Apparently I am completely incapable of ttc without overanalyzing! Grrr.... anyway.

So I've heard of implantation bleeding, but is there really such a thing as implantation cramping?? I experienced some light cramping over the weekend, about 7 dpo I'm estimating. It lasted about a day. I googled and sure enough there are claims of implantation cramping. I can't remember if I have had cramping this early before. I want to say I haven't, but I have the memory of a gnat so, you know...

I'm being so bad. Over analyzing symptoms, lurking in the feb ddc, counting the days impatiently. Shame on me!


As a side note, the popcorn smiley is back! Yay! Along with a bunch of other cute ones. Way to step it up JM!

Well that is promising!

I just remembered I have a years worth of charts from ttc! Duh. I checked them and FF won't let me see the detailed data anymore since my paid membership expired. That kinda sucks. But I don't remember ever marking down any early cramping on my charts, which is definitely something I would mark.

I was able to go back through my charts and I will say my cycle is much more regulated and I have a lot more fertile cm than I did before having Charlotte, and AF is a lot less painful, so that is good. Hopefully that means I can get pregnant easier this time. At least child bearing did one good thing for my body!

Also I was super fatigued and light headed the day after the cramping. I got that faint feeling when I got up too fast. I didn't think much of it until I put the two together after I posted this. (The faint feeling was a symptom for me last pregnancy.) Hopefully there is something to it! Although my body likes to play evil, evil tricks on me so I shouldn't be putting any stock in any of this.

Oh well, it is fun to obsess until I get that bfn, right??!

Obsess away but keep the humor in it so as to not become too disappointed if it doesn't work out. But of course, I am hoping this is it for you.

I had implantation cramping!! I didn't think anything of it at the time, but I did have what felt like early pre-AF cramps at 6dpo. I'm positive now that it was implantation. I hope you get to join us in the feb ddc!

It sounds like you have some promising symptoms!! When do you think you will test for the first time?

I'm sure I'll be over analyzing ever little symptom or twinge as soon as I O this month too, I think it's just in our womanly nature to do so!! I also stalk the most recent DDC, heehee!

Oh I won't test until late. I'm approximately 10ish dpo now. I'm hoping to hold out until at least Sunday. We'll see, you know what they say about good intentions. But I know if I am I won't tell dh until fathers day, which is as week after Sunday. I think it would be more torture knowing and not being able to tell dh than it would be not knowing, which gives me some motivation to hold out!

Bleh, I feel awfully normal today. I couldn't sleep, which is a pre AF thing for me, so I suppose that isn't good. And I'm getting the pre AF blues, which I always get. So who knows.

But I sure hope to join you ladies in the feb ddc!

I did a no no. I went and purchased the VIP FF membership so I could see the details on my old charts! I never had early post O cramping... Only ovulation cramping and day of AF cramping.

Then I did a bigger no no. I used the flashy new early signs estimator. You enter post O symptom(s) and it analyzes member charts and gives you a percentage of pregnant/not pregnant charts with the same symptom. Searched for an exact match of cramping at 7 dpo. It said 71.3% of charts with cramping at 7 dpo (not before or after 7 dpo) were pregnancy charts.

I shouldn't have done that. FF is so evil!!!

Oops. I read the fine print on this handy tool and it said the results are probabilities, not statistics. With a result of 71.3, I would have a 21.3% higher chance of finding my criteria on pregnant charts versus not pregnant charts. I also did cramping at 6 dpo and 8 dpo (I'm not temping so I might be a bit off on my O day) and got 77% (27% higher chance) and 83.6% (33.6% higher chance) respectively.

I need to back away from the FF tools. I've passed lame right up and am headed straight into obsessive dorkdom.

Jen maybe that's the ticket to pregnancy... purchase that extended VIP membership! What a sales pitch. Although they have enough "tools" on there to tempt anyone over to the dark obsessive side.

Oh I didn't know you could put it on hold! Darn it I had a lot of months left last time.

Well, either I've got a little cold, or... I've felt like buns since yesterday afternoon. Achey, a bit of a headache and stuffy nose. I remember this is what I felt like when I got pregnant with Charlotte. Of course, with a baby in daycare I certainly wouldn't count out a cold either! Although that would so not be cool if I had a cold. Haha! Get it? Cool, cold... Okay that was corny.

I like reading all of your updates! It's making me get so excited for my 2ww, of course once I'm in it I'll probably be cursing the time, hehe.

Oh Kat you will totally be cursing the time. It was me who just weeks ago said we would casually ttc. Does this look casual to you?! Maybe I'm just weak but I can't help myself.

Are you charting? It makes it worse I swear. I didn't even temp this time and I still can't help but sit here staring at my templess chart. Sad and pathetic isn't it? But I'm determined to not start temping this time. I will not turn into that woman chasing her husband's booty with a thermometer in one hand and pre-seed in the other (again). So not sexy!
