Yep. I had bought pads a couple days before since I was out. I had light af cramps for about 2 weeks, some before and most after my bfp.

I as we’ll had cramps. I bout pads fully thinking af was coming… Then the cramps changed in how they felt so I then had a feeling… Plus the fatigue and tender boobs also hinted to it.

Yes! I had AF-like cramps on and off for two days. At first I was certain AF was coming – so certain I told DH we were out for the month – but after AF didn’t arrive as she usually does 12 hours after I start cramping, I decided to take a test and got a BFP 🙂

@linnylou_88:  Actually no, I didn’t.

The day before my BFP I was incredibly dizzy, running into walls and had to pull over to collect myself dizzy. My boobs were also very sore and the morning I woke up right before I got my BFP I even said to myself that my boobs were incredible full/definitely bigger. No cramping though.

Yep! I was pretty sure AF was on her way…in hindsight they weren’t EXACTLY like AF cramps, but enough that I thought I was out that month.

@linnylou_88:  I was one that didn’t have cramps or bleeding. On a Friday I got dizzy, but passed it off becuase I have very low vitamin d levels and had been experiencing that anyway. Sunday I took a test, which was negative because it was a blue dye (at least I’m sure) and then 3 days later I took a FRER because I just felt…different and I got my BFP. And then I missed my period 2 days after that 🙂

I was so sure AF was coming that instead of buying pregnancy tests at Target, I picked up a box of tampons and a bottle of wine.

@linnylou_88:  Yes, I had af cramps, though they weren’t as severe as I normally get and I had cramping until about 12-14 weeks pregnant. I hear it is very normal.
