Late period?: If the period is late, run a home urine pregnancy test. If it's negative, run a second one in 7 days. If both are negative, you're not pregnant. It's common to have a few days variation in when the period comes. So it might still come in the next few days. ...Read more

Probably normal!: Cramping can occur with ovulation and menses, a few days before or after is probably normal. You don't mention your contraceptive method. If none, or not consistently used, could be preganant, but if no other symptoms of pregnancy--still probably normal. Variation of menstrual period may occur with stresses, etc. ...Read more
