Ovulation Signs Cramps

Sharon asks…

What are the signs of pregnancy. I dont want to do the urine test because I dont want to be disappointed?

I am about 20 days late on my period, but this is a common thing for me to miss cycles. We are trying to get pregnant and I am trying to find signs in my body to tell me whether I am pregnant or not. I decided to wait a couple of weeks before taking the pregnany test but I’d like to know :-D
What are some common early signs that ladies out there experienced?

Implantaion bleeding and cramping

Hon, i know exactly what it’s like to take a test, get a negative result and be totally crushed! My husband and i tried for 3 yrs to get pregnant. BUT it happened. You can’t hide away wishing it were so..you must TEST.
If you want to feel like you have more control of the situation and your test shows that your not pregnant, i would suggest getting some home ovulation kits. They help you chart when you are ovulating and that way you will know exactly when to have sex in order to have a better chance at pregnancy.
My husband and i tried (like i said) for 3yrs, about 2 1/2 yrs without the ovulation kits, mostly because i too didn’t want to be disappointed. BUT i got over that, and got serious. 6 months after charting my ovulation we were pregnant! I have a beautiful daughter w/him (our first together, we each have a son from a pervious marriage as well). So when we wanted another child i used those kits!! And 2 months after trying we were pregnant again!

Don’t give up, don’t get discouraged, and DON’T wait around because your scared! Take control!

Nancy asks…

How long after ovulation does implantation usually occur?

How long after you ovulate and the egg is fertilized does implantation occur? Are there any signs that implantation has or is occuring?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Implantation normally occurs within a few days to a week (average 3-12 days but usally about 7 days) after fertilization.

Some women don’t have (or don’t notice) any signs, but some do.

- The most common sign of implantation is called “implantation bleeding” which is usually just a light pink (or red) spotting just before or around your usual time of menstruation. It can happen just once or last a few days.

- Cramping: light cramping usually located on side (depending on which side you ovulated from.) (Some women will mistake this as a sign of menstruation.)

- Slight drop in normal body temperature, followed by a slight increase in normal body temperature. The drop is during the actual implantation; the increase happens as the hormones in your body begin to change after implantation (an increase in the production of progesterone.)

You may or may not experience any of these signs / symptoms.
However, if fertilization & implantation has indeed occurred, your body will immediately begin to make a hormone called HcG, which is the hormone identified in pregnancy tests (whether it’s a home test or one from your medical care provider.) This is the only sure way to test for implantation indefinitely, which means: pregnancy.

Here’s a link to a website that can give you early signs of pregnancy supposedly even before you’ve noticed a missed period:



Lizzie asks…

How long does it take to show the first signs of pregnancy and what are the signs?

Me and my husband had unprotected sex last night. How long does it take to show pregnancy? What are the signs?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

4-5 weeks until symptoms appear. Nausea, vomiting, bloating, cramps, tender breasts, headaches, moodswings. Figure out if you were ovulating by looking up an ovulation calendar like on babycenter.com .

Betty asks…

What signs of pregnancy could you notice at 2 weeks if any?

At 2 weeks of pregnancy, are their any signs to watch for?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Do you mean two weeks after conception or two weeks into your cycle?

In the case of two weeks after conception you may experience any or none of the following: Missed period (though some women have one in spite of pregnnacy), fatigue, nausea and/or vomiting, light-headedness, back pains, achy joints, food cravings or aversions, positive pregnancy test (though some women will still have a negative at this point), cramps kind of like a period is coming on, moodiness, etc… Some women have no symptoms at all save for an eventual missed period and a positive test and some women have every symptom in the book. Each pregnancy is also different but often a woman who has had more than one pregnancy will be able to tell early on that they are pregnant by how they feel.

If you are speaking about how you might feel two weeks into your cycle then that is a differnt answer altogether. Usually, but not always, two weeks into a cycle a woman is either ovulating or just about to ovulate. During this time a woman can indeed feel some symptoms. You may feel slightly crampy and pms like symptoms. This would be perfectly normal. In some cases women may even feel nauseated and fatigued. It mainly depends on a woman’s sensitivity to the hormonal changes that are happening during that time. Some women start feeling the pms symptoms from ovulation and continue having them until they discover they are pregnant or get a period. About three weeks into a cycle, if you conceived, you may have some implantation signs which may include a little bit of brown spotting and increased cervical fluid. In some cases a women may feel many symptoms of pregnancy. Some women are very sensitive to the hormonal changes in their bodies and others aren’t. Also if you have a multiple pregnancy it is very likely you will not only test positive earlier on a pregnancy test but you will also feel your pregnancy symptoms stronger and earlier than if you conceive only one baby.

With my first pregnancy I didn’t know that I was pregnant until I missed my period. Other than pms that was a little more intense than usual there were no other signs. I also had conceived one baby. I tested positive at 18 days past ovulation. With my second pregnancy I felt pregnancy symptoms and tested positive a week before my period was supposed to begin and I had a twin pregnancy. My third, and current pregnancy, I also felt the pregnancy symptoms very early on and tested positive a week before my period was due and I had conceived triplets. I know it sounds funny (1,2,3) but it is true and I am almost afraid next tiem it will be quads lol! Two of the babies didn’t make it past the first trimester though.

As for others saying this is a stupid question I have to say I greatly disagree. We don’t all know everything and asking helps us to learn things. How do any of you know that this information isn’t something that will greatly benefit the asker? Not everyone knows all the information about cycles and pregnancy that others take for granted! A stupid question is one that requires and answer that has no benefit!

Carol asks…

What are the reasons for having EWCM other than ovulation?

I had terrible cramps last night-thought it was AF, but she isn’t here yet. I am on CD 26, with a normal 23-24 day cycle. I did however have a large amount of EWCM for about an hour. What causes EWCM?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Maybe your preggo! That is a sign. And the cramps is a sign also. Good luck!!
