BFP at 17dpo. At 20dpo and getting implantation bleeding?

Postby scharpster » Wed Sep 12, 2012 7:40 am

Anyone else get implantation bleeding late? I am concerned because this is right around the time I should get my period. Not normal blood though...it was dark, eggy and had bits of bright white in it? Hope this is...I have waited for this bfp for so long! Hope someone can relate. Have taken several tests and all have the faint 2nd line. Also took a digital and said "pregnant".

Hey Hun I haven't had the same but my friend did. She had bleeding in the exact day af was due that was dark with some oink in it. She hadn't tested but did when the bleeding stopped. She now had a happ healthy 3 week old! I think 1 in 4 can get bleeding during pregnancy and it be absolutely healthy!! Xx

Thank you, Maz. That means a lot to me. Not something I was really expecting :( I am doing okay this morning. Yesterday was tough. Back to work, so hopefully that will help take my mind off things. I really appreciate your concern :)

I know it's taken a long time for you to get to that point but you also know now that you can get pregnant.

And I don't know if you're in the mind frame of ttc again but I've read that after an early mc you can be very fertile the next cycle. Please ignore that comment if you feel it's too soon but if you're ready it may be something to bear in mind.

I'm sorry for what you've been through and really hope you get all your dreams come true soon x x x

Hey Maz,

That thought has already crossed my mind :) My dh and I talked about it last night and although the dr recommended we wait 2 cycles, we are going to try again. I ovulated really early last month, so I could reach high fertility starting Monday if this cycle is anything like last time. It is a huge switch of events and I have to get myself in the mindset of eating healthy and doing everything I did before. I have also read that you become super fertile. I have added baby aspirin to my regimine so hopefully that helps this time. Thank you for your follow up, you are very sweet!

I know in the same situation I would try again straight away. Its also good that you and dh are on the same mindset and I really hope the super fertility is true for you. My friend had an mc at the same time along as you and she's just decided to ttc again, her dr said its fine so don't worry about the dr saying 2 cycles.

I really hope it works out for you, keep me updated, pm me if you want to vent I'm a good listener! xx

Yeah, I've read mixed reviews about it, but I think I was early enough along (4 weeks) that my body probably didn't go through as major of a change as someone further along. I'll definitely keep you updated! You're a sweetie. How about you?? When's your bfp coming? :D

I think you're right, you were early enough along for the hormones to be out of your system pretty quick so I reckon get bding!!!

I had my bfp 2 days ago, but rather than being excited I'm terrified of something going wrong. But if it's going to happen there's nothing I can do about it!!

GL Hun I'll def be stalking you!!!xxx

Thank you so much! I will keep my fingers crossed for you also! Is this your first bfp? This is the first time my dh is actually excited to bd 5 days in a row again lol! I think it is good for him cause he knows we can benefit from the fruits of our labor so to speak.

Thank you!! This is my first bfp, had suspected luteal phase defect but drs in uk refused to do anything until I'd been TTc a year.. took a whole host of herbal supplements like vitex, red raspberry leaf and vit b6. Really believed this gave me my bfp!!

:rofl: 5 days in a row? I think the boys benefit from TTc more than women do!! My friend who was in a similar situation to you had ewcm today and very very excited!!

What was your diet like when TTc? What did you do different to normal? I'm trying to o'd on fruit and veg as much as possible!!xx

Diet was very strict. Cut out all sugars/caffeine/junk food. Basically ate pure wholesome food (no pre-packaged anything). I've also drank a smoothie each morning and as an evening treat since I was cutting out sugars for the past 3 months or so. Loaded with good stuff and super YUMMY. - here is the link

I slid back slightly after I got my bfp (indulged in french fries and ribs) because I realized how harsh I was being on myself. It honestly makes me feel much better though eating pure food. Nothing wrong with O'ding on fruit and veggies! Your baby loves it, i'm sure!

Ooh looks yummy!! I trained for a marathon in 2010 and lived on smoothies as part of my training regime. I will have to give it a try!
Don't be too strict on yourself diet wise but then something obviously worked last cycle so maybe the smoothies the secret ingredient!!
