Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

It feels like I have menstrual cramps. Does this mean I didn’t get pregnant?

Re: It feels like I have menstrual cramps. Does this mean I didn’t get pregnant?

The Bump Expert

Nope. A bit of cramping about eight to ten days after ovulation might actually be a sign that you are pregnant. These pains -- known as implantation cramps -- can happen when the newly fertilized egg burrows itself into the wall of your uterus. If implantation is to blame, cramping should be minor and brief (lasting only a day or two), and may be accompanied by light spotting called implantation bleeding. Wait a few days, and if your period doesn’t show up when expected, break out the pregnancy test. (Good luck!)

If at any point in your pregnancy cramping is severe, lasts more than a couple of days or occurs after a positive pregnancy test, head straight to your doctor. It's probably just gas or the feeling of your growing uterus, but it's important to rule out miscarriage, preterm labor, placental abruption, preeclampsia, and urinary tract infections.

re: Q: Implantation Cramps?

I think I may have had these last night. I woke up around 2 with cramping low. Not horrible but bad enough I couldn't sleep. AF is due in 6 days, when should I test?

re: Q: Implantation Cramps?

I am also having this type of "crampy" feeling now, for the past 2 days. It is very minor and only lasts for a max. of a minute or so - there is no sign of AF, or spotting, and its approx. 5 days past my AF due date.To the PP, I wouldn't worry until you are past your due date. I usually get that crampy feeling right before AF is due, and then she shows. Right now I am 5 days late and AF is no where to be found.

re: Q: Implantation cramps?

Hi, I don't know what the cramps I have mean at this point, we have 3 boys though we didn't plan them so I never really paid attention to anything that happened before my AF in the previous 4 times I was pregnant (my last pregnancy ended up in a miscarriage on April 1st this year).This time around we are charting temp and taking OPK's my OPK was positive on the 25th and according to my BBT shift I ovulated that same day, we tried O-1 and the day of O. Right now I'm feeling crampy and a like a pin prick pain on the right side of my uterus off and on (like a blinking light kinda rhythm).. I'm 6DPO today and I dont know what all this means, is this to early to be feeling any symptoms of implantation? I'm still 10 days away from AF.

re: Q: Implantation cramps?

I had these cramps too that lasted for a week or more. I am 4 weeks and 4 days pregnant and the doctors say all of this is normal. I continue to have twinges and that is just the uterus expanding to prepare for the baby.

re: Q: Implantation cramps?

I am post ovulation as well... should end this month's cycle on the 12th. I get lower abdominal twinges, like I am ovulating. I know I am already past that because of the strips. I have no idea what this is? I have no signs of a pregnancy... does this mean I am not pregnant?

re: Q: Implantation cramps?

The past week I've been having cramps in my thighs like I do when PMSing. Its been bad enough that I've been unable to sleep. Finally lay on the icy-hot and able to go to sleep. I had finished my period on the 19th of july and gotten my new set of pills on the 21st, took the one for that day and then kept forgetting them all week. I took one last night and today but have had strange stomach pains the past week. Felt sick to my stomach but no vomiting. Is this a possibility of being pregnant? or just wishful thinking?

re: Q: Implantation cramps?

Last weekend, we took a pregnancy test (gut feeling) and it came out positive. I was supposed to get my period yesterday but it did not come so I am convinced I am pregnant. I have been SO bloated and having minor dulling cramping for about 5 days now... is that normal? I made my dr. appt for my 8 wk but I don't want to be that paranoid person calling them so soon... I am just concerned that something is wrong!

SquirtBlossom76 |

re: Q: Implantation cramps?

I have heard a lot of people do have the cramping. I had cramping and said "oh I have cramps, here comes my period!" 5 days past with me going, "okay, maybe its going to start tomorrow!" Little did I know there was not a period for me. Ta Da, Bun in the oven!

re: Q: Implantation cramps?

I have been having crazy cramping for about 3 weeks now... this was my first clue that I may be pregnant. Sure enough I am- 5 weeks now, but I'm still having this weird cramping. They are just as intense as normal period cramps but don't last as long and they're sporadic throughout all day and night... occasionally I'll get the sharp twinge too. I've been told it's all normal. But it's been constant for about 3 weeks now. I can feel a LOT of stuff going on down there, the only way I can explain it...? So I guess at this point it's not from implantation but maybe other things... not sure. But no worries here, from what I've heard and read it's all totally normal!

re: Q: Implantation cramps?

When I was with my guy earlier today my stomach started hurtin something awful, like menstal cramps but I never get those...lol. I thought it was just cus I hadn't eaten today and figured it would probably be too soon for any sign of pregnancy since I just ovulated a week ago... this post is seriously giving me some hope b/c I had a sneaky suspicion it might be what was going on. I hope I'm preggers!!!

Hopefulveganmommy |

re: Q: Implantation cramps?

About a week ago I had a very minor case of cramps and then a very small amount of bleeding. At first I was concerned but then after reading I think it could have been implantation bleeding. I still get little cramps here and there. AF is due in another day or two but I'm crossing my fingers!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I've been TTC for two years now. i found out i wasn't ovulating (also only have 1 ovary) and so my Dr. started me on clomid last month. i finally had an LH surge on day 16 of my cycle after the clomid. from day 26 up to now (day 28) ive been having minor cramps... it almost feels like cramping from my period, just different...i've also been super emotional, which never happens..could this be that i'm preggers? hope so :)

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My husband and I have been TTC for only a month and today I noticed cramps. They don't really hurt but it feels really tight, and i've never had the "tight" feeling in my lower adoment. Has anyone else experienced that?

