Cramping and IUI

Did anyone experience more cramping during the 2ww after an IUI? I had my first IUI done last Friday and have been experiencing more cramping than usual. Could this be because of the IUI and hcg trigger shot?

I had cramping to varying degrees after my IUI. Then at about 9 or 10 dpo I started getting bad AF cramps, but it was actually implantation taking place! I don't want to offer you false hope by saying that if you are cramping that's a good sign, because I wouldn't know one way or the other. That was my first time doing IUI's and was fortunate enough that it worked. Good luck, you never know!

Wow, you got pg on your first IUI cycle? That is fantastic!!! Did you have any implantation bleeding?

Well, we did a cycle of injectables, so that helped a lot too, but the IUI's back to back really did the trick. I had one the day before I ovulated and one the day I ovulated. I had no implantation bleeding whatsoever and actually had two embryos implant! I had a vanishing twin at 8 and half weeks, so now I am 16 weeks with a singleton!

I also had some cramping during my 2ww, and the night before I tested positive, I had awful cramping and the exact same feelings that I always have right before AF. I was so sure I wasn't pregnant that I was absolutely stunned when the test was positive!! BTW, I also conceived from my first IUI, even though the dr. said we had less than a 5% chance due to my dh's issues. I had no implantation bleeding at all. However, my bb's were VERY sore about a week post IUI - it hurt to even take a shower - and I noticed blue veins popping out all over them. I don't know if this was from the pregnancy or just from the trigger shot. Anyway, I now have a beautiful, healthy 7 month old daughter!! Good luck to you, and Tracy88, congrats to you!!

Thanks for all the replys. I am currently 7 dpo and am definitely having more cramping than I usually do. I was actually woken up during the night last night due to bad cramping.

JG24, your reply has given me hope because we were also given a less than 5% chance due to DH sperm.
