Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I'm new but have been a reader for a while now... I've just picked up the courage to ask some questions myself!
So basically, I have been having some really strange spotting this month. After BDing in my fertile phase, I began spotting 5 days later, exactly 1 week before my period was due! This never ever happens.
I thought this could be IB as it was so light, very light brown or very light pink and only there when I wiped and was coming and going mainly after a BM (sorry TMI).
Today is a week later and the supposed start date of AF, I have 28 day cycles that very rarely change but I'm still having the same spotting. A few tiny cramps but nothing like I normally get... normally they're pretty bad and make my thighs numb and I can't get enough feminax in my body!
I've taken a HPT this afternoon after thinking wth, it was a BFN, morrisons own brand though, not FRER.
So I was just wondering, has anyone ever had this happen to them before and end up with a BFP?
It's for my first after TTC for 3 months...

Hi I'll be thinking of you. I'm TTC my first (husbands 4th he has three from previous marriage so I know it's not him if we don't haha) and had a mmc and D&C in June when I lost baby at three months along. With my Angel Baby I had no IB, but I did feel O and about 5 days later I felt a sharp pinch of implantation. Baby was exactly where I thought she would be on the U/S 7 weeks after that. So your timing sounds good! this month I felt O and what I think was implantation 7 days later and I have a light bleed now (like a light AF) for a day and a half (5 days before my expected period). Who knows for me my cycles have been wacky since the miscarriage and a tyroid issue. Just popping in the let you know your timing sounds good and that sounds like IB to me. Of course your hormones could be weird this month too and it could be a weird AF but.....after three months of TTC with all these good signs to me I would put money on you being pregnant versus not. Hope you are my friend! Good luck. :) please keep us posted.

Thank you so much for your reply, it's definitely made me feel less like I'm going mad!
Im so so sorry to hear about your angel baby, that is so sad. I really hope that you get your BFP this month, I'll be thinking of you.
I will, I think I'm going to try and hold off testing when/if this bleeding stops. It's just so unusual for me, my heavy periods are usually unmistakeable for anything else! Full of clots, everything.
My boobs are fuller and tender to touch and my nipples that are normally flat are definitely more pointy. I'm also off my food and feeling sick a lot too. But other than that, I have crazy obvious symptoms which worries me...
I will most likely cave in and test early but, I'm scared at the same time. I really don't want to see a BFN this time. Bodies are crazy huh?
Please keep me posted on your progress, I'd love to see a happy ending for you this time!

Thank you so much for such a lovely message back. You have been more supportive in this message than most of my own family :)
i I tested a few times last week but BFNs. My periods are a bit wacky now but they are usually heasy as in a tampon every two few hours. I used about 4 tampons total in 5 days this time so we shall see. (Sorry if that is TMI!!). The light period was reddish pink then at times brown. I keep having dreams about two pink lines. The only other time I had that dream was the night before I found out I was pregnant last time. I had what felt like ovulation cramps and a pinch on the right side then a week later a sharp instant pinch on the same side same place so I'm cautiously hopeful. i share all this to say you are not the only one feeling like your going mad - I do too!! How are you faring any updates? If my timing is correct I had a BFN 12dpo and haven't tested sinve and today is 17dpo. Again huge assumptions my timing is right I'm not charting but we BD every other day regardless for the most part so all dates would be covered. Fingers crossed for you that you have a wonderful update!!
