Cramping on day 6 and 7 post 5 day transfer - anyone have this and get a BFP?

So after having no signs or symptoms this round so far, mild off and on cramping started last night and I've still got it. Nothing on knicker watch. Last round I got cramps on day 8 and AF on day 9. I'm on progesterone injections instead of pessaries this time specifically because of what happened last time but now I'm worried it might be happening again. I've been pretty calm and positive up until now - has anyone else had cramping this late and got a BFP? It seems to late to be implantation? X

Hi scarlet, I did! I had cramping from about then (and still do on and off) and they also think the red bleed I had at 9dp5dt was implantation. I thought that would be too late but the clinic don’t seem to think so. Try to remain hopeful although I know that’s so hard, especially with your previous experience. I did a few visualisations/ fertility hypnosis to try and visualise success whenever I felt worried.. worth a try maybe? YouTube/Spotify. Sending positive vibes lovely xxx

No problem at all, it sounds really positive so far chick. Remember not to panic too much if you find blood too as it could just as much be implantation if it follows cramps. Keep doing what your doing. I’m wishing for a bfp for you 😘 xx

I got cramping around that stage with my first bfp and a little spotting. With my second bfp I didn’t really get it until the day before otd. However it’s worth bearing in mind that progesterone can cause similar effects.. Either way, it doesn’t mean af is on the way xx

I had lots of wee cramps and niggles before my last 2ww and I got to 9wks!! After speaking to friends at the time who have rather a few kids, they said it’s fairly normal and to relax!! It’s supposed to be your uterus changing and making room for baby and baby getting snuggled in!! Hope all is well hunny 💕 xx
