    Default AF or Implantation cramps??

    Okay let me break it down for you..I am CD26. I went for an ultrasound on CD16 which showed I had ovulated already..so Im going to guess that I ovulated CD14/15..which puts us right in the chances that we conceived due to all the BDing we did the week leading up to the scan. On Friday (CD24) I got a shooting stabby pain across my lower abdomen and since then have been cramping on and off throughout the day. It feels like mild period cramps..its not painful as such but I notice that its there iykwim. I dont know when AF is due because my cycles are all over the place but Im going to take a stab in the dark and guess that Im maybe 10-11DPO although I cant be sure.

    Does anyone else get AF type cramps before she arrives? Ive never been pregnant so I dont know what implantation cramps feel like or how long they last for so I cant compare. Does implantation cramping feel like mild AF cramping??

    Good question Starflame... I get mild AF cramps not painful but like you said you know they are there and stabby pains every now and then about 3 days before AF arrives.

    I too haven't been pregnant and am unsure what implantation pains feel like, so I'd like to know too.

    Fx you are UTD! x

    Yes implantation cramping feels like mild AF cramping, i also got shooting pains from my side that went around to my front and also stretching and tugging feelings bit hard to explain but they don't hurt it's just mild cramping hope that helps

    I had implantation cramping with DS and it felt EXACTLY like period pain . Maybe varying in intensity a little but definitely like af cramping.

    To be honest it sounds like there might be a little sticky bubby in there. You should show up on a test by now. I have all my fingers and toes crossed for you

    My implantation cramps with this bubba were just like af cramps and at 9 and 10dpo. I thought it was af coming as well!
    For me if it is af I always start bleeding the day of or day after the cramps start.
    Fingers crossed for you, sounds promising!

    Sounds like me this month. Bad cramping at 10dpo and thought af was arriving early. Had lots of the same sort of cm too. Got a bfn at 13dpo but af is close to 3 days late now so I will be testing again in the morning. I will be keeping my fx for you
