Positive test but spotting

Hi all! I am 12 DPO and have been getting positive pregnancy test since 10 DPO but have started spotting and it’s increaseing. Has anyone had this ? Is this a chemical pregnancy?

Re: Positive test but spotting

  • @knottie1million It could be, or it may be fine.  Many women have spotting, especially during early PG, with no issues or problems.  I am not one of those women, and every time I had spotting during early PG, it lead to heavier bleeding, cramping, and MC.  You really can't do much but wait and see, and call your doctor if you are concerned.

    October 2015 - 1st MC.  7-8 weeks along. Suspected molar PG, but luckily just a MMC.

    June 2016 - 2nd MC: 4-5 weeks CP

    September 2016 - 3rd MC: 4-5 weeks CP

    RE 1: ALL the testing - 'unexplained'  "Yinz can do IVF or try on your own"

    Feb 2017 - 4th MC: 6 weeks

    RE 2: More tests. Still 'unexplained.'  Called fat for an entire hour-long appointment, cried a lot

    Feb 2019 - 5th MC: 6-7 weeks

  • I’ve had spotting resulting in loss and healthy pregnancy. I would suggest calling your doctor to have bloodwork done. Only they can tell you. Best of luck!

  • I would call your doctor and in the meantime, monitor with HPTs to see if the lines are getting darker. I spotted with my first pregnancy immediately and then it turned into heavier bleeding and I ultimately had a chemical pregnancy. With my current pregnancy, I spotted brown for two days at 6 weeks and it went away and I am approaching my 16th week. 

    Best of luck to you.
  • It sounds like it could go either way, between being implantation bleeding or something more. Keep us updated and hope you do well!
