    Ever experienced this before. At 4 DPO on 12/27 I got very strong AF like cramps. I know implantation is too early and it’d make AF 10 days early. I’m coming up on CD 21 on 12/28. Had positive OPK on CD 15(Dec 22). Felt ovulation pains on 12/23 so took it as I ovulated then. Going into 5 DPO I’m still having small on and off AF like cramps. I’ve heard this can be related to a rise in progesterone after ovulation. I don’t have a reliable way to track temperature. I normally don’t cramp until just a few days before AF. Has anyone ever experienced this and later got BFP? Or has anyone experienced this at all? Any stories or comments welcome. Even if it’s to say hi. Thanks for listening to this worry wart.

    Should read “never” not “ever”

    I sometimes get crampy around that time. I know the Fallopian tubes are contracting the move the egg down towards your uterus so that may be the pain you’re feeling?

    Hi Angel,
    I had these symptoms in November, was very hopeful it’s a sing, but then AF came..
    Sorry, it’s not the answer you hoped for :-(

    May be it’s different in you case though..

    Honestly I’m too afraid to test. Cramps have been feeling so much like AF like and last night(1/2) I sat in a hot bath(skin turned pink). Scared I’ve turned what could be a potential pregnancy to a loss

    UPDATE: I know some of you may feel like I’m journaling but just wanted to share another update. This may mean nothing but no AF symptoms except some gas and increased hunger. Cramps have basically disappeared. I’m praying that this isn’t the “calm before the storm”. Feel free to continue to chime in on any thoughts.
