Hello, I know there are a million posts about early pregnancy signs and I know everyone is different but i figured I would throw my question in the mix to help keep my mind busy until I can test.
Since 5 or 6 dpo I have been cramping on and off. They feel like AF cramps but less consistent. I’ve had no spotting and this has been happening for about 3-4 days.
Did anyone else experience this and go on to find out they are pregnant? If you had cramps, what were they like, how long did they last and what was the final result?

@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’m trying to hold off until 12/30, which would put me at 12dpo…. I don’t have the patience to wait until I’m late either!

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!
