Clomid and Ovulation and cramping?

I was wondering if anyone else would know if it is normal to get cramps or a crampy feeling before Oing?  I take clomid days 1-5 as prescribed by doc and I am today cd10.  But man I feel the cramps but not bad enough to make me uncomfortable.  I'm not for sure exactly when I O cause last month never got a full positive on the OPK but I do remember having the same crampy feeling for @ 2 days.  I think (guessing) I should O around the 14th or so.  Just was wondering if anyone else goes through this?

i didn't o until day 19 on clomid, but i know what you mean... i had major cramps... i didn't know  what it was until i did the opk and realized it was ovulation... since i don't ovulate, i didn't know what to expect... it was like a heavy pressure feeling for the 2 days i was ovulating..

i had pain near my right ovary.  it hurt during bd.  i asked my doctor if it could be from the clomid, that i was about to ovulate, or that i already had, and he said "all of the above" since all 3 things could have been going on.

i do know that clomid sometimes causing cramping in the second half of your cycle.

is your cramping localized or general lower abdominal pain?

Its not pain at all just kinda a pressure, bloating feeling and cramps but no pain.  Just can totally noticeable.  I can't seem to keep a full positive no matter how many times I use a OPK during different times of the day.  I have only gotten a light second line twice in one day last month but nothing this month so far.  My clcyles are usually around 28 days or so.

I had cramps for 40 days straight last time I took clomid, including through af and about the following week after af (into next cycle).  My doc said it was totally normal because the follicles are being stimulated.  This time it wasn't so bad, but I do have cramps often.

This is my third month on Clomid and I'm experiencing cramps daily since AFTER I got the positive Ovulation test.  They are so bad sometimes they wake me up at night.  While you could be pregnant, I have also discovered that I experienced a plethora of pregnancy symptoms in the week or so leading up to my period.  After speaking with my Dr. I also discovered that the clomid will actually make you start later than usual.  Here I was on day 30-31 with no period and negative results.  What a whirlwind of emotions...then I started my cycle.  At least the roller coaster was over.  Good luck!
