Just wondering if you mamas have any insight. I don't temp as my nursling gives me crazy charts, but I always feel ovulation (and it correlates with CM, CP etc). I am wondering if you temping mamas think O pains happen before O, after O or at the exact same time? Thanks in advance! :

I had pre o pain for up to 5 days before O then the actual O pain which felt different and then up to 3-5 days after O. So I learned through charting to tell the differnce but it was pretty obvious to me exactly when the egg poped if I was really paying attention.

I wanted to add that my O pain is sharp stabs pre O then a really sharp stab when the egg releases, then back to milder stabs after. I am not crampy or achy just the stabs like being poked with a needle.

I can usually tell almost exactly when the egg "pops". I usually get a tightness around the pelvic area for a couple of days, a sharper almost pain in the area of the ovary and then just a dull tightness again.

I would say ovulation pain isn't a one time thing, that is evolves over about a week or so.

Studies have shown that women are equally likely to have O pain before, during, or after ovulation.

Not surprisingly, most women believe their O pain happens right at O.

Mine always happens on the day of O though.

Hey, thanks for the thread link, texaspeach. Very helpful.

I usually feel it after a few days of EWCM, it lasts 2-3 hours, goes away suddenly and the next day my CM changes. So maybe for me it's on O day? I mean, I feel crampy/full for a few days, but what I call "mittelschmerz" is that more intense, shorter-lived pain.
