I'm new to these threads but it seems there are some very wise women out there that hopefully can help me! I'm 24 years old, mother of 3, and am experiencing pregnancy symptoms. Last month I got AF between the 22nd-24th. I'm usually not SUPER regular but I can pretty much narrow it down to a week. So I started spotting late Sunday afternoon (18th) very light and sometimes brown, off and on. It completely stops at night and is really light in the morning, then a little heavier in the afternoon. I know this is not AF because mine are super heavy and painful (sorry TMI!). But I have been doing this spotting off and on through today (21st). I cramped a little bit early Monday morning and thought I was going to wake up to AF but nothing. I took a pregnancy test Monday afternoon and I swore I saw a plus sign but thought I was going crazy. I took a clear blue this morning and it was a BFN. But I have read that the digital tests are not as accurate as the others. I have spotted before AF made her grand entrance but not for this many days, and usually accompied with bad cramps. I'm really not having another other symptoms. I did have IB with my youngest, I can't remember for how long though. What should I do? Should I rule out pregnancy? Or take another test this weekend? Thoughts?!

Definitely take another test in a few days! Digital tests dont tend to be as sensitive as the line tests, but if you got a faint + then I'd call it a bfp are you actively ttc? Let us know what the end result is good luck! Xx

Thank you so much for your reply! We are not actively ttc but would be thrilled if we have another!! I will post again this weekend.
