  • Ovulation cramping and bleeding usually occur about 10-12 days after fertilization (if at all! many women don't experience this). I noticed it about a week and a half after my LMP and it felt like period cramps to me. Very mild, I wasn't really sure what to think (we weren't TTC) and then a day or two later after I peed, I wiped, and there was just one pink streak on the toilet paper. Nothing more. I actually remember posting about it asking here on Cafemom, and that was around the 21st or so, and the other day I found out that I am in fact pregnant. I hope this helps you recognize what you're looking for, but with my first pregnancy, I didn't have implantation symptoms. Good luck!

  • Many women don't have it. I did feel a touch odd around 10 DPO with my second, so I took a pregnancy test and it was lightly but distinctly positive. I followed up with a blood test to be sure.

    I'd suggest for your first waiting until 15-16 DPO (depending on your luteal phase - mine is 14-15 days) to POAS, and then if it's neg, wait another day or two and try POAS again.
