Implantation bleeding or spotting??

Postby laf1015 » Fri Aug 23, 2013 2:50 pm

Help! I am new here and I decided I needed to make a post because I'm driving myself nuts!! So I've been off the pill since mid-May, charting my cycles (regular, 28-29 days), and according to the charts my ovulation for this month was 18th-22nd. Hubby & I did the BD 5x since the 14th and my CM was heavier on the 20th & 21st. AF is due 8/31 or 9/1. I've been feeling normal but just a little while ago went to the bathroom and wiped a little blood. I used to have spotting before AF when I was on the pill, but since I've stopped the pill my last spotting was in June. What I just noticed today looked different than the spotting in the past, so I'm going crazy, could it be implantation bleeding or could it just really be spotting??? Is it too soon to take a HPT since AF isn't due for another week? I don't want to mention it to hubby because he's already disappointed that we haven't conceived yet (well we both are)...I don't want to get his hopes up. What should I do!

first off...deep breath!
if ur cycles have been pretty steady it does seem a lil early to be spotting. but also not alot of ppl experience ib, even for how much it is talked about. it also seems early for ib. it could be o spotting. bt tht is also very rare.
if u bd recently tht could also cause some bleeding.
if u do want to do an hpt try waiting till the morning with fmu, u will get a more accurate result, but if u think u o-ed this week its still way early for an hpt to pick up anything.

so i know how hard it is, but just try relaxing. and try not to worry.

Whew. Thanks for your thoughts! Last BD was 2 days ago & I never bleed from that so I don't think that's the cause. Guess I just have to play the waiting game... :(
