The other night, 8DPO, I was laying back in the recliner watching tv and I suddenly got a weird sensation all over my skin.  And I thought, this feels familiar.  OMG, it's what it feels like when I have a braxton hicks contraction.  Then I noticed that I could feel a slight tightening feeling down there.  Is this even possible?  Has anyone else experienced this?  I am still not testing for a few more days, but I feel like I'm actually crazy.  Making up other pregnancy symptoms seems normal, but imagining a braxton hicks contraction even seems out of the realm of possibility for my overactive imagination.

Plenty of women experience cramping as a pregnancy symptom and if you're a third timer then you might interpret this sensation as BH instead.  I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that your uterus could be irritated by implantation and contracting/cramping a bit.  If this is a sign of implantation, then you should get accurate results in about 2 days with a sensitive, pink dye, non +/- test.  Were you TTC?  Come over to the TTC forum and join the 2ww thread for support!

I actually posted in the 2WW thread this morning.  I did get a really faint positive, with cheapy test though.  And yes, we were TTC! :)
