Cramping as an early PG symptom?

Anyone have cramping in early pregnancy? I had cramping last time, one week before AF was due, but the cramps this time are stronger and sharper. I'm not doubled over or anything, but they hurt, you know? They hurt enough to take Tylenol every day.

Oh! And I am so friggin' weak!!! I'm not supposed to test until Saturday or Sunday and I tested today!!!  Hahahahah I am such a POAS addict!!! It was negative, of course. You don't get an accurate result at 5dpo!!! At least I can laugh at myself, right?

I have had headaches everyday, my lower back is very sore at night, and my BBs are sore, but I've had all these and gotten AF. Why do PG and AF symptoms have to be so darn similar? Harrumph!

SSBD!!!!!

Hi,
I am having the same symptoms. I had an IUI on 12/20 and 12/21 after taking Bravele injectables with the HCG trigger shot, so I'm going for my blood test tomorrow (I don't POAS because it is soo depressing to see the negative that now I just feel like I gynx myself when if i do it)  I am going crazy! My BBS are VERY sore, sometime that happens during my period and sometimes not so I'm not sure. But cramping, lower back pain, headaches, all that. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a year now. This is our 4th IUI so I really need this to work or next month its IVF and it would be so great of we achieved pregnancy without having to do he IVF. When are you expecting your period?

I'm so sorry to hear how long you've been trying. That must be so frustrating and disappointing for you. Wow I really really hope you are PG this month! Have you ever had these same symptoms before? My period is due around the 13th, give or take a day. I am planning to test again on Saturday, which will be be 5 days before AF is due. I got a + HPT last time I was PG 5 days before AF was due, so I know it's possible to get an accurate result that early. I used FRER last time, but will use a Dollar Tree test this time because they are so cheap. If I get a + this time, I will confirm it with a digital test. Sadly, we lost our little boy at 20 weeks this past August.

I am sending tons of SSBD your way! Did you get it??

Anyone have itchy BBs as a PG symptom? I just gave them a good scratch. DH loved that!

You are so funny. I am a POAS addict too.  I am 5-6 days DPO and having very similar cramping. I got a BFN yesterday, but I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Hi girls!  I'm right along with you both.  Today is 7DPO for me and last night I woke up in the middle  of the night with a sharp cramp.  It actually woke me out of my sleep...I was so groggy I knew it came from either my uterus or ovary but not sure which.  I also have been peeing like crazy, bbs are sore, Oh and I'm VERY irritable!!  Dh was asking me if I'm geting af...I think it's b/c I'm complaining about cramps and I'm very moody!  My temps were up today though.  Are you guys temping?  When I was preg. last time I had cramps.  They say it's a common symptom.

Sue-  I'm sooooo sorry to hear about your little boy.  I was on here in August but I don't remember you talking about it.  I'm sorry for your loss!

Hi SueGre! The two times I got pregnant (miscarried both times), my two first signs were extra sore BBs (more so than normal) and cramping. The cramping wasn't bad, though, more like dull, deep cramping...if that makes sense :-)

Good luck!

My cramps aren't really bad just there...if that makes any sense.  I can deal with them w/out medicine.

oooo, I havn't done this temping thing.  What should happen with your temp if your are prego?

Your temps will go up after ovulation, and if it stays high for 18+ days, you're most probably pregnant!

Well they have stayed up 7 days so looks like I have a ways to go...haha.  Hopefully I will know by then.  Who am I kidding of oourse I will know by then.

LOL! I know what you mean!!! I would POAS several times before I'd ever get to 18 dpo with high temps :-)

237300_tn?1231458318
Yeah I probably will at 12DPO ...not sure though. I just don't want to see a BFN.  I guess it doesn't matter though b/c if af comes then it is a BFN.

I can relate about the cramping. I began fertility treatment last month, so I had my hCG shot on 12/24 and did the sex stuff last week. Begun the progesterone suppositories as well and will stay on those until my period starts. Hopefully it wont. But I have been wondering about my cramping as well. It's been going on for two days now and it's not hurting me all that bad, but I feel like it's a signal/warning that AF is around the corner. Hopefully it's not. Best of luck!

Cramping can also mean you're PG, so don't give up hope!
