What Does Implantation Cramping Feel Like? (Page 3)


June 18th, 2009
Implantation cramping? Never preg. before.
I'm a bit scared here... my boyfriend came back from a month long trip helping a family member.. we had unprotected sex on the 7th... supposed to get my period on the 13th but nothing. Last night and today I'm having cramping and pressure but no where near as bad as normal period cramps. My period cramps are the ones that bring me to my knees. Also not feeling like myself - can't place my finger on it. I'm very lethargic past couple days.

Also - we did have sex before he left and the period last month only lasted one day... my uterus feels swollen kind of (inside, cant feel outside as I am overweight to begin with) and when I bend down i feel pressure on ovaries....

Advice? I'm telling him today so we can get a test ... just a bit worried though - we do NOT want a baby surprise right now Sad

Hello

I am trying to conceive and have had a weird few months. I thought I'd share it incase anyone else has experienced anything similar. 3 months ago, about 5 days after ovulation, I had really sore nipples and then my breasts got really sore. I took a pregnancy test on day 26 and it was positive. However, on day 30 my breasts stopped being sore and on day 31 I started bleeding like a period (this wasn't particularly late for a period for me). I went to A&E and they did a blood test and said I wasn't pregnant and that the egg was probably fertilised but it didn't go through with it for whatever reason. They said it wasn't a miscarriage as too early in the cycle and not enough pregnancy hormone in me to be properly pregnant.

Then the following month, we tried again and I didn't have any symptoms but I didn't get my period until day 38 (which is VERY overdue for me). Very disappointing!

This month we tried again and again I have sore breasts about 5 days after ovulation. It is now day 26 and I have mild cramping (on and off) but not as severe as period cramps. I have done pregnancy tests which are negative and guess I just have to wait and find out what is happening. It's just that my breasts are much more sore than they normally are before a period.

Sorry about the length of this email but I just wanted to put it all down incase it helps anyone else who is experiencing anything similar. I will let you know this month if I am actually pregnant or not! I guess I just have to wait but I'm not very good at that!
xx

Ovary Pregnancy and Pregnancy Cramping
1. You can not get pregnant in your ovaries. It is called an etopic pregnancy (egg gets fertilzed in the fallopean tubes) and is VERY dangerous. Surgery is needed to be performed to remove the embryo. It is very sad but unfortunately the embryo can not survive in the fallopian tubes. Women have died from this situation.

2. You can get cramps as early on as a week or so before your period. I had this exact same thing with my 1st. I thought for sure my period was coming (we were TTC with Clomid). I also had super sore nippes. I couldn't even dry off in the shower, BIG ouch! I waited 2 weeks past my period due date (lots of self control!) but alas AF never came and my 6 HPTs were positive (hey, I wanted to make sure I wasn't dreaming! : ))

We are trying for #2. My daughter is 2 and this is the first month off BCP. I think I may be pregnant already! Didn't even use Clomid. But I understand that sometimes after you have had a child, you are more fertile (and your cycle can get more regular), especially the first month off the pill. I have had all the 'normal' signs of ovulation, including sore breasts, slight light headedness,mild nausea and change in cervical position. The temperature BBT thing didn't work for us, as my temp didn't change significantly enough each month, although I was ovulating. I carry a lower temperature in the first place. This past weekend was day 13,14 and 15 (based on my last period) but I think I ovulated much earlier, which I also have read is possible. It's also confusing, as last Thursday I had some mild spotting, VERY MILD. My cervical mucus had a pink tinge when I went to the bathroom (once) but not again the next time that day. SO, either that was ovulation spotting (of I am right on schedule) or implantation spotting (if I ovulated early). Only time will tell. My period is due 8/9/09 (based on when it would be due if I was still on the pill - which kept me super regular - 28 days) I'll take a test the week of 8/10- or maybe later if I can hold out ! : )

Could I Be Preggo?? :)
Ok so i just decided to post here to see what other ppl thought about my situation until i found out for sure, so please reply and let me know what you think! Smile Ok so my last period was on July 17th 2009, I had unprotected sex on Aug. 1st (maybe past midnight) and also Aug 2nd. I havent really been experiencing pregnancy symtoms, and i dont believe i really would this early, except i have been extremely tired lately and urinating alot. Also about 4 days ago, i noticed a small amount of pinkish discharge after using the bathroom on the toilet paper, and two small droplets of brownish blood in the toilet (sorry if tmi lol) then today (Aug. 10) I;ve noticed alittle more of the pinkish blood when wiping. Do you think it is very well that i am pregnant by this? or when is a good time for me to take a pregnancy test? My period length is usually like 29 or 30 days apart. Im really leaning towards wanting to actually be pregnant and thats why im so anxious to know what you all think ! lol thanks in advance for your responses!!! Smile

