Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
14/10/2013 at 19:14
My fiance and I are trying for a baby and have been since December 2012. My periods have been sort of regular (a few days late a few times) but this month they have confused me! I started bleeding one day before my AF but it was really really light...it lasted three days and stopped. I tested twice during these days and both tests were negative.
Today I have started to bleed again and the blood is dark brown with clots and quite heavy.
Is there a chance that I could have had an implantation bleed and be pregnant. I'm still so confused by this
I appreciate any help!

Hi Jen, if you're bleeding heavily with clots then I don't think that's a good sign of being pg unless you're having a CP, in which case you're better off not knowing as they're SO common.
Sorry I know that's not what you want to hear! You could test again to be sure as it could be that you are! The human body can be so weird/annoying when it comes to fertility. Before my mc I was bleeding a 'medium' amount(!) and my dr told me she's seen women bleed a lot less and lose their baby, and she's seen women bleed much more and go on to have healthy babies. So really there is no 'rule'.
Have you tested today? xxx

No I haven't tested today...I daren't!
I've just checked again...its not heavy heavy..and its mostly a brown colour. Forgive me but what is a CP?

CP is chemical pregnancy....you should never know u had one as you'd have af as normal (maybe a little late). They're the reason I resist the urge to test early as you could get your hopes up with a BFP and then lose it right away.
Brown means it's old blood, no idea what that means in your situation other than it's better than red! Maybe test tomorrow with fmu?
Good luck! xx

Oh I see.
Well I don't know what to think. My periods have been pretty bang on...just this has really confused me.
I'll test in the morning and see what happens.
Thanks hun xx

Sorry to hear you got a bfn
I had a weird cycle like that the month before I got a bfp (ended in mc). Your body is being naughty and playing tricks on you! That's one of the many problems with ttc, you notice everything weird which you probably wouldn't think twice about when not ttc.
If you bleed for longer or heavier than normal maybe go see your doc.
FX you get a bfp soon!! xxx
