Can cramping be a symptom of conception

Cramping can be a sign of implantation, not conception.

Conception is when the egg and one sperm join. This generally happens in the fallopian tube and it not felt by the mom.

Implantation is when the fertilized egg implants into the uterus. Some moms can feel cramping when this happens. Some moms will also experience some spotting as well.
