Fingers crossed! I don't have enough experience to be of much help, but I have heard of several people having light bleedings even later than us, and they were fine Let us know how everything goes.

I think maybe they also aren't taking in to cosideration your long cycles . If someone has a 28 day cycle they typically conceive on day 14 and doctors typically go by the first day of the LMP to determine due date . If you have a 40 day cycle that usually means you didn't O until like 26 days or so . So you may be 5-6 weeks by the time you miss a period and the doctor would consider you 5-6 weeks but really you just implanted like 2 weeks prior to that maybe . I'm sure when you get an ultrasound it would show the baby being a week or two less than what they estimated because your cycles are longer than average . I hope all of this makes sense , I'm kind of just rambling lol. But try not to worry is what I'm trying to say

There should be an edit option at the bottom of your post.

I know it's easier said than done but try not to panic . I would call your doctor in the morning and go in for an ultrasound or blood work but I have had to do that in both of my previous pregnancies as well and everything was fine for some reason I always spotted after my bfp and they said it was late implantation bleeding . Some people don't expel the blood so quickly like others . But I agree that as long as it's not bright red and heavy you shouldn't worry . Mine only lasted one or two trips to the bathroom when I wiped and then it was done .
Praying for you hun ! Keep us updated !

My cycles are 31 or 32 days, so yes, there is a 3-4 day difference from the average cycle. I have my first appointment on January 6th, at 9+6 weeks, so we'll see what they say then I have read about a few other people who also have very low HCG levels, so maybe it could just be that. One woman wrote that with all three of her children she had such low HCG levels that she didn't get a positive pregnancy test until 2-3 months.

In my last pregnancy I spotted after DTD twice in the first tri, once around 5 wreks and once ariund 8 or 9 weeks. I asked my OB and she said a little pink spotting is okay, your cervix has more bloodflow and can get irritated with sex. Both times we waited close to a week before DTD again and it only happened those two times. DD is a healthy 18 month old now! I also worried because I had a MC a couple of months before I got pregnant with DD.

BTW, I am due August 4th!
