I've had cramping today that initially was more on the right side, then on both sides and now back to the right side. At one point I thought my body was really wackadoo and that I was going to wipe and see AF. It felt just like cramps when AF is about to start (the "gotta get to the bathroom, it's starting" feeling).
When I wiped, I had some CM that had some brown in it. CM has been drying up more and more each day, so it wasn't a significant amount but it was on TP and some on my cervix.
So is that common to have cramping at that DPO? Do you ladies get that?

I actually had that for the first time this past cycle. I am not really sure what it means but I took note of it and plan to mention it to my doctor next time I call in. Mine was at 4, 5, and 6 DPO. Spotting and cramping that early is too early for IB or AF and too late to be from O. I am not sure it is common but I don't think it is necessarily a really bad thing either.
Thank you *Kiliki* for the amazing new siggy!!
I posted this to TTC board as well b/c they had a lot of activity this weekend. One person asked if I was sure I O'd when I thought I did. There's always room for error, especially since I'm new to this, so it is possible. However, just going off of EWCM and OPKs alone, I initially thought my O date was correct. I think I did O on Wednesday late night/early Thurs. (see chart)
However...I wasn't able to do an OPK on Thursday. My OPKs on Sat was negative, but still pretty dark. I was surprised that it still had that much color to it.
On Friday morning I woke up to a small glob of brown CM on my underwear. I chalked it up to BDing the night before, but thinking back, I don't normally have tinged CM the morning after, it's usually right after BDing when I use the bathroom.
Cramping is possible and normal. I frequently get cramps after ovulation. Usually with in a few days, then a few days later, then a few more just before AF shows. Hopefully it's a good sign!
