Is it normal to feel cramps (like menstrual cramps) in early pregnancy stage)? I've been having some cramps but no period. Last menses nov 5 2013.

Can be normal: It can be very normal to have some fairly strong cramps during early pregnancy, it is extremely common. There is the very small chance that it could indicate a problem with the pregnancy, and so you should see your ob/gyn for an exam and sonogram to ensure nothing is wrong and the baby is developing appropriately. If you have spotting, or heavier bleeding, call you doctor right away.

Good luck: The chance of pregnancy per month is only around 20%. You very well could be in that first 20%. UPT next week should give you your answer.

Light period: If unsure a pregnancy test could help reassure you. Symptoms could be pregnancy, or ovarian cyst, or just cycle variation.
