Does anyone do that thing where, even though AF arrives yiu still hang on to the hope that you are one of those women who have periods whilst pregnant? I do and it is bloody torturous.

I had bleeding throughout when pg with DD, so this time I never quite give up hope even when my period shows up. This month bleeding started 8dpo so of course I start thinking implantation.....even though it is too much to be that.....

Someone slap me with a wet fish please sad

Hard not to hope I mean!

Yep feel like that every month, even though the three times I have been pregnant I don't bleed. But every time that spotting starts I think I could be, I never believe it till I have a full on bleed and even then I don't really. It sucks!

Thank you both biscuit all round.

This month my boobs are huge too and havent deflated, which prob just means I have enormous knockers disease ......but I am taking it as a sign

I am exactly the same. I am currently on day 26 of cycle and have all my usual classic PMS symptoms. But I'm saying to myself, well they're the same as early preg symptoms. And then I obsess about them and poke my boobs incessantly to ser how sore they are, and inspect the loo roll practically with a microscope for spotting.
Then when AF inevitably comes, I tell myself it's implantation bleeding. Last month I refused to wear proper San pro and almost had a leakage accident at the airport.
The whole thing is outrageously annoying and if it all happened to men, they would have sorted out an instant conception test. We just put up with too much shit

Oh yes.... the "if I dont need to wear protection I could still be pregnant game"... meh

I also think sometimes that I might be one of those ladies who have periods during pregnancy. Its just clutching at straws!

I think and do this too, especially when period comes early. I even do pregnancy test after the period ends just to check!

I am on day 28 of cycle with v sore and unmistakeable AF cramps. (I have endometriosis)
And yet, and yet, I am still hoping that I have conceived. It's a mugs game...