JanaBabe09 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I can attest to these cramps. I was having these and was confused because my period was still one week away. I decided to take a pregnancy test and sure enough, I was prego! :) YAY!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

So my husband and I have been TTC since July and no luck yet. I'm really trying to be patient and not stress over the whole thing b/c I know it will happen when it is meant to. Ok...So AF came at the right time, and lasted 3 days (which is shorter than normal, for me). Then, a couple days later I had cramping, on the left side only but no spotting. I am SO bloated, it is getting ridiculous! I can't help but wonder if I might be pregnant, but I afraid of taking a test and it being negative. I don't want the disappointment. What should I do?!?!

babybluez_01 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My husband and I had a similar situation. For us, the disappointment of a negative was better (less hard) than the uncertainty of not knowing. But do what is best for you. Good luck.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Wow, I thought I might seriously be losing it....until I read all your answers. I was only starting to ovulate 9 days ago and I have been having the funny little cramps on and off for the past two days...like nothing I've ever felt before. Plus three days ago I was very lightly spot bleeding. Wow our bodies are truly amazing to let you know somethng hopefully up so early. Good luck everyone!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for a couple months now. I was on depo for about 6 months, then got off it in February. I didnt start my period again till May. My period came on the same exact day (28th) every month for 3 months until this last month (August) it came on the 24th. It lasted about 5 days like a normal period. The last week I've been having cramping in my lower abdomin like menstral cramps, but I'm not suppose to start my period for another week roughly. Could I be pregnant?? Any advice would be helpful!

cherbaby |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I am having that same "tight" feeling, have been super tired, nauseated, and gassy.... I am hoping that this is due to being pg. DH thinks it is and keeps talking to my tummy. ::crosses fingers:: hopefully its not a sign of ominous news. which is a real concern since i have been told by 2 diff dr's that i will never have children. AF isn't for another 13 days though? is it to early for a test? I am pretty sure I O'd early this month...

Goldsl |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Definitely in the same boat! Since all of you posted a few mmonths ago, I hope you are all pregnant by now! Went off birth control in May '09 and was shocked to get pregnant in June! Unfortunately, I miscarried 8/1/09 and was devastated. We've started trying agin but no luck so far. I'm hoping this will be the month! AF is a week away but breasts are tender and I have that cramping pain on the right side of my lower abdomen. I will keep my fingers crossed DH and I and all of you!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I have had an irregular AF my entire life. My husband and I want to have a baby now. I had my last AF arrive on Jan. 3-7. We had had intercourse on the 8,9, & 17. I'm now having a lot of cramping, constipation and a lot of pressure in my lower abdomen. I've been taking an ovulation (over the counter) for about 2 weeks now and ovulation has been negative......could I still be pregnant?

kristinalynn1 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I started my period on the 5th of January. I was suppossed to ovulate on the 19th. We have been trying for over a year and a half and I just bought an OPK this month. I didn't get a positive result, but I felt a couple cramps yesterday. That was unusual. I don't usually get cramps. Today I still feel a little bit of pressure in my lower abdomen. This is my second child and don't remember if this is normal. My first child I had nine years ago and it was unexpected. I have also been gassy so I'm hoping after reading all these posts that I am!

babybixler |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hi Ladies! I ovulated on the 11th this month and on the 19th I began having cramping that was very similar to the cramping I get right before AF arrives. It lasted about a day and a half, but I've been having twinges and slight cramping on and off, all day long, ever since. I don't know, since the cramping hasn't gone away, if this was implantation or not. I have also been more gassy than normal for the past couple days. AF is due tomorrow, so DH and I are keeping our fingers crossed!!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I have PCOS, so i ovulate every 37 days. I am on 28 and so I am not due for my period until next week. I don't get cramps but this morning i felt cramping in my lower stomach. I just now noticed I had a little blood when I wiped but it wasn't period blood (not that I know of). I have been taking vitex to see how that helps with the PCOS. Does anyone have the same symptoms?

britt1690 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I'm on day 22 now and my cramping is getting only a little worse......it's about 3 inches below my belly button and I'm gassy feeling at times too. I have no other symptoms though. Thoughts?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My Husband and I had sex on the 17th. On the 18th I noticed egg-white mucus (the first time since we've been trying that I've actually noticed it), i used an ovulation strip and it came back positive. Same thing the next day and we had sex again. Unfortunately this was on day 22 and 23 of my 30 day cycle. Seems like it would be kind of late fore me to ovulating. My period hasn't shown yet and for the last 6 months it's been almost like clockwork and should have been here yesterday or today. Yesterday I kept noticing cramping which usually indicates that my flow is starting but it hasn't shown yet. I'm really excited but I don't want to jinx it. Even though I ovulated so late in my cycle I'm wondering what the chances are that I could be pregnant?

NarcJag |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I've been crampy for the past two days. AF isn't due until the 16th next month (January's ended a week or so ago). I'm not even do to be ovulating for another four days. Could this be implantation cramping? Is it possible that I ovulated early? DH and I have sex pretty much everyday, and we had sex while I was on my period. We've been trying since October, so I'm starting to get anxious.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hello ladies, I had my lmpJjan 5th according to site my ovulation was the Jan18th. I had sex Jan 15- Jan 23 every other day. On Jan 25 I began feeling menstrual cramps and frequent urination and (tmi alert) my urine smelled like a bus station restroom(sorry). I went to doctor on Jan 27 and was given UTI antibiotics for 3 days even though the only sign was frequent urination. Frequency has not stopped. Well today Feb 1st I took a HPT and it was BFN. What do you ladies think

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hi girls. I'm new to the Bump, and I'm also TTC #2. I'm becoming frustrated because we didn't try longer than a month with our first, and now it's been at least four months for this time around. I know that's nothing...and I apologize for my naive-ness! Since ov, I've experienced a lot of cramping, daily, for the past week or more. This morning it feels more like AF cramps, which is making me very sad--but hopefully things will start to look up. I have been very tired, a little moody, and am now waiting until 2/4 to take a HPT. Cross your fingers!!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hello girls!! I am 4 weeks and 4 days pregnant!!! YAY!! I have been trying to conceive for about 4 years now and have went through 2 miscarriages.Both times that I miscarried, I had lots of cramping.I am having the same cramping now, so I am freaking out. I have been to the doctor already because I am high-risk due to my past and due to the fact that I have 2 blood clotting disorders. They started me on lots of meds for the bld disorders and did the Hcg blood work two days apart. My number tripled with the second , which is GREAT news. But, I am still having the cramping...What could this be???

