AF like cramps after ovulation?


Has anyone else had AF like cramps after ovulation?

I am 6DPO and have had cramps since 3DPO. I've also had headaches, gas/bloating (TMI sorry) and my face has broken out. DH and I have been TTC and I really want to be pregnant. Also today I was unable to eat eggs for breakfast due to the smell. I was at a restaurant and everyone at the table had them but only I thought they smelled funny.

AF is not due till 11/2 so I know it's not because I am about to start. I never get cramps until the night before AF. Also I know I've already O'ed because I had EWCM for 3 days leading to the 19th when I had the most EWCM and was CD14 when I was supposed to O. Immediatly on the 20th my CM was dry, then 2DPO-3DPO was scant creamy white and sticky. Then yesterday, 5DPO, it there was a ton of thick globby creamy white CM (sorry TMI again). Today I have a lot as well, with once a little EWCM.

Has anyone had these symptoms had got a BFP?

My DH and I have only been TTC for a month, so I haven't payed much attention to my EWCM, but know it was there when it was supposed to when I was O.

However, I also had cramps with my O! They were worse than the AF cramps. So for me, cramps with the O are normal. I had them before I ever started BC. My mom said she could always feel O too so I guess that's where I get it. If you do have cramps with your O, that's great because it's just more reinforcement that you are ovulating!

I don't know if this helps much, but I figured I'd share.

Good luck!!! And lots of to you!!!!

Thanks! It was very mild and it was at the point i askled OH to have sex cause I wanted to see if there was any blood up there. I had a feeling it couldve meant that but I dismissed it. Is this new for you? And i got my BFP at 8 or 10dpo. probably 8. My chart said 10 but i sort of messed with my temps a bit cause I thought it was gonna say i didnt OV. so one of the two

This will be my second pregnancy. I miscarried at 14 weeks this past august. this is my first time trying through. I got pg the first time while on BC. since my first was unexpected I didn't keep track of my symptoms. All I know is one day I was tired and had bad cramping. The next day it was the same only I gagged while making chicken due to smell...DH couldnt smell it. So I took a test and got a BFP and only then noticd AF was supposed to start that day and hadn't.

Oh yeah, since 3DPO I've been bloated/gassy (sorry TMI), had headaches and my face jas broken out badly. I also have felt a little nausea tonight...especially while having sex with my hubby. Ive had a stomach ache since. Not sure if this is related but I also had bad leg cramps last night and thick globby white CM a lot the past two days.
