    Hi,

    new to this forum and would love some advice from you 1st trimester ladies (huge congrats by the way) :bump:

    How early in your pregnancy did you get cramps (if you did) and what did they feel like?

    Am very interested to know.

    thanks in advance :smile:

    Pretty much right away. My first symptom was as if AF was about to arrive.


    On my iPhone - so cant see tickers :(

    that sounds promising. Did the cramps start earlier than they would if it was AF coming or about the same time? I have been cramping for 5 days now :wall:

    Did they feel any different? xx

    I had cramps from 2DPO up until a couple of days before AF was due. Too early for themto be PG symptoms but there was obviously something going on in there!

    Me too - AF type cramps before BFP - but they never got as bas as my normal AF cramps. Then I got quite a lot of twinges, cramps and niggles over the next week or so, and on and off since too!

    I had cramps 3 days before period would have come, they lasted 2 days and then stopped. Suddenly I felt like AF wasn't going to visit anymore and she didn't x
