rp: bad AF like cramps, but still bfp?

i'm 10dp5dt.  i started getting bad AF like cramps last night, and i still have them today.  beta isn't until monday.  i think deep down, i know that i'm probably not pregnant, but wanted to see if anyone experienced bad AF like cramps, but was still pregnant.

i already posted this on SAIF.  thanks ladies.

  • I hope cramping can be a good sign, since I've also got a beta on Monday and have been mildly cramping on and off since Thursday...

  • M & M-

    Can I ask you how come your beta isn't until Monday if you are 10d post 5dt?  Isn't that late?  I hope your cramping is a good sign and not AF.  Best of luck to you for Monday!!

    for some reason, my RE makes you wait a long time if it's a 5dt.  i have no idea why.  i asked if i could come in this morning, and was told yes, but that even if it's negative, i'd have to go back on monday for a re-test...i figured i might as well just wait until monday then.  i will not be POAS, although i am tempted.

  • Well, good luck holding out until Monday (you are almost there). 

    Again, best of luck to you.  I hope you get your BFP.

  • Most ppl do experience some cramping in early preg.  I do.  I am.  For me, it's not all the time, just on and off through out the day.  It's from a stretching uterus or so I've heard. 

    One girl I know, her cramps where so bad, she went to the ER and everything was fine. 

    It's different for everyone I guess.

    And I guess that's why ppl say they felt like AF was coming because they're pretty similar symptoms (bloating, cramping, etc). 

    GL to you!  I hope it's a strong beta!

  • When I was pregnant, I had cramps that felt like AF. 

    I really hope you get your sticky BFP this cycle!

  • Okay... so even if you think! you have AF, with bleeding and stuff, you can still be pregnant... not that I wish that on you, just saying don't give up!

    Sooo.... hang in there!

  • I did. I had AF like cramps a couple days before my BFP and continuing on until a few days after my BFP. I know its hard but try to stay positive. This could be your cycle.

  • I've heard that af type cramping before a bfp is common. My best friend had horrible AF type cramps after her ivf cycle and ended up getting a BFP. I have my fingers crossed for you and you will be in my t&p's!
