2nd PP Cycle & Cramps for 4 Day But No AF?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is this normal? Happened to anyone else? I have never had cramps more then a day before AF but now I'm on day four of fairly bad cramps and not even a ting of blood, temps still high (though it sometimes takes a day of AF for my temps to go down) and a tightly closed cervix. Is this just my body adjusting to my pp cycle or should I be checking out why I have this much discomfort? There is a chance I could be pregnant as well but I'm trying not to think about/freak out about that possibility as even though I want more babies, my health/body isn't ready to be pregnant again...

Did you for sure see a temp shift? If so, how many days if high temps have you had? If you have had more than 17 days of high temps then you may want to take a test. I know it's not how you planned things to be and it is a scary thought but if you are indeed pregnant it would be better to know sooner rather than later.

If you have not seen a temp shift the it is entirely possible that it is just normal postpartum whacky-ness. I have had irregular cycles since my periods came back eight months ago. I even had one fifty day cycle that was very similar to what you are describing. I thought I had already ovulated (I was not tempting but I was taking opk's) and af didn't show. I felt super crampy and just weird. After a few days I started to get ewcm. I took another ovulation test and it was positive again. Two weeks later AF came.

I hope you get the outcome you are looking for. Best wishes and good luck.

Hey thanks for replying :) For some reason I never got a notice that I had a reply... :( Yes I'm sure I had a temp shift in fact it went up from 36 - 36.2 to 36.4 and then up to 36.6-36.7... Went to have a blood test done and then started bleeding two days later before I got the results back... Started to wonder if it was a miscarriage due to the heavy bleeding tried to call the dr back today as I missed her calls yesterday... She wasn't in so I asked if someone could just tell me my results and she said she didn't know what they meant but that it was a 4 out of 1-5 so it was in the normal range... So I"m waiting for a dr to call me back to confirm I'm having a miscarriage as I've never had anything other then 0 other then when I was pg with my boys... :(
