cycle 11 and down in the dumps so this month i didnt bother with the whole temp thing but dtd roughly when i should have been ovulating and by checking my cm.

I'm now 7-9 dpo and the past 2 days ive had a couple of sudden sharp pains in my stomach. this hasnt lasted all day - only once or twice. Ive also had a kind of sicky feeling. I know this would be too early for morning sickness but ive readyou can sometimes feel sick during implantaion due to rise in hormones.

Also i have been getting spotting (up to a week before af - this hasnt happened for a couple of cycles though) however af is not due till the 8th/9th. And past 2 days (sorry i know its tmi) but ive noticed a couple of spots and its more a brown discharge? i dnt think its thrush or anything as theres no other symptoms but could this be implantation spotting?

im probably reaching and getting desperate - but has anyone experienced implantation spotting ?

I haven't, but up to 30% of people do experience implantation spotting... 7-9 dpo is the right time! You can start testing with an FRER soon...

Thanks physicskate ive thought i had it before but it was just my body adjusting to not being on the pill sad but this time seems different. really dont want to test early though incase i get my hopes up.

you here so much about people talking about "implantation bleeding" but feel like its some mythical symptom sad

It could be! Similar happened to me and I was pregnant. Just take a test, FR say u out can test with them 6 days before AF due. Good luck

Sounds promising Lucy.

I never had IB but I can't think why else you'd get spotting a week before AF. How long does IB last?

Good luck, keep us posted!

mrscharlie just out of curiosity was urs like a light period/spotting/discharge (sorry i know tmi ) theres no one i know to ask whos ever experienced it.

thanks alibaba from what ive read its supposed to last just a couple of days ? nothing this morning so far.

ive not been on the pillnow for 2 years - been ttc since november. i spoke to a nurse about spotting and she says it could be to do with all the hormones of the pill being out my system. the most ive had it is 7 days before my period but this would be longer if it was just "normal" spotting for mself

Is was brown discharge with a little red spotting. We weren't actively trying at the time so I thought it was my period. I'm usually quite heavy and need super plus tampons by the second time but with the IB I never needed more than a sanitary towel. 2 weeks later I was out for drinks and mentioned to my sil that I felt really warm and tired. Due said she knew I was pregnant and I took a test the next day and bfp.

aw thanks mrscharlie that sounds promising. Mines is like a brown discharge with a couple of spots - literal spots of red. ive been feeling a little crampy today like AF is going to come - would be gutted and mega confussed - i usually only get cramps the day AF is on her way and tht would be a 24 day cycle - wtf??? guess ill just have to wait and see.

i know all this worrying wont be helping sad i just get the feeling ill be toddling down to the gp practice shortly and asking for some helpsad
