Period Questions So Confused

Sarah - December 15

Hi there. I noticed somewhere in another thread that they said that you could be pregnant and still have your period? On Saturday, I had a spotting of like a pink fluid in the afternoon, and that was it. My period started on Sunday afternoon, and I had TERRIBLE TERRIBLE cramps (extending into Tues, and some little ones today), but my flow has been light almost every single day. USUALLY, it's like a tidal wave for the first few days... does anyone have any info about this? Thanks a bunch!

Hi Sarah, I have been kinda the same way. I was 11 days late and on saturday I had bad cramping like I was going to start and about 1 hr later they disappeared. The next day I started my period but it was very light compared to normal and seemed to stop last night, day 3, started up again late this morning, very sporadically though. First 3 days were very pink and watery, with what seemed to be lots of mucus, and today when starting again it was a very deep dark red.

Adonis, When my period started, it just has been a consistent bright red.... just thin bright blood, not my usual thick period, if that makes any sense. I was 5 days late (not as much as you!). This is the first time I've heard about "Implantation Bleeding"... so that's why I'm confused. I'm not trying to get my hopes up or anything... we've been only trying for 3 months... but have you taken a HPT yet? I took one last week after being 3 days late and it was negative. Should I (we) call our Dr's??? So confused.

Sarah, I did take a hpt test at 7 days and it was negative, but there seem to be so many wrong hpt test from reading here. I heard of implantation bleeding, but I didn't realize there were so many variations from woman to woman. I am also trying to stay low key because odds are against hubby and I. We have been trying for 6 mths now and he has also had a vasectomy reversal. I was told that since I do have my period hcg probably wouldn't be enough for a hpt test to pick up on, so either wait another week or go for a blood test. I am also confused... not a big fan of my body right about now!

Yeah, I read all about people having difficulties w/ HPT's and it was getting me mad b/c you spend all that money on something that may or may not work. I guess a blood test would be the best option. I read that Implantation could last a few days... isn't this all so frustrating? Having a child is such a natural thing, you'd think it would be easier! I understand about staying low-key about it... my friend had difficulty and tried for 2 years and every single month, she thought she was pregnant, and she wasn't... it was a mess, but now she has a cute little one now and she was worth all that hard work. Do you have any kids yet? We don't, we can't wait to have one (God willing)! Have you had any other pg symptoms lately? I've not been able to sleep that well, ga__sy, diarrhea, more hungry than usual, felt dizzy a few times, and felt pukey last week for a few days.... but HEY, it could have been the flu... you never know!

I think the hpt's are probably a pretty big money bracket with all us suckers out there trying to have babies, they know how anxious we all are. It's just kind of hard to think there are people out there who aren't trying or don't want a baby and they seem to get pregnant just like that, then there are us who play the wait and see game. I am trying for my first child, will be #3 for hubby but I think he is even more anxious than me these days. I have been sick to my stomach off and on, usually in evenings, not pukey but more like I stayed on a merry-go-round too long, just slightly queasy, also had feeling in lower belly last 2 days kind of like when your stomach growls, it's been constant... also sore lower back for no apparent reason, sore nipples and underneath my b___sts, I've also been constipated then to diarrhea for past 2 or 3 days. I've just generally felt very ODD!!

I TOTALLY AGREE with you about the HPT... it's a conspiracy (hee hee)! However, I know what you mean, I just feel plain odd too. I just searched Yahoo for Implantation Bleeding and the info is kinda different in each site, you just never know... and they say it's rare. I think I may wait another week to test if I still feel like c___p. However, it's 11pm and I think I better go to bed (that is, if I can sleep at all)!!! It's been nice talking to you! Take care and keep us updated! -Sarah-

Only 9pm here. I am going to wait another week or so to retest also, jut to try and be as sure as possible. Let me know how everything goes... Nice talking with you and good luck!