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I started my period February 20th and since then have not started back on BC. We are now TTC and although I am skeptical that I could be pregnant, I have been cramping for like 2 weeks! Could it just be my hormones getting back to normal now that I am off BC?

StephDK |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My husband and I are trying to conceive...but it's been difficult because my periods have been irregular for almost the last year. The doctor isn't sure why that is because I dont have any other signs or symptoms of any disorders. But anyways...we just ordered and OPK and I'm waiting for it to get here (we ordered 50 tests lol). The other day I had period like cramping on my left side only...I've never felt that before on just one side and even though I don't know for sure when my next period will be, I do know that the earliest I would get it is on April 5th. Think it couldve been implantation cramping? I didn't have any spotting tho...

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I am having cramps also. It feels like I am due for my period but I am not due until May 8th. I ovulated this past week (April 22-23) Today is April 25th and I have cramping and slight bleeding but only when I go to the bathroom...I was just wondering if anyone has the same symptoms and if you do did you take a pregnancy test? Thanks!

Dpimental1 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Today I had a few cramps that felt different from my usual monthly cramps. I know all of the sites say implantation occurs 7-10 days after conception but I have a shorter cycle than most. Could this cause implantation to happen sooner, say 5 days after conception?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

first of all- CONGRATULATIONS MOMMIES!! I just found out on Monday that we expecting! I've been cramping for about a week or so...had what i think was a little implantation spotting (hoping, trying not to worry) i'm guessing i'm around 4.5 weeks pregnant. i have a dr appointment tomorrow for him to refer me to an OBGYN. Hoping to get any sort of news to calm my anxious feelings- I just want to know it's implanted where it's supposed to be, and progressing right on schedule!.

Good luck to all and I hope everything is working out for you guys!!! I too have only been ttc for 3 months and have been having a few sharp pains come and go for 2 weeks now and today is the 29th day which is not unusual for me to start now. I'm crossing my fingers that these pains are different and not gas (like everyone keeps telling me). I'm trying not to think about it too much because I have had my hopes up before, so trying to stay positive. I'm praying that we get some good news! Good luck to all of you!!!

LINDS2004 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I too have been experiencing slight "cramping" sesations but only for a minute or less. AF was supposed to come Tuesday/ Wednesday of this week but no sign. I am not worried, just frustrated because I want to know either way. I have taken a few HPT in the past couple of days and all of them come out with not pregnant. I just took myself off the pill in June (AF's visit was June 15th) . Should I wait a few more days to see if it comes out Positive or call a doctor to see if I just may not be getting AF's visit this month because my body isn't used to not having the Pill?

mrscheese15 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I started having light cramping on Friday night (3 days ago, 8 days after ovulation), AF isn't supposed to come until Wednesday of this week, and I usually only get cramps the day before or day of AF's arrival. Today I started getting lower back aches and bloating... but still things that don't normally show up until AF has started. Other strange things have been happening that usually take place the week before AF, so let's hope their absence means something better is coming!!!!

ea_kieffer |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hi all, We just found out that we are pregnant yesterday. I had spotting and slight cramping and still do. The dr said we are checking my hcg level again tomorrow (when AF was supposed to come). But she said that it happens for different reasons, everyone is different.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hey ladies! Ok here's my situation. My hubby and I have been TTC for 7 months now. Thursday and Friday of last week I felt mild cramping (for me) with AF supposed to show on the 27th. She showed on the 28th instead and only lasted a day. Today it seems like she's gone home already (haven't seen any evidence of AF) and I'm feeling mild cramping. After 7 months and nothing I'm not sure if I should take a test yet or not. so many negatives can be frustrating!

DH and I have been TTC for about 10 months. I had gone to the dr. and they were going to line me up for some tests. AF was due 4 days ago. For about 4 or 5 days prior to that day I had some slight cramping, but totally different from what I usually experice before my period, so I was really hoping it was implantation cramps. I tested the day after AF was supposed to show and got a big YES! Can't wait to call the dr!

I'm curious as to how soon one can experience implantation cramps.

They're not as bad as menstrual cramps, and they only last for a little while then go away. And this has been goin on for nearly a week. They come and they go. They come and the go. Can anyone tell me what's going on here?

I like so many of you have been having these kind of crampy feelings. not as strong as menstral cramps. Also been very gassy. DH & I just started trying. I stopped taking my bc 2 weeks ago and we had sex saturday. Could I have gotten pregnant that quickly? AF isnt due for another 10 days.

kayla_loves_matt2008 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Kayla. First of all if you are not trying to have a kid use protection. It's cheap and if you are old enough to have sex you should be old enough to walk into a store and buy protection. There is no age limit. Secondly I am assuming you already took your preggo test. Not sure what the results are but if it's positive look up a group called younglives that is for teen girls.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

hmm... so my husband and I have been TTC for only a month now.. I've been having a lot of really different feelings and been emotional about it all. I've been very sensitive to smells, very tender breasts, cramping, tiredness, gassy and nausea for the last 2 weeks.. from all I have read.. these aren't for normal periods..especially wayyy different from any menstrual symptoms i've ever had..which makes me kinda nervous. I went to the doctor because I could tell i had a UTI, and well I went to the doctor today..(not a great visit should I say).. They said I do have a UTI, but couldn't explain the other pains and symptoms.. its getting to where I can't sleep at night because I can't be comfortable or anything. They took a test..it came back negative, but I kinda think it may be too soon? Since the doctors was a bad visit, we are planning to take an at home test soon, if we still feel uncomfortable and I'm still hurting we plan to go have a blood test ran to be 100% sure its not something horrible. Wish me luck!! and if any comments or anything please feel free! its nice to have this community of ttc & moms out here! :)

