You could’ve caught the end of your surge! every one is different! FX!!

LH surge is quick and hard to catch, it’s great that you got a positive! Ovulation ususally occurs within 24-48 hours, so the cramping could have been ovulation pains. I have no idea how long ovulation pain lasts. I don’t really notice it.

There are so many things that can cause what feels like ovulation pain, such as gas, constipation, thickening of the mucus in the cervix, the fallopian tubes prepping to do their thing, etc. So yes, it is entirely normal to have cramping for a few days around O. I read that women usually O around 24 hours after the positive. Great job identifying your O with OPKs!

I am in the exact situation as you.. That I had a positive OPK in the late afternoon with cramps, and the next afternoon I took another test and it came back negative.. and I had watery CM too, and cramps then too for two days. So I think we caught it at the end of the surge. Do you chart?

A similar thing happened to me, I had what I think were ovulation cramps, and then I tested later that afternoon and got a positive, then no more cramps and no more positives. I probably had a short surge as well. Maybe those cramps happened because I was ovulating. Hope that BD was the one for you. Good luck!
