I remember getting AF like cramps when i was newly pregnant with DD - and im getting them again this time. It totally freaks me out because it really feels like im about to get my period at any moment. Literally i look every time i wipe.

Does anyone else get these??

Actually, yes I did. Same thing, I'd look after I'd wipe. In fact one morning I woke up with cramps and when I did wipe there was about a palm size amount of blood on the toilet paper. Of course I freaked and thought it was over, I called the doctor, they did an HCG and an ultrasound and everything looked great. So hang in there, it may just be the baby still implanting. For me it was about 3 weeks after ovulation . . . . you'd think a little late for that but doc said totaly possible and normal. And now I'm battling awful morning sickness . . . good luck to you . . .

Yes, my uterus is definitely working. I have lower back pain, cramps and stretching/pulling pains.

Me too!
I have cramping that's like pms cramps, and sometimes sharper pains. At first I was worried that was a sign of an ectopic, but it switches sides so I think it's just ligiments stretching. Today I also had some minor back pains, but not really low down. I'm not sure if that's related or just a coincidence.

The cramping scares me too, but if it stops, so does that I'm sure I'll regret this, but I almost wish I was experiencing some morning sickness as it would be reassuring!

Aren't you still before AF is due? I got my BFP at 12dpo, and at around 14-15dpo I got some mad cramps like AF was trying her hardest to arrive. Never did though. Lots of stuff going on in there right now, the bean is still fully implanting at this point!

Oh yes. I had them the past week. It's like gas pains shooting through the lower regions and up the middle there. Youch! And the sides of the hips. At least they are dull. About three days ago I was getting tiny bits of brown mucus on my underwear and if I wiped there, but it has gone away now. I had it early with my first pregnancy too. Dr. told me to worry if the blood is red and if the cramps gets severe.

I'm having lots of cramping today which is starting to worry me a bit. I have 3 kids and 3 m/cs so I've been down both roads. Ahhh, the joys and worries of early pregnancy.