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My DH & I have been TTC for 4 months now, and this month I used an OPK. I saw the smiley face on day 20, and now (day 25) I have some slight cramping. Is it possible these are menstrual cramps so soon after ovulation, or could they be implantation cramps? My cycles range from 28-35 days.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I woke up in the middle of the night last night with cramping. It wasn't anything major or severe, but it felt like a lot of muscle tightness around my ovaries. My husband and I just started TTC. AF should be here in about a week. Even though I think I've already ovulated, is there still a chance of conceiving? I'm wondering if these cramps are signs of pregnancy!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Me and my husband just started trying, and we are not patient at all! I've started feeling those same cramps, fatigue, nausea, and some spotting. I am supposed to start my period in a few days but no signs or bleeding for a period at all yet. We are both REALLY hoping that we are pregnant. We are taking a test tomorrow and we are hoping and hoping that it is POSTIVE!!!!!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Did IVF egg transfer 11 days ago and I'm having cramps. Did pregnancy test last night and it's positive! The cramps are mild and they come and go. It's been more than 5 days of cramps, so I do believe they are normal. I go to the doctor tomorrow, so i'll keep you updated to what they believe is normal. Good luck guys

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Whew! So happy these cramps are a GOOD thing! I've been TTC for 12 months this month and I'm 35 days past my last period, took two tests tonight (First Response tests) and they had one dark line and one light line. My BFF told me to call the Dr. tomorrow to find out. But I've done that twice in the past 12 months only to have to pay a co-pay, have my insurance billed and get a negative result. I think I'd rather wait and take another home pregnancy test, a digital one this time, maybe in like two days. Have had this awful cramping for 6 days. Kept thinking it was my period about to start. I feel huge already and if I"m pregnant... it's gonna suck just because I already feel so huge and bloated! But here's hopin'!!!! :)

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I had cramps that made me believe I was about to start my period at 6-8 days after my IUI procedure. I thought all was lost this month. The cramps continued off and on for 2 1/2 days. I found out on 2/21 that I was pregnant, so what I had been feeling was implantation. I highly recommend the "pregnant" "not pregnant" digital tests. by the time I got to that test I couldn't tell what was a positive and what was a negative pregnancy test by comparing lines

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My dh and I have been ttc for five years. For the last month and a half i have been taking fertilaid. and my dh has been for the last two weeks. we have been using opk's for the last few years on and off. we had taken a break since november to deal with a death in the family. we decided this month a few days shy of the ovulation date to buy some opk's. two days after i got a slight line, then the next it was a bright line. today is 6 dpo and since last night i have had these cramps off and on. I'm not getting my hopes up, but it sounds similar.

My husband and I have been trying for 6 years now. We just tried the IUI procedure for the second time. I should start Wednesday, today is Saturday, but I am haveing low, sharp, cramps. I Have been having them now for 3 days, and a nurse friend of mine said that it sounded like Implatation cramp to her. I don't want to get my hopes up, but I have been wanting this for so long. I am also more emotional than usual, and my boobs are itchy.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

It has been 7 days since the last time I had sexual intercourse with my boyfriend. I have failed to get my period. My last period started March the 9th and ended on March the 12th, it is now April the 12th. Today I was out working on tearing down an old building in my backyard. My hand slipped off of the board, and hit me in the breast. I noticed that it was a bit sore and tender. I have no clue why. I didn't had any cramp or spotting at all, up until about an hour ago. It is a light cramp that comes and goes every few minutes. I wake up in the mornings occasionally feeling sick, and I get extremly tired easy. What could this all be? Can you help? If so, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you (:

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

So here's my story... I have been using the nuvaring for the last few months now. My last period started March 28th (I had taken the ring out the day before) I had my period which ended on the 1-2 of April... On the 3rd I put a new ring in and immediately had "protected" (as protective as that newly inserted ring is) sex with my husband. Right after I thought how silly it was that we didn't wait longer so I just said "ok so remember this day... who knows, this could be the day we have a baby." Totally not thinking it could happen but also not so sure it couldn't happen. ANYWAY. Long story short(er)... I had some of those cramps and other early signs and I didn't feel comfortable keeping the ring in so yesterday (the 11th) I took the ring out and have still been having the cramps, uneasy stomach, joint and back pain, etc. I am planning on taking a test in a week or so but I wan to know if anyone thinks you can actually get pregnant the day after your period... I don't know when I ovulate so I guess this could be ovulation cramps but I have never had these kinds of cramps before (they woke me up last night they were so persistent)

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I definitely got the implantation cramps on day 7 post ovulation. They were subtle but enough to notice for sure. I probably wouldn't have noticed them that much had I not read about the timing of them. Sure enough, BFP 6 days later! Yes, I tested two days before my period was due. Another early sign that I had was about 10 DPO I had a dull ache in my vagina area (kind of like the feeling you have down there on the heaviest day of your period). I also had some very runny, watery discharge after the implantation and still do (this wasn't normal for me). Very excited! Good luck to all :)

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I am so new to all of this....this is my first pregnancy and I just founf out yesterday. What an overwhelming but happy time. I had implantation spotting last week and I thought my cycle was starting a week early. It occured for a couple days and then went away, here we are a week later and my blood test comes back positive!!! I am having light cramping but nothing to serious...Hope this gives some reassurance...

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My husband and I have been TTC for a couple of months now. I finally went to my ob last month and told him that we were serious about it. He gave me some meds and I followed his instructions exactly. Sometime last week I noticed some slight cramping very similar to menstral cramps but less severe. My breasts feel heavy and my nipples are very tender. I have also had a milky discharge. Today was the day that my cycle was supposed to start. I took a test yesterday but it was negative. Could there still be hope that I'm preggo?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My boyfriend and I have just been using condoms for the last six months and about 9 days ago we had a little bit of an uh-o. I used one of the ovulation calculators and it said I would have been ovulating around that day. For the last three days I have been very nauseous and having these really bad cramps in my abdomin and lower back. Not to be gross but it feels like I need to have a BM but I have been pretty regular in that department. Today I started feeling like I was getting menstral cramps. My period should come for abt another week. COuld these be implantation cramps?

