Having very light brown discharge today. I'm around 7-8dpo and never have this. Could it be IB?
Has anyone else had this, but ended up to be something different?

I had this yesterday! Only twice when I wiped at 7dpo - nothing since except lower cramps.
So I’m as stuck as you haha

Noirberry19 Sun 08-Nov-20 18:32:12

@Dixywitch19 thanks for reply.
Literally the same. Only when I wipe and light brown and hardly anything. Had it yesterday and today too with mild intermittent cramps. Always look for answers lol

Noirberry19 Sun 08-Nov-20 19:49:10

Haha. Hopefully we both have good news 🤞🏼

@Dixywitch19 how you feeling today? Xx

@noirberry19 slight back ache on my left side and a bit crampy. It’s uncomfortable rather than painful if that makes sense!
How’re you? Xx

Noirberry19 Mon 09-Nov-20 10:57:36

@Dixywitch19 fingers crossed for you!!
I'm still having cramps, but very mild. Like you said, not painful, just very aware of them.
Trying not to get my hopes up because body has played many tricks before, but never had this, so feeling positive c

Fingers crossed for us both! How long have you been ttc? X

Noirberry19 Mon 09-Nov-20 11:03:45

I'm also still having brown discharge. Day 3 now, so not sure if that's too long for IB? Are you still having any blood/spotting? Xx

Around 3 years now! Have had loads of tests etc. I have pco but otherwise everything ok. Have just had cycle of iui so different cycle this month, which is why I wonder if this is the reason for the discharge colour and cramps. Not sure. Remaining hopeful, whilst knowing it could be nothing.
How about you? Xx

Dixywitch19 Mon 09-Nov-20 11:14:02

No more spotting/bleeding for me and I expected more as dtd last night! I think IB can last 3-5days! That’s what google told me 😂

3 years here too! Had 3 rounds of clomid last year all didn’t work, miscarried after getting pg naturally in may which was awful.
Our hospital is absolutely shit tbh so we’ve just been left to it mostly.
I take inositol to help me ovulate as I don’t ovulate much naturally x

Noirberry19 Mon 09-Nov-20 11:58:05

Well, hopefully it's still good sign then!

Yeah, same. I had 6 rounds clomid last year. Worked, but didn't get pregnant.

Omg, so sorry for your loss. Must be so hard for you. Can't imagine that ❤️

Yeah, same again. This is why I come on here so much and google because the time just seems like it's going on and on and trying to be hopeful, but also realistic.

This month is different, as I've never had cramps or brown very light bleeding around 7-9dpo before, but could also be from iui injections I suppose, as that's first time I've had the injections. Hoping it's good news, but we'll see!

Don't have any other symptoms, although I have read they don't tend to really start until after what would be a missed period 🤞🏼 xx

I’ve no idea about IUI so I can’t help but happy to listen!
It was awful, especially having to be told by myself while my husband waited outside the ward because of covid. It just seems totally unfair.

I also feel this month is different I’ve never had spotting midway thru the 2ww.
It weighs so heavy on your head and heart after so long doesn’t it?
I find myself getting irrationally mad at people who think 3 months is soooo long but I know that’s my own issue because I also felt it was ages back then!

Fingers crossed for us both, would be nice to go through it with somebody! Xx

Noirberry19 Mon 09-Nov-20 16:48:42

Likewise. Happy to listen to anything and help where I can. Even just for support.
Omg, that does sound awful. I'm so sorry. Bad enough, without having that as an added upset!!

Yeah, that's why I feel different. Never ever had mid cycle bleed. I say bleed, it's brown and only when I wipe and very mild cramps/twinges.

Oh god, definitely!!
Haha, I know I think the same, but I too was the same all that time ago!

I really hope so for both of us. It would be so nice. Especially after the wait for us xxx

Mine was a reddy pink tinge but that’s it.
When are you testing or will you wait until your af is due?

God yes absolutely xxx

Noirberry19 Mon 09-Nov-20 20:00:59

I wonder if we'll be lucky.

Still no more symptoms for me.

I'm not sure yet. I've seen so many bfns and even though bleeding this cycle is a first, I'm still not getting my hopes up too much, so may wait a couple days or if I have symptoms, I will then.

How about you? Xxx

I ordered some internet cheapies last night that are due in 2 days so probably Thursday morning which should put me at 12dpo. Then I’ll go from there haha

No symptoms here at all, haven’t had the cramps since this morning and no more bleeding at all. Xxx

Noirberry19 Mon 09-Nov-20 22:04:03

@Dixywitch19 I might do the same. Think it should be an accurate result by then.

Bleeding has pretty much stopped for me too now. Still getting the off cramp every now and then, but really mild and not painful at all xxx

Very strange cycle for both of us!
I got told I had PCOS too but the only reasons I got was ‘you’re spotty’!!
I have one cyst on one of my ovaries but they’re not sure what type at the moment.

My cycles are massively irregular, until I miscarried I’d had 3 periods in the 12 months leading up to it and two of them were back to back the month I got pregnant and the month before.
I’m hoping my body’s starting to regulate as a result of being pg back in may, something positive I guess!

Glad your bleeding has stopped. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for us both xx

Noirberry19 Tue 10-Nov-20 07:24:19

@Dixywitch19 oh really?
They diagnosed me with that, but actually, at my most recent appt, they said it's actually pco and not the syndrome.

I hope they have regulated for you then and fingers crossed it is good news this month.

I know. Me too 🤞🏼

I don't feel any different still. Do you? Xxx

Dixywitch19 Tue 10-Nov-20 08:03:30

No nothing different here either.
I’m hoping that’s a good thing.
I kept a tww diary last month and done the same this month and it’s all lining up a bit too similarly though, however I had way more going on last month in the build up to af but I’ve nothing this time except an occasional bout of slight cramps! Xx
