I have had AF cramping and I am only 6 dpo and have had the cramping since yesterday. It has seemed to stop, but a few times it hurt to where I pondered taking Advil. They stopped later this afternoon to just a light achy feeling! Now tonight, I have started with heartburn and diarrhea too (sorry tmi). This is EXACTLY how I get within a day of starting AF, but I am not due for that until Thanksgiving Day! I have 26 day cycles at the most, but I thought the general rule was constipation and all that jazz..Ughh..I don't know what to think. Anyone due for AF on Thanksgiving too? Does this sound positive at all? The 2ww is KILLLERRR! (ok, I am done venting...thanks Ladies!)

maybe its implantation cramping? babydust

Do you think that's possible at this early? There was no blood or spotting at all. I would LOVE to think it is...but shouldn't there be a drop or tinge of blood? Or can you just have the cramping?

with my first I had no implantation bleeding.

 

mjvdec01 - November 14

If you are 6dpo that is right on for implantation.

Thanks Mjv, that's good to know. I am just worried. I have tried not to think about symptoms etc..but cramps are one of those symptoms that aren't in your head when they make you say "Ouch!" hehe I just have been trying for a year and I am hoping that maybe...this will be it. I have never had cramps like this during the other months that I have been ttc. I am also a little more emotional today and tired. I would swear, AF is coming a week and a few days toooo soon.

Well, I am 6 as of today, but the cramping really hit more on 5 dpo and carried over to today. I had read normally its 7-12 dpo and no sooner. Maybe its sooner because of my short cycles? I don't know. How many dpo are you?

 

Corrie - November 14

correction, I was wrong. AF is due on Nov. 21..not like that makes a difference..but either way.

I will be 11dpo tomorrow (weds. 14th) This is our 3rd month ttc, and this month I feel a little different as well. I can't really say I have a bunch of symptoms, I just feel like something might be up. I have a daughter who is 21 months and I didn't have any symptoms with her until I tested positive. I have 26-28 day cycles, so AF is due between the 15th and the 17th. I am going to try and wait until the 18th to test, but, I might not make it that long.

I wish I could test, just to get this wait over...but I won't be able to for a while. Between the annoying discharge feeling like AF is here and heartburn...Its insane! But when I used to be ttc on a regular basis, I was HOOKED on poas! So I can appreciate how hard it can be to hold out. 21 month old...Aww, how sweet! I remember when my two where that young..oh how I miss those days.

Today, I swear I woke up tired as if I haven't slept at all...and now, I have a dull, light headache that is just plain annoying! Yeah..that's fun! hehe But, I will take it if it means there may be a BFP in my future:)

Hey Corrie :) Had to pop in over here to tell you that I never had implantation bleeding with my dd. And beside the bloating the only "sign" I had was cramps way to early and they didnt really go away tell I was like 8-9 weeks prego. And Also I am due for af on the 21 also! So we can wait and go crazy together :) I am 8 dpo today, took a test and counting it is a BFN, pretty sure there is a fat evap on there. Good luck

 

Corrie - November 14

Oh YAY!! Someone I can obsess with and who is at the same point as me!!! hehe I won't test until next week. I have bad luck with that. As soon as I test, AF arrives! Never Fails!! hehe I think I am cursed! :)

 

mom_of_1 - November 14

I know that feeling! Testing just keeps me from stressing so much :) Of course not when I get this flipping evap lines! Makes you wonder :) I really want to find out before Thanksgiving so we could share the news at dinner! My last preg we got to tell everyone on X-mas, so this would be neat! I have been having the same achey cramps again today,still more on the left side (Think I O'd that side this month too) so who knows. Do you have a favorite test you use? I have tried so many.....Trying the $ store kind this month.

 

Corrie - November 14

Being able to announce at Thanksgiving would be awesome!! I think its really cool you were able to announce a Christmas before! What a gift! I have tried every test under the sun, but when I get ready to start my poas obsession, I think I will stick with First Response. My girlfriend has had great luck wth it. I don't have a dollar store around me, so I can't buy the cheapies...(which is a good thing, or I would test twice a day knowing me!! hehe) I have shorter cycles (26 days max) and I figure I am 6 or 7dpo. But since we are due for AF the same time, would my test show up when yours does or would it take longer?? This part confuses the Heck out of me.

Since everybody is so different it is hard to say. It really depends on when that little egg implanted and how quickly your hcg is doubling :) If those cramps on 5-6dpo where implantation (which is perfect timing)so if it takes 48-72 hrs for the hcg to double, then you should be able to begin testing soon. I would say to be say maybe Sunday at the earliest? But you are talking to a SERIOUS poas addict! So maybe even Monday to be safe for the first test then if no luck you would only have 2-3 days to wait for NO af and can test again :) Good luck! PS: ck'd my bb's after the shower and I see veins! Never seen them before today, and I am totally craving spicey foods, that is all I ate with my DD, and normally this time in my cycle all I want is chocolate?

 

Corrie - November 14

You are right, I will wait till Monday...if I can hold out that long. It seems SO far away at this moment..hehe As for the veins...That's awesome news! A very good sign to have!! Ohhh..I am so excited!! And for the spicy food...That is ALL I have been eating and craving! (Hmm..could be the cause for my sudden heartburn too..hehe)
