Implantation Cramps – Early Sign of Pregnancy

Implantation Cramps Early Sign of Pregnancy

One of the earliest pregnancy symptoms some women are lucky enough to feel is implantation cramping. The moment your fertilised egg attaches itself to your uterine lining. 

Implantation Cramps vs PMS Cramps

Are you wondering if you could be pregnant and if you are feeling implantation cramps? You are not sure how to tell the difference between pregnancy signs and pms cramps? There is a fine difference. I explain how to recognize implantation cramps.  

How to Recognize Symptoms of Implantation

I felt implantation symptoms as soon as two days after conception. A very clear sharp feeling on one side of my lower abdomen. Almost like a pinprick. Followed shortly after by cramping pains across my lower abdomen. Implantation cramps feel distinctly different to period cramps; more of a stretching of the uterus than a dull downward feeling. If you ovulate early in your menstrual cycle, you may feel cramping earlier than you usually feel menstrual cramping. Implantatation should not be overly painful. If you are experiencing more severe pain on one side, please contact your doctor immediately.  

Implantation Bleeding or Spotting

Implantation can cause your uterus to feel crampy on one side for 2-3 days, whilst your fertilized egg travels from the fallopian tubes and nestles into the lining of your womb.

When the fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine lining, it could cause a little “spotting” or light bleeding. This is called implantation spotting or implantation bleeding.  Normally a dark brown or rusty brown colour. The moment your egg nestles into your uterine wall, this is when you may feel a sharp cramping pain.

Bleeding or spotting is normally light and lasts for around two to three days. If you experience more heavy bleeding or unusual pain, please contact your doctor.

Video Explanation

Watch my video where I explain in detail how to recognize implantation cramps and what causes cramps and bleeding. It is easier to understand when I explain how to tell the difference between menstrual cramping and symptoms of implantation in my video.

What are the signs of successful implantation?

Implantation cramping and spotting should ease after two to three days. If implantation has been successful, estrogen levels will start rising rapidly and you will notice the changes in your body before your period is due. See my blog about 12 Early Signs of Pregnancy where I talk about pregnancy symptoms before a missed period or a positive pregnancy test.
