Cramping or Constipated?? :/


I'm 9dpo and have had cramping for the past 2 days that felt like light AF cramps. Well today I had it too, but tonight I'm having it mixed with what feels like...gas pains, or constipation pains? The thing is, I can't tell if I'm cramping, if I'm constipated, or both. I pooped a LITTLE bit this morning and didn't yesterday , but didn't think anything of it. I feel like I need to go to the bathroom but when I go to try, nothing happens at all. I know this is TMI :/ sorry, just thought some of you might know I tested a bfn today but I'm having literally every symptom in the book. I have always thought if you had symptoms, you'd test positive.

Oh & forgot to mention, although they feel like AF cramps, I know it can't be because I chart, and have a 15 day luteal phase, which means AF isn't due for 6 days...I only cramp like 10 min before my period starts, or right after...never this early on! The only cramping I've ever had this early was light aches in my ovaries, and this is completely different.

Hmm. It might be a symptom but I don't know. Every woman and every pregnancy is different. Wish I could be of more help. Unfortunately it's too early to test. Try and relax and eat more fiber and drink more water to ease the constipation. Good luck, hun.

Thanks! I drink a lot of water so I'm really not sure why I'm constipated! Hey, if you don't mind me asking, did you take your first test at 11dpo? Which brand did you use? Thanks!

Yup! I took an FRER at 11dpo and it was really dark! If you want I can link you to my testing thread.

It's the changing hormones and increase levels of progesterone that cause constipation - water just reduces its chances of happening. It's hard to tell the difference between cramping and constipation sometimes, but i personally feel constipation a little higher, and sometimes get shooting pains accross my bully which doesn't happen with period cramps.
Great tip for constipation - every morning eat one teaspoon of brown sugar, followed by 2 glasses of freezing cold water. It will releave the constipation within a couple of hours, and some of the wind too.

Good luck and hope you have a sticky bean
