Hi everyone,

Hubby & I are TTC & since the MC in early Dec, I've had problems determining when I'm ovulating (I'm used to being able to feel when it happens) so we just winged it this month. I didn't think we made much of an effort but I worked out we did the deed on CD14 (which is when I usually O)... For a couple of days but mostly yesterday, I've had weird cramping... It's a constant ache all around the reproductive area (not on one side or whatever)... When I rub it it goes away but comes back when I stop. As in the title, I was CD25 yesterday.

What do you think this could be - good or bad? huh.gif

Hey mate i had a throbing ache on one side of my uterus (for 4 days before my period was due) the cycle we got our BFP.

My cousin and my BFF both had really bad cramping early on in their pregnancies. And both had perfect little people.

It could be AF getting ready to arrive BUT it could also be implantation...


hope you get your BFP

Hi Jodi,

Thanks for your response. I did a HPT this morning because I had heard people cramp before AF/BFP's.

It was a BFN... So, I'm back to square one. Could this be AF cramps before AF? I don't usually get cramps at all so for me to get them before AF is a bit weird.

I have a 30-32 day cycle (usually day 31)... So it is now CD27 & with a BFN, I guess I should expect AF soon hey. Bummer.

I guess I'll know on Tuesday/Wednesday.

Thanks again.

Hi,
Just wanted to let you know that I had terrible cramping in the tww when I conceived DS.  I thought AF was going to arrive any minute (but obviously never did!).

I didn't get a positive HPT with him til I was over 5 weeks pregnant, so I wouldn't give up hope yet on the basis of the BFN you had, it is early days yet.

Good luck!  original.gif

Hi Emma,

I am exactly the same as you on CD 25 and have had some cramping yesterday and today.  I have also had very very light spotting only visible when wiping so not sure what is happing.

FWIW all 3 of my successful pregnancies I had cramping for ages before I thought of testing as I was sure that AF was going to come.

Good luck, I am really interested to see how you go.  Please keep me posted.
