Hi all I think I have got my first BFP this morning...but I don't know whether to believe it or not. I was due my AF on Thursday (which would have been 11dpo...I have a short LP). Started spotting the evening before which is normal for me, but then it never developed into full AF. Continued to spot Thurs and Fri and a little bit this morning. Decided to take a FRER this morning (13dpo) and it came back positive. ICs were major squinters. My DH is away so I have no one to speak to about it until he gets back tonight. What do people think about the continued spotting? Is this going to be a chemical/false alarm? I don't want to get my hopes up. Thanks all
Thanks for the reply! Yeah, the spotting was a browny colour. I've heard that it can happen around the time that AF would normally appear so hoping for that. Don't think I'll let myself believe anything just yet...
Definately a bfp, congratulations. Spotting is common in early pregnancy, as long as its dark and isnt accompanied with pain or a temparature i wouldnt worry. If you are concerned phone your out of hours doctor, but otherwise enjoy knowing you are going to be able to tell your dh something exciting when he gets home, good luck op.x
Thanks again everyone. Good to hear positive stories about successful pregnancies with spotting involved. There's barely been anything there today, only the teeniest tiniest bit of brown when I wipe after going for a wee. No pain, really. I maybe have felt the odd dull ache but that might be because I am thinking about it so much! Keeping my fingers crossed.
