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.

Totally normal.  It was worst with my first but it still happens now.

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.
