    Hi girls

    I'm 11DPO today and have been experiencing brown/pink cm for the past 4 days. I think it is af about to start but just wondered if anybody else had experienced this and had a more positive outcome?? I've never had this early spotting before but I'm having mild af cramps and I'm sure it must be the witch.

    Any feedback would be great :)

    The first month i was pregnant with my first baby, I had what i just assumed was a weird period. Normally my periods last 3-4 days. They are very heavy the first day then moderate the 2nd and 3rd. This period was very light and more brownish and only lasted a couple of days. The next month i missed my period entirely so i took a test and i was pregnant and had been since the previous month. My friend also had the same brownish very light period when she was pregnant with both of her kids. It was actually the first sign she was pregnant with her second. From what i hear this is pretty common actually. I would wait a couple days and test. Good luck!!

    I'm in the same boat.
    15 dpo. Started brown spotting/bleeding yesterday. Using a pad and seeing it when I wipe. AF was due yesterday. Usually I get some brown spotting but it's only hours before my AF shows and on first day of AF it is usually bright red and cramps are horrendous. I've had no cramps but am contuining to have this brown bleeding but quite light (esp in comparison to regular period).
    When did your friend get her BFP? Did she have to wait until the spotting/bleeding disappeared completely? Tests are so expensive that I don't want to waste one, but I also hate waiting lol.

    I think she got her BFP about 3-5 days after the spotting the stopped. My understanding is that your body does not start making the hormone that the pregancy test detects until after implantation. THe bleeding is what is usually referred to as breakthrough bleeding or implantation bleeding which happens while the egg is implanting. So you would need to wait a few days for the hormone to build up enough to be detected. I would wait at least 3 days before testing. But i'm no doctor!!

    Yes. I spotted for 9 days when I was pregnant with Holly, and it was all colours. I got my bfp about 3 days into the spotting :) I had another pregnancy which sadly ended in MC, and again, I got spotting when I got my bfp. The spotting had nothing to do with the MC though, I think it's just normal for me. Good luck! x x

    Hi all,

    I had to just pop my head in here and share my story.

    For the last 3 years or so I have experienced what I affectionately call the “slow burn” – usually a week before AF I start getting brown / black discharge (ewww) – enough to merit a pad and annoy the life out of me.

    Always, always segued into full flow, and a close 2 days relationship with Nurofen.

    This month has been different though – I had the same brown spotting for the last week or so, and it miraculously just stopped 2 days ago. Tested last night and even with 11pm pee I got an instant BFP. First time pregnancy so of course am super excited.

    I just wanted to confirm that brown spotting can most definitely lead to a BFP!

    Good luck everyone!

    xx

    Congrats!!!!!!

    I have a similar question....sorry tmi coming.... 8dpiui after BDing I had pink cm when wiping. There was nothing after that until this am 10dpiui. When wiping this morning I had brown blood. I am never early and to me it seems like the good sign I've been hoping for but testing bfn... Reading the above posts has helped, but I'm wondering if anyone experienced this.

    I have been having this brown discharge since 8dpo too. I'm now 12dpo and still got it. It's so confusing! I've never had this before and thought it could be IB. Did a cheapie test yesterday and got a very faint + but did a frer today and got a -

    No idea what's going on!

    It's very frustrating... We've been trying for almost 2 years and have been with an RE since Feb. This will be my final IUI before moving on to IVF. I decided a few weeks ago that I want to take a two month break before moving to IVF just to get myself relaxed and be in the best possible mind for it. I would LOVE if this month did the trick and I didn't have to do that!!!!!

    Oh the waiting game. I would thing the faint + would be a good thing... you can get false -'s but i've never heard of a false +!!! Good luck. I'm crossing my fingers for you.

    Congrats Lotsababies... no luck for me yet... spotting seems to have stopped but still BFN this am (11dpiui). I'm pretty sure it would have been positive by now if I was.

    Thanks ladies! I keep POAS because I just can't believe it :) 3 more positives yesterday: one in the morning, one in the afternoon and a digital in the evening. I think I'm now satisfied that our squishy face is there!

    Hoping: Sorry to hear about the bfn. I'm sure it will happen for you! Your in my thoughts!

    Commie: Thinking of you as well! New cycle, new chance! Fx that it is your month!

    Hi :) I was just wondering if the light period you had was heavy enough for a pad/tampon? I've been having brown discharge for the last 4 or 5 days and have been using a panty liner but I only see the discharge when I wipe (sorry tmi). I'm expecting af 2moro but am keeping my fingers crossed as always x
