Ok hi ladies, this is going to be my last post for the week but desperately in need of some information..
here's a brief outline of whats been happening..
O'd on 6th Nov, had symptoms:- bloating, vivid dreams, sore bbs, pinching pains in ovaries and light cramping, lower back pain, aching in hips, headaches and tiredness
AF NOT due until Sat 21st..
Yesterday i had some cramping at around 3:15pm, by 3:30pm i had a sudden small 'gush' of brown cm and light pink, for the next hour when i went to the toilet whenever i wiped i saw nothing. THEN i started to bleed, it turned from brown to bright pink/reddish and became what i thought to be quite heavy. That seemed to go on through to today. It was enough that i decided to use a tampon but i've just been to the toilet now to change it and there was barely any fresh blood, just alot of brown again. and when i wiped there was barely anything there?
Combined with the fact that im not due for AF for another FULL week i'm wondering why this has happened? ive had no cramping today but had quite bad cramps last night. Normally once my period starts its in full flow until day 4 or 5 which is when it reduces to light spotting, usually in the late evening, following morning.
I'm not nieve enough to believe whats happened over the past couple of days IS definitely implantation bleeding but its just the whole thing is completely different to my usual periods.
Any ideas? Has any ladies actually HAD heavy implantation bleeding, thinking it was their period and then they went on to actually be pregnant? i've already had one lady say this has happened to her..
What do you all think??
ALREADY PLANNING FOR MY DECEMBER CYCLE! (in hoping that it is 'NORMAL' this time!!!)
Hi hun, I never had IB. I had a cold well what I thought was a cold or actually I thought I had swine flu and I was going to die turned out to be a little one. Before my mc, I really just had sore boobs but they didn't come until I had missed the I have had a normal 35 day cycle my entire life, until the mc. Its now 31 but, I never had bleeding a week before in all my craziness. I do think we stress ourselves to the highest, fingers crossed its IB. My bleeding is like yours, once it comes its not going away until its done, 3 r 4 days.
Hi Hun..I read your post a couple of times and honestly, it sounds like IB to me.
Has it stopped today? Or has the flo picked up? Is there ANY bright red to it all, or simply brown/pink in color??
All the signs you've had, including the mid cycle spotting of brown and pink, are really good signs. I get not wanting to convince yourself you ARE...but don't convince yourself you're NOT either. I'm a FIRM believer in we bring to light, what we think. If we think negatively..we bring it. So, don't convince yourself either way just yet..but remain a realist. Make sense?
I know of a few women (personal friends or family) that HAVE had heavy implantation, enough they believed it to be a full on period, and went on to have a HH9..ANYTHING is possible. For those to believe strictly black and white, are only fooling themselves.
GL to you. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread for updates and hopefully a BFP for you!
Thank you for your imput Glenoakgirl + June! I really hope it IS ib! just can't be sure yet!
Hi Jenni thankyou for reading my post! Flow seems to have completely died down today, like i say when i went to change my tampon about 45 mins ago the flow seems to have stopped, or atleast stopped enough for me to see it! And the T was just brown instead of any fresh red (sorry if tmi!) Havent had any cramping today just an uncomfortable feeling low down on my right side. I dont no what to think, just hoping she hasnt reappeared when i go to the loo next! And also like i say, normally when i come on my period she is RIGHT in your face right up until 5 days or so when she decreases to spotting, she's never on off on off on off, she is most definitely ON in all my cycles except this one.
I think you're right with the whole 'what we believe, is believed to be true' pasona, and it is a GREAT comfort to hear that you too know of women who have had heavy IB and gone on to have a healthy pregnancy. I'll keep this post updated over the day and the next couple and hopefully it (whatever IT is!) will sort itself out either way!
Just changed my T again and yet again there's brown on it with a small amount of red, but again barely anything when i wiped, there's definitely no 'flow' to it as of the moment. but im finding it hard to believe it could have been THAT heavy yesterday and still get a BFP?! Defiintely a flow yesterday but seems none today.
Sometimes there is heavy bleeding for implantation and also for the first trimester because there could be a small hemorrhage near the implantation or baby sac area. Bright red does indicate new blood but that would be from this and some women can even pass huge clots and still have a beating baby heart.... It can be resolved on its own and may be nothing to worry about and the reason its bleeding is because something is happening in there. So this may be the implantation is causing the hemmorhage to bleed. Was your last period normal in flow and time? I'd think an early miscarriage this early wouldnt be so much bleeding but its also a possibility i suppose....when I had my MC I spotted, then did nothing for a few weeks, then spotted, then nothing, then bled hard and cramped hard. All of this took about a month and a half....sorry if thats an evil thing to say- just saying all the reasons I know for bleeding not around period time...My MC was after my AF was missed though while you are still before missed AF so this wouldnt be likely.
.GL to you and I so hope its your implantation! Oh, also- I wouldnt be using tampons right now without knowing what it is just because if it is an early loss of a fertilized egg, you may cause infection with tampons...i'd use a pad this time around until you know its just your period...
I would definitely NOT use a tampon when your flow isn't consistent. It's not healthy and can be dangerous (toxic syndrome). I'm a big fan of the DivaCup, that way, you can see exactly how much and what is coming out without pumping chemicals up there (bleach etc).
IB can be different for everyone. I had IB for about 10 mins and it only came out after dtd. I was devastated because I was sure it was my period (it was quite a bit, brown and pink). But then it stopped.
Do you take your temperature? If you had a dip and your temp goes back up, it is a good sign!
