Implantation bleeding or is something wrong with me?

Hi all!  I just turned 42.  I was pregnant a year ago and miscarried early.  I have still been trying to ttc naturally before getting fertility treatments.  My period is usually like clockwork usually starting light then heavy (with lots of cramps) for 1 or 2 days then light, and it usually lasts for 4 or 5 days, but this month I'm kind of baffled.  I was due to have my period on 10/31/17.  I started spotting on 11/1/17 with no cramps. Spotting with small bits of clots on 11/2/17 through 11/5/17.  11/6/17- 11/9/17 the bleeding got heavier with small clots.  Then on 11/9/17 around 2:00pm the bleeding stopped.  Woke up this morning with no blood on my tampon.  Then I felt a small cram around 11:00 a.m. and checked and the bleeding is back when I wipe.  I am back to spotting.  I've been poas e-bay cheapie daily since 10/30/17 BFN.  But since yesterday I haven't POAS (pee on a stick (i.e. pregnancy test)) but I will do it when I get home since the bleeding is back again.  I have been having lots of nightmares where I am mean and impatient to friends and family members, but in real life I am not this way. Also, a couple days ago I dreamt I was in a room full of babies in Tupperware type containers, some were dead and some were barely alive.  I was either a doctor or scientist in a white lab coat.  It was very odd. I woke up extremely cold one night and rolled over to my left side and felt better and when I woke up I was warm and very sweaty.  I've been having diarrhea daily after I eat and dizzy if I don't eat.  Last night I had some pain in my upper abdomen, like soreness, then this morning I woke up extremely nauseated, like I needed to vomit, but I didn't.  I felt well after I had breakfast, but I still feel fatigue.  Am I having a spotty period or is this implantation bleeding?  Thank you all and baby dust to all

Supposed miscarriage but BFP 2 weeks later!


Ok so 2 years after a miscarriage I finally got a BFP.  It was totally unexpected, but I’ll do another blog about that one.  2 words Dong Quai.  If you miscarried and haven’t been able to conceive then you still have tissue in your uterus.  If your uterus doesn’t fully empty then you won’t get pregnant.  Taking dong quai will cleanse your uterus.  I also took Vitamin C along with the dong quai.  Some people use this to cause a miscarriage, but I used it to cause contractions in my uterus and when my period came it fully emptied it.  Therefore, cleansing it.  I took it for one week then another week through my period and then another week, then stopped.  Then I got my BFP after trying for 2 weeks after a miscarriage.  So September 23rd I was getting cramps and feeling very pms’y.  I thought my period is coming anytime now.  I thought why not just take a prego test.  I took the old digital one that tells you how many weeks you are.  It took awhile while I showered, then when I checked it, it said, “pregnant 1-2 weeks”.  I was shocked.  I called my DH in the bathroom and he too was surprised.  I took an EPT and got a faint line so we told friends and family.  Then a couple days later I was feeling really stressed at work.  Then cold.  I felt this the last time I had a miscarriage.  Feeling extremely cold.  So I took another digital but they don’t sell the kind that gives you the weeks anymore and low and behold it said, “not pregnant”.  I was so upset.  I started spotting, then going through the miscarriage.  So on September 30th I was bleeding heavily and passing clots.  I called in sick to work for 2 days because the cramps and pain were bad and I also felt depressed.  My work called on the second day asking for a doctor’s note (total jerks) so I knew I had to go into Urgent Care.  So I went in and the doctor said my hcg level was 19.  She wanted to do a papsmear.  I really don’t know why, but she wanted to.  So she put the clamp in me and as she was click clicking it hurt so bad I yelped and started bawling.  I told her it hurt really bad and she said I was passing a large tissue.  She said I was not done miscarrying.  She said I was not done at all.  She wanted me to go in for an ultrasound at an obgyn’s office but all offices were booked.  I just wanted my doctor’s note for work and I left.  I passed more clots and bled for about 2 more weeks.  During the time of the miscarriage DH and I did not have sex.  I wanted to clear everything out before we resumed.  Around October 15th I started having very sore breasts (pregnant sore breasts feeling).  I thought wow my hormones are wacky I usually get this sore only when I’m pregnant.  I took advil but it didn’t help.  Then on October 18th I had pain on my side, like my ovary area or side stich.  I couldn’t tell but it was naggy.  I thought I was ovulating so I went home and took an ovulation stick test and threw in a prego stick test in the small urine cup too. Low and behold both were positive but the prego test was 2 dark lines, the ovulation was medium faint.  So I busted out 2 dollar store prego tests and right away 2 dark lines on both.  I showed DH and he said it had to be left over tissue.  I was in shock and I believe he was too.  So the next day I call the obgyn’s office and they too were in disbelief.  They asked me to go to a lab and give my blood so they can see what my hcg level was.  My hcg level was 3510, nurse said I was 5-6 weeks prego.  Can you believe that?!  They asked if it was a new pregnancy since my levels were at 19 on October 2nd when I went to urgent care.  I said, it couldn’t be a new pregnancy because I haven’t had sex since September before the miscarriage.  She said it could have been a twin and I miscarried a twin.  She said I was pregnant and they will know the exact weeks when I go in for the earliest appointment on November 3rd.  Ugh I have to wait until then.  But I am thrilled!!!!  Has this happened to anyone?  Thanks for reading J
