For those of you who have had your bfp(congrats by the way)....did you feel, between 7-9dpo, cramps in your lower abdomen? And you know it's not af related cramps since af would not be due for another 2 1/2 weeks.....I felt this at 7, 8 & 9dpo(all in the evenings before bed)...also have not dried up...abundant creamy cm(at one point white, odorless, painless clumpy discharge that disappeared after a few days). I am now 17-18dpo. I will test either tomorrow or thursday. What are my chances?

Hi J me again - I have felt loads of cramps from about 5 days after 0 onwards - feels like AF cramps but only lasts a few seconds at a time - Also I keep getting the white stuff and as you know I am pregnant ( so weird saying that)

 

j. - February 21

Yes, I think the cramps you felt were similar to mine. They lasted a few seconds at a time and it was painful, bearable, but pretty sharp. I'm really hoping this is my month so I hope to get the bfp just like you. Thanks bex.

I had cramping the month I got pregnant, however, I also had the same cramping in a couple of other months and turned out not to be pregnant. It could be a sign, but not a guarantee. Good luck to you!

I'm confused. If you were 7-9 dpo and weren't due for AF for 2 1/2 weeks, then you'd have a 21-23 day luteal phase. Is that really what you meant or did I just read something wrong?

 

j. - February 22

Well actually no Lin. I ovulated earlier than usual. I posted and asked for an opinion on whether or not luteal phase remains the same or if af would show earlier since I o'ed earlier. The response was that I would expect af the usual day and that it would just make luteal phase longer than usual. Did someone give me the wrong information? If that isn't the case, then would that mean I should have started af by now? I am now 18dpo and cd28....

i,ve seen some charts where the lp has lasted only 14 days due to early ovulation and some where its longer . as you are now so many days past o i would advise you to take a test now and then try another in a few days if she does not rear her ugly head . good luck to you . xx

thanks gina! do you guys think my numbers add up? Lin doesn't seem to think so and now it's got me very confused.....advise, thanks.

i don,t . as long as your period has not arrived yet then you are still in the running . Do a test and if its not + then try another in a few days . I hope you get good news . let us know how you get on . I,m in the same positon as you at the moment m its stressful but also kinda exciting

j., if you've ovulated earlier than usual, then you should expect your period earlier than usual. Your luteal phase should not differ by more than a day or two max. If you're past your normal luteal phase length, then you should be ok to test. Good luck!!!

j... you should definitely test. I had the same symptoms that you're having and i am pg. Tndr... have you tested yet? I also had the pain when I bent over at first. I dont have it now though, but i was just really sore at first and even walking up the stairs made my cramps worse. let us know how everything goes.
