So confused. Decidual bleeding?


I'm not quit sure I know what's going on. I'm almost positive I had implantation bleeding on the first of this month (very light brown discharge for less than 2 days). On the 6th (not supposed to start til the 8th) I started bleeding. Almost exactly like AF except started out a tad heavy instead of gradually increasing. But, after about an hour of bleeding I started to cramp. Very similar to menstrual cramps but moderatly stronger. They were a bit uncomfortable but not like "bring you to your knees" pain. I'd say on a scale of 1-10 it was about a 4 or 5. Anyways, I was just wondering...is this a bad sign? Has anyone had decidual bleeding with moderate cramps and still carried on with a healthy baby? How long did it last and how bad were your cramps? Should I avoid sex while I'm bleeding? Thank you all SO very much for taking the time to read this and any information is helpful!

P.S.
I have only taken 2 HPT and both were negative. I have many symptoms of being preggo though. Gassy, moody, acid reflux....I've even noticed one breast has grown quit larger than the other. Weird.

I forgot to mention my moderate cramps lasted about 6 hours or so. Now it's just very minimal cramping if any at all but still bleeding. Heavy flow. No big clots just little chunks when I pee (sorry, tmi). Took a pregnancy test this morning. Still negative. But, like I said, not supposed to start until the 8th. Also, still getting pinch-y cramps every now and then. Nothing like period cramps. Sorry for rambling. Please reply. I'm driving myself nuts.

I have no idea whats going on but just wanted to say I hope this is your bfp and just hasn't shown up yet. If you are still getting negatives in a few days time call your doctor to have a blood test.

I have never had implantation bleeding myself but I would say avoid sex while bleeding just incase things are being a bit delicate.

Thank you so much for your support. I hope I find out what's going on soon. I'm an emotional wreck at times . I'll keep this thread up dated no matter what the news might be.

I agree with Lozdi. I myself didn't have implantation bleeding either, but I've read that's one of the first symptoms for many people. Keeping my FX for you! Wishing you a BFP!

Thank you Karin! Your support means alot to me. The bleeding has died down quit a bit and there's no cramping at all anymore. Although I'm not having anymore pregnancy symptoms I haven't lost all hope. I will take another pregnancy test in the morning. Finger crossed!

New here but just letting you know your not alone in the confusion. I am definantly confused myself and reading all the forums isn't helping much.

Let me give you my story. So back in Jan. I had my normal AF lasted 2 days then in Feb. I had a very unusual 6 day bleeding... never enough even for a pantyliner but I just assumed was my AF even though was 5 days early. I took a HPT on Feb. 29 and got a BFP. Then 2 days ago I started a light bleed with little clots but no pain or cramps. Nothing to signify a MC so I am waiting it out having read about decidual bleeding. I still have morning sickness, frequent urination, sore boobs, and still smell EVERYTHING! So I'm hoping it's decidual and thinking I might be further along than I initially thought as I also found out implantation bleeding can last 2-10 days. Waiting on Dr. Appt. On Tuesday to find out for sure what's going on.

Any advice be helpful and be glad your not in these slippers. GL and lots of BD.

Your 2 day bleed definately sounds like implantation. I had the same thing a week before my period is due. I hope everything goes well for you. It would be awesome if you could up date after your Dr. appointment.

So, I've decided to wait a take a home pregnancy test when I stop bleeding. I'm even more confused now though. I still have very light bleeding. My symptoms have dulled alot or have just completely gone away. I'm just slightly gassy now and occasionally feel the slightest bit of nausea when I smell certain things. But, I feel like I'm having round ligament pain. It's kind of a sharp tightening pain in my lower abdomen and in the crease between my vagina and thighs. I dunno....I guess I want to be pregnant so bad I could be imagining it. I honestly think with cramping and bleeding like I did I lost the baby if I was pregnant. I'm not sure what to think anymore. I still take a pregnancy test just to make sure though.

Sorry to crash your thread....How many days before/after af was due did you test??

My AF was due the 28th Feb on 23rd I started light spotting as you described, it lasted until 28th then nothing, though I am cramping. I'm holding off testing as my AF has been late in the past.

I'm driving myself crazy at the moment! I don't have many "symptoms" of either AF or pregnancy!!

I tested once 4 days before AF and then again 2 days before (wasn't bleeding yet when I tested). I started bleeding 2 days before AF was due. This is the first time I have ever been through this. I almost certain I was (or am) pregnant. I can just feel it. It's rough. I can't sleep.
