Have you ever had a implantation bleed, when your af was due and how long did it last?

Thought I was pregnant, af came day late but only lasted 2.5 days, think I got an evaporation line the morning af came. so faint you had to tilt it to the light.

My period has not stopped, I still feel pregnancy symptoms but not sure if they are in my head.

I normally have a 7 day period.

If you were my would you test tomorrow or am I just being stupid?

Could there be another reason for this short period?

Also if you get an evaporation line does that mean the test was just neg or that the test was faulty and that you should do it again?

Thanks

my period has now stopped - wish I use the preview

I'd test again in a day or so. I had what I thought was a heavier/more painful period than normal, which started a day early - turn out to be a bleed and I was actually pregnant with DD, who is now two.

babytime Mon 14-Jul-08 12:04:05

really - sounds promising then.

I did test though the day it started (i was a dat late) and if I was pregnant you would imagaine the positive line would have been strong.

Someone kindly gave me the link to a website which tells you all about evaporation lines and it described my test to a t so I decided to accept I was not pregnant. But now my period seems to have stopped and its strange.

I had a chemical pregnancy in April and this happened but I was shattered for the week after my period. I feel ok.

Ladies,

I'm in a similar situation and could do with some advice.

I came off the pill back in April and since then have had two regular (although 35 CD) periods.

Next one is due 23rd. I ovulation on around Sunday 6th through to Tuesday 8th (last week), I think. EWCM and OV pains, but yesterday I went to the loo and there was some CM with brown/pink staining. Today I've been to the loo and CM is gone but there's brownish blood. Feels like AF pains aswell, but surely this is too soon since AF not due until 23rd?!

Haven't had this at all since coming off the pill, so very odd....

Any suggestions?

check this out - sounds promising to me

An evaporation line is an evaporation line. I think in your last thread you said you waited ages before it appeared.

I would doubt you are pregnant with both negative tests and your period. Mim=ne has been short this month but I had 5 negative tests in teh 6 days I was waiting for my period to arrive (It was late) so I am assuming I can't possibly be pregnant.

If you want to test, test. But I would say if it's still negative then don't try to convince yourself you might be and just concentrate on teh next month.

pregnancy Symptoms are very similar to those you get when you are menstruating.

i had brownish spotting for a day or two with ds, then nothing. my friend had what she thought was a period but turned out she had been preg already at that point when she was scanned.

it differs alot from one woman to another. i'd test in a few days just so you're not driving yourself mad.

babytime Mon 14-Jul-08 12:16:26

Hello beanieb - no the line appeared after a couple of minutes. It was definitley there but sounded just like an evaporation line.

The other tests I done were the days leading up to my period.

I know i'm probably being stupid. But I have read posts on here from people who did not get positives until they were five or six weeks or who like myself had as period when pregnant. This happened with my first and I had no symptoms and only found out when abour 8 weeks pregnant so I am not sure if i would of tested postive around the time of 4 weeks.

I think I will see what happens tomorrow, if my period has not started then 2.5 days is not right and i will test again.

Maybe I have stopped it myself with all this thinking. Wish i could forget about it for at least 10 mins and DO SOME BLOODY WORK

i had an implantaion bleed with dd2 which i thought was the start of my period but it only lasted a day then i got a + test 4 days later(cheap tests though).

i had spotting for 3 weeks on and off with dd3.

if the line has even a tiny hint of colour its usually a faint +.(IME)

beanieb Mon 14-Jul-08 12:18:34

Hiya

I am probably coming over as being really rude or unfriendly - I don't mean to smile

Just that I have been in this position myself and I know how obsessive it can become. I am trying not to hope against hope.

good luck for you though grin

Pregtestqu Mon 14-Jul-08 12:25:16

I had one with DC2, lasted less than a day

I think I may have just had another one, I thought my period was starting Friday, was still spotting on Saturday but all stopped now and got a v faint positive on an ebay test today

can you see a line?

babytime Mon 14-Jul-08 12:26:36

Honestly dont worry about it - sometimes you just need to be told

I know I am 90% not but I just have this feeling that i may. I guess in four days time when I see a BFN I will accept it then and move on.

