I could usually tell when I was ovulating because it was a sharper pain (but not really all that painful, more like a twinge?) on one side or the other that didn't last long. I didn't feel implantation, although I had implantation bleeding so I know about when it happened. Pregnancy cramps feel more achy and all over, like period cramps to me. But I am sure that everyone is different!

BTW- The month I conceived, I didn't feel ovulation and we conceived WAY later in the month than when I thought I ovulated (I knew when we dtd, and I assumed we had already missed it that month, but nope). It was only a few days before my estimated period date! Unless you are charting, you might ovulate later or earlier in your cycle than you thought. I would advise you to get in the bedroom ASAP, in case you are ovulating!

Hopefully you get the egg this cycle!

I was wondering the same thing!! I thought I had ovulated earlier on in the month...but now im second guessing myself, been having these weird cramps on my left side (around the ovary area) feels like a pulled muscle it's driving me nuts been like this the past 3 days!!! I gave up temping and opk - just felt like they were making the whole ttc more stressful.....espically since my temps were ALL over the place ( I think it was my thermometer).
