Something Is Happening Or Is Wrong

Hi, I have probably just finished my fertile time. I have been having mild cramps for a week. I have heard that some women cramp when they ovulate, but I have never felt ovulation in my life. Also, (I don't know if this has anything to do with anything) I have been feeling like I am coming down with a cold that doesn't seem to be coming, and I am having an acne breakout. It is too early to feel implantation cramping, and way to early to feel a period coming. Do some women cramp after ovulation, but before a period? What could this be? Or does it sound like I ovulated early? I really doubt it's pregnancy because the timing isn't right. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi etaylor, I have had cramping every day since ovulation and I am now 12 dpo; I don't have any answers for you specifically, but I thought it might help you to know that I know what you mean! Mind you, I have PCOS, so I'm a__suming that mine is caused from that (cysts can cause pain/cramping)Because of the PCOS, my periods are anywhere from 28 to 45 days long with ovulation occurring anywhere from day 14 to day 35. The best way to know exactly what your cycles are doing is to start charting. Then you'll know exactly when you ovulated each month and after a few months, you'll have an overall pattern that might tell you a few things about whats going on in your body. This can be helpful to show your doc if you have probs, but of course in the mean time if your worried you could always check with your doctor.

I just realized my period is due next week so I think I probably miscalculated my ovulation time. Okay, this may be a stupid question, but has anyone out there ever had allergy problems when they are pregnant? I know this is spring time and allergies are on it's way, but I usually do not have problems with allergies. I really haven't been doing anything different this past week. During the past few days, I have been sneezing my head off, and my nose is stopped up. I don't know if I am pregnant or not yet, but I was just wondering if anyone ever had this as a pregnancy symptom?

I am 7 weeks along with my 3rd child. I haven't had much of an allergy problem with this one (aside from the sneezing fits week 3-5), but with my second (my son) child it was crazy! I got hives in my joints on my arms and legs, and my eyes were really swollen the whole time along with the palms of my hands being itchy...Sounds strange, but that's what happened to me....Hope this helps....On a side note, we didn't try during Feb (the month we got pregnant this time) and I didn't think we even had s_x during the week I was scheduled to ovulate...I was really confused on the timing, but I guess I screwed up on my calendar and now we are expecting on Nov. 4th....

Thanks kamivy and Pearl for your answers. I will post more I find out anything different.

I agree with kamivy about the charting. It is definately something you should consider if you have any question about O'ing and your cycles. Your first chart won't make any sense, of course, but the 2nd, 3rd, etc... will start to follow a pattern (hopefully!), and you'll be able to narrow down O time within a couple of days. Good luck!!
