When Can You Test With Spotting

Cathy - February 17

Hi Ladies, I'm 38 and my DH and I are TTC#1 for the past 7 months. I was due for AF on Jan 19th and only had a tiny bit of spotting the night of the 18th and then nothing the next morning or since then. I've been regular all my life except for January and now February. I tested 3 times with First Response throughout January/February (waited a week between tests) and all were BFN. I ovulated since on Feb 5th and my husband and I did TTC during that time. The night of Feb 13th, I started having tiny cramps and figured i'd wake up on the 14th with a full heavy period, like I normally have. But nothing. Instead I have been spotting for the 14th-16th only really evident when I wiped (pink/red) and I felt like I have had the flu for the past 3 days. I've felt a bit woozy, tired, nauesous and I have bloating and pressure like I'm supposed to have a period, but haven't really had much of one. I normally have a regular 28-30 day cycle with heavy bleeding for the first 3 days and then lighter for 4 more days. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. Could this spotting actually have been my period or was it implantation bleeding? Is it too early to take a test if it was implantation bleeding? Thanks in advance, Cathy

Definitley sounds like it could have been implantation bleeding & your other symptoms seem to support that. I'm an anxious person, so i'm always in favor of taking a pregnancy test as soon as a pregnancy is suspected (as supported by symptoms). I would say go ahead and take one, and if it's negative, take another one in 5 days if you still haven't had your period. Good luck Cathy! :o)
