Implantation cramps refer to the discomfort many women feel about 8-10 days after ovulation in a month when they become pregnant. The discomfort occurs as the fertilized egg, the embryo, "burrows" into the lining of the uterus (endometrium) where it will be begin to develop into a baby. That process is irritating to the uterus (which is primarily muscle) and produces a mild cramping sensation.
