I’ve been reading about what to expect when you become pregnant and came across how some women “feel” implatation by either cramping and/or light bleeding. I also read that it’s less common (to feel symptoms of implantation) during first pregnancies. Did you feel implantation?

yeah i did. It actually scared me the first time that i felt it. I thought that there might have been something wrong. I had a friend suggest What to expect … and i felt better after, realizing what it was …they feel like period cramps

I voted ‘other’ because I was almost sure I was about to get my period – it felt very much the same. In retrospect it was most likely implantation.

I remember feeling it but I’m with AnamCara in that I just thought it was my upcoming period. The cramping was intense… I usually don’t have to use a heating pad but I remember being curled up on the couch whining to my husband (then just boyfriend) about how crappy periods are and how much it sucks to be a woman etc etc… 9 months later our daughter was born! lol

I was almost positive we hadn’t conceived that month because I usually get cramps before my period shows up and I got cramps the month I got pregnant, though maybe a bit more intense than usual. The one difference was when I took Ibprofen the cramps did not go away at all. That’s when I started thinking hmmmm, maybe I’m pregnant. And then when I’d had a nice relaxing weekend and was still exhausted on Monday I though hmmmm, time to take another test.
The other weird thing that I haven’t read anyone else having is a really itchy belly. My stomach itched for like a week. And I don’t ever remember having an itchy belly except for the one time I had poison ivy on it. So maybe it was coincidence or maybe just a unique symptom, I donno.

I “just knew” I was pregnant, but I didn’t have any implantation symptoms. I guess it’s different for everyone.

I didnt have any symptoms at all – no bleeding, cramping, ovary pain, etc. But I just kinda KNEW it was going to be a BFP

@ troubled– My sister-in-law had an itchy belly when she was pregnant.

Yes, I did (I’ve only had one baby). I didn’t know that I was pregnant, and because I had light cramping and light spotting I thought I was going to get my ‘monthlies’… but later on I found out that I was indeed pregnant and those feelings were implantation.

I pretty much “Just Knew” because I wasn’t having my normal PMS symptoms. After we got a BFP, I started getting some bad cramping. The OB wanted to make sure it wasn’t ectopic and it wasn’t!

Yep, I had some cramps and spotting. Felt just like it does before getting my period though.

I thought I was having period cramps, but once I tested and found out I was pregnant I realized that was implantation bleeding. It was scary because after I tested I was still cramping a bit and I thought something might be wrong.
