Has Anyone Felt Implantation Pains

MrsW - October 2

Hello everyone! I am 21, just got married about 2 months ago. Anyway, my husband and I haven't been trying to conceive, however, I guess it may still be possible that I'm pregnant because I am not on birth control. Can someone who has been pregnant before please tell me whether or not you had implantation pains, and could you describe them at all if you did? I'm curious if that's what I'm experiencing. My cycle is longer than average...about 33 days usually, but overall pretty varied from month to month. My last cycle started Sept. 1 and now its Oct. 2 (day 32) and have been experiencing odd pains in my lower right pelvic region...kind of like ovulation pains but it is probably too late for those. I have been feeling these at random times for the past couple days, and it is obviously not a sign that my period is coming, because those cramps feel much different and only occur maybe 1/2 day to 1 day previous to my period. Can anyone help?

It's a little late for implantation pains, but what your are describing sounds like you uterus stretching. It just feels like small little twinges down really low in your uterus, that come and go and don't last too long. I don't know if this is true for everyone, but mine seems to only stretch one side at a time. I get a 'pain' either on the left or right side, never in the middle or all over at the same time. If you're pregnant, you can probably get a positive result by now. First Response is the most sensitive and reliable test on the market, and you can get a 3 pack at Walmart for around $13. You can test in the morning when your urine is most concentrated, and if you get a negative you can test again in two days. The hcg in your urine should have doubled by then if you are indeed pregnant.

Thanks, kay! Are you pregnant right now?

 

kay101 - October 2

Yes, 5 weeks 1 day. I had a lot more of the twinges when I first found out. This is my second child, so it's already a little stretched out in there lol but since this is your first, you may get them quite frequently. Let me know how your test turns out. If it's positive you'll be due in early June, just a few days after me.

congratulations! did you feel any of the other 'typical' early pregnancy signs?

 

kay101 - October 2

Not really. I noticed my b___sts got a little sore the night before I tested, more like under my armpits and around the sides. They were a little swollen too, but that usually happens around the time my period comes. My husband demanding that I was pregnant and me not believing him lol. My b___bs are a little bigger now, but still feel mostly the same. They only hurt on the sides or like if my husband lays ontop of me and smushes them.....now that really hurts lol. Last time I was pregnant, I also had mild headaches for several days, which I seem to be getting now. OH the one thing that made me think I might be is my dreams. When I'm pregnant I have really vivid, frequant, unpleasant dreams. I started getting those maybe a week before my period was due every night and still have them.

Ok, ok, I lied lol. I also have gas, I've been a bit constipated and I think it's the prenatals I'm taking this time because I've never ever had that happen in my life, and I get very bloated. Anytime I eat I swell up and look three months pregnant, so I'm already wearing my jeans unb___toned.

His MrsW and congratulations on the marriage. I am 21 and have been married for two years and I am 15 weeks pregnant. I experienced what you are describing. I have the ovulation pains, too, and I have had them off and on since I've been pregnant. It is possible that you are feeling your uterus stretch. Any other symptoms yet? I had really sore nipples. Then at 6 weeks I got the morning sickness. I also had diarrhea from early on and severe bloating like Kay. Keep us posted with what happens!!

 

MrsW - October 3

I will keep you guys posted, but just to be safe, I won't plan on even taking a pregnancy test until I'm at least a week late (according to my weird cycle). For one, I don't want to spend the money if I don't have to, and two, I'd be kinda bummed if I got a negative. Even though we aren't tyring to get pregnant, the thought that we could actually be pregnant right now is very exciting, and I would love to be pregnant. So i dont' want to psych myself out too much. I'm sure you girls know what I'm talking about :) As far as other symptoms, I dont know if i really have any. My b___sts never get sore even when i'm on my period, so maybe I'm just one of those people who won't have many of the typical symptoms. However, I'm otherwise very healthy and fairly active, so I like to convince myself that the only rational reason for me to be having weird pains at this point in my cycle is pregnancy... hehe. Isn't it interesting how we can be so good at convincing ourselves of things? grr. Anyway, i'm happy for you both!

 

MrsW - October 3

Oh, and I'm also pretty good at convincing myself that i'm getting "signs" that i'm pregnant. Like when my stats professor used pregnancy tests as an example in cla__s today, and in my seminar cla__s, the girl did her speech on in utero conditions that have effects on schizophrenia. It's like, pregnancy everywhere! lol

kay, i think if my positive i got earlier today was indeed for real, we should be about the same time.

 

kay101 - October 3

Oh my you have no idea how much more you notive pregnant women everywhere when you're wondering if you've got one in there too lol don't feel bad, we all do it. I still wonder if some of my 'symptoms' were really symptoms or not even though I am pregnant. You make huge deals out of the smallest things and it's so hard to tell.

 

ma1008 - October 3

how far would i be if my last af was aug. 29?

 

MrsW - October 3

yea, and these websites can be addicting for sure. it's like a game...am I or am I not pregnant?!? haha

 

kay101 - October 3

Ma - you would be 5 weeks today.....2 days behind me. MrsW - yes talk about addicting. This is my vice when my dh is at work and my daughter is asleep.

 

MrsW - October 3

Why is peeing on a 10 dollar stick so tempting? lol

 

kay101 - October 3

$10?! NOOOOOoooooo! You go to Walmart and buy a three pack of first response for $13, that way you don't feel so so bad when you give in to the itching temptation. When do you plan on giving in?
