    Fasting while TTC
    BeautifullyBlessed posted:
    Have any of you ever went on a fast immediately after ttc? I've been having mild cramping (like menstrual cramps) down in my uterus area. It's very dull and light. I've had my period this month, but the cramping never stopped which is unusual for me.

    Does fasting create menstrual like cramps or could I still be pregnant even though I had a period? I took 2 hpts and they were negative.

    Still hoping though.
    Me (31) DH (30) Hoping for 1st DS or DD by next year!

    God is good all the time and His mercy endures at peace!

    If you recently had an AF and have had negative tests, I think it's very unlikely you're pregnant.

    Out of curiosity, why are you fasting if you're TTC?
