Hello there! I've been ttc since December as my periods finally kicked in while still breast feeding my then 9 month old son. My periods seem to be between 35 and 38 days apart. Last month I started using ovulation tests so been timing sex with them and just when ever we could get chance!
So on the 4th June I thought I was having a period on day 32. It was very light, and bright red. It was on and off for 9 days! (Usually only 4 days) when it finally stopped I started everyday with ovulation tests again. 4 days later the line had got darker then the control line. And stayed dark for days and never got lighter. I decided since I had loads of pregnancy tests I'd just use one for the heck of it.. BFP straight away! 3 positive tests later I was a little stunned!
I used a clear blue this morning, positive again, 1-2 weeks.
So my wondering is was that long bleed a period, or implant bleeding or maybe even a miscarry? I don't know if I should go docs for blood test or talk to the midwife, but it just seems a big jump from if using the first day of a period it's either im 7 weeks pregnant or nearly 3 weeks from the last bleed!
Anyone had this confusion? Thanks for reading and any replies would be great full!

It's almost impossible to get a false positive. Congratulations!!!

Positive tests pick up on hormones that are only there if you're pregnant. So congratulations!

Phoned the midwife and she says that we will go from my last bleed, so 3 weeks. Now I'm worried that that my positive tests are going to disappear as I've been doing them everyday and they seem a little fainter. I'm going to stop doing them as it's causing too much stress. I'm feeling very bloated and sick most of the time now, even worse in evening like my first pregnancy. I'll not be happy till a scan haha

Congratulations Jelly. With DD1, even when I was nine months and the size of a small country, I worried that it was all a mistake and just cake. She'll be 13 this year ... thanks

Thought I'd follow this up in case anyone else has this happen cause I know I've gone through the whole internet to get my head around things! So I kept getting fainter and fainter, till it went completely and the next day I started bleeding. Heartbreaking! I'm clinging on to the fact it could be implant bleeding but I think it's probably too heavy. It's 10 days early for a period so my cycles are screwed up or this is the miscarriage. But thank you for the kind words and I hope to get positives that stay and get darker smile my 15 month old has been giving me big cuddles smile
