I’ve experienced it with no luck. I know others who have experienced and ended up with BFP. Everyone’s so different, it’s hard to say if you’re out or not at this point.

Fingers crossed AF doesn’t show up!

Yes! I cramped around 4-6 DPO (which never ever happened) and got my BFP at 9 DPO! 

Good luck and baby dust!

It’s so hard to tell the difference!! I got my bfp 5 days before my period was due at 10DPO and I had cramping that same day. So I already knew it wasn’t AF cramping, but it is exactly the same feeling. Had the cramping started the day before I got my postive I would have assumed it was AF cramps!

Depending how many DPO you are, start testing.. you’re not out yet!

I had period-like cramps starting at 10 DPO and at 12 DPO, both times I was pregnant. But then, I have had cramps at various times in my cycle when I wasn’t pregnant either. Fingers crossed for you.

lorcat:  I had cramps from 10 dpo to 25 dpo. They were bad, AF like cramps, but they came with a BFP at 18 dpo so I was happy 🙂

I didn’t have any cramping when I got my BFP.  The only sign I noticed was my CM didn’t dry up…it can be an early sign of pregnancy…but from what I’ve read it’s not something you shouldn’t rely on too heavily.  I actually felt really good leading up to my BFP and had a ton of energy.  But I also don’t cramp until the evening before AF and I typically wake up to it in the morning…

I’m feeling the same way right now. I took two tests already, but realized I took them way to soon. I am very impatient. My period is due Saturday. I also have been cramping, but things feel different this time. Not sure if it’s in my head. The roller coaster emotions are killing me.

lorcat:  For me yes, HOWEVER.  It took 20 days before I got that BFP.  This was over a year ago though.

lorcat:  Good question! And one to which I don’t have an answer but I do have the same question! I’ve had period like cramps since last Friday and am due between yesterday and tomorrow.  I did test on Tuesday and got what may have been a mega squinter or a negative, not sure.

Anyway, I guess I’ll wait and see! Will comment again once I know either way!

I had cramping starting about 10 days before my period was due. I honestly thought I was just going to get my period early that month. After a couple days of cramping and no period, I decided to test and got a BFP. I belive I was 9-10 DPO.

lorcat:  keep your head high. Not everyone will be the same but I had very mild cramping a few days before my period and onto when I was supposed to get my period. I thought for sure It was coming but alas… 7 days after the first day of my missed period I got a BFP.

Any update on your end? 🙂
