@yougotme:  I had pretty constant cramping for a few days before AF was due.  It was probably closer to 10-12 DPO though.  They weren’t like any AF cramps I’d ever had before though. More like constant pinching in my stomach.

Oh and I ended up being pregnant – 30 weeks along now!

@yougotme:  I’ve been getting cramps the last few days in bat the window you’re mentioning. I don’t usually get cramps except mildly on the first day do AF. I’m trying to not read anything into it, but Im hopeful. FX for us, haha!

I actually had quite a bit of implantation bleeding and I had menstrual-like cramps at the same time (stronger than my normal super light cramps I had gotten on BCP).  It must have started around 9 DPO and lasted 2 or 3 days.  I thought it was just menstrual cramps at the time, FWIW.

@yougotme:  I’m going to hold off until at least NYE. I’m too excited to wait until I’m late, but I give mad props to the ladies that can!

That was pretty much my only symptom before BFP…really light cramping mostly on one side or the other around 5+ DPO, then they got a lot more like AF cramps about 10 or 11DPO…so much like AF (except not as strong) that I was sure I wasn’t pregnant. I tested at 13DPO with really strong lines. 

FX for you! It could for sure be nothing, but then again…

I got cramping right before AF was due. I thought they felt just like my normal period cramps. I had actually tested a few days before and it was negative so when I felt the cramps, I just assumed AF was coming.  A few days later, I got my BFP. I don’t remember exactly how long they lasted or how many DPO they were (I got pregnant this time last year) but I do remember getting cramps

@yougotme:  I got cramping starting at 8dpo, and got my bfp at 10dpo.  I am still cramping today at 14dpo.  I think its normal if you are pregnant, but doesn’t necessarily mean you are.

I experienced major cramps 2 days before I was suppose to get my period and then the 3 days after my missed period.  I took a preg test and got the BFP!.  I think it was all implantation cramping.  I am now almost 10 weeks pregnant and have had mild ligament pain as my uterus is stretching.

I did! I think it started around 9-10 dpo. It felt just like AF cramps but worse, and in the middle of the night it would wake me up. They’d only last about 10 minutes and then I could go back to sleep. At first I thought for sure AF was coming, but after 3-4 days of cramps but no period I figured I was pregnant. I’m ten weeks now!

cramping was my biggest symptom, as well as larger, tender breasts! I usually only cramp the day before my period (and usually fairly significant cramps). I cramped on and off the week or more before my BFP – kind of like AF cramps, but kind of different. Only a few cramps in a row, here and there throughout the day. Noticable, but not really bad pregnancy cramps. I got my BFP last Friday and have still had them since. Fingers crossed for you!
