I usually start to feel AF coming on during week 3 of the cycle, which means after O I have lots of hope but only for one week! By the second week of the 2ww I'm losing hope, knowing that AF is on her way! I'm on a 26-28 day cycle, but AF can be felt several days before she actually shows her face, so I often know I'm not pregnant before the 2ww is even over!! Not fair! lol

AF is due on tuesday and for the last few days I've had that "AF is coming" feeling - cramps, pains in boobs, increased sensation "down below" to the point I actually feel like she's there!

Does anyone else "feel" AF several days before she actually shows?

I know pms and early pregnancy can mimic each other, that's what makes it so frustrating.

<span style="font-family:Comic Sans MS">I used to get the "AF feeling" about a week before just like you but, for some reason now I don't. It never seemed fair to me either. I hope it's not AF and you get your BFP!! GOOD LUCK!!</span>

Thanks - it's hard when you've felt the same "AF is coming" feeling for years! It's hard to mistake, so it becomes difficult to believe it's pregnancy! I only have about a week after O that I think "maybe I'm pregnant", after that it's "oh, AF is on the horizon", then it's just a matter of waiting for her to show up! I want a full 2ww, it's not fair! lol

I guess you never know though, so I do harbor teeny hopes of pregnancy, even when I think AF is coming! Until she ACTUALLY shows, it's difficult to totally give up on the month!

I have "signs" of pregnancy, but they can easily be attributed to pms as well, so the last part of the month is always a rollarcoaster of what if's! I shall just wait - my period is like clock work, so I'll know one way or another in the next day or so.

Thank you! She's a sable German Shepherd, she's now 8 months old and getting bigger by the day - that pic was taken a couple of months ago, she's grown a lot since then! My son and my GS are the best of mates - she adores him and he can do wrong in her eyes! She just lays down while he parks his toys all over her back, he even parks tiny toy cars on her nose and she just looks at him with adoring eyes! We got her when she was an 8 week old fluff ball!

Well, I will tell you I get those "AF is coming" feelings even when I am pregnant so I wouldn't let that rule you out. I really hope this is your month!

Exactly like AF? I guess there's still hope then! I wish I could recall how I felt in the early days when I was preggus with my son, but I never gave it much thought! I remember throwing up all through the pregnancy and that's about it!! Now, I'm analysing every symptom and driving myself nuts! lol

What does the "AF is coming" feeling, feel like for you?