I also have been having these, I had the Merina removed at the beginning of June, would, I had it in for a year, and stopped having AF, I am not only having the cramps but have had the different occations where the mucus is dark brownish semi-thick, I have been tired, nausious on occations and lately having alot of hot flashes, I took a HPT just the other day and it was negative, what are the chances this is a false negative? how long should I wait to test again?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

On June 17th my dr started me on clomid 50 mg. My husband and I had sex everyday from June 22th-June 26th since the dr advised that I was definately ovulating. Now for the last 3 days I have been experiencing cramps, frequent urination, moodiness, strange change in breasts (sore, larger), restless nights and now waking up between 4am and 5am every morning. With my next appt being on July 13th I am a bit nervous since I do not know what is going on with my body. Is this a side effect of clomid or could I be pregos? After going through a miscarriage a little over 1 yr ago, I am really nervous to find out...Any similar stories?

ttcgirl |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

To ttcgirl- It deff sounds like you are pregnant. Those are all signs of pregnancy. I would love to know the result of your test! So here is my story.... Me and my husband decided to start ttc in late january of this yr. We found out we were pregnant 3 months later. It had only taken us about a month and a half to actally concieve, and only one period! I was so shocked at how easy it was. But then our hearts were broken just 1 week after finding out we were pregnant by the doctor telling us i had miscarried. It was so devastating to say the least! So last month we decided to start trying again. I had my first period since the MC(i've always been very irregular) Jun 26th thru the 29th. Only 4 days (unusual). My fertile days- for someone who is regular- started July 5th thru today, the 11th, making yesterday the day i ovulated. We have had sex everyday since the 5th. (told you we are trying ha) but, anyways.. I have had these cramps in my belly for the past week. I don't know what they are from bc im not pose to start my period for about 13 days. I have also had alot of back pain, a little moodiness, and i am alwasy tired! I wonder if i got pregnant right before my period last month bc docs say u are most fertile the couple mnths after a MC. Or if i got pregnant the last day or two of my period. Hoping for no period in 13 days and for a BFP!! I really hope i am pregnant! We want a baby extremely bad!!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

ttcgirl & kaceysmith0916 - Good luck to you both! Let us know what happens. My husband has been ready for another little one for a while (We have a 2 1/2-year-old), but I have not, having lost both my parents within a year-and-a-half of each other. In April, I realized it was time to have another little one, and I was ready to give our little guy a sibling. Officially started TTC in May, and nothing May or June. This cycle started June 22, and we started TTC again on July 1, day 10 of my cycle. AF is not due until next Wednesday. Since Monday, I've had body aches off and on and feel off, have been headachy off and on, had hot flashes yesterday (found out they are common in early pregnancy), have been feeling crampy off and on, and was dizzy yesterday morning. I never get dizzy with AF, and I know it's not flu season, & I sometimes get hot flashes during AF but rarely before, and I'm starting to feel run down - sniffling/sneezing. With that being said, it would be awfully early for me for AF to appear, and all this started Monday. Hoping for a positive outcome, otherwise we'll just try again next month :-)

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

@morfy- Thank you! We are about on the same cycle almost. I started my period just 4 days after you so we are very close together. And i have been having the same exact symptoms as you! No joke!! I feel crampy a whole lot, headaches, some backaches, i have been getting a few hot flashes too. I plan to take a pregnancy test next wednesday, the 20th, which is my birthday. That will be 4 days before my expected period. Im going to take a clear blue digital so hopefully if im pregnant it will pick it up since they can pick up pregnancy hormones 5 days before your expected period! Good Luck to you! Let us know the outcome :)) I will post my results when i take it

kaceysmith0916 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I took the first response "test 6 days before your missed period" test & I got TWO positive results. Went to the doctor a few days later & it was confirmed again, that I was pregnant. I highly highly recommend this test to anybody who is impatient, like me...

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Just an update. I hate it when I look for answes on these websites and women post their symptoms bt never come back and say what their results were, so here are mine. I posted a few days agobw my symptoms and everything. I have took a test today and it still says negative. But im hoping im just testing too early. Which is prolly the case bc im very irregular, even b4 my miscarriage. So I prolly didnt ovulate when I was pose to. Im gna take my next test on wednesday, and hope and pray for a positive. As for symptom, im having lower back aches, headaches, and some clear CM. thats about it. Baby dust to all! God bless!

kaceysmith0916 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Another update: I took a test yesterday, as i said i was goin to in my previous posts, and it was negative :( I was really sad! And aggravated too, of course. So i told myself that i was going to stop thinking about it all the time,and yesterday was a pretty good day. Well last me and my husband went to wal mart for a few things so i decided to pick up another FRER to take sometime in the nxt week. Well of course the POAS addict that i am i wanted to take it this morning. Well, im now a little confused. There is no second pink line, but i have a shadowy line, that is only seen in the light. I knw this sounds crazy. So i thought maybe its an evap line. Well i google it and see how often FRER have evap lines. Well it is possible, of course. But then i saw women who had that shadowy line came to find out that that line got darker and darker with time. Sooo... i took another test 3 hrs later. Same things. Still got the shadowy line. Im gonna wait, TRY TO WAIT anyways, 2 days and test again on Saturday! Hoping for a BFP!! I have prayed and prayed and prayed on this! Good luck to all and God bless!! Loads and loads of sticky baby dust to all!

