Okay so I ovulated on the 16th and we dtd and all of that but everyday since then i have had some sort of cramps and twinges. I have done few tests and obviously bfn and a doctors blood test also negative. AF is due in two days and im stil cramping. I never have this I normaly only cramp the night before af arrives. I also have sensitive breasts, headaches, and fatigue. Has anyone had these cramps and got a bfp ?

Thanks xx

I just posted something similar. I am 9dpo and not due for a week. But I have been cramping since 3dpo and I have sore boobs. I don't notice any af symptoms until the day before either. I am hoping this is a good sign for us x

Hey ladies, fx for you BFPs!

I just thought I would give you my experience....I had a MC in Dec and my following cycle was 27 days (normal for me). About a week before AF was due I had period-type cramps and ridiculously sore boobs (red hot poker stabbing, swollen, blue veins etc). I had never experienced any symptoms like this before and they were the most PG-type symptoms I have ever had so I figured it could mean I was pregnant again. Before the MC I had one day of mild cramps before AF, and never any boob related issues! Well unfortunately AF came right on time. I think in my case I had a increased level of progesterone or increase progesterone sensitivity following miscarriage - progesterone would normally give you the PMS style symptoms (and your PG symptoms as the levels would stay high if implantation occurs). This month I am having milder cramping, slightly sore boobs, headaches and spots.

As you know implantation doesn't normally occur until 9DPO so you are unlikely to experience any symptoms prior to that however many women have been able to sense conception and have experienced symptoms much earlier! Regardless, if this is to do with extra progesterone it would only help your conception chances as it would prepare your lining for implantation and reduce your risk of MC.

Everyone is different and there are so many different experiences on here anything could be a symptom! I wish you the best of luck and I hope you get your sticky bean soon smile

Thats a really interesting post Baxter.

My cramping starts about 3dpo up to when AF arrives. I basically have a downer for the entire 2ww because I know I haven't cracked it because my PMS starts so early. Are you saying though, that I shouldn't necessarily think like that because I could cramp and 3po onwards and it still end in a bfp? I'm about dpo4. Cramping started yesterday for me, so I'd love a bit of hope right now!

There are definitely people on here that have reported having cramps post ovulation and got a BFPs so it does happen! The progesterone symptoms would be independent initially and then would be maintained once implantation occurs. It could definitely go both ways so don't give up yet x

I'm 10dpo and for the last few days I've been having the feeling like I'm going to start AF.

Hi! Just thought I'd let you know my experience...I believe I ovulated on the 16th also, and had cramping pretty much since then - along with a bit of nausea, tiredness, bad skin, lots of CM and (tmi) constipation...the overwhelming symptom was cramping though. Got my BFP this morning at about 11dpo grin So yes, it's possible!!! Lots of good luck to you all xx

I have had 3 mcs and have been trying for 2 yrs and its veryfrustrating soni think thats also the reason I dont want to test sad so scary tbh. And doctor is only referring me for fertility tests now so its all a waiting game tbh xxx

mummyneedinganswers Wed 29-Jan-14 13:26:38

Does anyone know what it means if you dream of taking a hot and its positive in your dream xxx

Thanks mummy! Early days so trying to stay calm easier said than done

I had a BFN yesterday, so it can change quickly. I hope you get your BFP soon! xx
