Mild cramping at 4dp5dt FET :( stressing me out !!

I've started very mild cramping since last night only slight, in only 4dp5dt I'm not ready for it to all be over yet ! I have 0 other symptoms apart from feeling tired a lot ! No sore boobies, no food aversion or smells etc ?! I just want to know what's going on with my body! My period is due in 3-4 days but obviously the medication should take over ! I'm so worried il start bleeding !

Mild cramping is totally normal! Prolonged pain or extreme pain is not, but if it comes and goes and you can cope with it, everything is likely A-OK. There is a lot going on in there and most ladies do experience cramping at some point in the 2ww. Try not to stress, although I know it is very tough! Xxx

Thank you ! I had mild cramping 1dpt but It only last about an hour... then there's been nothing for a few days ! Last night I felt it and woke up this morning and it's still there... I feel like if my body is trying to prepare for AF but the medication is fighting it off ! I think it's a little bit too late for implantation cramps ! I'm just hoping it's my uterus adjusting for a new arrival ! This process has made me crazy 🙃

Oh my goodness...I'm 5dp5dt and I'm going crazy today! I've had mild cramps too but I'm not on medication! I spotted a little on Friday but got a bfn this morning! Trying to stay hopeful and hope it's just too early! It's madness what this wait does to you isn't it?! X

Aw could have been way to early for a test ! It's good that your spotting hasn't progressed either !! I'm not going to test early this time ! Last time I tested early I ended up so upset for the rest of the two weeks and my partner got annoyed with me for testing early ! Trying to hang in there but it's so hard !! Got everything crossed for you xxxx

Ahh my husband was cross with me too last time and tried to convince me not to this time but it's just so hard isn't it! You're doing awesome! I have everything crossed for you too!! X

Hi Hun. I think that cramping now is actually a positive sign as implantation can take place from 3dp5dt. I read this in one of my books. Let's keep our fingers crossed that this is what is happening. x

I think that does sound really positive. Hopefully bean has made themselves at home and are snuggling down for a nap after all that hard work. x

I've had nothing with boobs at all and am at 17 weeks. They seem just normal. No implantation bleed or twinges just those blooming af cramps. I think from memory af cramps increased in second week which led me to test early as I was absolutely sure it's over. However I think the second week is the height of craziness as all the stress piles up.

Oh and I'm still getting the cramps even now!

Yeah it's just mild cramping now, I think I'm worried because my period is technically due in 2 days ! But I know it should be prevented by the meds ! As long as I dont start spotting il be ok :) xxx

Hello, I got cramps when I started the progesterone which was a few days before egg transfer and I've continued to get them ever since. Was so glad I got them before transfer as I now know I can put them down to the lovely drugs!

Hope apart from that, you're well? I've been mainly resting, and definitely relaxing since ET last Thursday. Back to work tomorrow though and I'm dreading it...I'm almost scared to leave the house! 🙈 xxx

Yeah I'm good, I've just been feeling really tired. I think it's emotionally draining though I've been napping a lot. I've got two weeks off work luckily ! I started the progesterone shots last week I can't remember if I was cramping though I probably didn't take any notice before transfer really ! I just want these two weeks to be over ! It's the worst part xxxx
