Cramping And Wondering Could I Be Pregnant

Hi, I'm new to this.... so I'm sorry if I get some of the terms wrong. I have been coming to this site now for a couple of months and finally said, now it's time to ask:) My question is this, can I be pregnant if I am cramping? I think I am 8 dpo and started cramping a couple of days ago. It's been mild, but it is there. It's off an on throughout the day. I had a m/c this past October. We waited 1cycle to start trying again. AF is due next Tue and it feels like it's coming. I have Endometriosis and always get my hopes up thinking, well, maybe the cramps are from that and not AF. But, then AF shows her ugly face and we start all over. I got preggo before the 2nd cycle I tried, so I guess I keep thinking that's going to happen again? I apreciate any feedback one can give:) Also, I would like to add that this site was a lifesaver for me after my m/c. It was great to come on and hear about others experiences. It made me feel as though I was not alone. Thanks for that!

I'm no expert, that's for sure. But from reading some of the other questions and answers, many people had af-like cramping but still got their BFp. Also, there are apparently sometimes cramps a__sociated with ovulation. However, could be that you're implantation cramping? Basically think about what's normal for you and pay attention to the signs. Of course the endometriosis is an issue to be considered. Are your cycles fairly regular? I'd probably say give it a few more days and then take a test. Just remember that stress is not your body's friend but I can understand that with what you've gone through you would have more emotional difficulty with this than others like myself. I'm very sorry for what you've had to go through but glad that you found support during your difficult time. I hope things go well for you and you find yourself blessed in many ways!

Light cramps starting at implantation are not unusual. Some women say "feels like too many situps" and others "a tugging feeling". Let's wait and see if you get any other signs in the next few days - tired, peeing, wet, etc. Good luck!
