I have read about some women experiencing slight cramping even when they find out they are preggos and i was wondering how common that really is. I anywhere from 4 days late to maybe just a day, i'm a little irregular, but for the past 4 days i have been experiencing slight cramping on and off, it only lasts just a few seconds to a minute and i keep thinking okay this is af but then she hasn't showed up yet... so just wondering what other women have experienced. Thanks and baby dust to all!!

kleighw I experienced cramping in my pregnancy around about the time that my AF was due and also some weeks later. I was told that this is quite normally and is due to your uterus streching or something. I too kept wandering if it was my AF beginning to make an appearance or not and was on tenterhooks for 5 days until I tested. You could always try one of those early testing kits to put your kind at ease, although it may not give an accurate result at this stage. Good luck to you though.

Hi ladies ... I had implantation spotting on 9 and 10 days past ovulation, which I had never experienced ... also had very light cramping and sore b___sts. I tested at 11 DPO and got a BFP. kleighw, why don't you test?

i haven't tested yet because i am soooo sick of bfn and because my cycle is just a bit irregular i might only be a day late so i want to give af a few more days to show up, i just hate the bfn and if its too early it might just discourage me, ya know?

Hey all! Annette here. Okay, so here's the deal. As of tomorrow, I haven't had a period in 2 months. Since March 15 to be exact, Ive been testing periodically.. and they're all negative. No real symptoms I guess.. Only I can barely get myself out of bed in the morning!! Im usually an early bird.. If 8am is even early! lol. Now its 11 or 12, and I'm in school, so that's definately not a good thing. Well, I was thinking that the stress from moving had made a serious contribution, but now I'm questioning WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON!!?? I mean, come on. I read about so many people who had negative tests.. with symptoms, but me. sheesh. Who knows? Oh to add, I've been reeeeally bloated. I also read about a soft uterus. I was trying to get pregnant for about a month or two, so I was trying to keep track of how it felt when I wasn't pregnant so I could notice a distinct difference, but I can't remember how it felt lol!! Someone help! Please.. xox

wow annette1207x, i don't know!! I'm sorry, i guess there might be a possiblitly that your hcg levels aren't high enough to be read yet, i know i have read about women who said they were like 4 or 5 months along till they got positives but i think that is rare, but again i don't know. have you been to a doctor yet???

hi all. kleighw, Annette1207x, some women never show up on a hpt as the hcg levels never get high enough, my doctor said about 1 in 20 women have this problem. this is a brief history about me. well I am 35 nearly 36yrs old and have coeleacs descease, I have been ttc for nearly 3yrs, I get preg on average every other month and m/c around 6 weeks, I have been preg about 9 months in 15 but no baby yet just heart ache. I have 2 sons aged 13 and 14yrs and had no problems getting and staying preg, my only problem was I NEVER showed up on a preg test until I was nearly 5months preg. I have just found out that I am 4 weeks preg and have started taking B12 vitamin and liquid iron suppliments along with my 5mg folic acid daily. I am having cramps and my b___bs ache and are bigger than normal plus I have mild discharged (sticky/creamy/watery) and have to wee almost every hour. I feel like my af is about to show up but it is a normal sign of preg, my cycle has gone from 30 days to 26 days but have found that by taking my temps each day I can tell when I am about to O and also if I am preg. I have just found out that citrus fruit could cause a m/c if you have had a m/c before plus too much caffine can do the same. good luck to all

kleighw In my first pregnancy I did have some slight brown spotting a few days before my 12 week scan. I rang the midwife who a__sured me this was quite normal and is just old blood that comes out as the uterus stretches to grow. However, when I went for the 12 week scan a few days later they could not find a heartbeat and confirmed that the baby had died at 7 weeks. There are a lot of women on these forums though who have had spotting and have gone on to have a healthy pregnancy and birth so I wouldn't really take anything as gospel. If you do have any spotting and are concerned as to what_t means I would get it checked out just for peace of mind.
