So I'm kind of wondering what would cause me to have AF like cramps at 4DPO? I hope so bad this isn't some indication that my stupid tubes ARE blocked and that this cycle will lead to an HSG which will lead to a lap. I'd be so ticked off if that happened after all the good news we just got. DH says he doesn't think my tubes are blocked and when I asked why he said "because it's about time something went right for us". I'm inclined to agree. Lol. But seriously, AF like cramps today. Almost enough to make me want to lie down with the heating pad but I won't just in case I'm pregnant...sort of starting to think I'm not though.
I know it's hard to let your self feel optimistic sometimes. (((hugs))) Why can't we test at 1dpo dangit?!? Lol! With every single time I've been preggo, AF cramps are my number one symptom. Even with my CP last month. If you don't get cramps before AF (I don't) then it might be a very good sign! When is AF due?

I'm not entirely sure when AF is due since I'm on the Femara this cycle but when I was on Clomid my cycles were 31 days so I'm guessing somewhere around the 27th. I do get AF cramps and they vary between just being mild and more severe. I usually get them closer to AF though. Seems like 4DPO is kind of early to be getting them though I suppose it could just be my ovaries being sore from O'ing from both this month...I guess it could be a cyst too. Sigh. When are they going to come up with the technology that can tell you if your egg has been fertilized and if/when it's implanted? Lol.
hmmmmm maybe implantation cramping? I remember having lots of cramping with DD but i don't remember when it started. Maybe you should go onto the sept or oct boards and ask the girls there if it happened to them now that they are newly pregnant
Good Luck Honey! I hope this is it for you!!!!!!

It might just be lingering O pains. Pretty sure I O'd on Sunday cause I had an ultrasound to confirm when I would O on Friday and Sunday is when I felt the pain. It's also possible that the cramps weren't AF like cramps after all. I appear to have a bladder infection. AGAIN. TTC and trying not to move too much after BD'ing is making me have all sorts of bladder infections.
I hadn't thought about that but I'm thinking I may be trying that next cycle if this one doesn't pan out. This is the second bladder infection I've had lately and the last one also came shortly after O so I know it's from DTD so much. I've always been told I need to pee right away because I have bladder/kidney issues. Sometimes I just try to pee real fast. Lol. That doesn't work out too well though. I'll definitely try the instead cup next cycle I think. Thankfully, I noticed I had the infection coming on before it was too late and made it to the pharmacy for some AZO.
