Hi Ladies,

I have a question for you all. I recently noticed a new pattern to my symptoms that I am curious about. For the past three months (the three months that I have been TTCMA and doing IUIs), I have had bad cramping around 6 or 7 DPO. This has been consistent for each of these three months and is not something that I have ever experienced before. When I say that I have cramping, I mean that I wake up with AF-like cramps in the morning and they usually last for the entire day. I don't ever get cramps that long - even with AF my cramps only last a few hours. Given that this is happening right around the normal implantation time, I am wondering if it could be related in someway.

Anyone have any experience with this? Or any theories as to what this might be?


My History
Started TTC #1 July 2009
Three IUIs - BFNs
IVF - Cycle Cancelled
Three Rounds of Mini-IVF = 5 frozen embryos
July 2011 - Single Frozen Embryo Transfer. BFP and then miscarriage
November 2011 - Single Frozen Embryo Transfer. BFP!! Aven Born on August 4, 2012

July 2014 - Got Pregnant Naturally with Twins! Miscarriage at 9 weeks.
November 2014 - Single Frozen Embryo Transfer. BFP!

I had some too!!! I'm crossing my fingers for both of us that this is a GOOD sign!

After years of trying, 2 years of fertility meds, multiple surgeries, blood draws and needle sticks, some awful pre-IVF complications, and endometriosis and PCOS,
We are done TTC. Praying for peace as we accept this...
Hoping for some comfort after our most recent (and 3rd) surgery and starting Lupron!

Hmm, do you usually have your lining checked before your IUI's? Could just be that you progesterone is peaking around that time and causing the cramps. I know when I was on a progesterone supp. I always had worse cramps, so if you are at your peak you might just be having worse cramps because of the MA meds you are on.

Otherwise, if you have very thick lining maybe something is TRYING to implant???

Who knows! I hope it's a good sign!

Yet another wonderful siggy by HeatherW.... thank you so much!!!