kaceysmith0916 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

What were your results kacey? I'm having the same things but i haven tested yet, will tomorrow morning though and I, too, will post my results. 7dpo had pains resembling an agitated Ovarian cyst. Cervix actually felt sore and cm was so thick and abundant it was like eucerin (the lotion) lol sorry tmi I stand by FRER because they have been known to consistently detect 12.5 mIU/ML in urine. Gotta love peeonastick.com! Haha I'm definitely a poas addict ;p with my last pregnancy (which unfortunately ended in a missed miscarriage and d&c may 18, 2011 at 9wks1day) I just knew I was pregnant before I tested but because it was unplanned I hadn't kept track of signs and symptoms. Here I am only 9dpo and I will test at 10dpo (tomorrow morning) and again at 15dpo if its negative. Being pregnant not so long ago I am very aware of the location of my uterus which has been cramping, pulling, tugging and annoying me for 3 days now. Wish DH and I luck and sticky baby dust to you all!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I first have to say that I am so glad I'm not alone when I feel like the waiting game cannot get worse. This is the first month my husband and I started TTC. I went of BC in April so I could track my BBT and have been using OTCOK ever since. As of today I am 8 days PO. Today I started to have cramps which are similar to those I get when I am ovulating. They lasted for about 3 hours and were paired with lower back pain which has been on and off since earlier this week. I also seem to be really tired and feel like I have heavy breasts though they are not swollen. I am so anxious to take a HPT!!! And I do not like the waiting! Here's to wishing us all loads of sticky baby dust! I will post again with my test results.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My husband and I started TTC this past cycle. The 1st day of of my period was July 13th. Knowing that I am fertile between 10-16 days, we started the 9th and did it every other day up to the 14th day. My cycles have been 25-26 days, so since I was knew I was due for my period last weekend, I took an ept Thursday, August 4th. I had a gut feeling I was pregnant because I was constantly peeing and SUPER gasy and I never am. It came back negative! I was a little bummed, but didn't stress because it was our 1st try. Starting Friday night, I had "period cramps" and was a little broken out, so I for sure knew I was going to get my period! Saturday and Sunday came and NO PERIOD...Sunday night, I took a hpt for fun and got a HUGE positive!! We were in shock..I still am!!! because I 1st had a not pregnant result! We ran to CVS and got another brand just to be sure and within 5 sec. of taking that test, we got a +!!! So I am pregnant...still having "period" like cramps and no period!! Just made my appointment for 8-26, so I'll be a little of 6 weeks. I plan on surprising our family and friends that weekend!!!! Stay positive guys (no pun intended) and don't lose faith!!!!! And those of you who took an ept, there might not be enough hcg in your urine..that was the case for me...3 days later...it was crystal clear!! Goodluck!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

hi everyone, since yesterday i have been having the cramps also. when I have my period I don't really have any cramps, so i am also thinking it is implantation cramps. I'm not due for my period till the between the 20-23rd of this month aug 2011. I was pregnant before back in 09 and didn't know I was till I went the doctor to take test for a surgery, but I miscarried about a couple weeks later. I didn't even know i was pregnant even though i missed my period I just thought I was having an irregular month. I was trying to conceive then too. I have pcos, diabetes and overweight. so many things against me. should I wait to take a home pregnancy test till after my period is due, even though I am having cramps?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hi everyone, My husband and I have been TTC for about 4 months now. I was previously on BC for almost 10 years. Every month I keep getting my hopes up that were pregnant. This month I have been tracking my BBT and I am thinking the O happened about 1 week ago today. I am expecting AF in 6 days. I took a pregnancy test this morning and got a negative. This afternoon I had some mild cramping on my left side that only lasted a few minutes. Could this be implantation or am I just wanting to be pregnant I am imagining it. My BBT has been elevated the past few days, but I just don't want to get my hopes up again! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Morning doogiebug...I would wait a few more days to take another test. I took one early and there wasn't enough hormone to detect I was pregnant! I took another one the day I was suppossed to get my period and it was crystal clear! Good luck!

sylvia1023 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

just wondering if anyone has ever gotten pregnant after missing birth control pills? i missed three pills (2 in a row and then 1 two weeks later) and my husband and i never used any form of back up protection nor did i ever double up on pills. they make me sick if i do. i have had mild cramping on and off for 3 days now and my breasts feel swollen and tender. my AF isn't suppose to be for another week and 4 days. i'm not sure if the cramping is because i missed the pills and my cycle is just off or if it's because i might be pregnant. i wish i didn't have to wait another week to find out for sure. i'm wondering what the possibility is if i am pregnant. we would be excited. we already have one little guy.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Well as of today AF is officially 2 days late. I took a test yesterday and it was still negative? Could it be possible to still be pregnant and not have enough hcg produced yet to pick it up?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I've been TTC since my miscarriage in january. I stopped charting my temperature months ago because i felt like the stress of TTC, and trying too hard, was keeping me from it. I have really irregular periods, especially in the summertime...they are superlong! Sometimes up to 45 days...but since i am so irregular, its hard to tell when I ovulate. Anywho, i'm on day 39 right now and I started having these cramps off and on all day today. They feel a LOT different than menstral cramps. It's more centered, and short bursts rather than constant all day. At first was just mild and they keep getting worse, like somebody is pinching the side of my uterus with their fingernails..and its really deep.

I had a miscarriage in June and me and my boyfriend has been trying to conceive. I just found out I was pregnant Monday on the 19th. I took two pregnant tests on Monday and went to the health department and took another one and it was positive. I now have been cramping on the left side of my stomach and my period is now due as of today, Im trying to see if it is coming on or if I am really pregnant. Should I take another test the end of the month or wait to see if my period comes on. They say that I am four weeks pregnant. I hope I am cause I sure do feel like it.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hi I'm ttc baby #3 with my second boy I used ovulation calculators on google and it worked. So I tried it this time round my last af was 6th september this month and fertile between 17th 22nd of this month so me and my b.f had intercourse on 16th 17th 19th and my ov day 20th, its now the 26th and since yesterday I've been having light adoman pains, and I know its not my period as that's due to come on the 4th october which is 8 days away and I never get cramps that far away from my period. I didn't really notice these pains with both my boys but as I'm paying more attention to my body I can feel it. So my question is are they implantation cramps or early af cramps. I can't take a prego tests till 30th of this month ive got my prego tests ready please help as I want to be pregnant so badly sad I know but it's true.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I also think i'm experiencing implantation cramps. My husband and I have been trying for a couple months now. But this is the first month that I have slight cramping going on. I don't get my AF for another 17 days and this cramping has been going on for about 3 days now with out bleeding. I also have had no appetite for a good 3 or 4 days. And now on top of it, my breasts are starting to get a little sore. I usually don't get these symptoms until a week before AF arrives. Do you think I might be pregnant or could it be just a lovely 2.5 weeks of pms?

