I quoted it because it isnt a period but I have noticed that whenever the time comes around that i usually get AF I get crampier than normal. I did it with DS so idk why I didnt expect it with this one as well. Anyone else get this or am I just an oddity? lol

I'm not around to missing my second AF, but I don't remember being any more crampy during that first week that I knew. But, I suspect that you're probably not the only person this happens to - some women even continue to have their periods during pregnancy, so obviously something hormonal is happening there.

OH I KNOW. I have a hard enough time keeping it together through a little bit of spotting. A full on period would induce a meltdown!

It may just be that your having a growth spurt at the same time you AF would be here... Whenever I get a growth spurt I get crampy and my uterus gets sore for a few days. I can't stand those low rise belly panels touching my lower belly!

Whoa! That must have been way weird!!

I don't really experience this, either. I get crampy during different times but they aren't correlated to when AF would have arrived had she not been on vacation.
