Early Pregnancy Cramps vs. AF Cramps...

Postby Veronica86 » Tue Feb 14, 2017 4:27 pm

Hi ladies.. For those of you who have gotten BFP's, did you feel cramps leading up to it? If so, did they feel like AF or something different?

Every time I was pregnant I never had cramps, I always get cramps before af so the absence of them made me think 'somethings up' the only discomfort I had was a heavy stretchy feeling and constant bloating but that didn't start until I was about 6 weeks. Everyone is different though so for some cramps was a sign for them so finger crossed :)

I got cramps exactly like AF was coming and the same that I used to get every month for 4years lol so I was convinced I was out...i did do IVF though so not sure if the cramping had anything to do with my body trying to get back to normal after stimulation, but I remember they were exactly like AF then all the way even after I got bfp they would come and go but kept running to bathroom to check if af was here.

I never got cramps prior to af, but I always cramp in the week leading to af when I'm pregnant! It was a sign for me for sure.

With my CP and then first pregnancy I had AF like cramps within days of ovulation (confirmed by BBT), but they were duller and accompanied by a very, very mild nausea.
I'm in cycle one of trying for the second, not temping and still BFing 2x/day... And am feeling the same way and have since CD12, which would be super early for O'ing for me (pre-pg cycles were 35-42 days with 14 day LP, post-pg have gone from 35-29 days...) - so I'm in the ksy body messing with my mind of my mind messing with my body stage!
