during the early stages of pregnancy?
AF is 9 days late and i keep getting BFN's on HPT's. It's not confirmed if i am pregnant or not, but AF is always on time, and it's sp unusual for me to be this late.
I have been experiencing frequent lower stomach cramping and dull pains. I am wondering if this is normal for pregnant women and if so, how long is it expected to last?

With my first pregnancy I cramped severley up to 12 weeks. It was worse than period pain so I was in constant fear of a miscarriage. But my pregnancy continued fine until the healthy birth of my wee girl!
I am now almost 7 weeks pregnant and am experiencing cramping off and on. It's not as bad as my first pregnancy but there are moments it does intensify like bad period pain.
So yes, cramping is normal. Everyone has different experiences.
Good luck :-)

Reading this gives me hope that we have been successful this month! For two days I have had AF style cramps but not due for 7 days, keeping my fingers crossed for us both!

I was 2 days late with cramping and got a bfn, 2 days later it was a bfp. I am only 5 1/2 weeks along, but the cramping can be really intense sometimes. Best wishes!
