Pregnancy test : Why not take a home pregnancy test nd in minutes you will have your answer? If it is negative then then is just a heavy period.

Cramps: Best way to find out is a pregnancy test (blood better to also check HCG levels) and a pelvic ultrasound. If the HCG is going down or if the uterus does not show a fetus, then a miscarraige is possible. I'd go to your pcp or ob/gyn to have this checked.

Don't worry yet: Miscariage should not occur before your first missed period. Menstral pain does better with motrin/advil and topical application of heat. Try the abdominal thermacare products which you can wear under your clothing.
