period like pains faint preg test


I had my last period on the 13th October and i have been having what feels like period cramps - all day - with no bleeding, i took a preg test and there was a really faint line - barely visible. If i am pregnant then is it normal to get cramps like period pains? When should i do another home test?

It is normal to have mild vramps in early pregnancy. Either repeat the home test or have a blood test.

Yup, sounds like your' re preggies. My hpt also had faint line due to low hormone levels, which should increase in a couple of days. Do blood test and see your gynae.

Hi there!

I experienced exactly the same - had terrible period pain and even spotted abit. Did the Home Test which was faint - went straight away for the bloods and its was a positive...

usually a line - even a faint one is positive - go do the blood test - then you will know for sure!

Good luck!

Hi there,

if you are on a 28 day cycle your period was due last week... it' s very possible that you could be... :o)
Cramping is very normal in pregnancy as the uterus stretches to accommodate a growing baby...

To be double sure have a blood test done.

Good luck!
