— No difference.

— Thanks girl!

— My cramps when I turned out to be pregnant were very different and mostly just on one side of my stomach.Some women experience light lower back pain as well.The cramps were sharper and more like a pulling/pricking sensation versus period cramps who basically last all day and are in the lower stomach area.Every women is different though:)

— Thanks for your response! Really appreciate it♥️

— I do not remember cramping. One of my first clues were when I was in a store with a friend and I started to feel queazy around the perfume aisle. I had no idea what happened.

— Thank you for your response 🙏🏼
