If you know you are pregnant, then "period pains" and "a period" are actually pregnancy related pains and spotting/bleeding that needs to be evaluated by a doctor asap! If you just suspect you are pregnant then, yes, those symptoms can be experienced in early pregnancy and everything could be just fine. You need to take a pregnancy test as soon as you calculate that is has been long enough for accurate results. Good Luck!!!

If you are in the very early stages of pregnancy and are still getting period pains but no bleeding is this anything to worry about?

Probably not. It is important to keep track of when the pains occur, how long, and are they intense or just uncomfortable? Don't be afraid to talk to your OB, the nurse practitioner or whomever you are seeing for pre-natal care. Even if you feel a little foolish, they can relieve your anxiety. And believe me they want to know. Good Luck! You have nothing to be worried about. Period like pains are normal in the early stages of pregnancy, its the uterus stretching. Try and get as much rest as possible and do not lift anything at ALL!!

Sensitive to smells is a definite sign of pregnancy. Craps and pains could be pregnancy, but could also be your period. Take a test to be sure.

Contractions feel like period pains on a whole new level. Imagine your worst period pain ever times at least 5. That's what labor pains feel like.

Are lower back pains normal in early pregnancy?

Yes, it can be. As the body prepares for the rapid expansion to come, it starts to cramp. Usually it's only around the uterus, but it can spread to other ares including the abdominal, back, and legs. If the pain gets to be unbearable or cannot be relieved by pain medications, showering, or massaging you should see a doctor about it.
