Since I'm not sure when I O'd- I don't know at how many DPO I felt this.I think I may have O'd on day 10/11. But on day 15/16 (26 day cycles)of my cycle I felt cramping. It was kinda like start of cycle cramping-but I knew it was too soon. It was enough to make me stop and sit down. It lasted for about 10 min. I thought-maybe gas--but it didn't feel like typical gas cramps.
I'm really reaching here guys for a sign. I'm trying to hold onto just a smidge of hope-even though I really think I'm not pg. I can probably test in 9 more days.
Thanks for the support!

I got a twinge and some spotting; I thought it was AF at first.

For mittelschmerz, or ovulation pain, I generally experience discomfort on one side and almost a pushing or popping sensation that is slightly painful. I felt that on my right side this month, and the u/s confirmed that is the side I O'ed on.

Around the time of implantation, I began to experience cramping. Some of it was localized, and repeatedly in the same general spot--little "pops"--mostly on the side of the ovulation. The majority of it was general crampiness though, in the area of the uterus. For me, it is similar to cramping on a light period day (minor backache, punctuated with a little bit of jabbing pain here and there). My understanding is that, although implantation can occur in many places, the best location is at the back wall of the uterus---which I would have to guess would be more difficult to feel near the surface of the abdomen.

Some women notice implantation bleeding or a dip in their basal body temperature around the time of implantation (some also get a triphasic bbt pattern thereafter). The bleeding should be more like spotting and not a period. I didn't get implantation bleeding with either pregnancy, but like most pg symptoms, including possible implantation symptoms, it can vary from woman to woman and from pregnancy to pregnancy.

If you think it is, it may be! [:)] I'm a big believer in trusting your instincts. I thought my cramping was implantation! Best of luck!!! How much longer till you can test?

I have never felt implantation... The only time I even felt "Oing" pains/cramps is when I was on Clomid...

Sending you sticky vibes!!

I didn't feel anything last time but, I have heard that some people do get a bit crampy when the egg implants itself - some people get spotting as well.

I do get crampy when I ovulate though. I just looked it up and it's called mittelchmerz... TCOYF says that it's secondary fertility sign and that it signals that ovulation is about to take place or, has just occurred. (pg. 228)

I hope that it was your little eggy attaching itself firmly!

Maybe some people can feel implantation, but I didn't feel a thing. Supposedly some people can feel ovulation too--they get a little cramping on one side.

I definitely felt implantation! It was like
a movement... I even went to the doctor and they
did an U/S. I remember the doctor telling me-
"maybe you're pregnant!"

Can you really feel implantation and if so what does it feel like and how long does it last. I think my mind is playing tricks on me again![:)]
