iwantbaby - October 13

Hi, I am 32 years old and trying to get pregnant for couple of months. My last period was september 12, lasted 4/5 days. I have regular 27 days cycle, and according to this, i was expecting my period on october 8th. But instead of period, from october 7th, I am having brown discharge and pink spotting. It lasted for 3 days, then stopped. Again it started from 12th october, and today on 13th october, its becoming little heavier than previous days, still its dark brown. I had cramp before, but not from 12th. Its 6 days since I missed period, I already took HPT, but both came negative. How long should I wait to take another pregnancy test? How long this brown discharge will last maximum? Should I run to the doctor immediately? I am worried whats going on. Please help. This is my first time missing period.

When i found out i was pregnant i was going through the same sort of thing. I spotted every month for the first trimester around the same time that i would expect to have my period. I tested positive for pregnancy when i was 2 weeks late. I would wait another week or so and take another test. If you still have a negative test maybe call your doctor and they might be able to have you get a blood test. Thats the most accurate test they can even tell you how much HCG is in your blood system to tell you if its a normal amount for how far along you should be. It could be implantation bleeding which happens around 2-3 weeks after concieving. If you get lots and lots of mentrual like pains but more intense than normal along with lots of bright red blood i would head straight to your closest hospital but otherwise hang in there and take another test in a few days or a week if you can hang on that long. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello bella nikita, thanks for your reply. I will wait for some more days. Its still brown discharge, no red sign, so i guess its still ok. No other pregnancy symptom yet though. So not sure if i am pregnant at all. I had tendered b___st which was hurting for last couple of days, but I am not feeling anything at all now. I guess time will tell eventually.

hi. i agree with the below poster. with my first child i had an extremely light period (off and on for 3 days). i had taken 2 pregnancy tests that were both negative. i waited about a week and took another one and i was pregnant. so it is still a possibility. if you have i would call a doctor though. best wishes to you.

Iwantbaby - so any news? did you take another test? or did you get your period. I guess its only been 4 days but im just curious lol.


iwantbaby - October 17

Thanks for your concern.. i got my period, but its more than period. its been 4 days, i am bleeding, not heavy though, no cramp, little unusual as my regular period generally ends in 5 days. Not sure this time when it will end. Sometimes i feel i was pregnant, then i miscarry. May be its the bleeding for miscarriage. But as far as I read online about miscarry, I don't see any similarity with my bleeding. I don't know what it is. I will go to see doctor as soon as my period ends. I am very upset.

Hi iwantbaby, I'm new to this site. I came across this site because I was searching for something online that could possibly help me before I call my doctor. I'm having some of the very same symptoms as you; however, I haven't taken a pregnancy test because I've been disappointed in the past. I'm currently having a dark brown discharge. It looks very much like my period is on, but it's brown. It's not heavy though. It looks like dried blood. Can someone please try to help me understand what this is. I'm concerned, nervous, etc. Thanks to all!


iwantbaby - November 2

hello precious, I don't know what this is you are having. I had the same thing, and after 6 days i have my full period, which stayed 6 more days. It was heart breaking, but you have to take it easy. How many days you are late for? If it is more than 10 days, I will suggest you to go to doctor. I wish you all the best.

Iwantbaby- it sounds like you had a chemical pregnancy. I would look them up online to get more info- but it definitely sounds like it. Exactly the symptoms other ladies I have talked to have had. Period a few days late. Kind of feel pregnant. Then some bleeding then period- which is heavier than normal because it is a chemical pregnancy. Basically a pregnancy that started, but did not take form.

ConfusedOne - October 27

Hello. I found this site when I was searching the web for an answer. I'm 17 and I've already had a baby. He is 5 months old. I missed my period this month and for the past couple days I've had a light brown discharge. It's not heavy. I just find it in my underwear. I took one test 2 days ago and it came out negative but I've been told that sometimes it takes a bit before it can tell. Can I get some help? I'm very confused.

Hi. I'm new to this site. Was searching for answers and came accross it so I thought I would comment.. My last proper period was Nov' 23rd 2011.. I then didn't have one in december.. There was a possibility I could have been pregnant but tests were negative, so I went to the doctors & he led me to believe I'd had a miscarriage on 14th January as had a period - was very heavy & lots of clots.. Anyway.. Now I've not had a period or any signs of blood since Jan 14th and again there's a possibility I could be pregnant, but yet again, all HPT's are coming back negative. I have what I believe to be pregnancy symptoms ; nausea-i'm feeling it all day but never actually sick, more frequent peeing, bloated all the time-my tummy is poking out more than normal also, tender/itchy b___sts (which have got bigger) more frequent excretion (usually I would have every other day but I'm doing it more than once a day recently) experiencing bad heartburn. Yesterday (after s_x) I had some browny discharge with some spotting of blood & been getting achey cramps in lower abdomen past couple days. Last test I did was 2 days ago & still said negative. I have a doctors appointment on next Wednesday.. But I'm so confused right now & need a little advice on what to do? Please help.

Hi Confusedbird91. I'm also having almost identical symtoms of pregnancy. I've had 4 months of spotting with brownish pink and not enough to fill a pad. They all happened pretty much on time and last 2 days or so. My regular period isn't super heavy and lasts 3-5 days. I've taken 3 hpt's but they all came out negative. I went to the Dr's this past Wed. and am waiting for the results from the several blood tests she's running. I don't want to give up hope because this would be such an awesome thing to happen in my life. The possible baby's father hasn't had any boys and has 2 daughters so I've already a__sumed that this is definitely a boy. I actually feel it! I'm having insomnia like crazy and I've never had it more than once in a blue moon and now it's almost every night. My b___bs went up 2 sizes and you can see the veins. Pooping is quite the experience because it's happening 3-4 times a day and big full poops. Sorry TMI. Headaches, backaches, sinus problems, tummy pokes out with a rounder ball shape over my ponch. Again probably TMI sorry. I haven't actually thrown up but have nausea and light headed a lot. Pee more and really thirsty for water. I never drink this much water. Hungry and am eating manly sized meals. Face glowing, nipples a little darker, and pimples all over my neck and around hair line. This would be my first so Am I crazy??? I am on pins and needles waiting for my results. They said I might have to wait till next Wed!

I should also let you all know that within a week or so after one of our unprotected nights, my b___bs started hurting way worse than I've ever experienced. Then when my period didn't happen normally I suspected pregnancy and started doing hpt's. I started feeling my belly grow in the last couple weeks and I was amazed because I thought the tests were accurate. Then started feeling b___terfly like feelings in my tummy and noticed how round it was poking out. I'm not skinny but I'm pretty small. (size 4) *Crossing fingers and praying for this!!! Good luck to you too Confusedbird91!
