Hi everyone

I was due for my period this past sunday and I got it a day early..for me that has NEVER happened..if my cycle is 'off' it's ALWAYS late rather than too soon..

also, it's ALWAYS always always minimum 8 days long, up to 12 days and very heavy for at least 5-6 days...
so here comes this period, one day early AND only had heavy(ish) bleeding 2 days and then suddenly went to almost nothing on day 3..it's now day 5 and still just spotting...(as in maybe a dime sized drop the entire day..sorry TMI..almost dont even need a pantyliner)

could this be implantation or is it not characteristic of implantation bleeding to last this long? if it was/is implantation bleeding is it usually darker/lighter/more brown/etc than a period?

I tested on monday and it came out negative..(would have been 1 day late)

any ideas?

thx in advance.
off topic slightly... us women are nuts...we dont want to be pregnant yet we're all sad when we see a negative : or is it just me?

I have three children. We ttc each pregnancy and each time I would anxiously await the period or non-period. Because it took several attempts per pregnancy I have a bit of experience with spotting versus periods. It sounds to me like you had your period albeit a strange one for you. Spotting is not heavy like you described. I only had implantation spotting with my first pregnancy and it was definitely not like a period. With the last pregnancy, my last period before conception seemed like there was spotting for a couple days, and then the big rush came. This is not "normal" for me, but really our bodies do funny things sometimes. It definitely had me hanging on for a couple of days though.

From what I remember w/ implantation bleeding, and I have been pregnant 4 times. The flow was more of a "panty liner" flow. For me, it was also not heavy enough for anything other than a liner. I think it was light and brown like for about 3 days.

But I hope I'm wrong in your case..

I've had implantation bleeding twice, and both times it was light spotting. In fact with this pregnancy it was actually just two little spots of bloody mucous when I wiped and a couple of hours of cramps. Last time (a previous MC, I didn't have implantation bleeding with my son, so I guess it doesn't happen every time), it was a day of spotting and then it went away completely.

Spending all of my money and time on this wild, wild life.
