    Default Bad cramps with bfp?

    Hi all, I need some major cheering up:

    I'm in the 2ww with an injects/iui cycle. I started having bad cramps last night and it's continued on/off for most of today. I'm 90% sure it's AF trying to come, and being blocked by my prog. suppositories. Does anyone have any successful bfp with cramps stories? I need hope since I'm not suppose to test until monday!

    Not to be a debbie downer, but with any medicated cycle I seem to have moderate to mild cramps for the entire 2ww. The progesterone does seem to actually help them a little. Don't get down, just pray that the little bean is burrowing in!

    I had the worst cramps of my life when I got my BFP. I was sure it was AF but I was happy about that at the time. I got an even better surprise. Hope the same is true for you!

    I had AF type cramps with my BFP too... It might have been a few days after though, I can't remember. But I definitely had cramping.

    Thanks for the input. How bad were your cramps (mine kept me up most of last night)? And how many days did you have them for? Thanks so much, I really appreciate your stories!

    I had the worst cramps ever for like a week before I got my bfp. It was awful! I thought my uterus was going to fall out. I was preparing for the AF from hell! But she never showed. I was in no way, shape or form paying attention to my cycles at that point but I think the cramps started at about 7dpo or 8dpo. If labor is worse than that I am frightened to death.

    I had bad cramps starting the day i got my BFP at 10dpiui. They were worse than my normal AF cramps and would wake me up at night and last ~ 20 minutes. I called my OB's office - they said not to worry unless the cramps were on one side and/or I had spotting. I'm in my 7th week and the cramps have gone away.

    I had the worst cramps I had ever had in my life with my BFP.
    It hurt so much that I would wake up in the middle of the night!

    I was so happy when I learned that I was pregnant though. After that I welcomed the cramping caused by all the stretching of the uterus
