Did anyone have any cramping just before getting their BFP? If so, what type of cramping was it?
I am currently 12 dpo and am having pretty bad cramps, mostly in my back. It feels like AF may be on her way but I can't be sure because I don't usually get back cramps this bad so I was wondering if these cramps mean that I am most likely out of the running.

I am kinda in the same boat as you this month Nicole.. I am on CD 32 and I have been having cramps the last 3 days... They don't really feel like AF cramps, and they've certainly lasted longer than my pre-AF cramps... I usually ovulate between CD 17-19, so I could be 13-15DPO... I tested and got a BFN on CD29...

Hopefully someone has the answer to whether cramps can still result in a BFP... I am curious too... and trying SOOO hard not to POAS because we weren't really trying this month, so I am just not thinking this is it for us...

The day I got my first, very faint BFP, I was having cramps (that almost felt like AF was coming) the whole day. I was 10 DPO. It is not unusual to have cramps, or even spotting, around the time AF is due (with a BFP). I think your best bet is to try to wait until you miss AF. You're more likely to get an accurate result on an HPT after you've missed her....even the "early detection" tests are MOST accurate when AF is late. However, if you are (like most of us here) a POAS-aholic, you are both far enough into your DPOs to test without being insanely early. Big smile

haha thanks Jennifer. I am resisting the urge. I just keep it in mind that I dont want to waste money on a test and use it and its BFN and then AF comes an hour later. That has happened to me before.

My cramps are getting worse, I really think AF will be here tonight or tomorrow. It hurts in my back, lower tummy and my butt...it feels like there is pressure in my butt. I'm sure that AF is coming. damn her.

I also posted this in the 2ww thread, but I figured it would catch anyone else with a similar question here:

Don't get too discouraged by feeling af type symptoms (but don't get hopes up too high either lol) I've been reading a lot lately and many many women mistake pg signs as af. I'm still keeping my fx for ya Smile
when I got pg with ds I felt absolutely nothing except for impending af... Refused to test until af was 5 days late and got my beautiful bfp (and then another 6 bfps that same weekend cuz I just couldn't believe that I was really pg!!) throughout my whole pregnancy with him I continued to have NO symptoms whatsoever, not even a hint of m/s or sore bbs. The only thing "typical" of it all was 2 days after he was born and my milk came in BIG time Big smile my bbs were never so huge lol!

I didn't think there was any possibility of me being pregnant when I got my BFP because I had cramping for several days before AF, like usual. I don't think there was anything unusual about them, but you definitely can't get discouraged when you feel them. You can't count out a BFP until AF comes in full force. Even then I've heard of women who get a "period" when they're pregnant, though it's not common.

ya my 2nd pg I had AF type cramps then the day I expected AF I started to spot which was no suprise to me, I had been expecting AF by the cramps, I told my DH "no baby this month" Why? he asked, I said cause I just started AF. Turns out it was implantation bleeding.

I starting cramping the night I got a BFP with my daughter which started freaking me out. I can't recall if I had any cramps prior to that.

Ok thanks ladies. Cramps are gone for now but when they are here, they really are here! In full force. anyways, I think I might take a test tonight. I know FMI is the best but I dont care, I'm going to try anyways. I think I have waited long enough without POAS that I've earned it. I'm going to try to find one with two tests in it so that I can test tomorrow morning. Even if it's BFP, I'll still test again in the morning just to make sure. I really am skeptical because I have never had a BFP I really just can't imagine it ever happening for me!
