Cramping since 2dpo?

Postby Doubtfulguest » Mon Apr 17, 2017 6:33 pm

Hi there, this is my first post and this is our first month TTC through AI. Got a opk+ on day 15, inseminated on day 16. I've had low grade cramps since 2dpo, including today which is 5dpo. Like weak AF cramps, I guess, mostly on the left side. Its almost like how I feel the day before AF but I'm not due until middle of next week. I do normally get mild cramps with ovulation, but rarely past 2dpo, so this is pretty atypical for me. Also getting intermittent nausea and fatigue and general feeling crappy. Today, I had a period of light-headedness/dizziness. All of this is not my normal PMS type symptoms and a lot earlier in my cycle than all that usually starts. So, I don't know... I'm of course chomping at the bit to test but holding out till Monday with an early response test if I can. But the cramping has me a little freaked... I've seen cramping like this mentioned before but not sure what if anything it means.

It could go either way, really! I have had luteal phase cramping twice in the last 6 months after a particularly strong, almost painful O. I think the stim shot can have a similar affect, which I would guess could cause some cramping.

I also experienced cramping from O until my bfp back in February (ended up miscarrying). Even 1 dpo, I told my friend that something was different. I just felt bloated and crampy and it never went away! They were tight cramps, not entirely uncomfortable.

Hopefully you get some good news soon!

Doubtful guest did you get your bfp? Just wondering because I have been cramping early, since 5dpo.

Same, I am 2dpo and had a sharp shooting pain near my uterus. I told my boyfriend and he was like "you're giving yourself phantom symptoms by overthinking it". He doesn't get how agonising the TWW is. I am symptom spotting but probably shouldn't be. I need some other symptom spotters to hang out with.

Sadly, no, not a positive last month. I'm at 4dpo in our second cycle. My doctor suspects a chemical pregnancy last month...i am yet again getting a far amount of cramping this month so who knows? Trying to be pretty zen about it, but if that was truly the case, I wouldn't be on this site lol!
