So the only possible occasion where I could have conceived would have been the 20th June. I had my period around 2 weeks later when it was due and it resembled a normal period for me, fairly heavy and got lighter towards the end. I didn't think anything else of it until now.
I've been feeling very off and unwell the last week ish. Just ignored it as I'm always tired. But this evening whilst I was in the shower I thought I might book an app with the doctors because something just isn't right (pregnancy obviously not being on my mind because of my period) .....then I started to piece together my symptoms - the all too familiar symptoms of early pregnancy.
Now, I suppose what I'm asking is has anyone ever had period like bleeding when pregnant? It wasn't light so wouldn't be anything like implantation bleeding. I know I'll just have to take a test if things continue but I just wanted to see if anyone had experienced this?
Yes, definitely had this before. First time resulted in an mc I'm afraid to say. Second time around (exactly a year later, weirdly), the bleeding was really heavy, almost clots, yet I felt strangely that I was pregnant. I was, and despite the heavy bleeding at the beginning (and very light spotting about 6 months in), I had DD, who is now 4!
Not the responses I thought I was going to get, I didn't think it was possible!
Well as I'm going to town tomorrow I might just pick up a test then I'll know for sure either way. We haven't planned another as my youngest is only 5 months! Maybe my body is still just trying to get back to normal.
Oh gosh, if you're only 5 months post birth, I'd definitely say its your body trying to get back to normal. It can take a while for periods to even out... You never know, though, so good luck for the test!!
I would test just incase. I did get this and I was pregnant, but it was t viable and my numbers peaked at 200. Man it dragged on and on though! Do definitely test though as a period then a pos test can end up being ectopic, that's the bit that worried me and I got my arse down the doctors.
