Sorry, this might sound like a silly question but this is a first time experience for me!

I've missed my period by 3days and taken a test and it says positive, but I am still having period pain cramps, have I taken the test to early and it's a false positive? I keep expecting my period to come because of this feeling but then the test says Positive.

Have a doctor appt tomorrow but am feeling very anxious about everything, some help would be good smile.gif

Hi,

That's really common. I've had it with all of my pregnancies. :) I think it's from hormones and the uterus beginning to enlarge.

Hope this helps ease your anxiety.

Yes it's normal in fact I felt that mildly crampy "about to get a period" feeling for the entire first trimester. It was annoying but i just got used to it.
