Cramps & temp spike.... implantation?

Well I'm 7 DPO today. I've had mild cramping off and on the last 2 days, and this morning my temp was the good ol' 98.6, which is the highest I have ever seen it since I started temping. Never gotten above 98.4 before, and that's only been a few times. How likely do you think it is that maybe these are "symptoms" of implantation????

ooh so I just put today's crampiness into FF. It now says under "top signs": Frequencies of your top signs on pregnancy charts at 7 DPO:
Cramps:20.3%

And early pg signs jumped up from 8 pts to 16. Sounds promising, right? I hope so....

Fx'd!! Higher temps sound promising to me! I personally wouldn't go by the crampiness since that can go either way...

Are you testing or waiting to see if af is late?

I agree...the temp spike is definately a good thing!

Hmmm, back down to 98.2 today....

Ugh, I can't decide what to do about testing. Last month I tested on 10DPO I think. I only have 1 test left and would rather not "waste" it in case I'll need it next month (hope not!)
Here's the thing. I would prefer to test on Sundays because then DH is home and we can actually celebrate it together if I get the BFP. I work M-F and he works dinner shift at a restaurant Tues-Sat (actually all day Sat), so we don't see a whole lot of each other. Yes, I know I could try testing at night when he gets home or something, but I prefer to use FMU.
This Sunday will be 11 DPO. IF I were to decide to test early and actually got the BFP, I'd be worried he might let it slip to his family when they come to visit him and Kira on Monday (they and I do not get along AT ALL, and luckily they live 5 hours away so we don't ahve to deal with them TOO much...). I def do not want them being among the first to know that I'm pg!
So if I don't test this Sunday, my other option is to wait until next weekend. If AF comes, I'm thinking it will be around Fri or Sat. So by Sunday either AF will be here, or I'll test.....

98.2 is still pretty high!!! I would wait and see what happens tomorrow. My temp actually spiked way up this morning too....odd for me as well. I feel like my allergies are acting up so maybe that's it?
I don't blame you for not wanting the inlaws to know....I wouldn't let DH tell mine for a long time either! She is CRAZY! When we get preggy this time I plan on keeping it a secret from everyone longer. We told my family before the end of the first trimester and I just feel like everyone got so excited and made me more anxious than necessary. This time I would like to enjoy it between just us for awhile.
As far as testing I will be waiting until the end of next week too...so we can hold out together. :)

98.1* this morning. But I also slept like crap, so it doesn't count. Hopefully I sleep better tonight.

Man, you're on CD31? How long are your cycles usually?

This is pretty normal for me. I o'd a week further into my cycle than you. But I have a pretty normal 14day LP.
