Just a general question about mittelschmerz...I don't get them every month, but this month I felt particularly crampy for an hour or so the day I was "supposed" (just period tracker website, no charting) ovulate. Generally, are you gearing up to ovulate, actually in the act of ovulating, or what? I imagine it could be different for everyone, but wondered if there is a general idea of what's going on during that pain, which was more painful than usual this time. 

Thanks!

Wikipedia says roughly midway through a cycle. I get it every month. And I can tell which ovary as well. I got it after the birth of my 4th baby. For me, it lasts a whole day.

This was an all over my lower abdomen deal, I couldn't tell which side. It actually felt exactly like the implantation cramps I had with my daughter...kind of stabby at times. I am more curious because that evening and the following evening I dtd and didn't know if it was "too late" to get pregnant or right on time. Not trying, clearly not preventing. Not much action before that for any swimmers to be waiting on an egg, so to speak. I'm not totally sure if I am in the TWW or not, since I know eggs aren't viable for very long.
