Yesterday and today I've had cramping...mostly on the left side. Well it's been more significant on the left side. This morning it hurt a lot, not like bend you over kind of pain but it was enough to notice. I still have the cramping/pain but it's mild. What's weird though is it's not my entire abdomen but on either side like .... \ / ....if you get my meaning. Is this bad?

I'm hoping my period doesn't arrive, it's supposed to arrive July 3 ish...

These aren't period cramps, definitely had those before. Nothing like that.

I am trying to keep my head on straight too. LOL Although it's really hard. :P Today is my 9th DPO...or so I think. According to fertility friend.com's calendar.

lol yes let's hope!

So...a bit TMI but wiped after going to bathroom earlier and I'm not totally certain but I think there was blood...can't be sure though because when I wiped a second time there was nothing.

Can we say...CONFUSED even more now? lol

Well, I have been on the lookout for any spotting actually too since THAT also is a sign of implantation according to the sites that came up during my google search for "cramping 8DPO" I hate giving any false hope to anyone even myself at this point but that IS what I read so I am hopeful for you!! And the one woman I know who had implantation bleeding said in her three pregnancies she ONLY had it with the twins and it was just one spot - almost not noticable, just a bit of pink on the toilet paper.

Well I can't even be sure...and LOL I don't want to go into too much detail. I just saw the paper and it looked red after I'd throw it away...How do you explain something without being too TMI?! lmao

I am hopeful but not putting all my stock into it until I know I am/am not pregnant. I don't remember spotting with my first two kids. Of course I didn't even know I was pregnant with my first until I was about a month or two in...That was a long time ago, too long to remember lol...

ah well I hold up hope for us both anyways :D

If spotting pre-af isn't typical for you then all this cramping & spotting could very well be signs of implantation! Good luck :)

Well I keep going back and forth. I've had mild cramping all day. Then it went away, then when I went to pick my kids up it came back...so I was like ok this has got to be AF symptoms...but they aren't like AF cramps...or so I hope. Then when I got home they went away...but now they are back LOL And it all stops at my belly button, not sure how to describe that one. I've had lower back pain and lower rib pain for a few days now, and today and last night I noticed that my vagina has a pain high up, not sure what that would be from either. :/
