    Possibly pregnant/Implantation bleeding
    tmoore1987 posted:
    My husband and I have been ttc since I stopped my BC in January. We currently have a 5 year old son. I have been keeping track of my menstrual and ovulation cycles. My EXP was on the 1st of this month and I started bleeding on April 28th. It started out light and pink and then heavy like a regular flow over the weekend. I think that's it's implantation bleeding because I didn't have ANY cramps whatsoever. I took a test and got a BFN. I did some research and saw that implantation bleeding is normally a light flow or spotting. Has anyone had heavy implantation bleeding or menstrual cycle and found out a short time later they were pregnant? I'm scheduled for my annual checkup on May 10 however I'm curious to know in the meantime.

    Yes, some women have period-like bleeding in early pregnancy they mistake for their period.

    that is interesting because I had symptoms of pregnancy. Got what I believed was a cycle and then the symptoms never left the nausea is still here. I ate gelato last night and almost immediately I was nauseous. I am not a first time mom but unsure if I am pregnant but I clearly do have the symptoms

    Did you have your annual check-up on May 10? If so, what did they say?

    I had my annual on the 10th but no baby.-83D-E22 However I did go back and recalculated my cycle and I was fertile during that time, the 8th through the 11th. ( Hubby and I were definitely busy then lol) Right now I am 13 dpo and af is expected tomorrow. I took a dollar store hpt and got a bfn. However I have been having some symptoms though, just not pms symptoms. I've been queasy and having an empty feeling, no appetite, and mild cramping....a little sharp at times....I'm my lower tummy on the right. I keep laughing to myself because I didn't keep track of ANY of this when we were trying for our son lol. The most I did was take a couple of those fertility tests. If af doesn't show up by the end of this week, I'll test again. I'll check back in then. Fingers crossed! -83D-E09
