Ok, this may be a stupid question . . . but does anyone know if you can FEEL the fertilized egg traveling down your fallopian tube during its 6 day or so journey?

Ummm. You can get cramps, but other than that I don't think it's possible for you to "feel" it.
Cramps are about it

I am asking because I have been feeling a little crampy and I am 3 DPO. But it also may be my VERY vivid imagination!!

Ahhhh, phantom symptoms, we all get them
But it could very well be that the cramping is the egg going to where it needs to go. It's normal and most of us feel it until AF shows, or sometimes shorter. It's nothing to worry about anyways

You can feel crampy around O, and some women can feel crampy during implantation, but I've never heard of feeling the egg move In reality, the egg, fertilized or unfertilized, is about the same size, which is a grain of sand. However, once implantation occurs, it begins multiplying in size rapidly. FX'd for you!!!

yes, I have! I thought I had a cyst growing the first time because I kept feeling these twinges that were in the same spot on one side in the fallopian area, and they were sometimes close together and sometimes hours apart for a day or two. My natural doctor uses reflexology, so he contacted the spot below my ankle on the proper side and it was def. sore to press. However, pressing dilated the blood vessels in the area which would be good for healing were it actually a cyst, so I pressed on it for a day or two, but the sore spot moved! It moved slowly towards the back of my ankle and then close to my heel and disappeared. Thats because the fallopian only wraps that far, and the egg had found the uterus. No more painful twinges either. I had missed my period so I took a pregnancy test and it was faintly positive! Now that particular pregnancy ended at 8 weeks. The one after it was only a month later, and when I felt that same twinge at work, I knew right away! Suddenly, I realized the reason I was so ravenous and irritable was that I was pregnant again! I also confirmed that with a solid test although that pregnancy ended at 11 weeks with a detached placenta. can't catch a break...mind you we weren't going at it like bunnies at all. We weren't even trying
So..it's two months later...still haven't done anything more than twice this month..

trying to be good and rest the body....and I felt the twinge yesterday....I'm just waiting because the period is only a day o
or two late! So yes it is possible! I am very petite and and very in tune with my body..hypersensitive I think, sometimes.

I know what you mean. I didn't think I could get pregnant but one day I was in that much pain where my tubes were it was unreal. I couldn't walk. Two weeks later I found out I was pregnant. Tried explaining this to my doctor the other day because I want to get tested for endometriosis and she didn't have a clue what I was on about. But yes it can happen

I get very crampy when I ovulate and it's definitely a sharp feeling for me.

I am 2DPO and the initial Ovulation cramping stopped around 24hrs ago. Today I woke with headache. Dehydrated, nausea and I can feel a pulsating cramp. Hormones are clearly doing their thing and AI am suspecting the cramps/twinges were indeed the move through the Fallopian tube...so yes, I guess you can feel it? :-). Sounds like we are in a similar stage.

Hi, so im so confused, my cycle is normally 28 days give or take a day, i messed up by taking norethistone for 2 days to give me a period free weekend holiday (period should have come on 1/9/16) so my period actually came around the 6/9/16, ovulated 11th - 17th and sex 10,11,12th, my confusion lies on 21/9/16 had a very light stringy creamy bit of blood discharge ? Could it be implantation ive had stomach cramps and pulling in my tummy so thinking my period was going to come early so been waiting for it to arrive and nothing so back to the calendar and without norethisrone would have my period around 28th, and nothing so far and cramping stopped just the odd pulling sensation, thinking its going to come the week of 3/10/16 but confused as to the 21/9/16 spotting, been run down and had a cold but don't think that would affect period time, anyone had anything similar or can offer any advice x oh and took a preg test on 27/9/16 as thought 7 days after implantation was ok lol but was negative x
