Is mild cramps and leg pains any sign of ovulation or pregnancy ?

That means women can get these symptoms whether or not they are ovulating, and whether or not they are newly pregnant.

All test are negative why am I still having pregnancy symptoms all except morning sickness and leg cramps, its been 2 1/2 weeks took test 24 and neg.

Health Class: Your symptoms do not in any way represent pregnancy. You have tested 24 times? Perhaps you should take a few minutes to learn that true early pregnancy is ASYMPTOMATIC until the fetus is big enough to make HCG and have a placenta. That means 'early' signs are not pregnancy but something else, usually. Leg cramping, a sign of the last weeks of pregnancy is not early pregnancy. Ever. ...Read more

Not necessarily: I don't know what you mean by "tiny yellow cm" but leg cramps are not a sign of pregnancy. Lower abdominal cramps are premenstrual signs or possibly very early miscarriage. Sore breasts can be either premenstrual hormone changes or pregnancy hormone changes. If you are pregnant, a pregnancy test might be positive by now. ...Read more
