 Okay my question is in reguards to implantation cramping.  Did it feel to you in the first month of your pregnancy like you were getting ready to get your period, but never did?  Like a sharp kinda cramping but it goes away?  Like this type of cramping last for maybe an hour or less, on and off for about two days or more?  More like in the pelvic area at one side?

Yes. I am 6 weeks and sometimes I still run to the bathroom worried I'm gonna see blood because it feels like period cramps. Judging by some of the books I've read its pretty normal. Like you said sometimes mine last a second, sometimes more. Talk to you doctor, but mild cramping is pretty normal.

 I am long out of the first trimester but I do remember that right around the time implantation occurred, I had some mild cramping predominantly on the left side. This made me run to the bathroom to see if my period had started everytime I had a glob of discharge. I did have something that somewhat resembled a short & very light period but looking back I think that bleeding came from a combination of a cyst on my ovary bursting open which triggered ovulation and implantation occuring.

YES. this happened to me. It freaked me out because this was my first pregnancy. (i'm 9 months now). Babycenter.com has some AWESOME advice on this. It felt like my period was going to start and never did. Watch for spotting and things like that, although I think it might actually be normal to get a light period in your first month of pregnancy, not 100% sure on that though. They say during implantation your egg is attaching itself the the wall of your uterus and your placenta is starting to form and all of that jazz, so it can feel like period cramps. I had this cramping off and on for a few months after the first month too. I asked my doctor about it and she said it was normal and that my uterus was stretching. Talk to your doc about it though, it will make you feel a lot better when she tells you everything is going according to plan.
