Hello, my name is Annie. My fiance and I just got engaged, we've been together for 3years now and he finally said that he wanted to start TTC our first. I have been waiting for ages for this! Now is my time!♥
I have a 30day cycle. My last AF was May 11th, 2013. We BD on 13,14,15,17,18,20,21,23,24,25,26,27, and 31. I woke up this morning with this AF like cramping but AF isn't due until the 10th. This cramping went on for about 10 minutes and then went away. I'm not sure what it was, has anyone else had this problem? Do you think I could be pregnant? Any advice ladies?

~Thanks♥

Thank you very much♥

I was planning to test this friday, but I'm not sure if it is too soon or not? Should I wait until af is supposed to show?

Welcome to the boards! I'm Anna, 28 and DH is 31 and we've been TTC for a relatively short time now (two months of NTNP and two of TTC).

You'll meet lots of great, supportive people here! Looking forward to getting to know you more!

Most of us test 5 days before AF is supposed to show but sometimes you can get a positive before then. Since your TTC you should look into buying HPT& OPKS in bulk online that's what a lot of us do.

The brand with the most "street cred" is First Response. A lot of women go to the First Response Early Response for their earliest testing. Some women prefer ICs (Internet cheapies). Brands like wandfo that can be purchased in bulk are an example of ICs. Some women prefer ICs because they can be purchased in combination with OPKs for very little money compared to the tests sold in stores. Good luck!

Hi Annie, I'm Ari 22 and DH is 28...we conceived our first cycle but ended up being etopic so now we are waiting for medicine to take effect and then another 3 months before we start ttc again

I hope that is a good sign for you and you get your BFP soon!
Ditto what the other girls said...the ladies on this board are awesome!

Hi Annie, I'm Jen (26) one of the co-hosts for the board. Congratulations on your engagement

Its really difficult to give an answer to your question without knowing more about your cycles, what I would echo is that ladies can sometimes can get a BFP upto 5 days before AF is due, you just have to bear in mind that a negative early on can turn into a positive! It looks like you got your bases covered with lots of BDing either way

Oh I get my ICs off Amazon too, they're good for curbing any POAS urges you might get in the 2ww!

I look forward to getting to know you better but I do hope your stay here is short and sweet!

Hi there Annie! I am Elle

Congrats on your engagement!!! I agree with the other ladies - it is hard to say with out knowing more about your cycles but that could me implantation cramping (Seems like about the right time)

I use the internet cheapies (Wondfos from Amazon) and back that up with First Response (my favorite - the blue dyes are terrible in my opinion I would completely avoid those) and agree testing up to 5 days before AF is due.

Best of luck to you!!!!

Hi Annie! Welcome to the board! I'm Shandy (26, DH 29) and we have been TTC for four cycles.

It sounds like you timed BDing pretty well so it's possible you could be pregnant but it is hard to make an inference on the information you provided. If this isn't your cycle, maybe you should think about charting? This is my first full month of doing it and I feel like I am learning a lot about my body! I also get my OPK's and HPT cheapies from Wondfo on Amazon. I like to wait on the First Response test until I am a couple of days past when AF was due.

Hope your stay is short and sweet!