Clairem24 |

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I've been having these cramps off and on for a week now. Sometimes really bad, and sometimes not so bad. I did have my period on the 22nd, I'm due next week for my next period and I hope I don't get it =) But my question is... does your CM change at all during this time if you are pregnant? Not to say too much information, but mine isn't stringy and thin anymore like it used to be. What does that mean?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Here is what i believe implantation cramps feel like. I am 5 1/2 mo pregnant. I stopped taking pill in december. We werent trying hard, but werent preventing either. I have never been pregnant btw. In early june one day, i kept getting a stabbing pain that would start in the same place, on my lower left abdomen, kind of travel towards the center and go away. It would last 30 sec to 1 min. It started every once in a while and became more consistant. Approx 1 min on, one min off. It was kind of like a light house light panning around. I dont get cramps during my period, so have never felt this before. The frequency of the same pain, same place, same time intervals freaked me out, so i went into my regular dr that day. Did some tests, no explanation. He did ask me if i was pregnant, and i told him no, b/c i had just had my period a week plus before. Again, ive never been pregnant to know what to look for. Pain only happened that one day. On july 4, i found out that i was 5-6 weeks pregnant. I was just telling my sister about how weird the pains were, and how i wondered if it was somehow related. She said that i probably had implantation pains. I had never heard of them, and was just looking them up, abd now im pretty sure that is what was happening. I dont know. Hope this helps someone.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I had the strangest thing happen this morning. Well, strange for me! I had AF on 5 NOV and I know I ovulated a little early as I was checking it with the saliva tester (not sure what it's called). I believe I ovulated no later than the 14th of this month and possibly before. Anyway, this morning around 4 am, I was woken up by a sever sharp pain in my uterus area. I normally lay on my stomach, but after I was woken by this pain, I went to the bathroom and came to lay back down and could not lay on my stomach as I was sore from the pain earlier. When I got up at 6am for the day, I went to the bathroom and when I wiped, I had a pinkish tinge on the toilet paper and then some CM that was brown. I have been spotting on and off all day today. Period's not due for a week and a half. I've never had implantation bleeding before and I've had 4 pregnancies. The 4th pregnancy ended in a miscarriage just the first of October. We waited until I had at least one AF before TTC, which came exactly 4 weeks from the miscarriage. I feel pretty confident that this happened because I am pregnant. Hoping! Oh and saw a post on another site today that said it's like an angel has poked you inside your utuerus with the point of a feather of their wings! Thought that was cool because it's exactly how it felt! Oh and I have had minor crampin on and off today, but not bad cramping at all, just enough I know it's there!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I am pretty sure I am experiencing implantation cramps because they are dull, pulling, twinges that oddly feel cold (that sounds weird,but it's the best way I can explain it). They are not like menstrual cramps to me AT ALL and I'm kind of wondering has anyone felt like this?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My ovulation cramping was actually very mild compared to what AF cramps are like. And the second indication I had was that my lower back didn't ache like AF was coming. The next day all of a sudden my breast were unusually sore. I took 2 tests; a digital and a first response; 2 BFP!!!!!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I just found our yesterday that I was pregnant - and yesterday and today I have had cramps - not terrible, just annoying. My Dr. said that it was from the uterus growing and shaping, no biggie :) But cramps do not mean that you didnt get pregnant - it could mean that you are pregnant if you arent bleeding at all :) Go check!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I found out that I'm pregnant but I can't get to the doctor until the 9th. At that point I will be 6 weeks. I have had these cramps in my hips, thighs which I thought were a normal (common) back ache for me. Today, my cramps have moved in lower.. Just kind of dull aches, and even down in the v area...it can cramp there. No bleeding. If you read this and do not think it's normal let me know. Thanks!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hello everyone, I've been to this site plenty of times but this will be the first time I am seeking advice. I had a LEEP procedure 3 weeks ago and that same night my cycle came. Needless to say the following week or so I called my doctor to see if intercourse was okay because I was ovulating and he said yes. Well here we are and I am having this crampy feeling and today I noticed a light pink discharge, but my cycle is due within the next four or five days so I'm thinking these are early pms cramps. Do you guys think I can be pregnant? Should I test now or wait?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I am 4 weeks and I have been having cramps for about 2 weeks now. I thought it was my AF but after 2 days of being late a tested and it came back positive. I went to the doctor and she said these cramps are completely normal and can happen through out the pregnancy when your uterus grows. Don't be afraid if you have these cramps I know I am not. I just think of them as my little baby growing.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hi guys! This is my first post. I've been TTC for 8 months now, I'm 32. I've had a lot of disappointment especially once, when my period was 3 days late and I was pretty sure that it has worked. Then it came and it was worse than any I've ever experienced, with lots of pain and blood clots. Doc ran a bunch of tests and told me everything is normal. My cycle is normally between 24- 27 days and TODAY IS DAY 31!!! We decided that Valentine's Day is a good day to take the test so I'm doing it tonight. I've been feeling mild cramping for many days now, on the left side where I get the ovulation pain. I'm so scared of taking the test because I felt like such a failure before when the results were negative. I also think I'm peeing more frequently but I feel like every month I've been "making up" symptoms so I'm not sure anymore. No sore breasts or anything and 3 days ago I saw a little brownish discharge, kind of like after period so I hope that was implantation bleeding. Sorry for the essay but I'm at work and I'm so excited and can't even talk to anyone about it. Please pray for me =)

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hi all, this is my first comment on here. My DH and I have been ttc for nearly 2.5years. We have been refsered by our GP to a infertility consultant. I have had a pelvic ultrasound and an HSG which both came out clear. DH sperm count is good. My consultant says following HSG there is an increased chance of getting pregnant. I ovulated the day after the HSG and have had cramping pains on 9 and 10 DPO. I have taken two pregnancy tests (first response) and both are BFNs :-( I am still hoping that I am pregnant though. AF is due to visit in three days. It she is unwelcome :-) Here is rj hoping that I am pregnant - we are so ready! Baby dust to all. Baby

