Tell me about your implantation cramping

Yesterday I was 6dpo and had a dull ache in my lower abdomen all day long. I'd equate the feeling to how I usually feel the day AF shows up. Has anyone experienced something similar?? The crazy TTCer in me wants to believe it was implantation cramping Here's my chart for your reference. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/doxielove

So, tell me about YOUR implantation cramping (if you felt something!)

    I had definitely implantation cramping about a week after O. It felt like somewhat mild menstrual cramps, only they were much lower down that normal, like practically in my crotch (TMI?) It went on for maybe 2 days, and I was sure I was pregnant, since I'd never felt that before at that point in my cycle. And... 5 days later, BFP. Pretty much everything else felt the same. Good luck!

    I had cramping starting at 5DPO. At first it felt more like a cross between cramps and ovulation pain - it seemed to be more in the area of the ovary that had ovulated. Over the course of 3 days (5, 6 and 7 DPO) it was intermittent and slowly evolved to feeling more like a menstrual cramp, and more often at night. At 7DPO I was trying to sleep and so uncomfortable that I started googling implantation cramps and was pretty sure that's what I had.

    At 10DPO a faint positive showed up on an FRER :-).

    At 6dpo, I had an O like cramp on my right side... pretty sure it was implantation! It was on and off all day long.

    Your chart looks pretty good!! I had a major twinge 7DPO that woke me up from a dead sleep. Then for the test of that day I had some twingey cramping on the same side. It stuck around for the next week until my BFP! Good luck!

    @ms.janedoe: lol that's ok! Nothing is a perfectly acceptable answer

    Thanks ladies for your input - any other takers?

    I had twinges of pain on my right side only on days 5-6 post ovulation. They were random and would come and go. Got my BFP 10 DPO!

    Just very mild cramping, but I had what I think was lots of implantation spotting (it coincided with a temp dip) at 7dpo. Brown and goopy. Sorry if TMI!! lol

    Yep, light cramps just like I would feel right before I would start AF maybe 6-7 days after I ovulated. It was notable and made me very suspicious I was pregnant since I had never felt that way except right before my period, but it wasn't as strong as the cramps I usually had before my period. I'd definitely be suspicous! Hope you get your BFP!

    @fussygal: I'm TRYING to hold out until Sunday...but I may start Saturday...or tomorrow :-\ lol. I just picked up some FRERs, so I'm armed and ready!!

    @char54: It's never TMI when it comes to TTC

    @Amelieisme: This is exactly what I was trying to articulate is happening to me! Thanks for your input!!

    I had a horrible pain in my middle back, it lasted maybe 2ish hours? It was like nothing I had felt before. I just KNEW it was implantation, and 2 1/2 days later, I got a +ve! (it was negative that morning)

    @doxielove: your chart is looking great! Are you taking anything to lengthen your LP? 9 days is pretty short...

    Your chart looks REALLY good! I'm thinking this has a really good chance. And my implantation cramps felt like period cramps, except for lower and more centered than normal. Crossing my fingers for you!

    I had cramping that was very similar to menstrual cramps (I wasn't TTC, so I didn't know what they were at the time, or how long after I ovulated). I then had mild implantation spotting for five days that also was accompanied by mild cramps that also included some sharp jabbing pains on the right side where I think my ovary would be. The spotting was extremely light though, nothing that could compare to a period. This all happened at the exact time I was supposed to start my period, so I wasn't sure at first.

    I forgot to update!! AF showed, so what I was experiencing definitely was NOT implantation, ha! I still appreciate all the input, though !

    I've had implantation cramping both pregnancies. Both were around 7-8dpo and it was a strong pinching/pulling sensation that lasted a few hours. Really felt like something was burrowing in there that's what tipped me off that something might be up.

    @doxielove: UGH, I had the exact same thing happen to me last month. Spotting for a full week right before AF showed up. Had all the pre PMS signs so it was so confusing.

    I'm experiencing this again this month. I have no idea what's up. I'm spotting (been about 3 -4 days). I have a feeling I'm just going to keep spotting right up until AF. =(

    So discouraging.

    I had some pretty bad cramping about 6 days ago, and wondered if it may be implantation. I have had nothing but BFNs on Wondfo tests though so far so I'm thinking not. I thought AF was coming way early (still not due for 5 days). Any of you that have recently had cramping ever come up with a BFP yet?

    @doxielove: @CWhite: Good morning everyone. I am new to this post. I just had the same feelings myself. I have two kids at home. I just had a miscarriage 12/8/14 and got my period 1/5/15. I am very aware of when I ovulate because I feel the shocks on one side of my ovaries. This time it was completely different. It started on my left side which was quite painful then went to my lower abdomen. Some time after I felt my right side then my lower aabdomen again. It's subsided since then but that area feels very weird. Could that mean two eggs dropped or is that my body being out of wack due to the MC?
