If you are experiencing cramps without a period and preparing to be pregnant, there is a high probability that you may have conceived. Cramping during early pregnancy is actually a fairly common symptom and is normally accompanied by slight spotting. This cramping and spotting is implantation bleeding. This normally occurs 6-12 days after fertilization. Pregnancy cramping is milder than menstrual cramping and the spotting is very light compared to a 'traditional period.' Cramping does not only occur during early pregnancy but also can afflict a woman during most of her pregnancy. This is called round ligament pain and is caused by the uterus expanding to accommodate your growing baby. These cramps are normally described as a dull ache, which can also be a sharp pain when you moving. These cramps will coincide with other symptoms of early pregnancy. These include tender breasts, frequent urination, fatigue, mood swings, and an increased appetite. http://aboutgettingpregnant.com/getpregn...

It can mean that your uterus is growing, that's the most common reason in pregnancy.
