Cramping already...anyone know why?
Hello gals....It's Miss Paranoid here! I have a question....I dont know if I'm posting to the right board, maybe I'm not allowed in here until I "get" pg. ??? But I'm hoping some of you that are PG could relate and let me know if what I'm feeling is normal?

I think I "O" yesterday (Thurs) because I had a faint line on that funny stick! Now this morning, it was a little bit darker. DH and I had BD last night and since I got up this morning I'm feeling really REALLY crampy in the front/lower abdomin. Why? Is this bad?

I just finished my first month Of 100mg/Clomid about a week ago, could this be causing me to "feel" ovulation or something? I had 1 17mm foli on the left and 4 smaller ones on the right could that be bothering me?

Or, the worst of all questions, could it be possible that the Endo is coming back and that's what I feel? I'm making myself sick because my Doc told me we really had until March and then he couldn't guarantee that I could get or maintain a pg due to the Endo and may have to start another round of LUPRON. I DONT want to go that direction! When I'm taking the pill, supposedly the Endo stays under control. But each month that I have AF, it may get worse.

Anyone know whats happening to Freak girl? Because I'm already worried and that ovary hasn't even had a chance to complete it's job???? H E L P ???? -J

hello there. Im sorry I cant help you to much but im sure some of the other gals on here can help you with ttc (trying top concieve)

and yes you are still welcome on the board here. there are threads that are ttc many others as well trying to concieve.many on clomid also.Is there a chance your cramping could be from already being pg now?
good luck and welcome to the boards

Re: Cramping already...anyone know why?
It's very possible that you're feeling ovulation. I would cramp every month when I ovulated. It was kind of nice because I didn't need to chart my temps!
If that's the case, then it's a good thing that you bd'd last night.
I wish you the best of luck.

Re: Cramping already...anyone know why?
Thanks gals! I think your right, It must be ovulation pain! I did another O kit this morning and it was DARK red (2nd line). So, we BD again and hope for the best. I'm not taking any chances either. I've heard all the things to do and I did them all! It's been almost 2 days (good), We did the position thats supposed to be the most benificial to the uterus (sorry being so frank, but someone else may need to hear this?), and I propped my butt up with a pillow for about 1 hour! My DH is laughing at me still, but I don't care....WHAT if it actually could work this month??!! hehehehehe! I'll keep you all posted!

BD to all!! -J

Whatever it takes, girl!!!
We spent over two years ttc, including 3 rounds of Clomid, so I can relate to a certain degree.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Crazy: care to let me in on your secrets to the best position and tips for after BD to get the most chance out of falling pg.

I think my chances are slim, as I dont let the little swimmers stay inside for very long, I was told to pee after sex (sorry for being gross) to avoid a urinary tract infection.

Here's to hoping <IMG SRC="">

Re: Cramping already...anyone know why?
No Problem: Sorry for being graphic here!!

There are 2 positions which can "help" w/getting pg. The first, and probably best, is the "doggie" position with the woman on her hands/knees and the man behind. The reason for this is that the uterus is slightly tipped and "doggie" allows the spermies to follow that natural direction.....Standing on your head may work too, but I never took it to that point.

The second position, and more common, is the standard missionary position. It's best if you prop your butt with a pillow afterwards for about 1/2 hour. I know your supposed to go to the bathroom afterwards, but I'd still wait a little bit. I haven't suffered from bladder infections, but then I'm not pg--or am i??hehehehehe....

Anyway, I don't know if this works, but I'm giving it a shot this month. We shall see! Hope this helps! -J

Re: Cramping already...anyone know why?
Thanks Crazy: I might give them a whirl and hope for the best afterall what real harm can it do anyway.

I am now up to five weeks since my last visit from AF. All tests are coming out - <IMG SRC=""> I am very confused my mum thinks I should wait until at least friday and test again as she never knew until week 6 with my brother and I.

I might have to just test tomorrow i dont think i can wait much more, it driving both my bf and I crazy. I guess four days isnt very long.

Thanks again for the tips crazy.

How is everyone else doing?????????? <IMG SRC="">

Here's to hoping <IMG SRC="">
