do any of you have that symptom? mine went away and i'm only just realizing this. i think its been a couple days. or maybe a week? i have something going on, but it doesnt feel like menstrual cramps. more like a strange pulling feeling.. and its throughout the day.

i'm nervous 'cause i lost my cramping symptom. which is ironic, 'cause that was the very symptom that made me think AF was going to come any second. i can't win!

I bet you'll be fine. ^.^ I haven't had any of that-but I'm still waiting to see if I am or not! But with my mom, when she was pregnant all three times, didn't have any morning sickness, and had a normal period, like a full blown period, and was 8 weeks pregnant when she found out. But I have heard the pulling feeling is very common, especially with people who didn't even get cramps (I've read up on pregnancy a LOT, with symptoms and all).

I will be so happy when mine are gone! They seem like they are all day everyday.

mine went away, it lasted about 3-4 days. I was happy it stopped, because the cramping made me so nervous!

Thank you Alethia for my siggy!

My AF-like cramping has kinda stopped, too, for the most part. Every once in awhile I feel it just a teeny bit, but it's mostly gone.
I DO have the pulling/tugging you mentioned. I think maybe it's just the uterus doing it's job.

My cramping has stopped too. I was just noticing that and was tying to figure out when it stopped. A week or so maybe.

Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!

Mine come and goes. It'll happen a few times a day but not for long. What I have noticed is a weird pulling feeling - especially when I cough or sneeze. But that's not all the time either.

The pulling sensation is probably the ligaments stretching a bit as the uterus starts to grow.

I still have the crampy feeling a bit, but not as much. I still haven't officially missed my period yet though...I'm counting down the days until Sunday. I'm tempted to ask my doctor for a beta test now just for some peace of mind, but I'm not sure she'll do it until I actually miss my period.
