Ovulation and implantation cramping greenmamabecky☮ TTC since Jul 2013; 18 kids; Enfield, Connecticut 20987 posts

Describe to me what these feel like?
I had an almost positive about 18 hours ago, EWCM, and my cervix felt firm but very open.
Now I'm really really crampy on my right side and it's tender to the touch. Any ideas?
AF hasn't shown yet since I had my son so I have nothing to go by as to when I will be ovulating.

For me they felt like lighter period cramps. What are you hoping for?

Well implantation doesnt usually happen until about day 6-12(so they say) but as for ovulation I can tell because i have isolated cramping between both ovaries, i get a back ache, And my nips become tender the very next day from rise of progesterone. plus 3 days of positive opks.



Eta: the very first timr i ovulated i was 15 months pp and was very nauseous, and had vertigo. Never happened to me before and never happened again.

That's funny you say that because I've been really lightheaded/ dizzy today and it was scaring me.

I can't say I ever remember cramping during implantation, but then again, I might have thought it was early pre-period cramps that I would sometimes get. However, ovulation always felt like a dull ache (kinda like a stitch in your side?) on one side one month & the other side the next month. Kinda funny that I always felt like I knew which side was working that month :)



I hope you & hubby get your wish! :)

So...I was wrong about the almost positive lol
I had the control line and test line confused.
It was most definitely 100% positive! We BDd right afterwards but I didn't have this cramping until like I said about 18 hours later. Any ideas?

I got a positive opk yesterday around 5ish. Today I am cramping. Mostly on left side but overall I just feel crampy. Never got ewcm just really wet cm. This is my first month to ovulate after coming off pill for several years. Think my ovaries are in overdrive.

Hmmm.
Hopefully that means it's normal. This would be my first time ovulating after giving birth, so almost same circumstance as you.
Are you TTC?

Yes TTC this is our first month. I didn't think I was gonna ovulate at all. But finally got positive OPK on CD18.

Oh wait, we can be testing buddies! When are you going to test? I was going to wait until 10dpo but all my friends are telling me about positives at 6, 7, and 8dpo.
I have 5 walmart cheapies and 2 clearblue digitals

I have several internet strips. I was gonna wait 10dpo but not sure I can wait that long. Lol
If I wait 10dpo it will be May 6th. When is 10dpo for you?
