Implantation bleeding? 8DPO; Light Pink; Can it be light bleeding for a couple days?


I'm 8DPO and just noticed that I'm spotting. Is this implantation bleeding, and does it mean I might be pregnant?

Sorry for the vague and probably (many) repeated question, but I'm freaking out! My AF never starts light - it always starts as medium to heavy flow (sorry TMI), so I'm excited if this is actually implantation bleeding!

Thanks for the help!

ETA: The bleeding is like spotting - very very light but still reaching my panty liner. And I had weird colored CM on my underwear also. AF is not due for two weeks - am I getting an early period, or implantation bleeding? I hope it's not AF, because that would mean my LP is 7 days!

ETA2: The blood is VERY LIGHT pink and it's light bleeding now, not spotting. Is this normal? I've never gotten a period this light (it always starts heavy/medium flow), and my periods are never this light pink. I read somewhere it's supposed to be just "a couple of drops" but this is light bleeding.

Thanks.

IB can be different for everyone.

Time will tell. Fingers crossed!

It's probably not an early miscarriage as it wouldn't have had long enough to implant yet, that ususally takes several days and doesn't usually happen until 7 dpo (give or take).

It could be IB or a weird cycle month. Try not to think too much about it in case af shows up, then you won't be as disappointed if she does.

Good luck and I hope it's IB!

Thank you!

It's not AF, I don't think, because the bleeding is lighter today than it was last night, and it's still extremely pinkish. I am REALLY hoping this little guy sticks! I want a baby so badly. DH is very nervous since I told him about it last night. I hope he gets excited like I am, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up in case it's a weird cycle thing. I read on a website I can take a pregnancy test in 4-5 days, so until then, I'll try to focus on other stuff (BUT IT'S SO HARD!).

Thank you guys for your help. I really appreciate it.

No prob.

I'm with you. I'm 8dpo and had light spotting, mixture pink and brown since yesterday. Hoping it is IB but unlike you I have been known to spot before. I had a chemical last cycle. Really hoping I'm gonna get my sticky bean this cycle.

Good luck!! Fingers crossed for you. Keep us posted.

Hi ~ I'm also 8dpo as of today and I've been spotting light pink since yesterday. It was the same way with my first PG. I'm obviously not wanting to get my hopes up but I NEVER spot in between periods. I'm forcing my self to wait until AF is officially due to test. It's going to be a lONG 6 days!!!!! Anything new for you..are you preggers?

I'm too afraid to test, I'm waiting until at least April 22. If the first bleeding was cervical from the , and the other couple drops of blood that just stopped after 12 hours or so and never reached my pantyliner was implantation bleeding, that's how long I'd have to wait anyway.

I did get a weird positive looking test but it looked invalid so I scrapped it.

I have diluted urine so much that I am afraid of wasting a test if my urine isn't concentrated enough anyway. I mean, my throat hurts ALL THE TIME and I feel parched so I need to drink fluids but this means I get like clear pee (sorry TMI!).

I am encouraged by your story though Thank you. I NEVER GET SPOTTING BETWEEN PERIODS! Ever. And my temp is starting to drop in little segments....it's going toward the upper border, today at 98.0, once it dips below 97.7 with no AF, does that mean I'm probably pregnant? Or not?

THANK YOU!
Lots of baby dust to you!
