Implantation bleeding and testing?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm pretty sure I just had some implantation bleeding today (if I'm pregnant that is). It was exactly like with DD where I had some extremely light spotting, just enough to see on toilet paper. Do you think that would mean that I've far enough along to try and test with some accuracy? I tried testing a 4 days ago and got a BFN. I *think* I had my last period on Feb 12th so in theory I should wait until March 12th or later to test but I'm getting really impatient! I bought a kit with three tests and have 2 left but I also don't want to waste them because they are really expensive here!!! Oh, and I've been having a lot of other symptoms too...

I think if the baby is implanting today you need to wait 24-48 hours for the hcg to show up in the urine. Good luck!

I think I tested a day or two after implantation spotting when I got my first faint bfp with this most recent pregnancy.

I'm in the exact same situation! I had some spotting yesterday and some today, but yesterday's test was a BFN. I do have some light cramping too, so maybe this will end up as a chemical. Funny thing is that I think I'm 13 or 14 DPO now...not sure whether to abandon all hope and assume this is the beginning of AF, or to hold out for a BFP.

I have no idea if I'm having symptoms or if I'm crazy. Both seem equally likely.

Good luck!!!!! That fact that you're farther along seems promising, so here's hoping for a BFP!

I'm pretty sure on the symptoms because I've been having an insane amount of discharge, which I only get during pregnancy (sorry if TMI!) and it can't ignore the constant nausea. Then again, I've had cysts in the past, which also causes nausea so I'm just hoping and praying that it's not that!

Hi ladies, I'm in exactly the same boat! My spotting was just a tiny bit on Saturday and on Monday, I mean only enough that I see it on the tissue. This morning I got a BFN.....

Should we form a little group for ourselves, to make the waiting less painful?

I know that for myself, I've always had to wait until WAY after AF is due to get a BFP, when I have been pregnant in the past. So I would say, y'all, that there is definitely sill hope----for ALL of us! I think my body is slow making HcG, and I'm never sure which pregnancy tests are the best ones to use, either.

There's nothing I dislike more than a negative pregnancy test.

Good luck to you too! We could chat in this thread until we find out for sure. So maybe you just need to wait a few days and you'll get your BFP???

I'm trying to decide if AF is playing hide-and-go-seek with me. It's just crazy. I have some cramping and have been spotting some more but no real period yet. I keep expecting it but then nothing...

Plus my body is going nuts. I still have the nausea and today when I was nursing DD I started leaking like crazy. Is that a sign of a pregnancy?

Sorry to hear that! Here's some for next time around!!

Well, still no AF. The spotting that I had seems to have stopped. If AF doesn't show up by Saturday morning, I'm going to test again.

My husband and I have trouble getting pregnant (had clomid and IUI to get my now 5 yr old twins) we are ttc #3 on our own. My last period was 3 days late and I ended up having only 2 days of light spotting. This NEVER happens with me. I am always 5-6 days of heavy flow, and I NEVER skip a period.

All hpts (about 3) have been negative.....doc seems unworried about it. I still feel pms and emotional and it is almost time for ovulation again (if the 2 days was indeed a period). Lord, my funky fertility pisses me off! lol

Here's hoping we all succeed in getting a BFP soon! Good luck ladies.....

Good luck!!!! I hope you get a BFP!



Well, AF reared her ugly head today, so I'm out of the running. I was really surprised but life moves on.