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hi guys I am new to the Bump. My period was supposed to be july Fri 13 It was 3 days late. Last night i was laying down and i felt wet , when i wiped i had brownish blood like old blood, i thought i started my period but i have NO cramps what so ever. and believe when i say that when i have my periods i literally cry from the pain and i have to get pain killers. but this time.. nothing just random soft cramps here and there, and i feel tight and pressure sometimes i feel like a pinching sensation and it doesnt even last a second. I had intercourse with my bf 7/5 could this be implantation bleeding? Also i sometimes feel like my abdomen gets really hot out of nowhere idk why. please reply, thank you.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Whitekitty, you should be far enough along to do a hpt (home pregnancy test). Just use first morning urine to test. That is supposed to be the best to use. Good Luck!!!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Q: I have also been feeling slight cramping throughout the past 5 days and my period isn't due for another 5 days. In my previous relationship we tried TTC for 3 years and nothing happened. During my ovulation period we had intercourse but he never finished inside but we didn't use protection either. I can't see how I could be pregnant as I tried for so long prior but I've been having these cramps for the past week and did take a test today which came back negative. With my period being 5 more days to come, could this mean I'm not pregnant?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I've also been having soreness in my breast for the past day and a half, with slight lower back pain. I don't want to get myself excited as I have tried for a few years now but I dont ever recall these symptons prior to my period.

Do not click on the ".org" site above. It's full of stupid random text. For example "However, due to the introduction of fusion is very little honey color with the argument that its decline has time to throw." This is under the section "Early Period". DIAF.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hi ladies - I used to look up every symptom on here to see if I was pregnant or what was going on. In reality, the exact same symptom can mean pregnant, problem or nothing at all! Everyone is different. Therefore, the best sign of pregnancy is to wait (without stressing if possible) for the missed period. I've shared my experiences below in case it is helpful to others. I am currently 33 and 6 weeks pregnant with first! June - around 6-7 weeks pregnant I started seeing pinkish tinge when I wiped. The next morning, the amount of blood increased throughout the morning from a couple bright red drops to full blown bleeding in toilet (as if I started my period). That morning I also had cramps - not too bad, but similar to PMS cramps. I miscarried and passed the embryo naturally a week later. Naturally, we wanted to TTC again right away, but waited 2 cycles. July-August - my normal 28 day cycle was gone and was now more like 31 days, but functioning like normal. September - I had spotting one week before my period, so was excited that it could be implantation bleeding... it wasn't BFN. October - I had bad cramps starting about 5-6 dpo that lasted for 4-5 days. I also spotted a couple days before period was expected. BFN November - I had severe cramps and nausea for only one day 6 dpo (1 week before period). It went away, then I spotted a couple days before expected period. I got a BFP the day before missed period! I spotted through the whole time I was supposed to have my period - light brownish color. Now I am crossing fingers that this little guy sticks around this time :) Hope this is helpful - goodluck ladies!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I'm not sure if I've had implantation cramps or not. I'm 4 days late on AF. I've taken 2 at home tests and a urine test at the doctors, all negative. For the past 7+ months I have never been late on AF, always perfectly on time. I've had nausea mid month, heartburn at night, and cramps that only last about a min every now and then. I've had insomnia for about a week and half now, I can't get to sleep until about 4am. Anyone else had this experience? It's just not like me to be late on AF, especially 4 days. Could I be pregnant and just too early to tell?

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

Hello! Me and my DH have been TTC for 2 cycles. I also believe that the best thing to do is wait for the missed period....at least logically :) However, I can't help but wonder now that I've been feeling some cramping, increased gas, and heartburn (never get heartburn). I noticed that I had the egg white like mucous (first time noticing this) and I was with my husband for the next few days after that. Here's for hoping the cramps are implantation! @Mrskeyte9 I would maybe take another HPT in a few days, if AF still doesn't show.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

I only have one tube on the left and have been trying to conceive for 8 years(trying natural until i have enough money saved up for IVF). I believe in GOD and know anything is possible and miracles happen everyday. So, on 6dpo i had strong fluttering and twinges in my uterus ALL DAY LONG. I didnt think too much abou that, but on 8dpo I had heartburn and dizziness in the morning and starting cramping around 9-10 am they were pretty strong period-like cramps in my uterus, they stopped around 5pm that evening. i have had nothing since then. My period should be due on or about March 6th. Im really hoping this is good news!!! Any thoughts on this???

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My fiance and I have and have not been trying. I have personally been feeling light cramping and last night after I went to pee I noticed some light pink color on my toilet paper. Thinking we are not pregnant I figured I must be gettingmy period early, I never have cramped before just felt heavy pressure at that time of the month. So I used a tampon well i got to change it this morning and it was more light pink and light brown? very little...am I pregnant? My cycle shouldnt start until the third of August.

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My period is only due in a week but I had for 2 days very light bleeding that looked almost like pink discharge. I've also been experiencing cramping on my left side and bloating. My nipples are so sore. I've never been pregnant before so I'm kind of confused as to whether this is potentially a pregnancy or just one messed up pms. I don't get pms symptoms ever. Please if one of you ladies couple help me out with some advice that would be much appreciated! Cheers ladies!!

Q&A: What are implantation cramps?

My hubby and I have been TTC since February - AF was regular in February and March. Late last week and this weekend I had a light queasy feeling and some cramping (no spotting), but Sunday night and throughout the day on Monday I had an awful headache and some serious cramping that came in waves, to the point where it was interrupting my sleep (the headache and cramps). Today (Tuesday), I feel really queasy, but no cramping. I haven't noticed anything about my boobs, and have been peeing a little more than normal. I told hubby last night and even though Aunt Flo is due next week, we're going to do a HPT on Thursday or Friday. Could these be early signs of pregnancy?
