This is a strange question, but I have had hardly any cramping during the 2ww. I have heard that cramping is good and indicates implantation is happening. Today, I am feeling like there might be cramping - but then again I think I am just imagining it. I did get a slight pain around 5dp5dt and then nothing. But even then it was hardly anything - and I think I could have imagined it. Maybe I want some sort of indication or symptom, so my imagination is going full force?
We all so want symptoms, but... (failure ment, success ment)

many ladies have been pregnant and felt absolutely nothing. We are on so many hormones, and the effects of those often mimic pregnancy symptoms (tender breasts, tiredness, etc). During my 1st cycle I felt tired and toward the end of the 2ww, my breasts were a little tender, but that cycle ended in a bfn. My next cycle, I again felt tired and my breasts were sore, and that cycle ended with a bfp. So there's really no rhyme or reason when it comes to symptoms. Also, symptoms can come and go, so it's really up to the beta to tell the full story. When is your beta, or are you planning on poas? Either way, the beta is still necessary for an actual assessment of whether you are pregnant or not.
I will pray that your 2ww flies by and that you are celebrating a bfp very soon!
I don't think it's so much a matter of imagination (pg ment)

as the fact that "symptoms" aren't very reliable at that point: e.g., cramping and spotting can be implantation, or a sign of AF. During my 2ww I didn't notice much at all in the way of symptoms; maybe an odd kind of twinge about 5dpt (plus I was having horrendous itching from my PIO injections until they changed the oil base for me). Then, the morning of my beta (11dp5dt), I woke up with strong cramps, just like AF. I was sure the cycle had failed, but I got a whopping beta and I'm in my 3rd trimester now.
