Okay, so i had heard of implantation bleeding, but not implantation cramping, but yesterday, at 4/5 dpo, i had what were unmistakebly menstrual cramps...not for very long, but again, it is a very unique sensation, and it was there.
I looked, and it says IC is likely to be felt at 8-10 dpo...but last pregnancy, i had a ++ test at 8 dpo, so i had implanteds on day 5 or so.....so i don't think it would be too early for me, although it is earlier than average, you know?
Anyone have any experiences with implantation cramping?

When I was about 7 days pg with my daughter, I was sitting in the movies and I had the most painful, strong cramp in my uterus. It lasted only a few minutes, but it was memorable.

I believe that must have been implantation cramping.

Good luck!! Hope you're pg, if that's what you want!

I had implantation cramping and spotting with my second. I believe it was about 4 dpo. It only lasted maybe 1 hour. And the spotting was so very light. I knew it wasn't my period, because it was way too early for that. So, I took it as a positive sign.

Good luck to you.

Yeah, you may find it referred to as 'burrowing' in your reading as well.

It can happen both before and after any spotting is noticed from the implantation. I can take several days for the future wee one to burrow deeply into the uterine wall and sometimes mamas feel that as cramping.

I felt it quite distinctly with this pregnancy, but thought it was early menstrual cramps...but then at 11DPO I had a positive test and an answer for all my weird symtoms.

I had implantation cramping at 5dpo...and my breastmilk supply took a hit within 24 hours and has been low ever since. Yes, it happens that early.

Yep I had implantation cramping with both of my PG's. I thought they were menstrual cramps but they weren't and were much stronger!

I had implantation cramping too, but I also thought it was early menstrual cramping. I didn't even think to take a HPT until I was 18DPO because of the cramps, I seriously thought my period was just around the bend... I guess the bend is ALOT longer than I'd thought
