My period was due either yesterday or today. I have been feeling slight cramps off and on. It feels so much like my period is going to start, but it is more faint in kinda feels different I guess. I think that any feeling down there like af makes me nervous.

Have you been feeling crampy??

I had some wicked cramping Thurs/Fri (AF was due Fri/Sat) but nothing. Thurs I had IB so I think that's what the cramping was from. Cramps seem to have subsided now but NOT the bloating ... I already look like I'm 3 months pregnant and I'll only be 4 weeks on Tuesday!

Lots of cramping here too, and little random twinges and stabs. It's normally though, so I try not to think about it too much.

It's definitely a good sign! I did IUI with dd1 (Darcy) and I ended up not even testing until my nurse recommended because I had that same cramping and I thought my period was going to start any minute. I've had it some with dd2 and some this time around too.

I've had tons of cramping here too and I'm glad to see all you other ladies right there with me From what I understand it's a sign of the uterus expanding and getting ready for a pregnancy

Well, I am cramping too, again. The cramps are not horrible, they feel more like period cramps, and I get twinges now and then ... and the bloating is insane!

I have had some cramping and a feeling of tightness in my uterus. I think it is perfectly normal.

I've had quite a lot of cramping - more so than when I was pregnant with DS... A friend told me that it could be because I had a c-section with my first, so the scar tissue is causing more cramps (or something to that effect)... but most of the time, cramping is normal I remember being pregnant with DS and terrified period was coming cos of all the cramps!

Okay, thanks everyone. I feel better knowing that I am not alone. It's just funny to feel that because it makes me think AF!

Well, I'm the opposite. I haven't been felling cramps/twinges, so I'm worried. I had cramping/twinges with DD1 and DD2, but barely anything this time.
