Hi Dave!

No one can really tell about symptoms, as they are different for every woman... But a lot of pregnant ladies have said that pregnancy symptoms are like AF's one!.

Your body has also been through a lot these past weeks, so it also could be it's way to complain!

Dont worry about the cramping (if it is really bad , you should speak to your doc)

Best of luck!
Take care

I agree with Souris. Our bodies go through a lot with all these hormones. But I will tell you that during my 2ww I had terrible AF cramps. I kept thinking that AF was going to arrive any day, but to my surprise it never did and I ended up with a BFP! Everyone is different, but cramps are not always a bad sign.

Hang in there. Here to hoping you get a BFP!!!!

Lots of love,

Hang in there and remember that AF signs can so easily be the signs of early pregnancy.

Take care and get plenty of rest.

If you feel like joining in with others on the 2ww there is a thread for other ladies currently going on the General Forum. You might find it helps to share.
