Anyone who has had Implantation bleeding during their pregnancy

Hi,
I just wanted to ask anyone who has been pregnant, and has had bleeding if they may have had bleeding similar to mine. the possibility of me being pregnant is definately there, as of the 12th Sept., and tthis is Oct 1st. My cycle is very regular, every 28 days, heavy bleeding. I was supposed to start two days ago. I have had on and off brown spotting for the last three days, and symptoms I never have before a period (heavy bloating, only a few cramps, gas, and very tired for the past week) however, I had red blood this morning that resembles my period, but is not heavy, and I have experienced no cramps. I'm going to wait to see how long it lasts and if it gets any heavier the next few days, but in the mean time I thought I would get others' opinions and hear different stories. I know that every body is different, and that maybe this kind of thing is not genetic, but my mother told me she bled the entire time she was pregnant with me, which is why she didn't realise until she was five months. I was two months premature. So, anyone have an opinion/similar story?

Sarah McMoyler, RN responded:
You definitely could be pregnant...several variables that we do not know- primarily- your age. The menstrual cycle shifts dramatically with age - and early pregnancy symptoms vary woman to woman. (My own sister bled steadily through her entire 40 week pregnancy and delivered a healthy full term baby.) In other situations, bleeding is a sign of a problem- which brings me to my final thought: whenever you have a question or concern: CHECK WITH YOUR OB/MIDWIFE. Better to safe than sorry or worry yourself to pieces.
