It sure can be.: Many women in early pregnancy say they feel like they are about to start their period. They may cramp, and even have some spotting or bleeding - but it usually seems different than a normal period. Cramping and bleeding that are increasing, with bleeding getting heavier than a normal period may be signs of miscarriage. And one-sided pain may signal a tubal pregnancy. Please get checked if unsure.
