I'm a 2ww cramper and I'm going crazy - have you had 2ww cramps? Advice please!

I've become the crazy, anxious, googling 2ww woman that I swore not to be!!!!

I'm on day 3 post day 5 ET and since yesterday evening I've been experiencing mild to medium period like cramping off and on...

My period normally starts around the 11th each month but the last one started really early on October 1st while I was taking the contraceptive pill that the clinic advised me to - so I bled for the last 7 days that I was on the pill plus a few days after but normal only bleed for about 3 days naturally. I'm worried that the pill may mean that my period is gearing up to start again around the end of October/early November and that's why I'm cramping so early. I've also read about implantation cramping so I'm sincerely hoping that's what this is. I've had no spotting so far though and never spot before a period. I guess only time will tell what way this is going to go. This is my first round and my only embryo. Finding it really hard not knowing what these cramps are 😒 but hoping it's a good sign...... if you've had 2ww cramping, how long did it last please? Xxx

It’s the worst part Sweet unfortunately I was lucky that I ended up having to test 4 days early cos I got admittedly hospital with an infection (unluckily) and I got a BFP! Try and keep yourself busy and plan some nice things xxxx

Although I didn't have a transfer I can say I experienced cramping before my bfp it was what I'd expect normal AF to feel like (iv got endo so used to bad cramps) but my days before AF are normally achy lower back. I had this cramping for 2, 3 days no blood at all. Just letting you know my experience before bfp. Stay away from Google it will drive you insane. Good luck hun πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ˜˜

I had cramps after my transfer, think I had them night of transfer and again 2 or 3 days past transfer. For me they were slightly stronger than AF cramps. It was a positive sign for me so fingers crossed they will be for you too πŸ€žπŸ€πŸ˜˜ xxx

I had on and off cramping too! Like you, it was driving me crazy and each and every time I was so nervous af was on her way. Well, I got my BFP this morning so I certainly take it as a good sign!! Good luck xxx