Possible Symptoms? Too early to test..
I actually posted to another forum but go no response....
I've read about all the signs and symptoms of pregnancy but understand that not everyone will experience the same things. My fiance and I had unprotected sex between 7/23-7/26, and each time he came in me. My period arrived on time on 7/27. I have a regular 26-day cycle. My chart showed my fertile days as being 8/5-8/9 and ovulation for 8/10. We had unprotected sex on 8/7-8/9. Each time he pulled out, but did leak inside of me, for sure. Last week for 4 days I was pretty crampy and mildly nauseous. I've been waking up with the exact feeling that I experience when I am on my period. It is not due until 8/16. Sunday I felt my absolute worst. I know it's too early to test, but could it also be too early to experience pregnancy symptoms? Are my symptoms a potential sign of pregnancy? (we hope)

Good Luck. Yes we were going to wait until after the wedding. However, with everything I'm experiencing, it would be a pleasant surprise. We weren't advantageously trying. But if I am we'd be very happy.

Hi I need advice. I'm 42 years old I get my period every month on the 28th day. I was due to get my peiord Friday August 21st and it did not come. I had cramping and thought it would come any day but never did. I took 2 preg. test which both came out negative. Do you think that due to my age I may just be skipping a month or could I be preganant? has this happened to anyone at 40 and over?

Missed period - 42 years old - am I pregnant
Hi everyone, I need some advice I'm going crazy. My hubby and I have been ttc for 7 years. Did the infertility route and had no luck and pretty much just decided that we would leave things up to God. Well my cycle is regular (2Cool days every month. I was due to get my period last Friday Aug 21st and as of today Aug 24 still no period. This is unusual for me because I'm never late. I had cramping for the 3 days (Aug 20 - 23) and a little cramping today but still no period. I took 2 test which both came back negative. Could this be implantation or could it be my age? Any other women over 40 where something like this happened?
Please reply.. I'm so anxious.
Thanks in advance
Debbie

Debbie,

Have you seen a doctor yet? If not and you are still experiencing the same, I think you should. My husband and I have been TTC for a little over a year. Every month has been the same, cramping, high temps, back pain, sore breasts, etc. and every month, I got my period. I never had this prior to TTC - very frustrating! I am now in the same boat and due for af next Friday. I am doing whatever I can to get this off my mind but it's been hard. I wish you all the best of luck and hope we all get our wish of becoming parents very soon Smile

Ok so i had been reading some of your posts on here becasue i was expeirencing some cramping about two weeks before i was due for my period. My cycle is regular around 31 days and it was the first month me and my husband were trying to get pregnant. I read a loit about implantation bleeding but lots of medical sites say that cramping without bleeding is unlikely. I had absolutly NO BLEEDING but i had cramps like i was going to get my period about 8 days before it was due. I was still getting these cramps about two days before my period was due and i just couldn't hold out any longer so i took a test with EPT digital and i was pregnant. Now i'm about 6 weeks pregnant and I am still expierencing these cramps which my doctor says is totally normal and you should expierence them all through the pregnancy...it is just the uterus growing to accomidate the baby that is also growing. So i thought maybe this would help a little bit and give some people piece of mind who are getting implantation cramps but not bleeding. Good luck to all... BABY DUST

Hi, just wanted to reply to Mommy2Sarah comment on not being able to get pregnant in the ovaries. You CAN get pregnant in the ovaries although it is vary rare it does happen. I actually had a miscarriage in June and my doctor thought at first that I had a pregnancy in the ovary but turns out it was a blighted ovum.

implantation?
To Missjess,
you might want to go to the dr. and get tested for UTI! Its a very serious matter! I used to have them often and i had to have SURGERY finally to get it taken care of...let us know!

Also I have been experiencing the same symptoms as most of you but without bleeding...my husband just got out of the marine corps like 3 months ago and we have been ttc since! I never really tracked my ovulation or anything but i researched the symptoms and right when i saw them at the begining of this month we had sex like 3 times a day for 4 days striaght! lol and now im having cramping and a little bit of quizzyness...but its more like heartburn, i have been urinating alot for the past few days and cramping(and im a wee bit gassy)! I really hope we are pregnant! But im scared to take the test because ive already been dissappointed so many times...Ive narrowed it down to 4 things...
1.its my period trying to trick me
2.there is REALLY something wrong with me
3.its all in my head
4. I am prego!

think im going to test next week! wish me luck! BABY DUST to all in similar situations!
