Cramping post ovulation

I am now 4 days past ovulation, and i am experiencing cramps in my lower abdomen.  Its almost like af cramps, but not as severe.  It is very uncomfortable.  Could this be ovulation cramps, still? Or did I possibly conceive? I really do not want to get my hopes up at all. I just find it weird to cramp this early.  I did have ovulation cramps a few days ago. Those were really bad.  Could it be left over cramps?  Has anyone experienced this, and ended up being preggo?

I have the EXACT same thing!! Its been driving me nuts. I started off my cramping a couple days before ovulation (the 3rd).  I still have the cramping/lower back pain. My expected period isn't till wed (16th) and I'm hating the wait. I wish you the best :)

i'm the same way...having a/f like cramps. i've been reading that it's completely normal to have a/f like cramps in early pregnancy. i've been racing to the restroom thinking a/f is starting....and nada. lol.
