Early pregnancy symptoms and testing.

So I've been getting these awful cramps on and off for the past week. Someone told me sometimes you get pain when you ovulate (forget the medical term for it) and I do recall getting a lot of cramping between periods. Anyways, I also recall getting some very bad cramping when I was pregnant with my first...

Anyways, the cramping is usually during implantation, right? I'm trying to figure out if it is too early to test. I want to rule out pregnancy before I go to the doctor. Afraid I will look like an idiot (there is a chance I could be, though not a good one). So does anyone know if it is too early for testing??

Re: Early pregnancy symptoms and testing.

Yes you can get ovulation and implantation cramping but not always. And it is also normal for cramping in early pregnancy. When was your last period? How long has it been since you think you ovulated?

Re: Early pregnancy symptoms and testing.

My last period was probably a couple of months a go, maybe more. I don't get them regularly at all. Not sure about the ovulation thing. The cramping got very bad at night especially.

But I'm starting to think that it's not ovulation, because that would only last 2 days, 3 tops. Mine has been going on for a week (though has seemed to go away today).

Re: Early pregnancy symptoms and testing.

Hmmm, in that case you should probably test two weeks after you have had sex.
