Don't like what you see on this chart?

Is cramping during the Luteal phase normal? I usually cramp during O and of course right before and during AF. Has anyone else experienced this? I am not saying I think I a preggo I just thought this is strange and if any other women have exp. it either way? i have been exp. them since 1dpo and they haven't went away. They feel similar to O cramps.

I get them every month...almost my whole luteal phase, some days more intense than others...I've read that this means your uterus is stretching and preparing for a baby and it also means that the egg didn't implant and your body is working to expel it. So no help there! It's not big deal and you wouldn't really know one way or the other...

It always happens to me... I'm always thinking oh no here she comes agaain! have never heard that this COULD mean your uterus is stretching and preparing for a baby!!!! to me it uasaully makes me feel like it means that the egg didn't implant and body is working to expel it... never been pg ..so no help either..although I might now feel more relaxed and try to be op..

It usually doesnt happen to me, however the last couple days I've felt a little twinge here and there, but only on my right side, which is odd...

Logically I cant really see how it could mean your uterus is preparing for a baby or that the baby didnt implant... uterine stretching in preperation for baby downt happen till a little later (well after you already know your preggo) and if the egg was fertilized but didnt implant how would your body even know? Its the implantation that triggers specific hormones to be released, that tells your body you're pregnant (like hCG, which pops up in urine)... I know that doesnt really help much, sorry...

I hope it means something good for you though!!!!!

Ordinarily, cramps after ovulation are contractions produced by the uterus, in preparation of menstruation. In a normal month, a woman's reproductive cycle goes through the process of releasing an egg from either or sometimes both ovaries, at which point if a woman has sexual intercourse, it may result in the egg's fertilization. The lining of the uterus thickens in preparation of implantation. If no pregnancy results, then the lining begins to deteriorate, eventually shedding as menstruation. If pregnancy does occur, the fertilized egg attaches to the uterus. It is during the time in between fertilization when the uterus contracts. During early pregnancy, the uterus will first contract in attempts to dispel the embryo, and then produce growing pains while it extends to make room for the embryo, and cramp-like sensations are felt. In the case of a non-pregnant cycle, after ovulation occurs, the uterine lining is ready to be expelled, resulting in cramps.

I also get them every month after O! No particular spot,both sides and even low and high in my pelvic all the way up to AF.Everyone is different but i can say throughout all of my pregnancies my pregnant symptoms were no different from AF symptoms so i never test until AF is late.

In my cycles prior to getting pregnant, I NEVER got cramps before my period. IF I got them at all, it was in the hour or so before it started.

When I got pregnant a few months ago, I started to get cramps at night when I was about 10 or 11 DPO. They'd last about 5 minutes or so, and then pass. This happened a few nights in a row, always waking me from my sleep (I'm a light sleeper so it doesn't take much...) Then, on 14DPO, I tested and was (and still am) pregnant. So, you certainly can have period-like cramps in early pregnancy. For me, it was a sign that something was different because I never got them that early on. Hope you get some great news soon!!!!

I was also like hoping1, I only get ovulation cramps and cramps when AF arrives. When I got pregnant my cramps started at 2dpo, and I felt twinges and pulls. Another sign was how hot and sweaty I got at night! But everyone's different and not everyone has the same symptoms, good luck!

cinluu- that gives me a little hope. I am 6dpo and I have had a little twinge here and there for a few days now, also Ive noticed Ive been waking up and tossing and turning from being soooo hot between 3am and 5am for the last few nights. I hope this is a good sign this is my month. ****Sticky baby dust to us all****

hi bzy, I say those are great signs, I hope this is your month!! keep us updated...oh and btw I am a good sleeper, but ever since I got pregnant I have not slept a proper night!! I wake up at all sorts of weird times at night, it's like your body/mind is preparing you for those late night feeds :) hehe
