    Of course I can't say for sure but, in my opinion it's a good sign. I've been cramping almost every day since my expected O (8days ago) which I'm taking as a good sign so we will see! Good luck, relax(easier said than done), and many baby wishes!

    It could be a good sign, or it could be from the Clomid.GL, I hope this is it for you!

    Both with this BFP as well as with my dd a couple of years ago, I felt the same cramping that I feel when AF is coming. For me, my pg symptoms are just like my PMS symptoms. How's that for nature's cruelty...???

    To be honest, I don't think it necessarily means a thing. I had cramping every cycle from 3dpo onward and AF showed up right on time. The month I conceived I had no cramping whatsoever leading up to my BFP. I think it is different for every woman and for every pregnancy.

    I really hope this is it for you! Keep us posted!!

    Good luck

    Good luck. I also had cramping like af was coming a few days ago on what I think would be 6dpo (Although cant be sure I o'd) I also had spotting for a couple of days around 6&7 dpo but have had no cramping or spotting since. Good luck. Fingers crossed for us and everyone else. I have done HPT's and all bfn (today is 10dpo) I cant help but get a little excited (couldnt sleep last night) but know its all gona come crashing down around me with a bfn. Good luck xxx

    I had light cramping from 6dpo and on...I had a bfp, but am most likely having another chmical pregnancy. Usually I only start getting that cramping more towards 12 or 13dpo closer to when AF is supposed to start. Hoping for you!

    Since my IUI 15 days ago, I cramped basically non-stop. Some days, stronger than others. Last Sunday, the cramps begin to feel more like AF cramps, but luckily, come Monday those crampy feelings were gone. she hasn't arrived. (and hopefully want). I am today 16dpiui and cd31. And out of the last 16 days, I've cramped 13-14 of them. My beta is Wednesday morning. Today, I am considered one day late

    jessietexCongrats on your BFP. I am also a Femara hopeful. Any symptoms? The only thing concrete is for the last 3-4 days, I have made constant trips to the bathroom, only to get there and just barely tinkle. Also, getting up in night to tinkle, which isn't me...i remain hopeful

    Leigh2005Congrats on your BFP! Another Femara hopeful. Any symptoms for you? Now, was your beta today?

    HI khopefully soon! I remember you from last month's thread and we were going through this madness together last cycle, too! I have good news to share this time, though. On 7dpo, I had mild AF type cramping and got a bfp today (11 dpo) with a digi and a non-digi test!! I'm hoping that 7dpo cramping for you is also a good sign!! Baby dust!

    that's ok girlvibrant...it's where you conceive, the baby implants, starts growing, and then just stops.....there's different reasons for why, but I don't know what mine is yet. This is my second Really bummed. With the first time I didn't know I was so it wasn't that hard. This one I believed I was pregnant for a whole week with tests getting darker...and then...it stops and they just start getting lighter. Anyway........most people go on to have healthy pregnancies. I just don't know if my body will be one of them. I go in for my second blood test to confirm what my beta levels are doing which I'm 99% sure they will drop. 22.8 is considered a pregnancy, but quite low for 17dpo.....Good luck in your ttc journey.

    Congrats on your bfp kmarisco!

    I think I also had a chemical pregnancy this month. My dr didn't call it that but I had my first beta on 8/20, my hcg was 145. Then I started bleeding and when I went back today my level dropped (they didn't tell me my hcg level and I didn't ask). It really sux...it would have been less heartbreaking if the beta just came back negative from the beginning. Good luck with your future cycles!
