if implantation bleeding occurred when did it happen?
 
im currently 13 dpo today and i just noticed some spotting. i got my bfp on 10 dpo...

ive got a history of loss/bleeding in early pregnancy...and needless to say, im afraid.

just hoping this is IB...and wondering when/if you ladies got yours.

If it was implantation bleeding, it would have happened before your bfp I think. I spotted several times in the 1st tri with ds and everything was fine.

have you DTD or anything to upset your cervix? Cramping? I'd see a Dr on monday JIC. I'd base it on your own history really...hugs Becks.

thanks you two.

ive read a few things about IB that say to expect it around 4-5wks pregnant. im one day shy of 4wks...so its right on schedule for IB.

ive had IB earlier than that before as well...and just plain bleeding in both of my pregnancies that went on to term...

im not cramping beyond the usual twingy cramps of early pregnancy...and my test this morning was nice and positive...and darker than yesterdays...so that is reassuring in a sense.

the bleeding is rusty brown and very light...

guess its a wait and see thing.

:hugs: I hope its IB or just from your cervix. I had bleeding/spotting for the entire first trimester with ds.

I had it right around 6 weeks with DD, and it lasted a couple of days. I guess you're more experienced with m/c than me, but for the one I had there was spotting AND pretty much constant cervical pain. So, I would guess if there's no pain, then, yes, it could very well be implantation spotting. Some women have it when the embryo implants and then some have it when the placenta implants. I would think many could miss it, too, b/c it's really not much for me, but I'm just observant b/c of my own unhealthy fear of another m/c. Oh, and I had the spotting with this one, too, my third. GL, and I hope it's a sign of a baby to come in 8 months!:hugs:

That totally sounds like IB.:goodvibes:

It could be IB but it also could be low progesterone. Can you get your hands on some progesterone cream or pills? If you have a history maybe your health care provider can give you some pills or you can get natural progesterone cream at some health food stores.

I had what might have been IB during the first week after my BFP but my blood test showed low progesterone so my OB at the time recommended applying progesterone cream 2x a day and it seems to keep my levels up until the bean was more established.

Sending sticky bean vibes your way! :hugs:

thanks!

i started taking prometrium (vaginally and orally) the first night i got what i thought might be a bfp...i had been prescribed to take it 3 xs a day, but i was only doing 2...i took the 3rd dose today when i noticed the spotting.

I had IB at about 6 weeks pregnant. I didn't even know I was pregnant and thought it was a funny period - that's how heavy it was.

Also, when I was pregnant with my youngest, OB said that any blood that's rusty or brown is old blood and isn't anything to be concerned about. He said bright red blood was all I needed to worry about, and even then it needed to be a lot.

I've got several m/c's under my belt too mama and my heart goes out to you. It's so scary.

I had that dark brown bleeding too- I think it was later than implantation bleeding- but my ob said it was old blood- maybe the blood from the implantation that did not come out at the time- all was fine...I hope it's the same for you mama!
Hugs! I know it's so scary getting past that first 12 weeks..

Re: if implantation bleeding occurred when did it happen?
 
With DS I got IB at 7dpo and got a BFP at 8dpo.

With these babies I got a BFP at 8dpo and had IB at 10dpo when #2 implanted.

:goodvibes: I'm sure everything is fine!

I didn't have any IB, I hope you and baby are doing well. I remember I lost part of my mucus plug at 4 months and freaked out a bit....till the doc told me that even if it was, it would regenerate. Good luck

Re: if implantation bleeding occurred when did it happen?
 
I need an 'other' option to your survey.......
I had a 'period' at 12 DPO that started on June 28 and lasted 2 days. My cycles are usually 5 days. I took a test after it and it was negative. I didn't test again until the last week in July and got a BFP.
My temps never fully dropped like they normally do before the cycle on the 28th.
So, when we have our ultrasound on the 29th I can have a better answer for you, but untill then, we'll go with either 12 DPO or never..... :headscratch:
And I'm either 8 weeks or 12 weeks today. :headscratch:

Re: if implantation bleeding occurred when did it happen?
 
i love how the stats on the poll are consistent w/ what ive read that about 30% of women experience bleeding/implantation bleeding in early pregnancy...

as for me, the spotting was very light...then nearly disappeared...and is sort of there/not there when i look for it w/ the toilet paper...but its small brown dots if anything...im thinking it is IB and that im ok.

i have a good feeling about this pregnancy. :thumbsup: just need to keep in the positive...and be grateful for every day im pregnant...

keep my mind off the long term for now. :)

thanks SO MUCH for all of your answers, experiences...it really helps to feel connected to others during this time.

7 + 8 DPO, +HPT at 10 DPO. More bleeding/spotting (bright red, brown... all sorts of colors and stuff) from 4 weeks until 9 weeks.
