Hi, we're ttc our 2nd and here's what's going on:

I o'd this month, we bd'd.
6dpo I have some cramping, I'm hoping it's implantation.
9dpo I get a faint positive but also start having some rust colored spotting/ bleeding. It wasn't very heavy, mini pad was fine and mostly when I wiped. I figure it's either implantation bleeding or my period has come 5 days early (which never happens).
10dpo still a faint positive, still bleeding. There are some small clots in the toilet after I pee.
11dpo darker positive, bleeding is almost gone
12dpo - 15dpo (today) dark positive, no bleeding.

What's bothering me in addition to the bleeding is that other than a few twinges, my breasts are not sore. That with the bleeding has me doubting that I'm really pregnant (or at least that this one will stick).

If I call my obgyn I think they'll offer to do a couple rounds of blood work to see how rapidly the hcg is rising.

What do you think/ would you do?

You're pregnant Patronus joy.gifCongrats!! Spotting in early pregnancy is very common and very normal. And other signs and symptoms vary by woman and by pregnancy, like sore breasts. I'd call for blood work, just because that's me. Good luck to you!!

I experienced some spotting a few days after I would have gotten my period with this pregnancy. It went on for a couple of days when I went in to my primary care doctor's office. They did two hcg tests. I found it to be reassuring.
