Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Today is about day 21 of a 28 day cycle. I didn't do any ovulation tests but I'd assume I ovulated around day 14. Assumption based on changes in discharge and a slight lower abdominal pain. Last night I was slightly alarmed to see a pinkish stained discharge with a tiny dot of red. I was alarmed on account of the fact I had the coil removed originally because of irregular bleeding. The coil was removed almost 3 months ago and I haven't experienced any irregular bleeding since and my AF has even been a shorter 5 days opposed to the 8 days on the coil(yes I still had periods for the whole 6 years).
The colour is still there (slightly) when I wipe but it's as if there isn't any discharge(is this tmi??). I'd never heard of implantation bleeding until I recently started reading these forums (naive to say the least considering I have 4 children already ), I can't even recall if I experienced any with other pregnancies because it's not something i was aware of so wouldn't have noted it.
Anyway, could these be an early sign?? feeling a little sickly but I think that's possibly in my head(wanting to believe I might be ). I was never actually sick with my other children but with the 4th one I did feel sick and not quite my best from the minute of falling pregnant I would assume as it was the sickness that made me question when my period was due and prompted me to do a test.
Everything I read on the internet contradicts itself which is not helpful...
Am I hoping too much and reading too much into things?? I'm going to be a nervous wreck until I am able to test

Ooooooooooohhhhh good luck SJ.
It could well be implantation bleed that your experiencing - as I believe its just something you get when you wipe etc...
You can use a First Response up to 6 days before your period is due?!
Wishing you lots and lots of luck

Good luck! Fingers crossed!
I totally agree with your internet comment! I looked on a few sites to try to get a bit more info in the past and came away more confused! So many sites tell you different things!

Sorry, I don't think I can help either!!! Although I had period pains with both pregnancies at about week 2 or 3, and assumed that I wasn't pregnant! I also had a minor implantation bleed as it was as you say!
Good Luck though!!

It's been a little while since I ventured in here, work and stuff got in the way.
I did an early test which was negative and was just considering doing another, because I was late, when my period arrived ... so it isn't to be this month...
Just going to read through the boards and catch up with how everyone else is doing.
