Brown Spotting And Other Symptoms Help

Les - April 24

I'm new here but have been reading and enjoying your posts for the last few weeks. Thanks to all of you for sharing! I'm about 13 dpo now (LH surge detected on 4/10). My main concern is that I started brown spotting about 9-10 dpo. Mostly when I wiped but occasionally a spot on my pantyliner. It was always light but has basically tapered off. But it's been going on for about 5 days. Could this possibly be implantation bleeding? AF is due tomorrow, I think (based on LH surge on 4/10. My cycles are never regular). I've also been having some mild symptoms on and off for the last week - tender BBs beginning about 9 dpo, which has lessened. BBs still seem bigger now and mildly sore. Moody (which could be a sign of AF). Some "leaky" feeling. I've felt like AF was about to start for several days now, but nothing. And I've been exhausted. I took a two-hour nap yesterday afternoon (and I never take naps) and then slept for 10 hours last night. I've taken two tests with FMU - both negative. The last one was yesterday morning. Both First Response Early Detection. Any thoughts? DH and I are ttc. I am hopeful, but mostly concerned about the spotting.

Sounds like implantation bleeding. Good luck!

It sounds like implantation bleeding to me, too. and you just have to wait and retest again.

I am 8 weeks pregnant with my 4 th pregnancy. 1 was an ectopic the other a miscarriage. 1 healthy son. With the ectopic pregnancy i had brown spotting 1 week before my af was due. It stopped around the time of my period within 2-3 days. Then bleeding and clotting 2-3 days after af was to start and continued for weeks. Tenderness started one and half weeks after period was due. I had all the symptoms of being pregnant and tested positive, but something just was not right with the tenderness on one side and irregular bleeding often mistaked for af. Take another test in a couple of days and if positive immediate Bhch levels to see if doubling as per normal or ultrasound if Dr agrees. Emergency department was great with me.

Well, I had convinced myself that it had to be IB when AF showed up in full force late last night. With all the typical symptoms, including cramps. I don't think they are strong enough to be a sign of a miscarriage, but I think I have some clotting (is that normal?). So the cycle begins again ...
