Hey--I'm pretty sure I ovulated on Tuesday or Wednesday, making today 4 or 5 DPO. Yesterday, I had cramping in my uterus ALL day (sometimes a stronger cramp, but mostly a dull achiness) It has continued today, and has moved into my lower back too. It feels just like I'm getting ready to start my period! I've heard of women saying they felt this way right before they got a BFP, but that was later on past ovulation, closer to when they would miss their period.

What do you think? I know they say it takes about a week for the fertilized egg to get to the womb, and if that's always true, I'm too early for that. But what is with the cramping? Could my body somehow "know"?

PS--We did the BD on Sat. Mon. Tues. and Wed. so we were definitely covered as far as the swimmers were concerned!

This sounds EXACTLY like how I was feeling on 4-5dpo! I got my BFP at 8dpo. The cramping was a HUGE indicator for me, because I never cramp like that unless AF is literally coming in a few hours, and when she didn't show after three days of cramping, I was like, "Okay, I'm testing TODAY." LOL!

And I know the egg can implant sooner than a week, because of my early BFP! Once I got that BFP, I felt that it was confirmed that the cramping I felt was definitely implantation.

So I have high hopes for you! I hope this is your !!

I had this exact feeling too around the same time. However I just had two days of bleeding and my Hcg level was done on Thursday and gave me a result of 6. So basically, I think I had a chemical pregnancy. Im not saying that wont happen to you... but you really need to wait it out and not get too excited yet.

I had major cramping around 5dpo and again at 8dpo last cycle. I got my BFP at 10dpo.

I have a history of miscarriage and that pregnancy too ended that way. Now I am 6dpo again and all day yesterday I had the same cramping. I have a strong feeling I am going to see two lines again this month.

I hope you get your BFP soon! Good luck

I started cramping immediately...I noticed it with # 2 cause our first was a surprise...I didn't test til I was 2 weeks late but I had been cramping so I figured AF was coming but sure enough I was PG...so when DH and I TTC for # 2, I started cramping right away...on my right side...and I remember I was having a beer one night and I couldn't drink it...which is what made me decide to test with my son. LOL So then I tested and found out I was PG with my daughter. Next symptom was boobie pain...tingling around nipples and pain around armpits...

Thanks ladies! Today is Monday, 6 dpo, and I am still having the cramping. It went on all day Saturday, most of Sunday, and most of today. When I say cramping, I don't mean like extremely painful, but more of a dull achy cramp. Today it has been off and on, mostly down low, right above my pubic bone, in the very center of my uterus.

Now, today is 6 dpo, but mind you, this all started on Saturday, which was FOUR DPO!!! How in the stinkin world could the cramping be from implantation?! Could it possibly happen THAT early?!!!

Thanks!

I've heard a LOT of ladies getting cramping throughout the 2ww when they are pregnant. That happened with my youngest, too! So it could be a very good sign for you. I hope this means your BFP is on the way!

I know that you're not supposed to get any signs until after implantation, but I do hear a lot of ladies talking about getting pregnancy signs earlier than that so I'm not totally sure about it. I think anything that's unusual for you personally can be a good sign!

Please keep us updated on your signs!!

I've read from various sources that say that implantation occurs anywhere from 3 to 10 days after ovulation. And then there are other sources which say 5 to 12 days after ovulation. So, being that my cramping started at 4dpo, I definitely think that implantation can happen earlier than 5-6dpo. It only takes a couple days for the fertilized egg to make it to your uterus---and after that, whose to say it won't decide to start digging in right away?

Also, I wanted to add that, if you DO get your BFP this month, don't be worried if you're still cramping. I cramped all the way up to my sixth week.

It takes about 5 days for the egg to makes it travel to implant. But you can have cramping before that and cramping doesn't necessarily mean implantation. Implantation can have no cramping or have quite a bit. As far as medically we consider implantation to happen between 6-10 days. But it can take up to 12.


I hope this is your bfp!! Good luck and kup!!!

I am 3dpo today and having the same type of cramping. I don't know if it is really something or just my mind playing tricks on me because I want to be pregnant so bad.

I am 8DPO and have had cramps for the last week. They're not truly painful, just like mini menstrual cramps and they come and go all day long. I also have VERY painful boobies the last two days. The "ladies" usually get sore a few days before AF, but never this early. Finally, my face has broken out over the last week unlike anything I've ever seen! This could be it!!

I'd like to buy everyone a round of babydust!

Seems like there are quite a few of us that are having cramping this month during the 2ww! I had cramping both yesterday and the day before, which was 9-10 DPO, so not as early as you, but still in that 2ww. I hope this is it for ALLLLLL of us!

I had the same feeling 4 dpo and got a BFP 8 dpo. I just knew without a doubt at 4 dpo that this time had worked.
The cramping lasted about 2 days and then the nausea and body aches started. Good luck!!
