    How long is your cycle normally?

    I'm afraid I'm still fairly new so don't really have much advice, but it could have been an ovulation bleed or possibly an implantation bleed. It sounds positive though :)

    Can't really answer that without an idea of your cycle length and luteal phase.Are you currently charting and do you have a history of irregular cycles? I've had bleeding similar to how you described and it turned out to be a sign of AF coming a little behind schedule. The only way you're going to be certain is by taking a test! I hope it's the BFP that you're looking for!!! Lot's of baby dust to you hun!

    If you were due on around about the 5-8th March (remember that February is a short month and so it would be later in March anyway) I would think that you would be getting positive tests by now as you would about three weeks late.

    I would be inclined to say that the bleeding was your AF - although even that would have been two weeks late? Are your periods usually light?

    Have you recently come off birth control?

    Do a test, you sound as though you've missed AF this month. If you get a BFN and in a weeks time you still haven't seen AF test again, if it's another BFN go to the doctor and ask for a blood test.

    Fingers crossed for your BFP!

    But didn't you say that you have tested already and it was bfn?

    I would say try another test if you have one but I would have thought that a test would detect it by now if you were pregnant - you would be something like 30dpo.

    For some it takes a while to show up.

    If you get another BFN when you do your next test go to the doctor and see what they advise.

    If your cycle is usually about 30 days (which it would be if you have your period on about the same date every month) then it is likely that you usually ovulate round about day 16 of your cycle (everyone is different but the average ovulation is 14 days before your period). Implantation would then occur about 7-10 days after ovulation. This means that implantation would have been prior to when your period was due. By my reckoning from what you have said, this would have been at the end of February/early March. To have it 6 days ago doesn't seem to fit with what you have said about your cycle. Some women do spot during pregnancy though so even though it doesn't sound like implantation it could be normal spotting.

    As I said in my other post, I would have thought a test would detect a pregnancy by now however. They are usually pretty good from the day of your missed period. Yours was almost three weeks ago and so if you were pregnant, it is most likely that a test would detect it by now. Having said that - some women do not get bfps for some time.

    Are you usually regular? Have you done anything different this cycle (come off bc, taken new vitamins, herbal remedies)? These can all interfere with our cycles. As can stress, worry, etc.?

    If you continue to be concerned, it might be worth going to the drs for a check up.
