I'm between 5-7 DPO (I ovulated last weekend, which was crazy and I didn't temp, but I had lots of EWCM Sunday).
I promised myself I wouldn't symptom-watch this month, but I'm having *really* bad cramps that bring on a nauseous feeling. So it's not so much I'm abstaining from symptom-watching; I feel like I'm having to go out of my way to ignore these symptoms. Honestly, I feel like crap, but it could be the Santa Ana.
But I'm just wondering if anyone who's been pregnant had this really just wretched cramping. I've heard of "twinges." No, feels like AF cramps.
Early pregnancy cramps can be easily mistaken for AF cramps. Believe me...my good friend just found out this morning she is pregnant. She kept insisting she was going to get her AF, even though she was already 4 days late. I told her the cramps were her body's way of preparing for the pregnancy and making room for the fetus. Needless to say...she's pregnant just like I told her. When are you due to test? Keep your head up...I've been having AF (mild) type cramps, and other symptoms like fatigue, acne (not like me to have acne), cravings, weight gain, bigger bbs, and frequent trips to the bathroom. I'm due to test in 4 days, and I'm really hoping I get that Keep us updated! GL!
AF is due the 24th, but I'll probably test in a week or so.
They've gotten pretty bad, my legs even hurt, and I think I'm running a low-grade temp (98.8, but that's really hot for me). I'm starting to think this is more than anything pregnancy related. If they continue, I'll get an urgent care appt.
I'm seeing my chances slipping away the longer this pain lasts, and i's hard to take. I'm supposed to go out tonight and tomorrow night and have a good time, but I'm pretty bummed.
