Just curious-period due tomarrow but have had 2 faint positive tests. I don't know if I believe them, I have heard some complaints about Accu-clear. But anyways, one time yesterday and one time today I had brown discharge when I wiped. Does this usually mean af is coming? I saw some posts that said its a preg symptom. I had pink spotting sunday I thought it looked like implantation. It's ok either way, just want to hear what you guys know about brown discharge. thanks!

That's how my period always start, with brown discharge... Good luck though.. It's a good sign that you have 2 faint lines on preg tests.. get a different test, like equate for first response and see if you get a line on them.

I'm with k.-- my periods always started with brown spotting. I never had even a pin drop of blood once I was pregnant; no implantation bleeding or anything, thank goodness. I would have freaked if I did. Good luck to you.

thanks...I actually have had implantation bleeding, thats how I knew I was pregnant last time, but it was just a drop of blood......I'm having lots of weird symptoms and my temp is either pregnant or sick! It is fine if I am not pregnant...I am just a little worried. thanks guys...

Hi Sarah, I never ever had implantation bleeding either, and I have been pregnant twice... Sarah, are you ttc or already pregnant... I recall your name from other topics but can't I have a 9 year old son and a 10 month old baby boy.. we do want # 3 but not just yet, maybe sometime in the new year but I have given up my pill so when we are ready I don't have to wait for that to leave my system... when I gave it up last time, it took me 5 months to ovulate..

Elisabeth... have you taken another test yet.?


Bren1367 - September 20

I would say try another test to be sure. I also have brown spotting at the start and sometimes on the last day of my period. On another note, I fell pg in April of this year but m/c in June, and the whole time I had brown spotting. I also have a cousin who had brown spotting all through both of her pregnancies and they went fine. So it might be a sign for either one. Sorry I'm not much help but just thought I'd give you some more info.

no not yet....hoping the UPS man gets here before I leave with my cheap online tests because I don't want to spend anymore money on store ones...i'm really nervous! thanks guys....I usually don't realy have brown spotting...this jut is weird because my Cheri prediction that I did just for fun, not really cuz I was trying, was for this'll be so weird if she was right

Hi Elizabeth, I did have implantation bleeding with my first child- it was to me a very light period and lasted for 3-4 days which i know is unusually long...

I used the cheap internet ones and to rest your mind a little about tests being unreliable, none of my negative tests had evaps. I got a positive one 3 days before af was due, but I wasn't sure if it was positive because it almost looked like an evap! It was really light and I thought maybe I had messed the test up because I was running late for work and tossed it in my pocket. I held it till my break and confirmed with a First Response! :) I think since af is due tomorrow for you, you will be able to get a stronger bfp on them! Good luck! You can come be a June mommy with me since I'm the only one so far!

thanks Kay..I tested this evening with the internet cheapie and it was BFN! It was late at night and very diluted, but i don't know....i guess i believe it? period is still not here...due tomarrow or the next day...don't know what to believe. there are still 2 very disinct bfp's on those other tests....i dont know how to feel
