My son is 20 months old, and my husband and I decided to start TTC earlier this mongh. About four days before the expected arrival date of AF, I had light bleeding that I thought was the start of my period. I had some implantation bleeding with my son, so I thought it was possible that's what I was experiencing again, but it was a little heavier this time.
So, as most of us do, I scoured the internet for information. There are so many different descriptions of implantation bleeding on the internet, but most resources describe it as just a few dark or very light spots. Also, so many woman that post questions about their bleeding, wondering if it's implantation bleeding or AF, never provide an update about a BFN or BFP result. Very frustrating!
Well, I took a PT last night, and got a BFP!!! So, here's what I have to say to all those hopeful mommies out there. Relax! Everyone is different. I happened to be one of the "less than a third" women that has had implantation bleeding with both pregnancies. Additionally, it's been different each time. Although my bleeding this time started a few days early and was mostly dark brown, there was some red as well, and it was definitely more than a few spots for two days. Basically, I wore a light tampon, and it covered about 3/4 of it each day. The sign for me that it wasn't AF was that it stopped on the day AF should have arrived.
Sorry if this is TMI, but I hope it will help a few women searching for answers and looking for hope. Good luck!
