I'm a little crampy but not to much worse for wear. I was scared it was going to hurt so bad. Any tips for cramps and chasing kids though?

Can honestly say that it caused me no pain or discomfort so can't really help but suggest no chasing kids too much in first few days.

Didn't bother me much, the cramping was gone completely by the next day.

Good to hear. It's all ready starting to subside but i can't decide if that is from the pain meds or not lol

They make the disposable heat pads that stick on. I used one of them on my stomach the first day.

That will help alot. The day I got my mirena I was a hormonal mess and I got a speeding ticket because I was running late to the dr. office. My dr. will only put it in on your period and it was the last day of mine so I had to get to that appt. By the time I got my ticket, got my mirena inserted and got home I was a huge crying, snotty, mess. My poor dh, I took some advil, made a drink and took a hot bath. It worked. ;)

My dr did it the day before I was supposed to start. I was so nervous from all the horror stories I've heard about!

Yeah it sounds alot worse than it is. I had two mirenas for a total of ten years. I freakin love those things. But sadly a few months before I was going to get my second one replaced my body freaked out. My dr recommended to have it removed for a while. I loved not having AF, now I am on the pill. I miss my mirena. :(
