Could be a good sign, or could be just that you're paying more attention than usual and noticing your digestion or some other non-reproductive phenomenon. I've been having the latter problem since I was 10 and hoping I would get my period so I could be "grown up"! :LOL

I had these with both my boys when I was barely pregnant. They started right before my period was due and lasted a few weeks. The started too early for me to get a positive pregnancy test right away, but it didn't take long. I tend to get positive pg tests about the day my period is due, but no earlier. It sounds hopeful. Mine were really low and just a touch on the right side.

I've been getting them too Brooklynn. I've heard a lot of women here have had similar sensations early in preg.!

With my first pg I didn't feel anything until after I tested positive, but I wasn't paying too much attention either as it was a surprise pg. (we weren't ttc)

Hoping it is good news for you!

thanks ladies. I'm still getting them. And now it seems like I have a touch of stomach flu but I'm hoping it's early morning sickness. I was out to eat last night and got sick and haven't been able to shake it yet. I'm hoping its the 9 month bug. thanks everyone
