BFP 11dpo... Strange abdominal cramps?


Hiya,

So I am trying to stay calm lol I got my BFP today but I was just wondering if anyone else got strange abdominal cramps? Not like an AF cramp, more like a twinging pulling sensation? It's on the lower left side, nearly all of my cramps and twinges have been to the left side lol oddly maybe that's where bean is! But yeah, its in my lower abdomen/pelvic region, sometimes it almost feels like it's 'inside' my vagina? Also getting just random twingey or light stabby type pains in my abdomen in general.

Very odd I know, but is this anything to worry about? Had AF cramps but no AF yesterday and friday, I'm just a bit nervy being so early and due to my irregular periods I have no idea when I should be coming on! Today (28th) is the first day that I could have been due AF. Latest is 10th March.

Thanks alot.

Hey, didn't want to read and run....First, Congrats on the BFP! Second, I've only experienced AF type cramps, so I'm not sure what to say about the others you have described...sorry I wasn't much help!

I had LOTS of stretching in the very beginning. Even before I got my BFP. Now I have AF cramps.

What did yours feel like? Sort of stretching twinging or more ouch? I've heard a few things! I'm only 4wks today... actually 4+1 today considering it's now the 1st! so it's early days still x

It was all the above. I got my bfp at 8dpo, and my god did I know before I took the test what the answer would be! It felt like someone was taking my ligaments in my torso and stretching them out like a guitar string. Some times it hurt, some times it felt strange as all get out! Then I had the twinges. But it was so different than the cramps Id experienced with my miscarriages, so I was thrilled!!

I am totally weirded out... really expecting to see AF! Just the most strange feelings and goings on, plus I'm bloated wow it's bizarre!! I have noticed though that they can be worse when I'm hungry, don't know if it's the hunger pains setting it off or what! Wow this is all so new and exciting Never had this stretching feeling before with AF, and I can't even feel my cervix, it's all slowly hitting me.

I hope this one sticks so much! Congrats to you both on your BFP's btw!

You think it's weird now!! Wait till you feel your belly button being pulled!! Bahaha that freaked me right out one morning. Another thing that might happen is you limbs go numb. I fell asleep on my back with my arms up around my head, and woke up and they were both numb!! Haha. Or the crazy dreams! I have woken up a few time thinking "what is wrong with me" lol!

Wow I am so excited I am petrified of something going wrong, I'm still in the stage where I don't believe it! My longest cycle was 38 days, and I go to the docs on CD 40, if I get that far with no AF I think I might start believing it!! I've never felt anything like these twinges before, but because I'm very "wet" down there with all the CM I keep expecting to come on. No signs of my cervix though which is calming, all just very soft down there and my boobs are hurting nicely so I just need to tell the voice in my head to shut up!

Haha tell that voice to can it! That's what I did!! You will run to the bathroom many time to make sure AF hasn't reared her ugly face! I still do, to be honest I always check when I pee for blood. Lol

Congrats on you beautiful bfp!
