Implantation pinching...?

I know, I know...be patient.  I normally am, however when it comes to pregnancy, I get TOO EXCITED!  Regardless...I haven't been tracking my BBT but I do know when I ovulate.  I always have a 28-29 day cycle (its really about 28.5, if that makes sense to any of you :-).  I ovulated October 9th.  We did the BD  that day, and many days before.  6 days after ovulation (yesterday, the 15th) I had slight cramping that seemed like menstrual cramping to me.  Typically, about a week before I start (which would be the 23rd), I get little cramps on and off up until the day.  Bummer.  BUT, later on I ended up getting a much bigger pinching/pulling sensation that lasted, eh, maybe an hour.  Beyond that, it was the same pinching feeling but very mild...nothing like cramping.  In my past, I've had three pregnancies...two m/c and then my baby boy, Liam.  With none of them did I get any implantation bleeding so I don't expect to in the future.  I THINK I recall this pinching feeling previously but it's hard to recall...how long does implantaion "cramping" (or potentially in my case "pinching") typically take? Could this "pinching" have been that?  Would the 17th (2 days after this "pinching") be too early to test?

That sounds promising, the timing would be on target for implantation.  I think it's still too early to test though, I would give it a couple of more days.  Good luck!

Good luck! There's just never any predicting symptoms because of past pregnancies. My two pregnancies with my boys were very different in terms of symptoms. I thought I knew what to look for but boy was I wrong. I never spotted with my first but I did with my secon for a week or so around 6 weeks. I had tons of early pg symptoms with my first, not many with the second except a few in hindsight, none that were giveaways.
