Today I started bleeding, at 9 dpo ? I'm not sure what to think to be honest, my period isn't due until the 3rd (Thurs). It isn't my usual period, it is more of a brownish red, no clots, no thick flow like usual and the cramps are rare, when they do occur it is very mild. I am usually one with horrid periods! Not sure if it is AF or implantation bleeding or what =/ 99.9% of the time, my period is on time also. Any thoughts? It isn't really spotting, it is a bit more than spotting but not my usual heavy flow and like I said, it is at 9 dpo.

This kind of thing is only clear in hindsight, I think. It could be either, though if it's unusual for you then a test might be in order in a couple days. Good luck!

I am having the same thing! Mine went from spotting, to light flow for a couple of hours then back to spotting. Mine was so early and SO unlike regular period. I spotted for 4 days, brown and light pink. I have tested every morning with a $ test, but BFN every time. I think it must have been some kind of weird early AF for me. If it wasn't my AF, then AF would be due in two days, so I guess I will test after that just to be sure. Probably testing way to early anyway. 


Do you usually have irregular periods? 


Unfortunately, IB seems to be different for every woman, so who knows? Some say it is only a few spots of blood, some say they bled for ten days. You and I are in that cruel waiting game right now! We will just have to wait it out and keep testing. I hope we get to be bump buddies!


Good luck!!! Keep us updated!!!

I'm having the same thing, I think. This is my first time TTC, and I got my AF after trying on the 28, 29, and 30 of last month (march). Weirdest thing though is that I have this bleeding now (with small clots, sorry for TMI) in between periods. That's never happened to me before, everrrrr. I got a period and BFN's, but this is still strange. I wonder what's up! If you gals figure it out, let me know. And best of luck to you both!
