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??

It could be implantation it could be a chemical.

It can't be implantation as you only get a positive after implantation has happened. If your bleeding and getting a bfn, unfortunately it sounds like a chemical pregnancy. Sorry op xx

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.

It’s stopped now... was just that one wipe confused the positives were pathetically light.

Some I have to admit I can't see a squinter on that test. I think you're going to just have to give it a few days and test again.

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.

It’s happened again. Bit heavier this time. Maybe it is af showing up early? Not the end of the world. Only first month TTC

I do see a line on that test

SleepFreeZone Wed 25-Oct-17 10:23:10

But it's still called implantation bleeding in the first few weeks confused

So, it hasnt got any heavier. Usually AF is pretty heavy by now. Guess it’s a few days wait to test again 🙄

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!

Implantation at 10 weeks?? Not heard of that before

IndianaMoleWoman Wed 25-Oct-17 20:37:00

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).

Aaah I see! I’m hoping this is IB and I get a bfp in the next few days! 🤞
