1st Trimester

I'm new here..

Hi everyone,
I'm currently trying to get pregnant but was told repeatedly in the Trying To Get Pregnant board to come here because I asked a question about implantation cramping. Boy that was a nightmare. I hope this board is a bit more laid back. lol Anyway, I am trying for baby # 3. Hope to be joining you all soon.

Re: I'm new here..

  • Good luck! I'm on number 3 and had slight cramping a week before AF was due. Haven't had any since then.

  • This is my first I had some slight cramps nothing intense around time af was do. Good luck baby dust to you.

  • Thank you! I'm hoping it's implantation cramps. It comes and goes so hopefully that's what it is! I can test on Monday and hopefully will get a BFP! :)
  • Welcome!  I can only back up what the PPs said.  I had lots of cramping last week (when my period would have been due), and since then it's waxed and waned but mostly gone away.  I tested on the very first day that my period was due, and got a positive straightaway.  Good luck to you!  :)

  • You do realize that the ladies of that board can see this too right? It's very offensive to ask if you are pregnant to ladies who are trying to but are not yet. Obviously that would not go well if you asked someone in the same position in real life so it's best to be sensitive to others anywhere you find yourself. 

    Aside from that, I did have cramping a few days leading up to expected AF and found BFP from each of those four experiences. So it could be a sign. Good luck to you.

  • I am so confused as to why it would be rude to ask that question? Some of the women on the TTGP board have children so have some previous experience and to the women who do not simply do not chime in. I read post that some of the 1st tri women put up to ask questions and if I am correct some of the women that are on the TTGP board answer the question, so is that considered rude also? No matter where someone is in the stage whether it be pregnant or TTC if you have advice we should not look at it as this person is being rude but look at it as they need help.

  • I had cramping and thought surely AF would be arriving anytime. 6 days later.. BFP! I had consitent but not too painful, mostly uncomfortable, cramping up until about 6 weeks. It seems to have quit for the most part. Welcome!!

    Ask for help, of course, but make sure to ask to the right group. This is a great place to ask ladies. Yes, some ladies on TTGP, etc. may have children but there is still a better time and place, obviously. If you go to the right board, you are more likely to get a TON of advice an help, rather just a few comments and hurting others. It's just common courtesy to be sensitive to others around you...on the bump and IRL.

  • I'm slightly confused too. TTGP has a lot to do with leading up to getting pregnant which involves signs and symptoms that some may experience before their BFP. If you don't have a BFP, you are technically still TTGP :]

    Reguardless, I had a lot of cramping leading up to and continued until about 9weeks. Praying for your BFP. GOOD LUCK!

    I understand that a lot of women on the TTGP are not pregnant but the ones who have been could of easily answered the question, she did not say she was pregnant she asked about implantation cramps a known symptom of pregnancy in some women which we probably could answer better because we are all going through this stage.  She asked the ladies actively trying because maybe one is at the same stage she is at or has been there before. IMHO I did not feel it was neccesary for her to be attacked like that, call me what you want, she handled herself well and moved on. I ask my SIL about pregnancy questions and she and my brother are trying but the reason I asked her is because she has been pregnant before and may have some insight just like some of the ladies on that board.

    I was specifically asking about implantation cramping not whether or not they thought I was pregnant. As of right now i'm not pregnant either and I really didn't find my question to be insensitive. I do realize they can see this and that's fine with me. Thank you for the luck.

    Meh, I guess you didn't get my point. I don't want to split hairs over this...just give a different point of view since there were some hurt feelings. Good luck to you again OP. I did mention my personal experience and I hope you find your BFP!

    THANK YOU! I was baffled by this as well, I would never speak to someone like that in 'real life' even if I thought it was a 'silly' question. But I guess some others feel it's ok to do so behind a computer screen. Regardless, it's old news I deleted the post so that it wouldn't feed anymore drama. I know no one needs that! :)

    This!
  • courty625 Well that's encouraging, because that sounds like what I'm experiencing. This is just a different sensation than my last two pregnancies, although its been a while since I've been pregnant, I feel like its my first. : Thanks!

    Since you're new here, I'll enlighten you. On all of the bump, not just TTGP it's considered rude to dirty delete aka DD a post. The drama was fed even MORE by you deleting because now there's an entire post about that. Oh and btw...they can see what you say here, too. YWIA.

  • I don't care if they see this. I've said nothing mean at all. And I didn't know I meant so much to people that literally 5 hours later I have a whole two treads dedicated to me. But apparently a post dedicated to actually bashing someone is less offensive than asking a question about pregnancy. I deleted it because it was getting ridiculous. Just let it go.

    As I'm sure you'll also learn, people don't forget here on the bump. You're the one that continued it even more by starting off your post here bashing TTGP. That upsets a lot of people, me included because as someone who spent enough time there to understand why the board operates the way it does you're one of 2 million people who come and post a question, then get butthurt when the board doesn't support their fishing. But alas, I've only got my memory to go on and since you DDed no one new can actually see what you said nor what was said to you.

  • sigh I'm not butthurt. They DID tell me to come here and that board was a nightmare for me. I never asked or fished for someone to tell me I was pregnant. It's been a while since I've TTC that's why I asked. My comment about having two boys and a husband was in response to the "Know how to work a penis manual" comment. I said "thanks, I have two boys and a happy husband I think I know how to work one". I'm not going to let people say nasty things to me and roll over. I didn't come on here to make enemies, wish them all the best.

    Wrong.  If you would have said something like 'has anyone ever had implantation cramping' or 'what does implantation cramping feel like', you would have been given a better response.  What you did was list all the dates you had sex, your other phantom symptoms, and asked about the cramping sensations you had.  You WERE fishing for us to squee and tell you that you were TOTES preggly!!111!!!  When you didn't get that response, you got upset and started complaining that we were so mean.

  • I gave dates so that people could understand where I was in my cycle which means this is about the time of implantation if I were to be pregnant. Seeing as i am trying. At the very end I said "So my question is has anyone experienced implantation cramps?". It wouldn't make a hill of beans difference if anyone said I was pregnant or not. I was asking about a specific symptom that maybe someone else might be sharing right now. Right off the bat everyone was sarcastic and rude and saying immature things like I had to crap or something. I didn't start the drama, if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all! :

    I gotta call BS on you not caring whether they said you were pregnant or not. You just said in this thread: "courty625 Well that's encouraging, because that sounds like what I'm experiencing. This is just a different sensation than my last two pregnancies, although its been a while since I've been pregnant, I feel like its my first. : Thanks!"  Ok...so it's encouraging that someone is telling you your symptoms could mean pregnancy since for them it did, but you don't care? Right.

  • Um, it's encouraging because yes, I would like to have another child and this person obviously felt the same symptoms and is pregnant now. That does not mean I am pregnant this very moment.
