Post subject: PERIOD PAINS
my last perios was 24 jan which is 4 weeks ago tomorrow, up until Sunday I was getting pregnancy symptoms, aching breasts, strong smell, bloated stomach.
Since Monday they have all dissapeared, now I have the typical dull ache in my stomach like as If im going to come on and have had this since yesterday.
The only thing is I didnt ovulate until the 10 th feb (sunday) and my cycle is usually 35 days.
Last cycle I came on 2 weeks 2 days after ovulation, which would probs make me due this tuesday.
I was thinking that I probs wouldnt be getting pre menstrual pains yet.
Does any one know if the cramps you get when pregnant are similar to the ones when you are just about to come on.
Thnks in advance

I there... well I've been having a weird day too.
My day of ovulation is supposed to be today but I noticed the sticky white stuff last night, so my husband and I did the deed last night and all day today I've been having weird cramps.
I've still got about 14/15 days beore my next period but this morning it felt like I was about to get my period - just the weird feeling you get in at the very start and now the cramps are getting stronger, even painfil.
I didn't think I'd have any symtoms this soon after.. maybe I just need a long soak in the bath tonight.. I don't want to get too excited about anything yet until I'm sure..
Have a lovely evening to everyone..

Thats similar to what I had the day after I ovulated and I had sex on my day of ovulation which was sunday the 10th,
The next day I was getting achy boobs and stomach cramps.
Now all the achy boobs and things seem to have gone and I just feel like I am going to come on, but would be totally early!
I read on a pregnancy website that if you take a test and its posotive to take another a couple of days later as not all pregnancies continue.
Im wondering if my egg did fertilise and It just hasnt implanted properley so I am going to get my period.
Maybe the pains are because your egg was fertilised, It sounds very similar to me.

hi there, find this wierd i too have been ovulating so me and my partner have done the deed the last 3 days. For the last 2 days i have had a pain low down and a wierd cramp on the left near my pelvic bone!
is this an actual sign of implantation?? You have got me wondering now! xx

Thats exactly the same as me,
When I ovulated on the sunday, ( that was the day the ov test was posotive), we did it that day and also the monday annd the tuesday, because im quite confused with the ov strips, it says on the instructions when it tests posotive you will ov in the next 24-36 hours.
So I thought if its up to 36 hours then the egg lives for 24 hours I will do it for the 3 days after ov just to make sure as last month I thought I perhaps didnt do it enough round ov date.
The day after ov it was the same, cramps on the left hand side near my pelvic bone the same as you, like a stitch.
Wonder if it is implantation pains or just the pain of ovulating.
It just seems strange that I have no symptoms now.

Hi Guys I am 8 weeks pregnant now and was getting pelvic period type pains from the moment of ovulation and am still having them now!! I have had 2 m/c in last 6 months so was depserate to conceive, an old friend of mine recommends a cushion under your bottom to help the swimmers reach the egg...I was told I was not as fertile as I am 40 following an abdo scan and have fallen 3 times in 6 months - try it, I am sure it works. Good luck to you Flossie xx