It just irritates me that my period can not just arrive, be a normal period and then go away.

my head is just being messed with.

babytime Mon 14-Jul-08 12:29:42

Pregtestqu - sounds like a congratulations to you then!

Just been to the loo and absolutely nothing - clean pad.

I have one test left in the house.

If I was pregnant I do not have to worry about the HCG levels being strong enough now do i?

So i can test anytime of the day right?

DawnAS Mon 14-Jul-08 13:33:01

Hi babytime,

One thing I forgot to mention earlier, my friend (who's having her second baby in August - lucky thing...) said that two of her closest friends had short AFs around the normal time of AF so assumed that they weren't pregnant.

I've read on the internet today (sorry, I can't remember where now) that it can be quite common to have an "almost" normal period in the first month and still be pregnant, so as much as you need to keep your feet on the ground, there could still be a chance...

PS: Keeping everything crossed for you! grin

Hi babytime, I had an implantation bleed this time that lasted three days, but was very light. Looked on the net and it said they can last up to three days, so maybe that is what you had?

Would imagine that if your test came up with a faint line a few days ago then if you were pg it would be stronger now. I used cheapy strip tests, and the strength of the line changed within 24 hours. Not sure if those are what you're using?

Good luck testing!

monkeybumsmum Mon 14-Jul-08 14:06:25

ps. I did the second test in the afternoon, and still got a stronger line - good luck!

babytime Mon 14-Jul-08 14:24:16

Thanks Dawnas

Monkeybumsmum - just copied what i wrote just now on another thread im on

>>>>>

Right i've had it up to here with tests.

Just used FR and after a couple of minutes, a second line started to appear - you had to really squint to see it in light of the window. But about 10 mins later could not see it.

Another evaporation line? Two in a pack? Both evaporation lines?

Anyway BFN, period stopped and so it looks like my period was 2.5 days long this month instead of 7 days.

Is there something wrong with me then?

I'm so fed up!!!

monkeybumsmum Mon 14-Jul-08 15:09:09

That's so wierd - not surprised you're fed up. Why don't you give it a couple of days and maybe test again? You know your body best, if you think AF wasn't like it normally is then maybe something is going on?

I remember when I was first pg with ds, I thought I'd started my AF - had v light bleeding for a couple of days but then nothing. Didn't put two and two together until a few days later (when I was seeing silver stars) and then did a test, which was +ve.

Hope you get an answer soon - it must be driving you mad!

Pregtestqu Mon 14-Jul-08 15:31:38

babytime - try to stop peeing on sticks if you can smile it's expensive unless you buy cheapies from ebay

you are best to wait until the morning and use the first pee of the day as the hormone should be more concentrated then

nauseous Mon 14-Jul-08 19:55:32

good luck babytime. I know how hard it is to focus on something else while you wait - especially when the situation isn't clear.

DH and I were just saying last night how blo*dy hard you try NOT to get pregnant and how relieved you are when the AF comes - how things have changed!!

babytime Mon 14-Jul-08 21:47:10

I know - it so silly!

Today I had no bleeding at all then this evening when making dinner I felt it begin again.

It was brown and now gone back to red but still light.

I am just going to think of it as a period and if its not then I will find out soon enough

In the mean time I will TRY and go on as normal.

I have no tests left and I am not going to buy any either for at least a week wink

DawnAS Tue 15-Jul-08 20:36:23

Hey Babytime,

We seem to be having exactly the same thing!!

As I mentioned, I'm not due AF until 23rd but I had browny/red CM on Sunday evening. On Monday morning really low abdominal cramps, like AF was coming and went to the loo and wiped myself (sorry about TMI) and there was browny blood but very light... Then (really TMI sorry), you know sometimes if you're wiping yourself when it's AF time and if you're quite heavy you see the drops of blood going into the loo, well there was just a couple of drops of brown blood in the loo. Since then, nothing yesterday afternoon and then 4am this morning, back to browny/red CM again and a few drops of brown blood. Also AF type cramps again this morning. But this afternoon, CM back to normal colour...

I've heard that loads of people do have what they think are AFs at their normal time and they turn out to be PG, so I'm still keeping my fingers crossed, but it is a bit strange... The main reason that I'm keeping my feet on the ground is that I do get browny CM for 2 or 3 days before AF normally, but not normally a week early!!
