So, first round TTC no 4... according to OPK I’m now 10dpo. Yesterday I got 2 pathetically faint positives on 2 IC. This morning I did another IC and, on wiping, pink blood. Test looked negative too. I now feel a bit crampy but have felt odd twinges for the past 4 days Wtf is occurring here? AF? Implantation bleed? Alien invasion??
Poptart you can have some light pink on the toilet paper and be pregnant. It's called 'implantation bleeding' and it's generally what the midwives/doctors call the early stages of pregnancy where everything is bedding in and settling.
I know what implantation bleeding is @sleep. But you can't get a positive pregnancy test before implantation occurs. The pregnancy hormones are only released after implantation and can usually only be detected by a test a couple of days later, so it doesn't make sense that she would have implantation bleeding after getting a positive.
I don’t know what the answer is OP but with regards to the concept of “implantation bleeding”, I had a bleed at ten weeks with my second and was told by the sonographer that it was implantation bleeding. Apparently the implantation can cause a bruise type pocket of blood that can come out at any time, so light bleeding doesn’t mean that you’re definitely out, particularly if it doesn’t progress to a full-blown period. Good luck OP!
Obviously I don’t mean that the baby actually implanted at ten weeks, that would be ridiculous! I mean that the implantation process can cause a pocket of blood to form, a bit like a bruise, that doesn’t necessarily leave the body immediately. In my case, I was ten weeks pregnant when the blood came out. The sonographer could see the pocket of blood on the scan and said more might come out (it didn’t).
